Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff may have given an amazing performance when they danced on Dancing With the Stars All-Stars Season 15, Week 2: Performance, but apparently that near-perfect dance was the result of a shaky (or rather headache-y?) dress rehearsal.

After completing their rousing Quickstep, Apolo admitted that he was worried because their dress rehearsal didn’t go so well. After the couple earned a 23.5 out of 30 from the judges, host Tom Bergeron revealed that Apolo had accidentally head-butted Karina during the rehearsal. Ouch!

Whatever the messiness of their dress rehearsal, this couple pulled off an amazing dance! Kudos to Karina for managing to execute a tough Quickstep after getting smacked in the head by an Olympian.

Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays and Tuesdays on ABC.
