Despite earning some of the highest scores of the season on DWTS, things have been pretty rough for Amber Riley!!
And it does NOT look like they are getting any easier!
The Glee starlet was able to squeeze some rehearsal time into her airtight schedule as she was spotted hitting up the dance studio in Hollywood with her partner Derek Hough!
But in addition to looking absolutely EXHAUSTED, we also couldn't help but notice that she was wearing braces on both of her knees!!
Amber mentioned that she was experiencing some pain in her knees before her performance earlier this week, however, she went on to post a high score of 27, so they didn't really seem to slow her down much!!
Hopefully she's able to pull it off again next week, because we can't wait to see what she and Derek do next!!
