Marie Osmond fainted on-stage during ABC's live broadcast of "Dancing with the Stars" Monday October 22nd, but quickly recovered and apologized.
The actress and her dancing partner, dancer Jonathan Roberts, were the first performers of the evening. They had just finished a samba and were listening to comments from the show's judges when Osmond suddenly fell onto the floor, much to everyone's shock.
And while the judges had nothing to say, but stared in shock, host Tom Bergeron quickly sent the show to commercial, during which two medics and Osmond's manager rushed to her side. The ballroom was silent for more than a minute before then gave Osmond applause as soon as she could stand on her own feet.
The show then resumed and host Tom Bergeron told the studio audience and TV viewers that Osmond had fainted but was fine. Osmond herself explained her collapse, saying "once in a while that happens to me when I get winded. I stop breathing."
Was well enough to take part in the next segment, Osmond is expected to undergo a medical examination just to make sure she's okay, an ABC spokeswoman said.
