Jana Kramer Explains Why She's Feeling 'Really Nervous' for DWTS Week 3

Country singer Jana Kramer is currently competing on Dancing with the Stars, fand she's blogging about season 23 exclusively for PEOPLE. Follow Kramer and her partner Gleb Savchenko, both 32, on Twitter!

Looking back on last week's dance, I feel like it went the best that it could have, especially with the amount of pain that I was in with my ribs. The pain was constant throughout the dance, so it was definitely hard, but I was proud that I went out there and I gave it my all!

Viewers wondered why I didn't tell Tom Bergeron about my pain when he asked. Although I was in pain, I told myself, 'No, I won't tell him' because I didn't want to be the person who says, 'oh I'm hurt' just because. You've got to fight through it – fight through your pain!

Cheryl Burke Reveals What She Tells 'Nervous' Ryan Lochte Before Each Dance

Dancing with the Stars' Cheryl Burke has returned to the reality dance competition she first joined in 2006, and is blogging about season 23 exclusively for PEOPLE. Follow Burke and her partner Ryan Lochte, both 32, on Twitter!

It's week three!

Looking back on Monday's dance, I really think that Ryan did an amazing job considering all of the drama that's been happening. Being in the bottom two will hopefully have people vote for us more. I've been in jeopardy a lot and I think that it kind of helps. It makes people realize they need to start voting! I think Ryan was very affected by it. He was shaking and said to me, "My legs are shaking. I don't know what's going to happen." All day I felt his energy because I knew that he thought that he was going to be the one going home, so I think he's thankful and grateful for everyone who voted. He really isn't ready to go home yet – he's put in a lot of time and heart into the show, and he really deserves people giving him a chance.
