Amy Purdy Returns to Dancing with the Stars, Earns Perfect Score After Hospitalization

by at . Comments

Amy Purdy made an unbelievable comeback on Monday’s Dancing with the Stars, notching a perfect score after leaving with a back injury last week.

The paralympian was rushed to the hospital during last week’s Dancing with the Stars results show, and was later diagnosed with a “rib out of place.”

Amy Purdy was cleared to dance the next week, though, and while expectations for last night's return were uncertain, her Argentine tango was amazing:

Even judge Abby Lee Miller of Dance Moms infamy called Derek Hough’s choreography “brilliant,” and told Purdy, “Amy, my students are here this evening."

"And I better never ever, ever hear ‘I’m too tired.”

“Look at this woman!” she declared. “Amazing.”

Bruno Tonioli similarly called Purdy “Amazing Amy,” and said the performance was “perfection ... totally spell-binding. I feel like I’m in a trance."

Carrie Ann Inaba added, “I swear I felt like I stopped breathing three times," while Len Goodman said, “If I’m dreaming, don’t wake me up. That was terrific.”

Danica McKellar was eliminated last night, while Purdy, James Maslow, Charlie White, Candace Cameron Bure and Meryl Davis advanced to the semifinals.
