It was another exciting night on Dancing With the Stars! Delta pinched hit to perform as a last minute replacement for Adele and another couple was sent home — only four couples remain standing! Despite giving it their all, Romeo and Chelsie Hightower were sent packing.
Romeo talked openly with reporters about being proud of his performance. “To be honest, I feel good. If this was last week, my head would be down. It’s one of those things. If you go out with a bang, you have no regrets. I gave it 110 percent yesterday.” He’s really bummed for Chelsie because she got him to do things he “could never do like shake my butt, shimmy on the ground.” Before the show he was “that kid who never danced.” He was previously afraid of dancing but that was then and this is now!
As the rapper takes away memories from the show, one highlight is all of the inspiration and support he received. He told OK! some pretty big names supported him this season. “Will Smith, he watched me every Monday and he gave me inspiration by saying, ‘Go out there and give it everything.’”
Will wasn’t the only celeb in Romeo’s corner. He also said Miley Cyrus was cheering him on, and of course his father, Master P! “She said her and her mom was voting for me. I don’t know about Miley, but her mom was voting for me! A lot of my friends. My dad called me every morning after the show and give me inspirational words, tell me that he’s proud of me no matter the outcome, how you’re a winner in my eyes. My mother.”
So, as the team heads home, who do they think will win the coveted prize? Chelsie mentioned it could be anyone’s game right now, they’re that good. “Everyone is super strong….So, it mostly comes down to who has the best freestyle, and at that point, Mark has done some pretty sick freestyles. It might be Chelsea.” And then Romeo added, “Yeah. Or it might be Kirstie!”
