Show Can't Go On: Stunt Mishap Thwarts Justin Bieber Appearance on German TV THR

Performances by Justin Bieber and Take That on "Wanna Bet?," Germany's top TV variety show, were canceled after an amateur stuntman was severely injured during a stunt staged during the live show's broadcast, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

The 23-year-old man was trying to jump over a speeding car driven by his father when he hit the windshield and crashed to the ground. He was taken to hospital and is in a medically induced coma undergoing treatment for a severe spinal injury, the Reporter says.

The longrunning show was immediately canceled by broadcaster ZDF, the report says.
