The doe-eyed singer told the radio show that he might perform -- sitting down -- at a concert in Manchester slated for Tuesday.

"Tonight, I have a show in Manchester so we are just going to play it by ear," he said. "Hopefully, um, I won't be able to have too much of an energized show but it's going to be fun."

He explained the injury in further detail on his Twitter page.

"In the last song One Time, I tripped over something on stage coming down the ramp and felt my ankle roll in a very bad way," he Tweeted. "Taylor Swift came backstage to see me before I went to the hospital because she is awesome!"
