Jana Kramer’s Contemporary ‘DWTS’ Routine Was for Her Daughter [WATCH]

Subscribe to Lonestar 99-5 FM on

Jana Kramer danced for her daughter on Monday night (Oct. 10). The country singer and dance partner Gleb Savchenko performed a contemporary dance during Week 5 of Dancing With the Starsto Martina McBride‘s “In My Daughter’s Eyes.”

Kramer and Savchenko’s dance was inspired by the week’s theme of “Most Memorable Year.” As her most memorable year, Kramer selected 2016 — they year she gave birth to her daughter, Jolie Rae Caussin, who was on the sidelines watching her mom dance.

“Since I’ve had Jolie, I’m the strongest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” Kramer said during Monday’s DWTS episode. “She has completely given me strength that I didn’t even know it was possible for me to have.”

Readers can press play on the video above to watch Kramer and Savchenko’s performance. The pair earned 26 points with this week’s dance; previously, they scored 27 points in Week 129 points in Week 226 points in Week 3 and 23 points in Week 4.

“It was an emotional night but a happy night,” Kramer tells ET. “Gleb choreographed an amazing routine for my daughter and just everything that I’ve been through, and I feel like we were able to share that in the story … I’m really proud of it.”

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; she discussed that relationship, as well as how it affects her now, as a mother, before her performance on Monday night.

Kramer follows in the footsteps of fellow country stars Wynonna Judd, Kellie PicklerChuck WicksSara 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.
