'Dancing With The Stars' Finale: Ally Brooke bags a perfect score for her jive routine as fans accuse judges of playing favorites
Ally Broke and her partner Sasha Farber performed a jive routine for the finale and while the judges were impressed with the performance, viewers thought that she was off beat.
Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber have come a long way on 'Dancing With The Stars'. Brooke initially became a target of negativity as many people pointed out her dancing skills while adding that she does not deserve to be on the show. However, over time, the pair worked hard and made it to the top.
From being in the bottom two Brooke went on to get the season's first perfect score and she followed it up with several perfect scores. In today's season finale, Brooke and Farber decided to perform a jive routine and try their hand at impressing the judges one last time.
To surprise the fans, Brooke even performed a singing segment at the start of her performance. Reminding people that not only is she a good dancer but also a good singer. Her performance left the judges mesmerized and impressed. Len Goodman assured her that she had nothing to worry about as her performance was good.
Bruno Tonioli thought the same as he stated that the performance was "full throttle". He further added that they "succeeded on every level". Meanwhile, Carrie Ann Inaba added that a dance like the one she performed for the finale was the reason she was in the contest and the finale. The judges were impressed with her performance and all of them awarded her a 10 giving her a total score of 30.
While the judges seemed to be convinced that Brooke had put forth a perfect performance, the viewers thought otherwise. Many took to social media to express their disappointment with the performance as they hinted that it was not worthy of a 10. "I would give her an 8," read one comment.
Another wrote, "Completely off...yikes..." Some were not a fan of Brooke's singing segment as the comment read, "Not a singing competition. Carrie Ann still showing her favoritism." While another fan echoed similar thoughts on favoritism as the comment read, "Gee what a surprise, all 10’s. Unfortunately after what happened last week, I don’t trust the judges. #PlayFavorites."
With another performance on its way, will Brooke be able to impress the audience with her second performance?
