Forty years after twirling with Andy Williams, Marie Osmond took center stage in the fifth season of Dancing with the Stars—this time doing a sexy tango. After an October 2007 performance, more than 20 million people watched Marie faint on live television. In typical fashion, Marie bounced back up with her trademark smile.

Marie says her fainting was related to the fierce wildfires in California. "Well, I had allergies and I wasn't doing my breathing thing because I wasn't singing, right? But the air quality because of the fires ... our dressings rooms were outside, our hair, our makeup, and I got out there and I couldn't breathe," she says. "I woke on the floor and I saw my kids around me because my older ones were there, and I saw Jonathan, my partner who I dance with, and then I saw [Dancing with the Stars host] Tom Bergeron and I went, 'Oh, crap. What happened?'"
