After A Scary Fall During Rehearsal, DWTS Pro Drops Out Of Finale!
In the most recent DWTS episode, professional dancer Hayley Erbert was injured after a frightening fall. Only four couples remain as this season comes to a close. There were preparations to fill the time duration with a shed load of fantastic entertainment from the returning season people on the show because there were so few contenders participating in the Season 31 Final episode of Dancing with the Stars.
Among them were Derek Hough and Hayley Erbert, who were slated to ignite dance floors with their incredible performances; regrettably, this won’t take place any longer. Erbert suffered a shoulder injury while blocking for cameras on Sunday, forcing the couple to cancel their appearance on Monday’s Season 31 finale. She informed everybody of her shoulder injury while rehearsing via her Instagram account, @derekhoughDerek.
A shoulder injury sustained by Hayley Erbert
Mainly a lift was being worked on as they honed their dance routine. Hayley lost control of the movements and fell on the ground forcefully onto her shoulder even though, as they acknowledged, they had danced 100 times before. Due to their extensive preparation and commitment, the pair explained on Instagram that getting hurt was unjustified. They immediately noticed Hayley’s shoulder was damaged as they restarted.
Derek also shared the video with some updated information, clarifying that production had ultimately decided that Hayley needed to take care of her health and therefore doesn’t dance. As a true dancer, Hayley Erbert was prepared to push through and perform. However, on occasion—indeed, at about this particular time—they thought it would be best to postpone the dance.
Erbert will have an MRI to go through the necessary healing process. They must now watch the conclusion from the audience, which is regrettable. Carrie Ann Inaba, a judge alongside Hough, left a comment beneath the article after learning of Hayley’s wound. Although she said she was heartbroken that they wouldn’t perform, she pointed out that people’s health should come first. Inaba noted that Hayley should take care of herself because shoulder injuries are not something to take lightly.
Since the couple recently decided to get married and the wedding date is drawing near, Hayley needs to take care of herself to recover more quickly. DWTS once had a troupe that included Hayley, who got her start on So You Think You Can Dance. She first met Derek there, and the two of them have returned to the show to showcase their talents ever since.
Other people have left the group besides Haley
A successful returnee to the program, Selma Blair was also one of the season’s dropouts. She participated in the season 31 finale of Dancing With The Stars after leaving the show early due to health issues resulting from her battle with multiple sclerosis. The actress with MS, also known as multiple sclerosis, has had difficulty throughout the competition.
The Cruel Intentions actress took a seat with her competent dance partner Sasha Farber in a rehearsal video that screened before her heartbreaking live performance. Fans and other competitors were shocked to learn Selma Blair was leaving the competition DWTS. Blair revealed that her medical professionals had determined that she needed to take a break from the reality show for her well-being throughout a DWTS episode in October.
One of the main factors contributing to mid-season dropouts is injuries sustained during practices. Some of the injuries sustained may have long-term consequences. Fortunately, no such accidents have occurred to date because most famous people have fully recovered, regardless of how severe their injuries were.
Many celebrities, including Ray Lewis, Britt Stewart, and others, have admitted to getting hurt during rehearsals. More recently, Daniel Durant’s partner Britt Stewart disclosed that she broke herself while practicing a song for a Michael Buble night. It was clarified that, despite her injury, she wouldn’t be eliminated from the competition.
