Dancing With The Stars’ Mark Ballas Competes Despite Injury

Dancing With The Stars' Mark Ballas Competes Despite Injury

On last night’s performance episode of “Dancing With The Stars”, veteran pro dancer Mark Ballas danced despite an injury and still received a stellar score. Have you been keeping up with the show? If not, you can read a fully detailed recap here.

Mark suffered through the weekend from a back injury, causing his partner Alexandra Raisman to rehearse with Henry Byalikov. He went on to dance on Monday night’s show, scoring 32 points out of a possible 33 for his Salsa with the Olympic gymnast.

Mark took to his official website to say, “While trying a lift, I compressed two discs in my lower back and could hardly move for two days. The timing couldn’t be worse. I got my MRI results back and there is no damage to my spine or nerves, and the pain I am enduring is only muscular. The muscles are spasming and will take a few days (or weeks) to calm down.”

Mark and Aly received the highest score of the night, while Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess brought up the bottom of the leaderboard with 17 points. Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough have immunity from elimination after receiving the highest score of the night.

TELL US: Who do you think will be eliminated Tuesday evening?
