Despite injuring her neck during rehearsals and being rushed to the hospital on Sunday, Dancing with the Stars contestant Melissa Rycroft returned to the ballroom to perform on Monday night.
And she danced a high-flying team freestyle routine despite having what she called a "herniated disc in my upper neck."
"I'm on a little medication right now," Rycroft said before the performance to Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe." "[But] I'm officially cleared to dance."

With 12 celebrity contestants and their professional partners still remaining on the 15th season of Dancing with the Stars All-Stars, Monday night made jive come alive – with decidedly mixed results.
Emmy-winning emcee Tom Bergeron and co-host Brooke Burke Charvet kept the suspense building until the judges rendered their scores – including the season's first 9 – while the audience audibly jeered those times that lower numbers were delivered.

When it came to William Levy and Cheryl Burke's cha cha on Monday night's Dancing with the Stars finals, head judge Len Goodman told the couple that the number was "as good as I've seen in 14 seasons." But when they performed their freestyle, he was less impressed.
Calling the booty-shaking routine, "predictable," Goodman kept the duo from getting a perfect 60 points out of 60 for the night.
But Levy and Burke wouldn't change a thing if they had to do the dance all over again.
"It [was] the freestyle," the Cuban star told PEOPLE backstage after the show. "It's free. We can do whatever we want. It wasn't supposed to be something that Len was looking for. You don't have to do whatever he says. We picked samba, who cares?"

What happens to a newly made ballroom dancer after the disco ball trophy?
Usually, the top Dancing with the Stars contestants return to obscurity – er, their glamorous lifestyles – and we never see them on the dance floor again. But now the show is looking to change that.
ABC's entertainment president Paul Lee confirmed to reporters that he "can't talk about the casting yet, but I'd love to see some of the fan favorites from the past seasons come back," EW.com reports.

The semi-finals are just a week away on Dancing with the Stars. But to get there, the six remaining couples had to perform two dances each on Monday night – and will have to survive a double elimination on Tuesday. (Spoilers ahead!)
In the first round of competition, William Levy and Cheryl Burke landed atop the leader board with a high-energy foxtrot that earned a perfect score. "You bring these performances to life," Carrie Ann Inaba told the couple. "There was care in technique and flare in the movement," added Len Goodman.
In a close second were Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower, who barely survived last week's dance duel. Their foxtrot earned 29 points and had Bruno Tonioli gushing. "The sweetest of sweethearts," he called them. "What you've done in a week is incredible."

It was another low-scoring week for Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Melissa Gilbert, who came in last place with 21 points for their tango on Dancing with the Stars Monday night.
But unlike in seasons past, a usually outspoken Chmerkovskiy says he's not upset, because he expects judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman to deliver tough critiques at this point.
"With a smile on my face and a happy, happy, happy, happy, happy heart, [I'll say] there's nothing we can do right by them, and it is what it is," the professional dancer told reporters backstage after Monday night's show. "Let's be realistic. If we make it to the [dancing duel], we're out. That's a fact, no matter what we do."

Jaleel White and partner Kym Johnson got their groove back with a crowd-pleasing cha cha on Dancing with the Stars Monday – but some other contestants struggled to keep up with the competition.
Finding themselves in the bottom two once again, Roshon Fegan and partner Chelsie Hightower lacked sex appeal with their 23-point rumba. Meanwhile, Gladys Knight and partner Tristan MacManus scored an underwhelming 21 points for their rumba.
