at . Comments

Marissa Jaret Winokur and Tony Dovolani had an impressive, unexpected run on Dancing with the Stars.

But it finally came to an end last night, as the dup was voted out before next week's final.

"No one expected us to get this far," Jaret Winokur told host Samantha Harris. "I didn't expect us to get this far. Tony didn't expect me to get this far…This has been such an incredible, incredible experience."

Despite posting the lowest scores among the remaining dancers, Jaret Winokur and Dovolani continued to advance in the competition, shocking  viewers last week by edging out Mario and Karina for a spot in the semifinals.

Jaret Winokur teared up last night, but still encouraged her fans:

"I want everyone to go out and do something fun and do something that makes you feel sexy and shake what your momma gave you!"

Next week's finals will feature Kristi Yamaguchi and Mark Ballas; Jason Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska; and Cristian de la Fuente and Cheryl Burke. Who do you think will win?
