Next up on the "Heat index," "Dancing with the stars" dynamic duo taking center stage. Each of the seven remaining cups took on the role of an iconic twosome like Romeo and Juliet, tarzan and Jane but one of then, well, they had to say good-bye. Take a look. On this eighth week of competition, the couple leaving right now is -- Michael and Emma. ? Such a gentleman, such a gentleman, Michael helping Emma with her chair right there. Yes. Oh, it was an emotional -- thanks for coming to this morning. Flying all night long and being in the social square. You were over there at the Twitter mirror and just really engaging with our audience and we appreciate that so much. But it was so emotional last night. It was weird. I started a dancing show and I thought dancing was just you shake your butt a little bit and wander around the floor and it turned into this emotional journey where we would show up in practice every day and I wanted to make Emma proud of what she was teaching me and I wanted to feel the song and hear the song and have this connection with her and it's -- you get really invested. We said we were done last night, it kind of broke my heart. Emma you said too that being with Michael really had an impact on you. You don't really plan for that and you spend so much time in each other's pocket you affect each other and I was so happy I got to spend it with someone who wears his heart on his sleeve and really affected me and it was just -- it meant more to me than any other dancing or any number that we did. It was fab. Such a beautiful dance last night. Even moved Len. Yeah. That 'S difficult. I wanted to move him back to England. Showed up with a little bit of an attitude the prior week we did the most beautiful tango in the history of the internet only one thing that -- of me being graceful on it and it was a dance to weeks ago. It was like, Lenny, did you not see that? Tavis it was a beautiful dance. Funny you mention the internet. Everybody knows you from NASCAR. Are more and more people going, dancing? My favorite thing and walk through the airport and this sweet little lady went -- and I'm like -- she said, you're the dancer. Yes, I am, honey and I really appreciate that. And, Emma, Michael was still racing, driving while he was dancing. What was it like to juggle the two. That schedule was hectic every single week we had at least two or three places to go to. But I'm a new NASCAR fan now because of it. I just got thrown in the deep end and learned all the terminology, well, I tried to. It was great. I love being a part of the NASCAR world. She said does the sprint cup guys fight every week like that? It's been a lot of fun watching the sprint cup chase come down and looking forward to the next few races. I bet you are. That lingo, getting squirrely in the corner, trading paint. I know. Rough and rocket and I really liked it. Michael, well done. Thank you. I'm really proud of my girl. We're proud of you. We are. Thank you. Congratulations. It was a wonderful experience and I'm so thankful that I got to be a part of it. We're going to miss you. Your humor, dance, everything like that. Emma, thank you so much.
