Dancing with the Stars vet Mark Ballas sustained a serious injury Sunday during camera blocking for part one of season 18’s Monday night finale. He dislocated his shoulder while hoisting up celebrity dance partner Candace Cameron during what would be an integral move in the couple’s freestyle performance.

Fellow pro dancers Derek Hough and Cheryl Burke reportedly rushed to Mark’s side before he was placed in an ambulance and taken to the hospital for treatment, reports People.

It’s still unclear as to whether or not Mark will be well enough to perform this evening, but in the event he cannot, another pro from the show will take his place to dance with Candace.

Mark and Candace have been this season’s comeback kids, narrowly escaping elimination several time after being at the bottom of the leader board. The pair wowed the judges and viewers last week with a jazz routine to Janet Jackson’s “Nasty.”

If Mark can’t dance, which pro should take his place to dance with Candace tonight? Tell us in the comments or tweet @OKMagazine.
