Justin Bieber knows how to put on a good appearance when it comes to foreign talk shows (how 'bout those mad Rubik's Cube skills!). But the Biebs had to sit this one out.

The teen singer was scheduled to appear on one of Germany's most popular game shows, Wetten Dass, but was forced to cancel his appearance when another performer's stunt went terribly wrong.

The live broadcast to 10 million viewers was canceled Saturday when 23-year-old Samuel Koch attempted to jump over a moving car wearing shoes with a suspension system and ended up severely injuring himself.

Bieber, who was booked for the TV gig along with Robbie Williams and Phil Collins, tweeted about the incident.

"Just want to let my people in Germany know I won't be on Wetten Dass tonight as an accident has taken place and we all don't think it is right to continue. Please pray for Samuel Koch & his family as we wait and hope for his health and safety."

The Biebs went on, "Germany I'm sorry we couldn't perform tonight but some things are more important than putting on a show. We will be back I promise. Thank u"

Its reported that Koch suffered multiple back injuries and fractures and underwent surgery today.

Fortunately, his condition is no longer life-threatening, but he remains in critical condtion.
