In a season plagued by injuries, it looked like none of the contestants would make it through to the Dancing With the Stars finale. But this year's leading pair, Brooke Burke and partner Derek Hough, seem determined to not let the bandages and X-rays get to them, as they earned the first perfect 30 score of the season on Monday night’s DWTS.

But despite Brooke and Derek's Monday night magic, injuries continue to be a recurring theme this season as Maurice Greene danced through a stiff knee, Lance Bass managed to impress the judges even with nagging toe problems, and Cody Linley danced with a new partner after losing Julianne Hough to appendix surgery.

Sprinter Maurice got a strong 25 for his cha cha with partner Cheryl Burke even though “I hyperextended my knee,” he told OK!.

Cheryl revealed, “The doctor wants him to get an MRI.” To which Maurice shrugged, “I don’t know if I want to do it. With everything that went on, we came out here and performed.”

Meanwhile, Lance and partner Lacey Schwimmer sizzled in their rumba and tied Maurice and Cheryl’s 25 score. Lance and Lacey danced in their bare feet — which helped the boy bander’s aching toes! “It’s two now on my right foot. One toe is broken — the other one, I don’t know what is happening. I’m getting an MRI tomorrow,” Lance confided.
