LOS ANGELES, March 5 (UPI) -- U.S. recording artist Jewel and TV personality Nancy O'Dell have suffered injuries and won't be competing on "Dancing with the Stars," ABC said Thursday.
People magazine said both the singer and the "Access Hollywood" host suffered knee injuries as they prepared for their planned "Dancing" debuts next Monday. Their replacements are expected to be announced during the first episode of the new season.
"Though we share in their disappointment that they can no longer continue, their physical well-being takes precedent above all else. We thank them both for giving it their all and wish them a quick and full recovery," "DWTS" Executive Producer Conrad Green said in a statement.
