'DWTS' Disney Night: Olivia Jade scores high, fans say 'it doesn't make sense'
Just as Olivia Jade was getting on audiences' good side, her baffling scores brought up her scandalous past once more on 'DWTS' on ABC
For all the Disney lovers out there, this week's 'Disney Night' has been an absolute treat! 'Dancing With The Stars' just had its special two-day Disney Night theme with the ever-improving contestants dressing up as their favorite Disney heroes and villains for magical performances!
Among the top performers is beauty vlogger Olivia Jade and partner Val Chmerkovskiy who's been one of the judges' favorite contestants as she steps it up each week. Hero Night saw her do the Samba in a 'Lion King' avatar with a high score of 35 out of 40. For Villain Night Jade and Chmerkovskiy danced the Jazz to “Remember Me (Ernesto de la Cruz)” from “Coco”. Here's what judges and fans thought of the performance.
In a tribute to Hispanic culture, Olivia and Jade as characters from the movie, 'Coco', did the Jazz. Judge Len commented it was such a joyous performance and gave her a score of 9. Judge Derek complimented her saying she was a natural dancer even if she didn't have any prior experience and also gave her a high score of 9. Judge Bruno excitedly repeated that he just loved it, and also scored her a 9. Only Judge Carrie Ann scored her an 8 saying she was a beat ahead but encouraged her growth. This brought her total to a 35 out of 40 for a grand total of 70 out of 80. Now while she scored handsomely, fans were left in confusion as her performance which was supposed to be villainous was more cutesy than anything else. It left fans baffled as to why she was scored so highly. They expressed their anger over the issue as they felt other contestants who did much better than her deserved higher scores. Here's how fans reacted.
A fan commented, "Careful, judges, Olivia’s mother went to prison for inflating her performance! #DWTS". Another viewer said, "Len undermarking Mel and Gleb but yet always overscoring Olivia and Val? Doesn’t make any sense #DWTS". Another user said, "#DWTS is rigged so Olivia Jade wins"
A viewer commented, "Olivia really got 3 nine’s for that lack lustered performance smdh #dwts #DancingWiththeStars". A fan also said, "Now I see how Olivia is like her mom, she's trying to bribe the judges. #DWTS". Another viewer said, "Maybe my dislike for Olivia is clouding my judgement but that dance did not deserve a 9. #DWTS".
