In the days leading up to the Dancing With the Stars finale, country star Jana Kramer and her dancing partner Gleb Savchenko had a major obstacle to overcome. Sickness.
On Saturday (November 19), Kramer posted on Instagram that the duo was fighting the flu. In the photo, Savchenko was wearing a surgical mask.
Later that day, Kramer shared another photo. This time, she was the one with the mask and she was rehearsing with another pro dancer, Alan Bersten. Bersten was also the one who recently filled in for Savchenko following a knee injury.
“Im being quarantined with @alanbersten,” Kramer explained. “Please feel better @glebsavchenkoofficial #flu”
It’s been a rough season for Kramer and Savchenko who have each had their share of injuries. Early in the season, Kramer sprained the muscles in her rib cage. The singer danced despite the pain and has since earned herself a coveted spot in the ‘Dancing With the Stars’ finals.
Kramer and Savchenko will be competing for the Mirrorball trophy against Indy Car driver James Hinchcliffe and his pro partner Sharna Burgess, former NFL wide receiver Calvin Johnson and partner Lindsay Arnold, and Olympic gold medalist Laurie Hernandez and her pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy.
The Season 23 finale begins Monday (November 21) at 8 p.m. EST on ABC. Help Jana Kramer bring home the Mirrorball trophy by voting for her online following her performance.
