If there's one thing worth remembering from the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, it's the moment when Miguel decided to awkwardly jump between two parts of the stage mid-performance and crash-landed on the heads of a couple female audience members. It was the leg drop heard 'round the world that inspired a thousand memes and lots of damage control on Miguel's part. But if you thought all the repercussions from the incident were in the past, it's come back to haunt Miguel.
