Who knew she and Willis were such good pals! Do we hear a #WCW?
Of course, Liukin handled her departure from the show during the semifinals with grace.
"All four of us were like, 'Can't we all just tie?'" she joked to Us Weekly of the remaining star contestants. "It's been such an amazing experience and an amazing ride. I mean, of course we would have loved to dance one more time, but everything happens for a reason."
Liukin's DWTS journey has definitely had its trying moments. She had to work for a few weeks without Hough. He injured his foot prior to the 10th anniversary special at the end of last month, but was able to return to dance with his Season 20 partner prior to their elimination
"To end our whole journey and experience with that [dance], I couldn't ask for anything more," Liukin also told Us. "And to be able to dance with Derek one last time, through the injury — it's been a roller coaster of emotion and pain, both physical and mental."
Now that Liukin has left the competition, there are three stars left. Noah Galloway, Riker Lynch and Rumer Willis will battle it out for the Mirror Ball next Monday night during the show's final showdown on ABC.
