Amy Purdy does not let any disabilities get in her way. That is why she is a regular on the show “Dancing with the Stars”. She often appears with heavyweight partner Derek Hough and the two tend to rock on the dance floor.
A recent theme of DWTS was the Latin Night. And even Ricky Martin showed some of his wicked moves at the center of the stage. Amy Purdy and her partner began in an explosive way and soon won hearts and minds among both the judges and audience.
The song to which they performed was “Light my Fire” by The Doors. The commentary from the judges’ panel was constantly positive and encouraging.
"You lit my fire! ... First out, first class," head judge Len Goodman told the pair, "You were stunning. You made me feel a lot of things."
Yet a slight hitch appeared at the end of the day. She had to be rushed to the hospital after incurring a shoulder injury. This had quite a dampening effect on the soul and spirit of the participants of the show. They want Amy to get well soon.
Amy was not able to complete her group dance routine due to the shoulder injury she had been stricken with. She tweeted sorry for not performing on DWTS.
She also thanked all of her fans and friends for their love and support.
Thank you all for the support & well wishes, what a night! I'll update you tomorrow, time for me to get some rest #PurdyHough— Amy Purdy (@AmyPurdyGurl) April 29, 2014
Meanwhile, some other couples lit up the floor with their dance ensembles. Danica McKellar, who had a broken rib, was there with partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy. There salsa skit took everyone by surprise.
As for Candace Cameron Bure, her tango was a wild affair that took all the courage in the world to display before the crowd. Points got awarded to all the couples on rather subtle differences in performance. And by the end of it all, enough entertainment had been covered to light up a whole football stadium filled with rabid fans.
Everyone on the show is remembering Amy in his or her prayers. All those concerned want her to recover completely from her affliction as soon as possible. She can then return with a vengeance to DWTS.
