Nothing much was expected ahead of Monday's first round of performances on "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars." There won't be any eliminations this week due, in part, to Monday's truncated format.
Four of the eight remaining teams performed individual dances last night, with the others participating in a group freestyle. That included injured "DWTS" contestant Melissa Rycroft, who suffered "a herniated disc" in her upper neck after Sunday's rehearsals, People magazine reports.
Rycroft joined in on the group freestyle - performed to Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" - "a little medicated ... [but] officially cleared to dance."
And while a "no elimination" week would typically cause some fans to tune out, leave it to Carrie Ann Inaba to keep things entertaining.
The "DWTS" judge, known for her occasionally wacky comments on the panel, took a tumble while reviewing Gilles Marini's rumba. Watch the video above to see what happened to Carrie Ann, who did recover and move on with the show.
