Amy Purdy on "Dancing With the Stars" Finals: 'I Feel the Pressure Now More Than Ever'

ABC/Adam Taylor(LOS ANGELES) -- Amy Purdy may still have to "ice" her injuries every night, but the Paralympian has defied the odds and made it to the finals on Dancing With the Stars.

Purdy and partner Derek Hough scored a total of 78 Monday night, only two points from a perfect score, cruising into the finals, while gold medalist Charlie White was voted off.

Everyone seems to be a Purdy fan, even Oprah Winfrey, who called during the duo's week of rehearsals to add her voice of support.

Now that she's in the final, Purdy, 34, tweeted Monday night, "I feel the pressure now more than ever."

She also thanked everyone for their support and said she was "sad to see you go @CharlieWhite."

Dancing With the Stars returns next week for a two-night finale.

The remaining stars are Purdy, Candace Cameron Bure, James Maslow, and Meryl Davis.
