Report: Hines Ward wows DWTS judges

BY foxsports • May 16, 2011

"Dancing With The Stars" pro dancer Kym Johnson shrugged off a horror fall in rehearsals, which saw her taken to a Los Angeles hospital Friday, and wowed the hit TV show's judges with two flawless routines Monday.

The Australian dancer and her partner, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward, drew rapturous applause after performing a sensual tango on Week 9 of the ABC show, People reported.

"It was like good sex. You never want it to end," judge Bruno Tonioli said of the routine, which received a trio of perfect 10s from the judges.

The pair also received perfect scores for their second routine of the night.

Johnson, 34, appeared fully recovered from Friday's fall. Footage of the incident was aired which showed Ward dropped Johnson on her neck during a routine and then fell on her.

"I can't feel my arms," Johnson cried as she lay in a ball on the floor before being taken for treatment.

Speaking backstage Monday night, the Steelers legend praised his dance partner's recovery saying, "Praise to God she's still walking. She's a warrior. I love her."

The couples who will dance next week in the season 12 finals will be revealed on Tuesday night's results show.
