He may have been sent home, but he’s definitely still a star. Andy Grammer, who was eliminated on week eight of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ came back for the finale to put on an epic performance of ‘Good To Be Alive (Halleujah).’
Honey, you’re definitely good. We were totally crazy about Andy Grammer‘s performance on the big finale of Dancing with the Stars on Nov. 24 — he slayed it beyond words when he rocked the stage with his latest single “Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah),” and reminded us why we’ve missed him in the ballroom so darn much!
Andy had a huge smile on his face as he danced around the entire stage while belting out his feel good song, and he looked totally awesome in an all-black ensemble, including a super sexy leather jacket. The whole performance really came together thanks to the group of male dancers, dressed in red, who busted their moves behind him, and it was so fun to watch! Later in the show, he joined Chaka Khan on stage for a rendition of “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” which was super sweet, too.
Andy had a different experience than we were used to on the show. He was initially paired with Peta Murgatroyd, but after an injury, she had to leave the show and Allison Holker took over. We know that the show was really important to Andy, as he went on to honor his late mother, who passed away from cancer. He actually performed the tribute to her on the night he went home — which he called “fitting.” The following morning, he went on GMA and said he found grieving through dancing.
“I never imagined I was going to grieve my mothers passing through dance…even that sentence is amazing,” he wrote on Instagram following his elimination. “A genuine thank you to everyone who watched, cheered, cried, voted and came through it all with me. I will take this experience and the wisdom it’s given me forever. To the old friends and all the lovely new ones, it has been a pleasure.”
So, did you love Andy’s performance as much as we did?
