With Britney Week upon us, the star contestants of 'Dancing With The Stars' came to the dance floor with a whole lot of passion. Seeing that most of them are longtime fans of the singer, it was an honour for them to dance to her tracks. And, for many of them, they recounted that their inital journey was not too different from hers.

For Kenya Moore, both she and Spears are pageant girls and hence she knows the amount of discipline that goes into performing. This week, she and pro Brandon Armstrong danced the Tango to 'Womanizer' by Britney Spears.

'DWTS' Season 30: Cody Rigsby and Cheryl Burke will continue to perform virtually

Len Goodman pointed out that while the duo lacked body contact, they captured the flavor of the performance rather well.  Bruno Tonioli described her performance as 'poise, elegance and chic'. Carrie Ann Inaba loved the fact that Moore gave off 'supermodel vibes' with her performance. With all the judges scoring her 7, Moore had a total of 21 out of 30. 

However, despite this, Moore found herself in the bottom two, along with Christine Chu. Although Tonioli and Inaba decided to keep her safe, fans were livid that she was in that spot in the first place. They argued that Black women seldom do well on the show, even though they put up strong performances like Moore did. 

"The only reason a black woman has won the show before is because of their partner being Derek Hough, I fear it will never happen again & especially since the pro is black as well VOTE KENYA she can't go out anytime SOON! #dwts" stated a fan. "Just think about all the black women that should've won their seasons & didn't.. Mel B, Brandy, Mya, Zendaya, Normani, Tinashe, Tamar, just to name a few #dwts Kenya can very well win this season on her dancing but ya know, she's a black woman .. pick up the phone 4 her" agreed another. 

"They need to stop playing w/ @kenyamoore. They know Kenya is the star, people r watching for her, & it's suspenseful to have her being called late. If it's no particular order stop calling her late just stop! Give her the scores she deserves & stop playing w/ppl's emotions! #dwts" added another. 







Fans also argued that it shouldn't have been Moore or 'Bling Empire' Star Christine Chu in the bottom, but it should've been one of the men instead, stating that Brian Austin Green should've been the one to go home this week. "BAG & Matt need to be in the bottom, their horrible and being saved every week absolutely not! All the men should've been in the bottom before Kenya & that's real! #dwts" argued a fan. "Uhrm....the bottom two should have been like Brian and Iman with Brian going home...the fact queen Kenya was in the bottom two is so sick. Like literally vile. Y'all better vote for my good sis next week! #DWTS30 #DancingWiththeStars #DWTS" agreed a fan. "The fact Christine and Kenya were in the bottom two is pure racism and misogyny y'all rather vote for mediocre white men like Brian yet punish women of color with potential #DWTS" added another. "Kenya & Brandon and Christine & Pasha were *exactly* in the middle when it came to scoring. Yet they were the bottom two? Pfft. #DWTS" pointed out a user.
