Miguel was ORDERED not to attempt a dangerous jump over the crowd during his performance at the Billboard Music Awards because producers believed it was too dangerous … but the singer ignored them … sources connected to the production tell TMZ.

We’re told … Miguel approached producers before rehearsals and asked if he could try to jump over the crowd during his performance … but producers shot down the idea, telling Miguel it was just too dangerous.

But when showtime came around, Miguel blew off the order … and producers’ fears were realized when he botched the jump and leg dropped a female fan … slamming her head against the stage.

Now, the victim’s lawyer says she may have suffered a brain injury as a result … and a lawsuit could be on the way.

We reached out to Miguel for comment — but he never called us back.
