Another dancer could be filling in for Derek Hough tonight on "Dancing With the Stars," unless he has a miraculous recovery in time for the show. Maksim Chmerkovskiy stepped in late last week to work with Hough's dance partner, Joanna Krupa, because Hough was in pain.

On his Twitter page Hough says he thinks he's had the flu. On Thursday, he had a 104 degree temperature so he went to the doctor who put an IV in his arm for two hours.

On Friday, Hough said he felt better. Then, he explained that "better" means he felt dead rather than "suffering painful torture."
