Emma Slater was crying after she and Bill Engvall were eliminated in the Season 17 Finals, but she was crying those same tears in rehearsals, knowing this was her last week to dance with Bill, either way.
Bill was visibly relieved to be sent home before the second night of the Finals, so he didn't have to do that fusion dance. After Monday’s show, he told On the Red Carpet he “couldn’t be happier” about the entire experience, and he’s so glad to see Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke, Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff, and Amber Riley and Derek Hough as the final three.
"It's the perfect ending,” Bill said. "This is the way it's supposed to [be], with Amber, Jack, and Corbin — all three of those I just love to death." On that note, Amber came over and gave him a kiss on the cheek.
As Bill and Emma had both said for weeks, they never thought they'd get past Week 4. To be there in the Finals in Emma’s first year as a pro with Bill as the oldest man to ever make it that far — it was just a thrill.
Plus, he turned out some pretty great dances over the season. So to celebrate Bill and his oh-so-happy DWTS run, here are our fave dances of his, ever.
