Mark Ballas Suffers Injury On DWTSBy: Lindsay McCane - May 19, 2014
And another one bites the dust!
With the season 18 finale of Dancing with the Stars quickly approaching, one of the last four duos may not be able to compete. Former Full House star Candace Cameron Bure and her dance partner Mark Ballas may be out of the finale, after Ballas suffered a serious injury during camera blocking.
The duo’s routine required a complicated lift, and as he lifted Bure, Ballas popped his shoulder out of place, and fell to the ground in excruciating pain.
“Mark was seriously injured during camera blocking,” a spokesperson for Dancing with the Stars said. “His shoulder popped out during a lift and he was taken by ambulance to the hospital where he was treated and released. It’s unclear whether or not he’ll be able to perform on Monday’s show.”
An ambulance was immediately called, and Ballas was taken to a local hospital for treatment. He was later released, and encouraged to sit out of the finale; however, he is adamant about performing. If Ballas is unable to compete, another professional dancer will take the stage with Bure so that she can have her chance in the finale.
The other final contestants include: Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd, and Amy Purdy and Derek Hough. The final performances will take place on Monday, May 19 at 8 p.m. on ABC, and then the results will be announced on Tuesday, May 20 at 9 p.m.
