Derek Hough Calls Nastia Liukin An Amazing Friend After DWTS Elimination - Re-Watch All Their Dances Here!

Derek Hough Calls Nastia Liukin An Amazing Friend After DWTS Elimination - Re-Watch All Their Dances Here!

We’re still a little sad that we won’t get to see Nastia Liukin perform on the Dancing With The Stars.

The 26-year-old athlete’s pro partner Derek Hough wrote about going up and ending up in fourth place on the 20th season in his newest TVGuide blog.

Derek also opened up about the duo’s partnership: “I think the thing I’m most disappointed in is that I don’t think people truly saw what Nastia and our relationship were like. We did have a great heart-to-heart last week, but we’ve always been close. Out of all my partners, Nastia has always been the most affectionate toward me. I’m not even exaggerating.”

He added, “She’s an amazing friend — and nurse! She was always asking me if I needed ice. She was constantly giving me water. She played nurse on top of juggling two partners. It’s those moments, that tenderness and heart — there was so more beauty to show, but they went for the cheap shot. I feel bad for that. But it is what it is. You can’t control it.”

“Thank you for the love and support the last 9 weeks. It’s been an incredible experience and I wouldn’t have changed it or had it any other way. Thank you @derekhough for teaching me so much about myself and life. I will always remember ending this journey dancing with you one last time during our waltz. What a special moment that was. Thank you @sashafarber1 for stepping in and being such a huge part of our journey. We couldn’t have gotten this far without you. Xoxo #DWTS,” Nastia wrote on Instagram.

Derek added, “So grateful to be able to dance again tonight and have Anastasia back in my arms. So proud of her. Such an incredible night. The performances, the concepts, the connections, the emotion, the all round ENERGY of tonight was very special. So honored to perform a dance for our head judge Len Goodman. Proud to be apart of a show that after 20 seasons still surprises me and can bring incredible emotion, story telling, creativity and good old fashioned live entertainment. #DWTS @nastialiukin.”

Nastia Liukin and Derek Hough are reunited at the end of the evening for a Viennese Waltz during Dancing With the Stars on Monday night (May 11) in Hollywood.

The 25-year-old gymnast danced almost the entire dance with Derek – and then at the end, met with judge Len Goodman on the dance floor and finished up the last few seconds with him. It was especially emotional because during the segment, Len disclosed that he really could not dance anymore due to health issues.

Nastia and Derek finished up the night with a perfect score all around. Congrats!
