It was the tumble seen 'round the world...but what happened after? 

Symone Black stole the spotlight during the beginning of American Idol's infamous Hollywood Week, but it wasn't her vocals that had everyone talking. The 16-year-old had just finished her rendition of "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay" when she fell off the stage. Executive producer Nigel Lythgoe immediately called for a medic and then Idol decided to cut it there. How rude!

So is Black all right? Here's what we can tell you...

Fret not, Idol viewers. Despite the nasty tumble Black took, which worried judge Steven Tyler, who noted that the teenager had hit her head, a rep for the show assures us she is fine.

"Symone is OK," an Idol rep tells E! News. "She continued in Hollywood Week."

Phew! We're glad to hear the little lady with the gorgeous voice is on the mend because that final scene sure was intense, with Lythgoe and host Ryan Seacrest rushing to Black's side after she collapsed and lay motionless.

Viewers will get to learn exactly what happened to Black during tonight's episode of Idol. "I know you're all going crazy," Lythgoe tweeted after the episode. "You'll have to wait until tomorrow. That's why I'm a mean producer."

While some would call that a cliffhanger, having the episode end with Black's collapse, Lythgoe defends the decision, saying, "It's not a 'cliffhanger.' She didn't hang, she fell."
