Someone out there — Gladys Knight in fact — actually got paid to dance for several weeks with professional cutie Tristan MacManus and lost 60 lbs. in the process. That's the kind of thing you could charge a lot for.

So brava to Dancing With the Stars Season 14's Empress of Soul for not only having a great DWTS experience and making new friends but also getting in sexy shape at age 67.

"[Tristan] helped [by] wearing me out," Gladys told People of her weight loss. She added that that Freshology's Getslim with the Stars program also helped. For breakfast, Gladys told People, her pre-rehearsal meals consisted of a PowerBar, a protein drink and fruit.

"You've got to eat healthy and you've got to put a little movement into it," Gladys said after her elimination on the Week 6 Results Show.

We’ll definitely miss Gladys’ beautiful smile and Tristan’s beautiful … everything. Watch them say goodbye in their On the Red Carpet video after Tuesday’s show.

Watch the next new episode of DWTS on Monday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
