As season 17 of Dancing With the Stars progress, it just gets harder and harder to say goodbye. This time, the tough farewell went to Brant Daugherty, who has been a fan favorite all season. In spite of a near-perfect foxtrot WHICH THEY PERFORMED IN FRONT OF CHER!!!, the Pretty Little Liars star and his pro partner Peta Murgatroyd were sent packing.
Before we get to the elimination details, let’s talk for a moment about the fact that Cher (CHER!) was on hand at the judge’s table for this week’s performances. As one of the entertainment industry’s most talented, timeless and legendary icons, the dancers were understandably stoked to have her in the ballroom critiquing their moves. They were also understandably nervous, but Amber Riley summed it up nicely saying, “I had a mini freak-out during the dance because I looked over and saw and was like, ‘Aahhh! It’s Cher!’ It was pretty unforgettable.” The Glee star then added, “She was so sweet when we walked up and spoke with her she was so down to earth and when you’re around her she makes you feel comfortable.”
Even though he got the boot this week, Brant Daugherty, also had kind words for Cher, saying it was “truly an honor” to perform for her. As for his elimination, the TV star seemed to be a little shell-shocked and admitted to feeling somewhat lost. “I’m just going to miss having something to work on, a project, something to do every day. A reason to get up and work hard. I’ll find a new one but it’ll take me a few days.” He continued, “It completely consumes your life and my life has been completely Dancing With the Stars for almost three months now. I don’t know what I’m going to do tomorrow.” Don’t worry, though. This isn’t the last we’ll see of Brant Daugherty, who will be back for the next season of Pretty Little Liars.
So what do you think about this week’s elimination? Brant’s departure leaves six couples in the running for the mirror ball trophy….who do you think will be on the chopping block next week? Tell us in the comments!
