WARNING: DWTS Spoilers Ahead!
Season 18 of ABC's hit show Dancing With The Stars aired the first half of its two-part finale Monday night, and only four couples remained at the start. After all tangos were tangoed and the waltzes waltzed, it was time for one of the last remaining couples to go home.
Much to their dismay, the electrifying duo of James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd found themselves voted off the show, even after giving two dazzling performances, and sharing a passionate kiss during one of their routines.
Maslow and Murgatroyd's potential off-screen romantic relationship has been heavily rumored since the show began, and ET managed to catch up with the ousted duo after the show to ask them about the possibility of them sparking something romantic now that the show was over.
"We're definitely going out for a drink after this," revealed Maslow. "I know I could use a drink."
"We're just gonna see what happens," added Murgatroyd with a smile.
Maslow also opened up about what how he felt about making it to the finals.
"What's nice about going today is we're not really going anywhere. We're still here tomorrow. We've made it all the way," said Maslow, 23. "We've literally been here every step of the way the entire competition, and it's hard to ask for much more than that."
As for pro-dancer Murgatroyd, she had nothing but praise for her DWTS partner.
"He did such an amazing job tonight," said the beautiful 27-year-old dancer. "[He did] two incredible, hard-hitting dances and I couldn't have asked any more from him. Honestly, this whole season has been such a joy and a pleasure."
Murgatroyd even said that Maslow's dancing talent managed to make her a better dancer as well.
"He brought my choreography skills up [with] his amount of talent and ability," she said. "I had to really make sure I was stepping up to the plate and giving him the best that I could give."
Check out the video for more from Maslow and Murgatroyd on their time together during DWTS, and watch the Season 18 finale tonight, Tuesday May 20 at 8/7c on ABC.
