"We're really going out on a high note, and the thing is, this 'Team Dance' just showed us what this show is about. It's about family and everyone coming together. The thing is, I felt like I won every week. I learned something every single week and it was amazing for me, so thank you," DeMarcus, who was paired with pro Lindsay Arnold, said following his ouster.
John then addressed his professional partner Emma Slater and said, "I am so grateful that you were my partner and that you were my coach throughout this whole thing. This was truly one of the best experiences of my life, so thank you!"
Actress and Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch and partner Keo Motsepe were also in jeopardy of elimination prior to John and DeMarcus' departures; however, they were not necessarily one of the bottom-three couples based on judges' scores and America votes.
"Country Night" featured each celebrity and professional pairing performing two numbers. The first was a couple's dance featuring a style not yet performed, whether it be a samba, Viennese waltz, rumba, cha cha, jazz, Charleston or foxtrot dance.
