Roshon and Chelsie's closeness during the dance duel proved to be their selling point to the judges.

Carrie Ann Inaba said they had "extremely good chemistry," while Bruno Tonioli cited their "connection."

As for Jaleel, who had a headline-making season after allegations surfaced several weeks ago that he and partner Kym had a heated rehearsal spat, the former "Family Matters" star told show co-hosts Brooke Burke and Tom Bergeron he was leaving happy.

"[I'm going to] tell you a secret, I really only thought I would last about three dances in this competition and I wanted to get three good dances off. That's what I told my momma. I said, 'Mom, I'm gonna give you three good dances. I promise you I [am not] going out first,'" Jaleel recounted after getting the news. "So, to get this far, I've made incredible friends. The fans have been incredible. I love Roshon Fegan, I'm happy they saved him. He has a bright future. Len, give him a 10."

Kym took a moment at the end of the show to thank her partner.
