'DWTS' Disney Night: Amanda Kloots scores 9s, fans say she deserves perfect 10s
Amanda Kloots may have impressed the judges with her 'Cruella' inspired performance, but it was not enough to land her 10s
As 'Dancing With The Stars' progresses, each celebrity is seen making their mark on the show, seeing that they are all bringing their A-game. But, while each of them gets better with every passing week, the competition, too gets tougher. And no one puts up a fight quite like co-host of 'The Talk', Amanda Kloots.
Kloots has consistently wowed the judges week after week with her strong performance. Her 'Disney Heroes Night' performance wasn't the best of the lot, but she has determined to own the dancefloor with her 'Disney Villans Night' show. She and pro Alan Bersten danced the Paso Doble to 'Call Me Cruella' from 'Cruella'.
Kloots was all set to bring out her inner Cruella, seeing that the character was so rooted in a fashion that it appleade to her. She also stated that her dance told a story, it was passionate and had a character of its own, and she was excited to see it come alive on stage. Decked out in Cruella's classic monotone, Kloots was excited to perform the Paso Doble, as it was her dream to do so. Having watched the show since Season 1, she always wanted to perform the dance on the 'DWTS' stage and it was now her grand chance.
Len Goodman called her performance a lovely interpretation, while Derek Hough stated that she played the part to perfection. However, Bruno Tonioli pointed out that there was a misstep in an otherwise near-perfect performance. Carrie Ann Inaba noted that Kloots' dance was a great way to end the show. The judges all scored her 9s, resulting in a total of 26 out of 40. Her grand total for the evening was 68 out of 80, which came as a surprise, seeing that Kloots is no longer a front runner on the show, having lost that spot to 'The Office' star, Melora Hardin.
Fans, however, felt as though Kloots explosive performance deserved a higher score and was worth 10s. "NO WAY THEY GAVE MELORA A TEN OVER AMANDA #DWTS" tweeted a fan. "Yeah Amanda was NOT having those 9's from the judges #DWTS #dwts30" added another. "Nah Amanda and Alan's paso gets a 10 from me! That was incredible #DWTS #DisneyNight" tweeted a fan.
