However, fans couldn't help but notice that the judges were inconsistent with feedback and criticism, especially when it came to Siwa and Cody Rigsby. "@carrieanninaba praises Matt for his “effort” for his arm being up. Jojo for being groundbreaking. Yet Cody gets penalized for having to dance by himself. Pathetic. #DWTS is just about the spectacle now, not actual dancing #FireCarrieAnn" tweeted a fan. "@carrieanninaba praises Matt for his “effort” for his arm being up. Jojo for being groundbreaking.

"Sooo they’re gonna judge Jojo harshly because she has prior dance experience, but not give Cody a break because he has covid, was on Skype, and danced alone?!? #DWTS" asked another.
