Maksim Chmerkovskiy Injury with Kirstie Alley on DWTS 2011 (WATCH)!

Filed under : Celebrity News

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley practiced all week for their dance tonight but nothing could prepare them for what was about to happen on the dance floor.

As Maks and Kirstie began their dance, their routine called for a move where Kirstie is draped over Maksim’s leg. Unfortunately for the talented couple, Maksim’s leg gave out mid-move and both he and his celebrity partner ended up falling onto the floor.

For a moment, it looked as though Maksim was about to stop the dance. He put his finger up as though he was calling for a paramedic but he ended up finishing the dance in true Maksim style.

Afterwards, he apologized to the judges and took responsibility for the mishap but the judges had nothing but praise for Chmerkovskiy and his dedication to finishing the dance.

As Brooke pointed out, it’s everyone’s worst fear to take a tumble on the dance floor but should Kirstie pay for Maks’ mistakes? After all, the DWTS duo walked away tonight with only 21 points, when they usually top the leaderboard (although their biggest competition – Karina and Ralph also only received 21 points tonight). Hines Ward and Petra Nemcova both topped the leaderboard tonight.

What do you think of Maksim’s injury? Do you think he’ll return to dance next week?

I’ll upload the video of the injury as soon as it becomes available!

    From what I saw, I think Maks is done. Having played through an injury immediately after it happened is possible, but once the injury sets in, recovery is longer. I wish Maks a quick recovery, and I feel for him, as he is a hard worker and he loves to keep the judges honest.
