Not so magical. Paris Jackson nearly breaks down during an intense segment with Criss Angel on the illusionist’s new A&E special, as seen in a sneak peek.

Criss Angel Trick’d Up’s preview clip shows Jackson, 18, clasping hands with Angel, 48, as they stare into each other’s eyes. Angel first met Paris years ago when her father, the late Michael Jackson, took her to one of the magician’s performances.

“Paris, look deep into my eyes — you’re going to feel a surge of energy,” the Mindfreak alum tells her in the scene. “What do you see?”

Angel breathes in deeply, and Paris suddenly gasps and appears terrified as she tries to back away from him


“What do you see?” Angel asks again. Paris replies somberly, “Death.”
