Fifth Harmony singer and “Dancing with the Stars” frontrunner Normani Kordei twisted and injured her ankle while rehearsing for the finale of the reality competition series. Watch the video below.

In footage obtained by TMZ, Kordei can be seen trying to do a split in the air with the help of her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, but she twists her right foot on the landing. The singer then takes a break from rehearsing to ice her ankle, but it appears her injury wasn’t too serious and she’ll still compete on the show’s finale next week.

As Gossip Cop reported, Kordei and Chmerkovskiy’s jive routine earned them a perfect score during the semifinals earlier this week. Kordei also received a perfect score for her contemporary dance on last week’s episode. The pair will now compete for the coveted Mirrorball Trophy alongside fellow finalists Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater, and David Ross and Lindsay Arnold. The Fifth Harmony star, however, is currently in first place.

Of course, it’s not uncommon for “Dancing with the Stars” contestants to sustain injuries while practicing for the show. As Gossip Cop noted, pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy suffered a calf injury while rehearsing earlier this season and had to miss several weeks of the competition. It remains to be seen how Kordei’s ankle injury will impact her performance. The Season 24 finale of “Dancing with the Stars” airs Monday, May 22. As always, Gossip Cop will have full coverage of the show. Watch the singer’s mishap in the video below.
