"dancing with the stars" folks, they paid a special tribute to a tragedy with the show honoring the folks in boston. One couple, one couple is leaving the ballroom on this tough week and by the way they're with us live this morning. D.L. Hughley and pro partner cheryl burke. Cheryl, love you. Look at that boston fire department sweatshirt. I love you. Good morning, good morning. Boston pride, baby. Yeah. D.L., I know this was a tough week for you. Both of you are such good friends of the show. I have to ask you before we start even about the disappointment of you guys leaving the ballroom, what was it like on the dance floor, i mean, early this week knowing that everybody was thinking so much about what was happening on the east coast? It was really, really hard but, you know, I thought -- i think we -- I felt a little conflicted, you know, it felt a little sack krilegious to be dancing but we felt it was a distraction for a lot of people so we did the best we could but something really we thought about during the whole routine. Yeah, so many people were up for that distraction though. We saw it on twitter saying, thank you, thank you, thank you, I needed a reason to laugh or smile on this particular early in the week. Now we're watching you guys right now so tell me, I mean, even george has said a little rough on the dance floor, d.L., what do you think? Even rupper, I'm even rougher, d.L. A big improvement. I don't care about dancing. What are you talking about? I did it to have fun and, you know, it went from learning how to dance to "hunger games" in tights. Did you get what you wanted out of it? I got -- well, I got a great friend in cheryl and so that was really -- and I had a lot of fun. I lost a little weight and I'm burring my dance shoes on the way out of here. Cheryl, are you going to miss d.L.? I'm going to miss him. I mean coming from like a serious season like all-stars last season to this season has been so much fun and he's reminded me how much fun the show can really be so we had such a great time together. He's going to be a friend forever for sure. You left on good terps with len. How did that feel? You ended your feud? No, I didn't. I despise len. What did make me happy is seeing -- what did make me happy seeing len dance at the end on -- I didn't know whether he was dancing or I was watching an oatmeal commercial. So much for ending the feud. Feud renewed. Oh, yeah. D.L., Who is going to win this year? It was -- it was -- i think -- I have to go with jacoby. Same. I think we're rooting for jacoby. I want to be for andy dick. I just want to actually say that on tv. I want to be -- I wanted to be team dick but I can't say that. I love you both. I love you both. I'm going to miss you so much. D.L. And team dick can't go together. An all new "dancing with the stars" monday starting at 8:00, 7:00 central on the "a," the "b" and the "c."
