This is my first post in a series in which I each week will choose my favorite photo among all the thousands photos that has been live published via Shootitlive in the previous week. But with to many awesome photos, this first post will feature two winners instead of one.

Alexander Rybak became sick and had to run for the toilet during the live broadcast of the Swedish version of Dancing With The Stars. His dance partner Malin Johansson was left alone to be interviewed by the host David Hellenius.


During a live broadcast you can never be sure what might happen and this photo really proofs that.
