Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s Legs Give Out On DWTS
The Dancing With The Stars curse continues. During last nights performance, professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s legs gave out while dancing with Kirstie Alley, causing him to fall to the floor while dancing to the song Over the Rainbow.
After completing the dance Maks told the judges:
“My thigh just gave out,” while adding, “I’m so sorry.”
Even with the fall and Maks being in obvious pain the pair finished their routine and scared 21/30 points. Maks said behind stage that his fall and dropping of Kirstie was caused because of a muscle spasm.
“My thighs just gave up. Any dancer would know. It happens. Muscle strain and all that, but it’s nothing to do with her. I apologize,” he told DWTS host Brooke Burns.
Maks appeared this morning on Good Morning America where he said of the incident:
“What makes me most uncomfortable, I want to be the backbone, but I want to be in the shadows. This talked-about moment takes away from Hines (Ward) and Petra (Nemcova) doing their incredible performances. Even from Kirstie.That’s why I feel a little awkward.”
