Watch Jana Kramer’s ’70s-Inspired ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Samba
Week 7 (Oct. 24) of Dancing With the Stars was Eras Night, so Jana Kramer and dance partner Gleb Savchenko drew inspiration from the 1970s for their dance. The pair performed a samba to "Get Down Tonight" by KC & the Sunshine Band.
Dressed in matching disco outfits, Kramer and Savchenko danced their way around the DWTS floor, which was set up to look like a laundromat. Readers can press play on the video above to watch their performance.
Kramer and Savchenko's '70s samba earned them a total of 34 points out of a possible 40. (During Week 6, they earned a perfect 40 points; previously, they scored 27 points in Week 1, 29 points in Week 2, 26 points in Week 3, 23 points in Week 4 and 26 points in Week 5, all out of a possible 30.) Still, the pair found themselves in jeopardy of being eliminated at the end of the night; fortunately, they were not voted off of the competition.
Eras Night also included two team dances, with Kramer and Savchenko as part of "Team Future." Along with Terra Jole, Sasha Farber, Laurie Hernandez, Val Chmerkovskiy, Marilu Henner and Derek Hough, they danced to Armin Van Burren's "Embrace" and earned a score of 35 (out of 40) points. Readers can watch that performance below.
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, however, the past couple of 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.
Kramer follows 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. Fans can vote for Kramer and Savchenko on the TV dancing competition’s official website.
