McLean talked to ET right after his elimination and spoke about having to forgo dancing in next week’s Semi-Finals. “I don’t think it’s really hit me yet, to be honest, but tomorrow it’ll be an emotional hangover for sure,” AJ said.

The gracious loser then thanked his partner Cheryl Burke, saying, “It’s been an absolutely gracious journey, and I’m grateful for every experience that I’ve endured with this amazing woman.”

Cheryl and AJ were sent home on Monday’s episode after they performed a Viennese Waltz to Queen’s song “Somebody to Love.” Very early on AJ made a mistake that all of the judges commented on. Nonetheless, the charismatic and talented pair finished with a score of 23/30.

AJ said later, “This was the first time we’ve messed up in a dance since the beginning, at all, but in my honest opinion I think the way we handled it was like a couple of pros.”

But Cheryl had a different mindset and said she was frustrated and disappointed with the judge’s scoring. She also said that in her mind the rules of how the dances are judged appear unclear.

“There’s rules in ballroom, and as far as I’m concerned this is a ballroom show, I thought,” Cheryl said, adding that she does not see the scoring as being consistent.

She added, “I already had his other two routines choreographed for the Semi-Finals. Normally I’m not that confident going in, but I was like, ‘For sure, there’s no way [we’ll get eliminated].’”

Sorry Cheryl, them’s the breaks!
