Dancing to a Jessie J song knowing that she would be a guest judge definitely put the pressure on last week!

I'm a huge fan and I wanted to make sure that we did that song justice. I think she was a little shocked seeing the song she wrote for her mom being taken in a racy way, but she seemed to really enjoy the dance.

Last week was definitely an emotional one. Val is amazing because the second the package started playing, I started to get emotional because we don't see our video packages before the show. I knew what I said and I knew what was filmed, but seeing it and hearing it was another thing.

When I found out I was going to be on the show, my reaction came at me in two waves. The first wave was extreme excitement, and the second was extreme nervousness, just because I've never done anything like this before.

Everyone watches you go through your journey, whether it's up or down, and they see you at every stage of the rehearsals. Doing a reality show kind of makes you feel like you're naked, but I'm also open to that challenge, because I think that's why people watch the show. It's been a really, really fun roller-coaster ride for me so far.

Dancing with the Stars: NeNe Leakes Gets Booted, Amy Purdy Is Injured

Originally posted 04/28/2014 10:40PM

Latin was the theme of Monday night's Dancing with the Stars, and even guest judge Ricky Martin brought the heat.

Amy Purdy and Derek Hough were declared safe right away and kicked off the night with a 36-out-of-40-point rumba to a slowed-down rendition of "Light My Fire" by the Doors.

"You lit my fire! ... First out, first class," head judge Len Goodman told the pair, while Martin gushed, "You were stunning. You made me feel a lot of things."

But the night wasn't entirely a win for Purdy, who was sent to the hospital shortly after her performance with a shoulder injury. She was unable to perform the group dance with her team at the end of the evening, and the dress rehearsal dance was used to judge the routine (more on that later).
