Jana Kramer Gets a Temporary New ‘DWTS’ Partner After Gleb Savchenko Is Injured
Season 23 of Dancing With the Stars has claimed another pro!
Just days after James Hinchcliffe’s partner, Sharna Burgess, was forced to pull out of the competition due to an injured knee, Jana Kramer’s partner, Gleb Savchenko, has also been sidelined by an unfortunate injury.
Kramer took to Snapchat on Thursday to share a photo of her dance partner laying on a doctor’s examination table, writing, “Gleb is hurt.”
Since the 33-year-old Russian dancer isn’t able to rehearse, fellow DWTS troupe member Alan Bersten is filling in for the time being.
Kramer shared a photo of Bersten from Thursday’s rehearsal to Snapchat, referring to the dancer as “the new Gleb.”
Kramer later took to Instagram to share a very bleak group shot showing Savchenko’s knee wrapped in a brace. The 32-year-old country singer captioned the pic, “This. Is. not. A. Happy. Photo.”
Savchenko shared a similarly disheartened photo of the group, but seemed somewhat more optimistic about his situation, writing, “Sorry @kramergirl for not being able to rehears with you today, hopefully my knee will be better and I can dance on Monday night.”
Earlier this season, Kramer herself suffered a painful injury when she sprained her rib muscles during rehearsals, but she assured her fans, “I’m a tough cookie and I’m gonna fight through it.” When the live show came around, the actress and country singer ended up acing a difficult tango.
While Hinchcliffe was able to pull off a perfect score on Monday with his replacement partner, Jenna Johnson, after Burgess was forced to temporarily pull out of the competition, only time will tell if Kramer and Bersten can find the same connection if Savchenko doesn’t recover in time.
