‘Dancing With The Stars‘ has been going through a series of controversies. While the show was called out for its alleged racism, the judges were criticized by fans for being unclear about the show’s protocols. The fans of the show have seen many heartbreaking eliminations from the show so far.
Melora Hardin and Suni Lee’s eliminations were apparently very hard to take by the show’s fans. The fans feel as though the elimination was completely uncalled for, and that the judges made a poor judgment while choosing to let them walk away.
DWTS’ Monday, November 15, 2021 episode show the departure of two teams from the show. The system that was used to determine the elimination was a voting system in which fans gave their consensus on the teams. The consensus is then combined with the judges’ score and gets used for ranking the teams.
The first team that was announced in the last three were Melora Hardin with her dancing partner Artem Chigvintsev. The remaining two dancing teams were Amanda Kloots and Alan Bersten along with Suni Lee and Sasha Farber.
The judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli, Derek Hough and Len Goodman had a unanimous decision to take in order to save one team. Unfortunately, they saved Amanda and Alan over Suni and Sasha. While Melora Hardin’s team was already on the bottom, she was immediately disqualified.
Many fans took to Twitter in order to show their outrage over the eliminations. One Twitter user said “next category is: people who got ROBBED in the semi finals #DWTS.” Another fan tweeted “@sunisalee_ was robbed last night. She definitely deserves to be in the finals #DWTS.” Check out the series of tweets down below.
