She explained International Tango was not easy, especially when dancers had to follow the rules and not break the ballroom hold. She further pointed out that one of the singer's wigs flew off his head at the top of the dance, and he did not notice until much later. 

Burke expressed that she was impressed at how he handled the situation with pure professionalism and "give him a 10." She then moved to give updates on the injuries she sustained during rehearsal.

She explained that her adrenalin got her through the dance, and she only started feeling the repercussions of her fall when she woke up the next morning. She added that though she was pretty sore, there was no sitting on the sidelines for her.

With enthusiasm, the dancer gushed that she would push through and deliver a beautiful dance with McLean. She then implored her fans to keep up their support, especially since next week's round was going to involve a double elimination.

During Monday's show, McLean opened up about the circumstances around Burke's fall. He explained that both of them were practicing during stage rehearsal, and it happened so fast because the next he knew, he heard her head hit the floor. 

After she was evaluated, the medic advised her to take the rest of the Sunday off. Fortunately, she was approved to dance on Monday, and the pair tangoed to "Psycho" by The Intermezzo Orchestra.

Burke and McLean seem to be the perfect dance partners not because of their existing friendship but because the pair have successfully delivered captivating dance moves during the show.
