Ahead of her November 16, "Dancing with the Stars" performance, Kaitlyn Bristowe opened up about how special the dance would be as it will be a tribute to her late friend. While crying bitterly at the sad memories, Bristowe said on her Instagram story:

"Today was such a tough rehearsal. It's just tough at this point in the competition, but I'm dancing a very emotional dance on Monday."

The "Dancing with the Stars" contestant told her fans and followers that she hates burying her emotions and loves to talk about things and cry about things. That was why she was sharing the emotional truth behind her upcoming performance.

The 35-year-old revealed that her anticipated performance with her partner, Artem Chigvintsev, would be a tribute to her late childhood friend who passed away when she was 18 years old.

According to Bristowe, the song that she and Chigvintsev planned to dance to was her late friend's favorite song. The song was so special to her friend that it was even played at her funeral.

Although Bristowe truly has a lot of support and her fans love her dearly, her DWTS journey hasn't always been filled with pure positivity.

The Canadian native admitted that she had never shared this story on television because she did not want the story to become something that she used in her public life.

Although it had been so long ago, Bristowe said that listening to the song every day while rehearsing took her back to those times. Thinking and talking about her late friend got her so emotional.

Bristowe has been through quite a lot while competing in the 29th season of "DWTS" this year. Among the many challenges faced are the numerous injuries she sustained. In a Goofy video, she highlighted her wounds on her Instagram:

"Wow, you can really injure yourself during dance. What a coinci-dance."

Bristowe's amusing video began with her lip-syncing along to Handsome Dancer's silly song "Coincidence." As it progressed, she playfully highlighted all the scars, bumps, and bruises that she has sustained on her quest to attain the Mirrorball trophy.

There were scabs on her knee, a bandaged angry-looking toe, and blistered heels to show for all her hard work. Although Bristowe truly has a lot of support and her fans love her dearly, her DWTS journey hasn't always been filled with pure positivity.

Early in September, she had what she referred to as a weak moment when trolls hatefully commented on her looks and criticized her, claiming that she looks old and fake.

Her fans were there in the comments to offer their sympathy and support while rooting for her success in the final week. Weeks later, as she prepares to dazzle the judges and audience with her tribute performance, Bristowe can only hope for the best.
