The 21-year-old actor was performing the Chris Brown hit “Take You Down” when he suddenly fell as he walked backwards near the edge of the stage.
With the audience still in shocked after his fall, Reid climbed up on another side of the stage and continued performing as if nothing happened. As the saying goes, ‘the show must go on’.
While he did not appear hurt after the fall, his handler Viva Artists Agency said Reid was in pain for the rest of the show. His forearm was bruised, as seen in a photo posted by Cosmopolitan Philippines on Instagram.
The young actor was not able to attend the after-party after Viva had intended “to rush him to the hospital to have him checked but Reid opted to just head home immediately to rest.”
Reid was lauded on social media for pulling off the show despite the accident. The phrase ‘We Are So Proud Of You James Reid’ is still trending on Twitter as of this writing with netizens saying that James is very professional and his fans telling how proud they are of their idol.
Get well soon James!
