DWTS' Andy Grammer talks Kim Zolciak's exit and next week's surprise

So last night was an incredible evening on Dancing with the Stars. I got to wear a plaid suit with a pink bow tie, which has always been a bucket list item for me.

As the weeks go on, I definitely feel I'm starting to have some context for how this whole thing works. Each week, I'm getting more and more comfortable.
