As she continued to explain the heartfelt reason she wanted to dance to the number, Michelle added: “And I wasn’t alone, I wasn’t questioned for who I was, or what I looked like or if I wasn’t cool enough or skinny enough, I was just me and they loved me for me.
“This couple’s choice dance, I want to dedicate to the community that’s been there for me from the beginning.
“I will never leave you just as you’ve never left me,” she declared, speaking directly to the viewers at home.
