Video: Maksim Almost Drops Kirstie After Injury

Something unusual happened on Dancing with the Stars last night. Instead of the contestant having a slip-up, it was the pro dancer.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy dropped Kirstie Alley just seconds into their performance on Monday after pulling something in his leg.

According to Maksim, his "thigh just gave out." To be fair he was carrying a big load. I know, I know. Low blow. But it's the truth.

They got off to a shaky start, but they both picked up right where they left off and did a pretty amazing job. Kirstie's footwork was dead on and they impressed the judges enough to get all 7's--not too shabby!
