“The thing is, I pass out a lot,” the actress said in the interview. “It’s part of the reason I have Scout and it doesn’t mean I lose consciousness [or] it’s a whole ambulance experience, it’s something that I lose my vision, gravity pulls me down and I’m very disoriented and gone for a spell. He’s kind of there to also catch me, you know, make the ground a little closer with his back.”

So far, Selma hasn’t had any fainting spells in the middle of her live performances. In fact, she and Sasha managed to impress the judges and audience members for two weeks in a row. Viewers are really excited to see what they pull off for week three.
