Gladys Knight reflects on her "Dancing With The Stars" experience.

The morning after Gladys Knight was voted off "Dancing With The Stars," she stopped by "GMA" to reflect on her experience.

Robin Roberts asked "the Empress of Soul" to expand on her thought that the show helped her find the "fountain of youth." Knight said she felt rejuvenated because, "Everybody was so young at heart here, and the whole family feeling, it just makes you feel young, it makes you feel alive."

Knight, who noted she'd always loved dancing, explained that the show was as challenging as it was rewarding. "When I got an opportunity to do this, it was more than the dance. It was taking the chance to put another memory, another something into my life, which is what I like to try to do, go outside of my little comfort zone. And I'm so glad I made that decision, because I got way more than I expected."

Her "DWTS" partner Tristan MacMananus pointed out how fitting it was that Knight's first and last dances of the competition came on the show's Motown-themed nights.
