Amy Purdy Hospitalized on Dancing With the Stars, Advances Anyway

by at . Comments

Monday evening's Dancing with the Stars results saw NeNe Leakes eliminated, having turned in the lowest score of the seven remaining competitors.

Amy Purdy, meanwhile, was hospitalized after a rumba to a slowed down rendition of "Light My Fire" by The Doors that earned 36 out of 40 points.

"You lit my fire! First out, first class," Len Goodman told her, while guest judge Ricky Martin gushed, "You were stunning. You made me feel a lot of things."

Purdy felt mostly pain. She was admitted to hospital shortly after her performance with a shoulder injury and was unable to perform the group routine.

The athlete's efforts in the dress rehearsal dance was used to judge the routine, fittingly performed to "Livin La Vida Loca," with Amy unable to participate.

The team had well wishes for Purdy, who they missed during the number, but she nailed her dress rehearsal performance, which was taken into account.

Her status is uncertain, but assuming she can go next week, she's one of six contestants remaining in this retooled 18th season of the ABC smash.

Amy, Charlie White, James Maslow, Danica McKellar, Candace Cameron Bure, and Meryl Davis are all that remains of this spring's celebrity ensemble.

Meryl has dominated the past two weeks with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, while Charlie and James ended up in the bottom three last night with NeNe.

The dancing required to please whoever, is getting too rough. When you are getting people hurt, DWTS is too demanding. Taking shirts off,skimpy outfits is not necessary on TV where young people are watching.Go back to beautiful clothes, and dance moves that are you can see because there were not so fast you can't see them. Last night I mostly saw flashes of dance moves, half naked men and women and would appreciate you let up on these dances and outfits. it is getting slutty. your female announcer voice is very irritating. Her high pitched and fast talker just adds to your changes that are not positive. Your music is not beautiful like before. What happened that you think all these changes are pleasing to those that are watching the TV.
go back to class.

I agree. The dancing is too wild, rough, and jerky. I don't enjoy it any more. I enjoy watching the actual non-professional dancer contestants progress, not the contestants who previously learned dancing through ice dancing or previously had dancing instructions to perform while singing on stage.
