Julianne Hough attended the 3rd Annual “Airbnb Open Spotlight” last night. Here she is on the Red carpet and lovely as always.
According to People and a multitude of other sources, Dancing With The Stars Gleb Savchenko has the flu and needs to rest. Let’s wish him the best and that he can dance on Monday. From everyone at PureDWTS, GET WELL SOON, Gleb!!!
“He has the flu and has to rest up this weekend so he can hopefully dance on Monday,” a source tells PEOPLE of the Dancing with the Stars pro.
Savchenko and his season 23 partner Jana Kramer are just two nights away from possibly winning the Mirrorball Trophy but the pro is having to reschedule rehearsals this weekend so he can rest, says the source.
Kramer and Savchenko are slated to face-off against Laurie Hernandez and Val Chmerkovskiy, Calvin Johnson and Lindsay Arnold and James Hinchcliffe and Sharna Burgess for two dances on Monday night. And if they are not eliminated Monday, they will have just 24 hours to learn a new dance for the season finale on Tuesday.
“Getting to the final week makes me already feel like a winner,” Kramer — who posted an Instagram Saturday of Savchenko wearing a mask in rehearsal — told reporters after last Monday’s live show. “But don’t get me wrong, I still want that Mirrorball!”
The source says Savchenko can’t imagine not performing Monday, but it will have to be a game-day decision. The pro dancer almost had to sit out of a live performance earlier in November after suffering a knee injury.
If you tune in, let us know your thoughts and rank the couples in comments if interested. If you can’t watch it LIVE, let’s hope they will post videos at their Official You Tube page. More later and have fun!! We look forward to reading your comments as always.

How does James Hinchcliffe feel about competing against former Detroit Lion Calvin Johnson in the finals of Dancing With The Stars? Find out below. From Detroit News…..
“He definitely surprised a lot of people coming out of the gate who weren’t sure a guy that size was going to be able to move,” Hinchcliffe says of his 6-foot, 5-inch competitor. “But man, he can move. There’s a reason he’s fast on the field.”
Hinchcliffe and Johnson are among the four celebrity dancers vying for the Mirror Ball Trophy in the finals of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” this week. In an exclusive interview with The Detroit News, Hinchcliffe shared how he and Johnson have bonded over the last 10 weeks and formed what many see as an adorable “bromance.”
“He’s a great guy to be around and always has a smile on his face, so it’s been a lot of fun, not only watching him dancing, but getting to know him, as well,” Hinchcliffe says in a phone call from Los Angeles.
The four-time IndyCar winner adds that he and Johnson tackle dance routines like their sports.
“In his case, he’s used to learning plays, and in my case, learning laps, and we’re used to repetition and long hours and putting in hard work,” he says, “and I think we went about learning dances in a very similar way.”
Their like-mindedness proved beneficial when they teamed up for a paso doble dance — calling themselves Last Men Standing — with their professional partners. The Western-themed routine earned a 37 out of 40 from the judges.
“Honestly, that’s the reason why you guys are the last men standing. … You guys both came out and rocked it,” judge Julianne Hough said in her comments afterward.
Hinchcliffe says he and 31-year-old Johnson “spoke the same language,” so they could easily lean on each other for certain steps.
As far as making it to the finals with his pro partner Sharna Burgess, Hinchcliffe says it’s “quite a surprise, but a pleasant one.”
“I came into this competition with — I wouldn’t even say low expectations — I’d say no expectations because I had no dancing experience, no dancing ability to my knowledge, so I didn’t know what to expect,” he says.

If you go to Entertainment Tonight, the finalists of Dancing With The Stars Season 23 share stories from their stressful week of rehearsals and what they’ll miss the most about dancing. Here’s a part with Gleb and Jana. Gleb says their freestyle will be as exciting as their Shower dance.
“It’s been a very stressful week for [Gleb Savchenko],” country singer Jana Kramer explains. “Like, obviously I’m stressed, too, but he has to choreograph two dances. It’s the finals. He’s got to step it up in the choreography, so I think he’s stressed.”
“I was a little bit stressed, but today’s better,” Gleb adds. “We’ve got everything almost ready.”
Unfortunately, the two won’t be reprising their iconic shower dance as many fans expected. “I wish we were,” Jana confirms. “They won’t let us.” Instead, they’ll be reprising their sexy Viennese waltz from week one and a new freestyle that the two tease is sure to wow the crowd.
“This dance is going to be as exciting as the shower dance,” Gleb promises. “We got a great concept, a great song. The difference is the choreography and everything else is completely new. So, it’s going to be cool. A cool dance. I love it.”
