“An exciting and fantastic last dance for Cheryl Burke. We hope to see you on the jury in the future,” tweeted one DWTS fanatic
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Dancing with the Stars season 31 finale is live! Fans have speculated whether Gabby Windey, Charli D’Amelio, Shangela or Wayne Brady will take away the season’s league title. Last night we saw Disney+ bring on stage some of the old contestants and professional dancers who were eliminated midway.
Meanwhile, professional dancer Cheryl Burke, who announced her departure from the show as a dancer, was set to perform with Derek Hough and Louis Van Amster. But due to Derek’s injury, he couldn’t attend the finals night. The pro dancer took the stage in a shimmering gold dress with her final jive on “Copacabana.” Cheryl announced her departure on Instagram, saying: “Tomorrow night will officially be my last dance as a professional dancer at @dancingwiththestars. That was one of the absolutely most difficult decisions of my life and I am also confident that it is the right one. ‘ Cheryl’s final line of saying, ‘I’ve got a few things up my sleeve though, so don’t worry,’ led many fans to believe that she could return to the show as a judge, if not a dancer.’ DWTS’ fans have been connecting the dots since Len Goodman announced his retirement from ‘DWTS’ and Cheryl announced her departure from the show as a professional dancer.
Taking to Twitter, one fan claimed: “An exciting and amazing last dance for Cheryl Burke. We hope to see you on the jury in the future.” Another fan wrote, “Love you @CherylBurke!!! Good luck for the future!! You have to judge. To which one fan responded, “I think there’s going to be an empty seat between Carrie Ann and Derek next season…” “Thanks @CherylBurke I’ll miss you but I’m so excited for your future,” claimed another fan .
Also, ‘DWTS’ fans cried when they saw Cheryl’s final appearance on the Disney+ stage. One fan tweeted, “Cheryl Burke quite a legend tbh.” Another claimed, “Congratulations @CherylBurke you were my first favorite dance pro on #DWTS. Wishing you the very best always!” One fan continued, “Tonight was super emotional!! I cried the whole show!!!” Another fan praised Cheryl’s performance: “No one can do it like Cheryl Burke and Louis Van Amstel.”
Cheryl ended her farewell note on social media by saying: “It was truly the experience of a lifetime. I’m excited for this next chapter in my career but man this one is going to be hard to beat! Until next time… love y’all always & forever xx.” Let’s keep waiting until the show officially announces who will take Len Goodman’s place on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars.
