While most of the couples on Dancing with the Stars put energy into nailing their Monday night routine, Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani were focused on something much more serious – the reality star’s well-being.

“It’s been an emotional couple of days,” Rycroft, 29, told reporters after successfully completing the group dance to Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” that gave her a herniated disk neck injury during rehearsal.

Dovolani initially feared the worst.
