"My confidence is back, I believe in myself more now," she said, while Chmerkovskiy said, "We have no regrets ... it's up to the people."

Kimmel, putting the shocking elimination into clear perspective said, "I blame America for this.

After Inaba told them their dance's shortcoming had "a lot to do with the choreography," Chmerkovskiy said, "It's all me, I'll take the blame," to which Inaba coolly responded, "Good -- I'm glad you do."

Chmerkovskiy said he and Inaba had made up "to an extent."
