General Hospital fans who tuned in to ABC's Dancing with the Stars: Juniors last night were shocked when Hudson West (Jake Spencer) didn't make the final cut and was eliminated from the reality series.
Though the eleven-year-old had only just begun the season, this being his second performance in the challenge, his fans and GH family are still incredibly proud of all he achieved in the past few weeks.
"Please help me congratulate @hudsonwest on his spectacular #DWTSJuniors run, what an accomplishment!" shared GH's executive producer Frank Valentini on social media. "I speak for the entire #GH family when I say he did us proud."
This week's challenge had contestants performing a song from the year they were born, with West and his partner, Kameron Couch, choosing to dance the Paso Doble to Madonna and Justin Timberlake's "Four Minutes."
Though judge and season 26 winner Adam Rippon said he was impressed with West and Couch's performance, with a total score of 22 out of 30, the pair did not have the votes to make it through to the next round.
Said Rippon after West and Couch's performance: "You guys look like a really great partnership. It's so fun to watch, and you know what, the next step for you is to just loosen up. Enjoy! If you can loosen up just a little bit more, you can take the performance to an even higher level."
Some of the other children West competed against in his two episodes of DWTS:Juniors include reality star Honey Boo Boo, spelling bee champion Akash Vukoti, Stevie Wonder's daughter Mandla Morris, Black-ish actor Miles Brown, first MasterChef Junior winner Addison Osta Smith, Avengers: Infinity Wars actress Ariana Greenblatt, and skateboarding/surfer viral video sensation Sky Brown.
When asked about his favorite part of being on Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, West said, "Working with all these people and being on-stage has been such an honor for me."
