'Dancing With The Stars': Justina Machado scores 26, fans say she did better than Nelly and 'deserved all 10s'
Justina Machado and Sasha Farber have brought their A-game to the dance floor ever since the show started. When Justina made her first performance, she was vocal about her love for dance. Undoubtedly, their performance has been impressing the judges ever since the premiere episode.
In the October 26 episode, Justina and Sasha did not leave a chance to make sure they brought the horror element into their performance. The pair chose to perform a Tango. She decided to take on the role of Carrie from the famous horror movie that goes by the same name.
Justina admitted she loved the movie and really like the character. Sasha too was excited to step on the dance floor and get the groove on. As the performance started, the pair did not hesitate to make sure the judges get some goosebumps. Justina even incorporated a scream into her performance to make sure everyone is shocked.
The pair managed to use the entire dance floor for their routine and the judges loved it. Carrie Ann Inaba was vocal about her thoughts on Justina and the chances of her winning the competition. She added that she was in love with the way Justina used the entire stage for every performance.
Bruno Tonioli thought that Justina was a beast when it comes to her performance. However, he asked her to pay attention to some of her steps to make sure she does better. Derek Hough also loved the performance but asked Justina to pay attention to the movements of her feet. Carrie Ann and Derek gave Justina a 9 while Bruno gave her an 8. This brought her to a total score of 26.
Fans were not happy as they thought she deserved better. "Justina was cheated. She deserved all 10s!" read one comment. "Not the judges giving Justina’s AMAZING dance a lower score than NELLY’S STIFF ASS DANCE???" read another comment. Some were not happy that Nelly, who got all nines, had a higher score than Justina as the comment read, "Excuse me what? So Nelly has a higher score than Justina? This is some bullshit. I'm so done. Bye." "Justina absolutely MURDERED that dance! she's overdue for at least one 10," read another.
