Wounded vet drops jaws during ‘Dancing With the Stars’ performance (VIDEO)

With Toby Keith’s “American Soldier” playing in the background, the tears were flowing and a standing ovation was no doubt in order on Monday night’s episode of “Dancing With the Stars.”

Noah Galloway, who lost an arm and a leg during an IED attack while serving in the Iraqi war, paired up with Sharna Burgess to deliver an unforgettable performance.

“There was something that was free and something that was so beautiful, and we all felt it here tonight,” said Dancing With the Stars judge Julianne Hough, trying – unsuccessfully – to hold her tears back. “And there was something that we would also like to say thank you for — because when you stand in front of that mirror, we all have things that we look at and don’t like about ourselves. But for you to have have something physical and you come out here and do what you do and astonish us every single week.”
