ET’s Katie Krause caught up with the “2 On” singer and her partner backstage after the show, and the pair reacted to getting the axe in the fourth week, despite routinely earning some of the highest scores among the contestants.
“I feel like we did our best every week so that’s what’s really important,” the 25-year-old singer shared. “We had fun so that’s all that matters. It happens.”
Despite not getting the love she needed from viewers at home, the singer was clearly appreciative of her time on the show and of the fans that got her to this point in the competition.
“Thank you to everyone who did vote for us. It was really fun honestly. We appreciate all of the support,” she said. “[It’s] very humbling, very sweet. It was a great experience so that’s really nice of everyone.”
Despite their impressive scores and well-received routine, the pair found themselves in jeopardy alongside Harry Potter actress Evanna Lynch and her pro partner, Keo Motsepe, and were ultimately eliminated.
Tinashe managed to keep her spirits high as she and Brandon took center stage for their final bow, and were embraced in a big group hug with her fellow cast members.
