Alfonso Ribeiro — the front-runner on “Dancing with the Stars” — may have to pull out of the competition days before the semifinals … and it's all because of The Carlton Dance.
Our DWTS sources say Ribeiro injured his back during rehearsal Wednesday night as he tried to overcompensate for a groin injury which he suffered on the show, performing his signature move.
The back injury is bad — he's having trouble even walking. Alfonso skipped rehearsals Thursday so he could get an MRI.
Doctors are telling him the next 48 hours are critical, but they say there's a real chance he can't dance.
