'DWTS' Season 30: Judges slammed for giving Kenya Moore 'bullcrap' scores
The judges' critique didn't quite match their scores and fans were outraged about the same
For Kenya Moore, this week on 'Dancing With The Stars' was all about her message of living her life to the fullest, besides being 50 years old and divorced. And, as a mother, she wanted nothing more than to make her daughter proud. And, after a stellar first performance, the expectations are high from the 'RHOA' star, seeing that she knows how to bring the heat!
Last week, Moore performed the Foxtrot to 'Kiss Me More' by Doja Cat ft. SZA, along with her pro-dancer partner, Brandon Armstrong. This week, she and her partner took on the Cha-Cha, performing to Donna Summer's 'Hot Stuff'.
Here's what the judges had to say about her Cha-Cha. Len Goodman pointed out that she had 'plenty gear in the rear' and used it to her advantage. Derek Hough enjoyed her performance and encouraged her to find consistency to go further in the competition. Bruno Tonioli defined her performance as simply irresistible. Carrie Ann Inaba was also a fan but did bring to light a few technicalities, pointing out that Moore could benefit from physically grounding herself a bit more. However, fans agreed that she put up a wonderful show in general.
"Kenya is doing INCREDIBLE on #DWTS ! Every week she gets even better! The song, the stage, the outfits, and the dance/footwork was perfect! Couldn't have done any better! @KenyaMoore " tweeted an enthusiastic fan page. "Kenya Moore has exceeded my expectations. We see you! #DWTS" agreed another.
But while some fans kept gushing over the 'RHOA' star, for others, it didn't sit too well that she scored less compared to other performers, seeing that they believed she put up a much better performance. With the judges scoring her a solid 6, resulting in a total of 24, Twitter was up in arms. "Judges did Kenya dirty on the scores. #DWTS" tweeted a fan.
"Im only watching this season for Kenya Moore tbh. Her scores shoulda been higher tonight smh #DWTS" added another. "What the hell is wrong with these judges? Kenya deserved 7s. #DWTS" asked a fan. "There is no way @KenyaMoore deserved a lower score than that college admissions cheat girl. Kenya was shaking her hips and having fun. The judges' scores were bullcrap... #DWTS #DWTS30" agreed a fan.
