The American Idol Contestant, Funke Lagoke rushed to the hospital after he fainted and fell flat on his face after his appearance with fellow singer Ronda Felton on Monday night episode.
The frightening incident occurred when he received feedback from the judges after his appearance with fellow contestants and duo partners.
The couple appeared ‘tell him’, the song written and recorded by Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion.
In the clip of the episode, lagoke hands can be seen trembling when Judge Lionel Richie criticized their performance “Tell him.”
“Kake, you get yourself until the end. The problem is …” Richie said before Lagoke fainted, landed with a loud sound.
Richie and Panelist Lukas Bryan immediately ran to the stage to help staff members present for Lagoke before he rushed to the hospital.
The show later revealed that Lagoke had been “treated for dehydration and released from the hospital.”
“She will return for the showstopper round,” the statement added.
Richie, 71, told Felton that she and Lagoke had both advanced to the next round.
“Both of you deserve to go through,” he said. “I want you to know, congratulations, okay? I know that was traumatic, okay? But we’re here for you. We’re family, okay?”
Despite the happy news, Felton still looked worried over her duet partner, saying: “She’s gotta get some stitches.”
Katy Perry then added, “But she’s gonna come back tomorrow and she’s gonna be singing for showstopper.”
“I’m just worried about her health more than anything. I feel like that’s the number one important thing right now,” Felton said in a confessional. “I just want her to know that I love her, that I care about her. I want her to be okay.”
Funke, whose name is Funmike Lagoke, is a former Miss Nigeria USA winner. She competed in the beauty pageant back in 2019 and won the title.
