As we reported yesterday (October 21), Dancing With the Stars Season 15 All-Stars contestant Melissa Rycroft was rushed to a hospital in Los Angeles after suffering a head injury. Does this mean they won’t get to dance on tonight’s Week 5: Performance show?
E! reports that Melissa was released from the hospital on Sunday night, but the injury sounds intense, affecting not just her head but her neck as well.
Tony Dovolani and Melissa are scheduled to perform a Tango for their individual dance, and they are also on Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough’s team for the group dance, which is choreographed to the tune of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.”
Late on Sunday night, presumably after Melissa had been released, Tony tweeted, “Really concerned about @MelissaRycroft..... we don't know if we are dancing tomorrow !!!!! Please keep us in your prayers #trouper”
Let’s do what the man says, and keep our fingers and toes crossed. It wouldn’t be much of a group dance without Tony’s big grin and Melissa’s spark plug personality.
Do you think Melissa will make it to the dance floor? Will Derek and his team need to completely re-choreograph the routine to accommodate Melissa’s injury? We’ll find out soon enough!
UPDATE: A production insider tells Wetpaint Entertainment that Melissa will dance tonight. Yay!
Catch a new episode of Dancing With the Stars Season 15: All-Stars on Monday, October 22 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
