Jana Kramer Writes Of Her Final Dances On Dancing With The Stars

Jana Kramer has written her last blog for Dancing With The Stars at People. She’s feeling a little weird as she goes into the Finals tonight and feels everyone is a winner. She also gives us hints for what’s to come. It sounds like Gleb is dancing even though he is still not feeling the best. More below and at the link.

It’s weird to realize that no one is really going home anymore. It’s just the end. This sounds so cheesy, but I feel like making it to the finals, we’ve all won. The only thing that separates us is one person will get the Mirrorball Trophy.

That said, we want that trophy and we’ve been working hard for it. Between rehearsals and interviews and everything, it’s been a crazy week and Gleb is feeling the pressure. I’ve never seen him this stressed before. He’s having to choreograph two very difficult routines and a lot is on his shoulders.

On top of all that, he’s really sick with the flu. He’s literally falling apart right now and had to reschedule rehearsals this weekend so he could rest a little more. He’s struggling.

Usually I’ll get wrapped up in the anxiety and stress of the people around me, but because I’ve worked with Gleb for so many weeks I have been staying really grounded and trying to relieve some of his stress. I don’t want this last week to be stressful. I want to enjoy it and really make the most of our last week dancing together. And to be honest, we trade off. Last week, I was so nervous and he calmed me down. Now it’s my turn to support him.

Our freestyle dance is going to be the most different because the other routines are going to be big productions with props and everything but ours won’t be like that. At first, I was a little bummed that we weren’t having all those bells and whistles but Gleb and I started this experience together and we’re going to end it together – just the two of us.

My redemption dance is the tango, and I’m really happy the judges chose that one for me. I was in extreme pain when we performed our first tango week 2, and I am so happy that they picked the dance because I love the tango and I always felt I could do it better than I did. The routine is a lot harder than the tango we did in week 2, and I feel really good about it. It feels great to see how much I’ve grown.

I’m also singing “Circles” on the finale Tuesday. “Circles” really is about piecing together a lot of broken parts and DWTS has been a large part of my ability to piece myself together, so I feel like everything is coming, well, full circle.

Gleb Savchenko Sick With The Flu, Hopes To Still Dance For The DWTS Finals

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.

One of us has the flu…well maybe two of us. @glebsavchenkoofficial. Excuse me while I go vitamin C overdose

James Hinchcliffe Talks Of Competing Against Calvin Johnson And More Interviews

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.
