Skai Jackson Reacts To 'Dancing With The Stars' Results: 'We Did The Best We Could'

Skai Jackson is speaking out after the results of the Dancing With The Stars semi-finals on Monday night (November 16).

The 18-year-old actress and her partner Alan Bersten performed two dances during the show, and ended up in the bottom three.

Two couples were sent home – Skai and Alan, and Johnny Weir and Britt Stewart.

“We literally did the best we could. Obviously it’s a really sad thing, but I’m not really sad sad about it,” Skai told ET after the show. “I’m just happy that I was able to be on this journey with such an amazing person. I feel like we made it so far, we made it to week 10, we got through all the dances except for the finale and it’s just been really awesome. It’s sad, of course, but I’m actually happy at the same time.”

“I feel like when you make it to the semifinals there’s a proud moment, regardless,” Alan added. “Do I look back and wish we did anything differently? No. Not at all. I feel like it was so inspiring to see Skai grow every week. She absolutely killed it tonight and it’s just the way it goes sometimes.”

“Honestly, it was a great season, and it was very much one of the toughest competitions,” he said. “This season was so competitive, and so to make it this far is just such a blessing. I am very, very happy. Rehearsals were fun, dancing was fun. I am very thankful and grateful.”
