They said final rehearsals for Dancing With the Stars wouldn't be easy, but not for this reason.

Just two days before the show's finale week kicks off, Jana Kramer shared some big news with her followers.

As it turns out, her partner Gleb Savchenko has the flu and it's having a serious impact on practices.

"One of us has the flu...well maybe two of us," Jana shared on Instagram Saturday afternoon while wearing a medicine mask next to her partner. "Excuse me while I go vitamin C overdose."

Just a couple hours later, the country singer updated fans while posing with fellow Dancing With the Stars troupe member Alan Bersten.

"Im being quarantined with @alanbersten," she shared with her followers. "Please feel better @glebsavchenkoofficial #flu."

A source confirmed to People that Gleb has the flu and is resting up this weekend. As to whether or not he can perform on Monday, the insider says it will be a "game-day decision."

If there's one contestant who has overcome obstacles during their season, it has to be Jana.

Earlier in the season, her partner was sidelined with a knee injury. In addition, Jana herself had to perform even after experiencing torn muscles in between her ribs.

"I've been going to a chiropractor, I got a couple of shots in my butt, I'm on a high dose of pain meds," she told E! News Sibley Scoles before also giving credit to Gleb for his support. "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."

This Monday's episode will also feature Laurie Hernandez, Calvin Johnson and James Hinchcliffe performing two dances with their partners.

If they are not eliminated, they will have just 24 hours to learn a new dance for Tuesday's season finale. We warned you it wasn't going to be easy, but it's certainly not impossible.

Dancing With the Stars airs Monday night at 8 p.m. only on ABC.
