It’s tragic to see our favorite couple Chad & Cheryl leave DWTS — but now they might have the chance to become partners FOR REAL!

It’s now down to a battle of talent on Dancing With The Stars after Chad Ochocinco and partner Cheryl Burke were voted off May 18. Shortly after the show, Chad took to his Twitter to apologize to Cheryl for their loss: “baby girl I’m so sorry I let you down, I’m used to dancing in the endzone not the dance floor, my apologies :(” Was Chad more upset about losing a challenge or about disappointing his possible loved one?

Either way, Chad got pretty far in the competition for having no dance experience whatsoever. In an interview with ABC after he danced the Waltz, Chad admitted that his lack of experience, “makes me more competitive. That’s what this process is about … people with no dance experience at all.  Climbing those mountains, getting over those obstacles. I’ve enjoyed it all the way.”

The final three competitors — Evan LysacekErin Andrews and Nicole Scherzinger — will return next week for the final round. We can’t wait to see who will win!

So will Chad and Cheryl be able to go public with their secret romance now? Probably not, because Chad has his dating show, The Tournament coming out on VH1 in July. Looks like they’ll have to keep their relationship under wraps for a while longer.

For now, check out the videos below of Chad & Cheryl! At least they had Sarah McLachlan and Miley Cyrus perform live to serenade them goodbye. Miley even broke out singing her latest single, “Can’t Be Tamed,” from inside of a cage!
