After Ralph Macchio practiced for his routine for last night’s episode of Dancing With The Stars, it was shown in the promo package that he had suffered from a cyst behind his knee. This caused him great pain, yet he continued to perform his Viennese Waltz, which earned him 25 points.
For his instant dance with partner Karina Smirnoff, they performed the Cha Cha. They performed that dance for a group dance in week seven.
During his performance, it was obvious that Ralph was suffering, as he was limping over to the judges table for their scores. The instant dance earned him a score of 21 points, along with a standing ovation from the judge’s panel.
Still, he put up a good fight and even told the crowd that he still has something to offer for the show. It would be a shame to let that go over something that will heal in “one or two days”, he commented.
Do you think Ralph will be eliminated tonight? Overall, I think he showed very few signs that he was dancing with an injury. Ralph is a total pro and his personality comes through in every dance.
Who are you pulling for?
