"DWTS'" Ballas Takes One in the Groin

"Dancing with the Stars'" Mark Ballas has groin-ed to a halt.

The season six winner "grimaced in pain" at a Staples Center concert, reports People, and apologized to the crowd for "not being able to give his all," although he was apparently able to tough it out through a "high-energy hip-hop" routine.

Ballas announced he'll have to sit out "a couple of weeks" to let his sore man-bend mend. No splits for Mark.
