Peta Jane Murgatroyd had a lot of fun this year on DWTS despite being a little intimidated by her partner. According to People, she said with him being a foot and three inches taller than her, she didn’t know how to make it work. She said she thought about how she was going to make him graceful.
Fans were anxious to see Lamar after his troubled year of drug addiction and rehabilitation. Peta found herself more concerned with his size. Once she saw his smile, however, she knew that would get him far because it lights up the whole dance floor.
The pair worked well together and despite some poor scores in the first week, they tried hard to come back and do better. Despite being eliminated from the show, Peta is very proud of Lamar’s efforts. Peta got the opportunity to share some great news with her fans today.

Yesterday was an emotional day for me. After countless US Visas starting from 2006 and the last 5 years with a Green Card, I am officially a United States citizen. I’m getting misty eyed writing this, because I haven’t reflected on my life up until this point. I went deep down memory lane and I cried at the ceremony and then really cried in private. Memories surfaced that I had forgotten about, wishes that I had made as a child in my backyard with a full moon and promises that I made to myself and my family. Everything came full circle and here I was sitting in an auditorium with 1000 people, with my Ukrainian/American husband and my American son….a girl from little Perth with a big dream of being ‘someone’. I dreamt of performing on the worlds biggest stage, I dreamt of people knowing my name, I dreamt of being the best at my craft, I dreamt of making a difference in the world and most of all I dreamt of making my family proud and proving that I could do it at the highest level. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love the life I created, but it wouldn’t be possible without the United States giving me the chance to succeed and live in the best country in the world, where dreams really do come true. This country gave me my career, it’s where I found the love of my life, and it’s where my first child was born. This will always be home now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I looked around at the auditorium full of immigrants….their eyes were longingly filled with hope, faith and belief. I am an immigrant too. I will always be one, and I’m proud of it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you USA for accepting me, I will continue to work and treat this country with the upmost respect. I will honor the flag and The Pledge of Allegiance. I don’t take this lightly. God Bless America 🇺🇸 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @uscis #USCitizens #NewUSCitizen
