Kirstie Alley took a nasty spill on Dancing With the Stars last night, but was able to recover and get on with the dance!
It happened just seconds into the routine when her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s let apparently gave out sending him to the ground and taking her with him, but the pair got right back up and after some brief grimacing in pain, Maksim was able to continue on.
Their efforts, along with their nearly flawless finish earned Kirstie and Maks a 21 out of 30 in the end.
After the routine, Chmerkovskiy explained,
“My thigh just gave out. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry, It has nothing to do with her.”
The judges loved the fact that they got back up and kept on going, with Judge Bruno Tonioli saying; “You can’t keep good talent down. Once you got up it was better than ever.”
This week on Dancing With the Stars the contestants chose their own songs that have a personal meaning to them. Alley chose ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ and explained it was the story of her move to Los Angeles to become an actress.
