Dancing With The Stars – Will Injury Stop A Contestant Competing?

The Herald Sun (paywall) is saying that one of the contestants on the set of Dancing With The Stars is too injured to perform tomorrow night.

The article states:

DRAMA has struck Dancing with the Stars, with one of the celebrity twirlers understood to have been carted off for emergency surgery after sustaining a nasty dance-related injury, and may not be able to take part in tomorrow night’s show.

While Channel 7 yesterday was reticent to shed any light on the identity of the fallen fleet-footed star, it is known several of the cast were struggling with agonising back ailments after last Sunday’s show.

The two names being hinted at were Shannon Noll who apparently badly ripped muscles in his back last week, and KAK’s partner Carmello Pizzino.

Dancing With The Stars is on Channel Seven Sunday at 6.30pm.

Brendan Fevola was nursing a football related leg injury last week and looked very uncomfortable.

At the same time as not wanting to see anyone hurt, I’d have to say I’m in favour of just about anything to get Shannon bloody Noll off DWTS. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more uncoordinated, awkward dancer in my life – and it’s really strange for a musician/singer to have so little sense of movement to music. He’s a shocker but because he has a fan base voting for him, he stays in the game!

Maybe he is faking his own injury so he can get himself off the show!

Maybe RR but he also strikes me as being a bit of a dullard so I’m not sure he could work out a decent scam or carry it off.

yay- a blog on DWTS… some of the show may be cringeworthy, but I don’t mind watching it …lol. I just ff thru the crap and the drawn out stuff…. at least it has more content for it’s length than the block!!! 😉

I love hearing Todd’s comments- whether I agree with him or not, he is quite witty. and Helen’s outfits are seriously wacko, lol…

Not sure about Mel B, she is nto a patch on Sonia. I agree that Kerri-Anne would be an excellent co-host, after she has finished killing Carmelo… 😉

I was thinking Fevola for injury- but the article says dance-related, so am now clueless (a more common affliction these days!)

Sue N the Sunday just about confirms it is Shannon Noll also hints he does not get on with his dance partner. considering how her choreography has been criticised early in the show I suspect she won’t be asked back

I’ve just read the article RR and it must be him. Looks like there’s a few issues – I’m betting he’s watched the footage of his performances.

7 sue N { 05.13.12 at 8:55 am }

thanx RR- I think her communication skills are also an issue, regardless of any “pc” comments to the contrary…;-) Shannon is totally unco tho, so if it is him- no great loss!

I’m not a keen Shannon Noll fan either but come on… to say he is the worst dancer is ridiculous, I mean look at Brian Mannix and Jessica Watson. I’m sure they all knew before they got up there on tv in front of millions that they couldn’t dance but you know what… they are having a go so good on them & hopefully, whoever is hurt its not too bad and they make a speedy recovery.

9 Georgie { 05.13.12 at 10:03 am }

Cordelia D – my criticism of Shannon is based on the fact he makes a living from music and it’s unusual for that not to translate into his dancing. It’s like his body is not connected to that place where the music comes from – where you get lost in the music. Jessica Watson is pretty bad yes, but her life is sailing not music. Brian Mannix is getting by because he’s entertaining and has a good sense of rhythm and timing. Of course all this is just my opinion.

10 joan { 05.13.12 at 11:44 am }

I heard its Shannon and he is off the show.

11 littlepetal { 05.13.12 at 5:08 pm }

Yes, the paper did say it is Shannon Noll. His dancing partner is to be blamed. She is dancing like she is the star of the show.

I know how hard it can get Noll$y but ‘chu gotta lift,you gotta lift.

This isn’t like doing burnouts in a ute( over the limit).

He famously said onstage he had a party in his pants….I guess it’s over.
