It's always tough to see a bro go.

Last night on Dancing With the Stars, we said goodbye to Andy Dick, who, to his credit, definitely lasted longer than most critics predicted. Everyone was sad to see him go, but especially Sean Lowe, who says he has made a "friend for life" in Andy.

"I was probably closer to Andy than I have been with any other male celebrity, so I'm sad to see him go," the former Bachelor tells us. "But I've made a friend for life. He probably lasted a lot longer than he should have."

That may have been some of the relief talking, as Lowe revealed backstage after the show that he thought he was the one getting eliminated last night.

"I think we came in expecting the worst; both of us thought tonight might be our last night," he admitted.

Meanwhile, DWTS pro Mark Ballas is battling a back injury, but he insists it won't hinder his performance.

"I've seen better days, but I walk it off," he laughs, adding that he's used to performing with injuries. "It is what it is. In season five, I danced with a dislocated shoulder. I danced with a broken foot. I danced on a torn knee. I'll be around as long as it holds up."

His partner Aly Raisman gushed to us about how tough he was to perform while injured, and the moment was made especially adorable when Ballas reached over and brushed his partner's hair off her shoulder—a really cute don't-miss moment, so make sure to see our interview with the DWTS cast!

Plus, we talked with So You Think You Can Dance stars Twitch and Allison Holker about their recent engagement. To hear the romantic proposal story, watch their interview below!
