Wendy Moten returns to The Voice after she broke her wrist and fractured her elbow in a nasty fall

Wendy Moten returned to The Voice with the casting of two arms after tripping over a piece of stage equipment during last Tuesday’s live results show.

While the 57-year-old contestant initially assured viewers that she was only “a little bruised” from the nasty fall, the Come In Out of the Rain crooner suffered a broken right elbow and a broken left wrist.

The seasoned backup singer, who has worked for Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, opened up Monday night about the scary ordeal of coaching Blake Shelton on NBC’s musical competition series.

“So you had the fall on the podium. The next thing I know is that you tell [Voice host] carson [Daly] you’re okay,” her coach Shelton recalled during one of their rehearsals.

“Before I knew it, we were going to rehearsal that night and you’re in the hospital.”

Prior to her performance of Dolly Parton’s Jolene, the eight-time Grammy nominee jokingly asked her to “promise” she wouldn’t break both of her legs.

In response, she playfully shot back: ‘I don’t break anything’! They’ll have to wheel me out in a wheelchair, and I’ll sing and they can drive me out again.’

Ouch!  While initially assuring viewers that she was only

Ouch! While initially assuring viewers that she was only “a little bruised” from the nasty fall, the 57-year-old participant suffered a broken right elbow and a broken left wrist.

The Memphis resident’s accident happened after she, her coach and fellow Team Blake members Paris Winningham and Lana Scott sang Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch) together.

Winningham and Scott immediately rushed to lend a hand, but Shelton, standing with his back to her, did not see her fall.

When Gwen saw Stefani’s husband Moten lying on the floor, he went to check on her safety and well-being.

‘Is everything all right?’ asked host Carson Daly. ‘Let’s take a second. We just dropped someone.’

Shelton walked back onto the stage to see if Moten had been injured as he and a crew member helped the contestant walk off the stage.

“We hope she’s okay,” Daly said, before asking her himself a few minutes later.

When the show returned from a hiatus, Daly stood next to Moten who said she was “a little bruised,” but “OK.”
