This week, Artem opened up about the elimination with partner Maureen McCormick, being thankful for their time on the show and their Eras Night performance.
“I’m feeling sad that we have to go home. I wish we weren’t leaving on this particular week,” he wrote about their elimination. “I was bummed about slipping on the floor and not finishing the dance. I wish it could be a better dance for us, but it’s okay. I mean, everyone has to leave at some point. So, it is just what it is.”
“Yea, it’s sad but someone has to go home and unfortunately it’s us. It’s been an incredible journey. I’m so glad to get to know Maureen on so many different levels and it’s been a great partnership. I will remember it for a long time. I’m excited to see how the rest of the season unfolds!”
