A Dancing with Stars Finalist Has the Flu -- Can They Compete?

Will they be able to compete?

Lily Sparks

Have you ever gotten sick at the absolute worst possible time? Well, Gleb Savchenko has. The Dancing With the Starsprofessional dancer has come down with the flu the weekend before Monday's (November 21) penultimate episode, and sources say there may be a game day decision not to compete.

If Savchenko gets enough rest this weekend (rehearsals have been rescheduled to give him some down time) and eats all the oranges and chicken soup and what not, and then somehow triumphs on Monday night alongside partner Jana Kramer, he will then have 24 hours to learn a new dance for the Tuesday night finale. Which, whew! The one thing that sounds harder than learning a whole new dance in 24 hours is learning a whole new dance with a headache and chills.

Still, the true professional is battling forward. Kramer shared an Instagram of the partners in the studio, with Gleb wearing a medical mask.

And then another where she explained she was "in quarantine" with Alan Bersten.

...Leading fans to wonder, even if Gleb recovers, will Jana then be too ill to compete?

Hopefully not! And good luck on the dance floor!
