Donny Osmond was almost paralyzed in 2019. During his final performance at his Las Vegas residency with his sister, Marie Osmond, he said his physical problems became worse. When the show ended, he knew he had to take control of his health and get better. He had some dancing injuries during his time in the U.S. version of Strictly Come Dancing in 2009.

Since then, his spine had shifted due to the injuries. When asked about his final Vegas performance, he said, “I couldn’t feel my arms, then suddenly my legs too. I didn’t tell anyone what was happening to me……I just kept dancing and finished the show.”

Then in 2019, he had back and neck surgery. While recovering, he got a secondary infection that left him almost paralyzed. He had to go through intense rehab and worried that he was going to be permanently paralyzed. Luckily, after about a year of rehab, he is back on his feet once again and has a new solo Las Vegas residency.
