Earlier in the day, ABC released a statement cautioning whether or not the former “Bachelor” contestant could perform would be a “show time decision.”
But she and partner Tony Dovolani were right there alongside fellow All-Stars Apolo Anton Ohno, Shawn Johnson and Sabrina Bryan for an energetic pep rally-themed performance set to Carly Rae Jepsen’s summer smash “Call Me Maybe.”
Rycroft confessed she was “on a little medication” but her doctors gave her the OK to go on. The judges loved it: Carrie Ann Inaba scored it 9.5 and both Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli gave it 10 out of 10.
If all goes well, Rycroft will be back on Tuesday night for her official routine with Dovolani.
