Viewers of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" witnessed a surprising move Monday night - Marie Osmond fainting.
The shocking collapse came moments after her performance with dancer Jonathan Roberts. The pair just finished the samba and were getting feedback from the show's trio of judges when Osmond suddenly fainted.
The show quickly cut to commercial, and when it returned minutes later, host Tom Bergeron explained that the 48-year-old singing sister of Donny Osmond was just fine.
"The first words out of her mouth when she saw us all standing over her were, 'Oh crap," he said.
Her fainting episode aside, each of the three judges went on to award her seven points out of 10.
"Once in a while, that happens to me when I get winded," Osmond, who appeared unfazed by the incident, later explained during the show. "I stop breathing."
