The 15-year-old Vine star took to Instagram after the show.
“Sadly I don’t get to walk away with a mirror ball but I do get to walk away with a life long best friend,” Hayes captioned a photo with partner Emma Slater.
He continued, “Thank you to everyone who voted for us each week and kept us in it. Doing this show changed my life. And to all the couples left, guys go kill it you are all such amazing people and dancers so I’m really excited to see what you guys have in store. I love you guys.”
Emma tweeted, “I love you @HayesGrier you will always be family”
