JLS singer Aston Merrygold had a scare onstage incident on Saturday, when he attempted a backflip but bungled it and landed dangerously on his back.
The accident during the concert was captured on video, and the clip has gone viral on TikTok and Instagram.
After his fall, Merrygold, 35, appeared unscathed, popped back up and the boyband resumed performing as if nothing had happened.
One fan commented on TikTok, “The way he just got up and continued absolute pro, I’d [have] been sitting there thinking what just happened [could] have been so much worse.”
Still, many observers were freaked out by the risky mistake and were worried the singer wasn’t OK.
Merrygold and his wife, Sarah-Lou, tried to ease concerns with an Instagram post saying the singer was healthy.
“A little sore but he’s made of strong stuff,” she wrote alongside a picture of the couple hugging. “That step as a lot to answer for though!”
JLS, a British music group, first skyrocketed to fame on “The X Factor,” a UK reality show, in 2008. They split up in 2018 and reunited in 2021.
The group also includes Oritsé Williams, 36, Marvin Humes, 38, and JB Gill, 36.
