Criss Angel isn't scared of anything.
The illusionist made that perfectly clear over the weekend when he performed the stunt which landed him in the hospital last week. Oh dang!
As we previously reported, the 49-year-old was rushed to the hospital on Friday evening after he lost consciousness during his Las Vegas show, Mindfreak Live!. The stunt?? Well, Angel was trying to escape from a straitjacket while hanging upside-down. So scary!
But the famed magician wasn't badly injured as he was released from the medical center after only a handful of hours.
In fact, it seems as though Criss was determined to pull off the trick, as on Saturday he returned to his Sin City stage and performed the escape without any hiccups. And fans certainly took notice of Angel's bravery as they took to Twitter to sing his praises (below)!
Get used to seeing more of Paris Jackson!
The 18-year-old is set to make her acting debut on FOX's new show Star, about a trio of talented singers, later this season.

Paris Jackson had a really dark moment with Criss Angel!
For those who didn't know, Michael Jackson's daughter first met the illusionist years ago when the late pop star took her to see one of his performances.
Well, for an episode of the illusionist's A&E show Trick'd Up, things got really intense during her appearance as she clasped hands with Angel as part of a mental exercise — except it took a turn.
The celebrity magician said to the 18-year-old:

A terrified Paris responded:
Criss Angel Is Unrecognizable In New Clean-Cut Look While Walking The Red Carpet At A Charity Event!
We need to take a double take!
On Monday evening, Criss Angel looked almost unrecognizable as he walked the red carpet with his son for the Heal Every Life Possible charity event at the Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. While the magician normally dons a rock star ensemble, Angel rocked a dashing suit for the pediatric cancer research and treatment benefit.
Not to mention, Criss' young son Johnny also dressed up for the event as he wore a crisp white shirt and navy slacks. Too cute!
We can only imagine the 48-year-old got spiffy for this particular benefit as the cause is near and dear to his heart. In case you forgot, the illusionist's toddler was diagnosed
We're SO happy for Criss Angel and his baby boy!
In an exclusive interview with Us Weekly, Criss made the AMAZING revelation that his son Johnny Sarantako's cancer is in remission. The two-year-old was first diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia last October.
Speaking on Johnny's fantastic recovery, Mr. Angel gushed:
"Johnny is technically in remission, thank God. I believe he will be healed."

Angel's son Johnny was just diagnosed with leukemia, so the Vegas magician hopped on a plane back to Australia in order to be with the 2-year-old.
Angel even took to Twitter to make the announcement, saying:
