Jessi Hospitalized, Pasha Interviewed

Coincidentally, we get separate articles this morning on the team of Jessi Peralta and Pasha Kovalev.

Jessi Peralta was hospitalized Saturday suffering from severe dehydration. The Orlando Sentinel reports that she's fine now. There is no mention of how much rehearsal time with her partner was lost, or how it might affect their performance this week.
LINK has a Q&A with Pasha Kovalev.

Q. What inspired you to audition?

My dance partner [Garnis] saw on the TV that auditions were going to happen and asked me if I wanted to participate. At the time, I was recovering from illness. I had real serious health issues at that point, so I said that I don't know if I will get strong enough.
