See Jana Kramer’s Final Two ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Routines
After fighting the flu over the weekend, Jana Kramer and dance partner Gleb Savchenko were eliminated from competition during the first night of the Dancing With the Stars finale on Monday night (Nov. 21). Still, fans got to see them perform two final dances before they went.
Kramer and Savchenko first danced a tango to "Stay the Night" by Zedd, featuring Hayley Williams. The judges selected the tango for Kramer and Savchenko to see how the pair improved from their tango in Week 2, and in their comments post-dance, they stressed how far Kramer had come; Carrie-Ann Inaba specifically noted that Kramer matched Savchenko's level of intensity this time around.
"I still think you're hotter than hell!" Bruno Tonioli told Kramer and Savchenko after their performance. "When these two dance, you can give night sweats to a saint ... and what you've achieved is incredible."
Kramer and Savchenko earned 35 points (out of a possible 40) for their tango. Readers can press play on the video above to watch it.
Kramer and Savchenko's freestyle dance, which came later in the evening, earned 36 points (out of a possible 40), but despite the one-point-higher score, it was a bit more emotionally charged and not quite as perfect as the pair would have liked. Following the routine, both Kramer and Savchenko looked disappointed due to a stumble, though the judges and hosts stressed how impressed they were nonetheless. Press play on the video below to see Kramer and Savchenko's freestyle routine.
Kramer, who placed fourth this season, followed in the footsteps of fellow country stars Wynonna Judd, Kellie Pickler, Chuck Wicks, Sara Evans and Billy Ray Cyrus, all of whom have previously competed on Dancing With the Stars. In her music career, Kramer’s current single is the song “Circles;” the tune appears on her newest album, Thirty One, and is the follow-up single to her hit “I Got the Boy.”
Personally, the past few months have been rough for Kramer: She and husband Michael Caussin separated in late August, and Kramer recently revealed that he cheated on her. Kramer also recently opened up about the abusive relationship she had with her first husband, Michael Gambino, who nearly killed her.
