'DWTS' Disney Night: Kenya Moore repeatedly underscored, fans cry foul
Despite having gotten primarily positive feedback, the judges scored Kenya Moore 29 out of 40
With each passing week, the number of contestants on 'Dancing With The Stars' gets slimmer as the competition gets tougher. Of course, stars have to bring their A-game to the dance floor, but ultimately, the deciding factor of if they stay or not is in the hands of the audience. With everyone's eyes on the mirrorball trophy, it's clear to see that the celebrities this season are going all out on the dance floor.
After having been in the bottom two, this week, she and pro Brandon Armstrong dancing Contemporary to 'How Far I'll Go' from 'Moana'. For Moore, this performance was dedicated to her daughter, Brooklyn, who was nothing short of a miracle. With doctors informing her that she only had a 5% chance of getting pregnant, her daughter was a blessing. Through this performance, she wanted her daughter to know that she could achieve anything and hopes to be her example.

Len Goodman said Moore put up a first-class performance, while Bruno Tonioli noted that he felt all the emotion Moore put into the dance. Carrie Ann Inaba pointed out that this was the most she'd seen Moore open up on the dance floor, and even though there were two missteps, the judges wrote it off as Armstrong's errors, which he willingly admitted. Even Derek Hough was off the same opinion but praised Moore's performance nonetheless.
Despite having gotten primarily positive feedback, the judges scored Moore 29 out of 40. Fans were thoroughly annoyed, the say the least, as they argued that this had become a running trend with Moore and the judges, where their feedback seldom matched their final scores. "They're really judging Kenya more harshly than these other rhythmless folks on this show, and I'm not here for it. #DWTS" tweeted a fan. "Every week the judges praise Kenya on how she's improving, but then give her 7's…make it make sense smh #dwts #kenya" added another.
"Seriously the judges are so hard on Cody and Kenya! Like who did they piss off to get the tough judges #dwts" asked a fan. "The way #DWTS is underscoring Kenya Moore… this is a civil rights issue" stated a fan. "Did you see how they praised Kenya, then gave her 7's smh. I'm just about done with #DWTS bad enough I have to deal with Ms.Tyra, but the judges tonight got me piss off!!! #DWTS" added another.
