'DWTS' Britney Week: Iman Shumpert gets low scores again, fans say 'judges are haters'
Iman Shumpert went all out for Britney Week and while the judges believe there is room for improvement, fans think otherwise
This week, on 'Dancing With The Stars' everyone is shaking a leg and busting out moves to hits by the princess of pop, Britney Spears. Seeing that it is Britney Week on the show, the stars are bringing the heat and energy in the hope of staying safe for another week.
NBA basketball star Iman Shumpert and pro Daniella Karagach danced the Tango to 'Piece of Me' by Britney Spears. Having had a rough start initially, Shumpert went into this performance determined to impress the judges.

Len Goodman noticed that Shumpert tried to improve his footwork. However, he still had a long way to go. But he did note that his feet are a long way from his heart and Shumpert puts his heart into each performance. Bruno Tonioli pointed out that he put up a nice, solid piece of Tango and noted that he did well. Carrie Ann Inaba had feedback for Karagach instead, seeing that their height difference was definitely a hindrance and that she needs to find a way to work around it. The judges scored Shumpert a total of 19 out of 30.
Fans, who have been Team Shumpert right from the start, were not impressed as they believed he should have gotten a better score. Scoring Shumpert low was starting to become a trend and none of the viewers were impressed. "Iman is just getting constantly underscored. His tango was honestly better than his rumba and he got higher scores for that last week. #dwts" tweeted a fan. "Iman didn't really come to play with us but these judges are HATERS #DWTS #BritneySpears" added another. "I'm convinced the judges just have something against Iman at this point. #DWTS" agreed a fan.

Fans were still in awe of Shumpert's initial jive performance and firmly believe that they were underscored back then as well. "Iman does better with fast dances. Despite the 4 he got his jive was actually really good. I don't think slow dances are really for him if I'm being honest. #DWTS" added a fan. "Iman still has yet to top his first dance (which was INCREDIBLE). The fact that a challenging dance like the Jive was his first and BEST dance so far is something #DWTS" agreed another.
