The couple were voted off the program after Phillips forgot part of her routine and froze during Monday night's live show.
"I'm disappointed. I'm sad, but I have to take responsibility. I messed up. I have an amazing partner. I love you, Tony. You're amazing," Phillips said, upon learning her fate.
"Tony's amazing. He has been there for me 100 percent the entire way and I'm very grateful to have been on the show and had the opportunity. Thank you everyone who voted for me."
