Show Must Go On Despite Last-Minute Injuries on 'America's Got Talent'
By Paige Feigenbaum
Is there a doctor in the house? With the stakes higher than ever on "America's Got Talent," dancers literally gave their blood, sweat, and tears to stay in the competition. Mere moments before taking the stage, two acts suffered injuries that jeopardized their future.
Did the last-minute mishaps potentially cost these performers the title? The showbiz hopefuls proved the phrase "the show must go on" to be true.
A toppling pyramid sent one bloody Fatally Unique dancer to the hospital in an ambulance. As the clock struck time for the act to take the stage, she put her game face on for a performance that earned the group a trip to compete in Hollywood.
A sprained ankle couldn’t keep one showgirl from the Vegas stage. Lucia from LD Dance shook her tail-feather, ignoring the pain. However, her courageous performance didn't win over the judges and she was sent hobbling home on crutches.
"America's Got Talent" airs Tuesday and Wednesday nights on NBC.
