“A special moment last night! Thank you @derekhough for being not just a brilliant dance partner but a mentor and friend,” the 34-year-old athlete captioned.
Amy continued, “You have not only taught me about dancing and performing under pressure but about life. You deserved every compliment you recieved last night from the judges for your fearlessness and choreography. You are a gift to this world. #proudofyou #purdyhough #dwts.”
Later on, Derek joined Amy at the dance studio in Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon (May 13) to start on their final dances.
