Jenkins appeared to get hurt while doing a back bend during Monday's samba routine, her second of the night. When asked about the incident, Jenkins said, "I don't know, I felt my back go as I bent back."

Earlier, Judge Carrie Ann Inaba said Jenkins' performance "might have been the best dance I've ever seen on 'Dancing with the Stars.'"

"Dancing With the Stars" airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. on ABC.
