Former "Glee" star Heather Morris earned a perfect score on last night's "Dancing With the Stars" -- and then got eliminated. Fans took to Twitter to protest on her behalf.

Then again, many -- including The Washington Post -- debated whether Morris, who used to be a back-up dancer for Beyoncé, should have even been on the show in the first place.

Morris told E! Online she was just happy for one last time to be "amazing." Said the actress, "I was very, very excited to get the Disney 10s — and all the 10s — but I watch a lot of reality television. You don't know what's going to happen with these things, but I was very, very happy for the last time to be amazing and to get to dance with Maks [Chmerkovskiy] again... we missed that for the last three weeks."

Maks told E!, "I I just feel sad we had plans for some amazing Argentine tango, and thinking about freestyle and stuff...but given the caliber of dancer that Heather is, it's only right. It sucks, but it is what it is."

Pro dancer Peter Murgatroyd told E! she was also shocked by the elimination: "It's kind of awful. Like, the ending was awful. It makes me very upset because Maks was so looking forward to coming back and completing the rest of the season," Murgatroyd said. "I truly thought they were definitely going to be in the finals, like without a doubt. I don't know what happened, I don't know how it happened. I just felt really sorry for them."

Fans in the studio weren't happy either. "I have to say, in 24 seasons, that's probably the most vocally unhappy reaction we've gotten about a result," host Tom Bergeron said as loud booing erupted from the ticked-off audience.

What do you think? Was it fair that Heather and Maks got the boot?
