Judge Bruno full of enthusiasm said he released the beast within and was a mortal combat-like power-packed performance, scoring him a 9.

The special dance-off saw him face off against Amanda Kloots and her partner Alan Bersten. The two had to perform the Cha Cha to 'Together Again' which was judged by Len Goodman. He said both of them gave clean, crisp performances but it all hinged on one step called the New York. This saw him award his 2 bonus points to Amanda.

Now although Cody did quite well on Monday, fans of the show weren't happy. He will be seen in next week's semifinals which fans arent happy about. This is what they expressed on Twitter.
