“I’m actually very happy. The judges have been amazing to me all season,” Sparks said after the show. “I’ve grown so much on this journey. I am sad to go home, but I am really happy to sleep in tomorrow and to get a massage and to get some physical therapy and to spend time with my son. So there’s lots of silver linings.”
“It gets tougher as the weeks go by, and everybody is good. Everybody has people that love them and adore them at home. So it’s tough,” 彼女は続けた. “I was watching the judges actually. They really were grappling with who they wanted to save, so I’m happy that I made it a difficult decision for them.”
Sparks also admitted that she had hesitations about taking part in 星と踊ります, but her family encouraged her to stay in the competition.
“I almost didn’t do this at all. About a month before, my stomach was in knots just thinking about it because I was so nervous and I almost pulled out of this,” 彼女は共有しました. “And my son and my husband were like, '番号, you can do this. 了解しました. It’s OK.’ And I’m really glad I did it.”
Despite her elimination, スパークス revealed that she is not ready to hang up her dancing shoes and will “絶対に” be incorporating choreography into her concerts.
“I honestly feel like this journey has really kind of opened me up in a way,” 彼女は言いました. “I feel like a new person. I’m still the same person that I was, but I feel new. I feel limitless almost. Like the energy has kind of shifted and I’m about to step into a really amazing new chapter.”
