While Wynonna Judd
and her pro dance partner Tony Dovolani can breathe a sigh of relief for at least another week as they advance to the next round of "Dancing With the Stars," the country singer has to bid farewell to her pal Dorothy Hamill, who had to exit the competition under her doctor's orders, due to a spinal injury.
"She's an American treasure," said Wynonna backstage at the elimination show Tuesday evening (March 26). "I just worked with her (Dorothy) and I grew up on her. I don't know a person on the planet who doesn't know who Dorothy Hamill is, whether you're into skating or not. She represents a champion. I just did an ice skating event and sang while all of the gold medalists through history skated to my music. It was pretty amazing. It was one of the most spectacular things I've ever done. Dorothy and I bonded. We both felt like we were kindred spirits when we got here. I kind of feel like I'm missing my sister friend, the person I stand with."
