Chi Tahani, 12, took the stage to audition for Abdul, 53, Jason Derulo and Nigel Lythgoe on the Monday, June 6, episode of the hit Fox dance competition.

After killing an energetic routine to Beyoncé’s 2011 hit “Countdown,” all three judges stood up and unanimously waved golden tickets, indicating that the preteen could advance to the next round.

Tahani collapsed to the floor in disbelief before running over to the judges’ table to hug each of them. After embracing the “Straight Up” singer, the contestant covered her mouth as her cheeks puffed up.

“Are you OK, honey?” a concerned Abdul asked Tahani, who threw up seconds later. “It’s OK, honey. It’s OK.”

The embarrassed dance hopeful quickly apologized. The choreographer, who took the gross situation in stride, joked, “I’ve never had anyone just vomit on me like that!”
