Jana did say that Gleb Savchenko is helping her to get through the pain and still dance. She said, “At the end of the day, it was his friendship and his confidence and his partnership. He was like, ‘We got this.’ He’s really inspiring me to keep going.”
If you don’t know who Jana Kramer is, she is a country singer, but was also on the hit show One Tree Hill. On last night’s show, Jana performed to the theme song of the show and Gavin DeGraw was there to perform the song. Kramer shared that they got a better score than last week, so they were “pumped.” They did have to alter the dance a little bit because of Jana Kramer’s injury, but it worked out great anyway. Gleb shared that Jana has never danced like that during rehearsals or a dress run before.
Gleb said that he explained to Jana that she is now becoming an athlete and so she has to push through the pain for one minute.

People shared that Jana Kramer shared about her injury with them and she really just doesn’t want anyone to think that she is a baby. Jana wrote her own blog for People. She shared about her big nerves on premiere night.
“I don’t think I’ve ever been as nervous as I was before we went out on stage during last week’s premiere. I think my nerves were so out of control because I’ve never been pushed as far outside my comfort zone as I have been on Dancing with the Stars. I just didn’t want to go out there and fail and give people more to criticize.”
Jana Kramer revealed that Sophia Bush was Snapchatting her and Carrie Underwood even sent her flowers. It sounds like Jana has a lot of support even though she has been going through a rough time in her personal life. Jana even heard from her grandma who called her while she was backstage. Kramer said that she won’t push herself so hard that she ends up needing surgery, but she isn’t going to just quit the show either.
