If one broken mirror means seven years of bad luck, "Dancing With the Stars" champs Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas could be facing centuries of misfortune.

When the dancing partners opened their respective mirrorball trophies after a cross-country trip, each was broken.

Ballas says the trophies broke during a flight from New York.

ABC says the mirrorballs are being repaired. Johnson, 17, and Ballas were crowned winners of the hit show's eighth season last month.
