LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Shangela and Gleb Savchenko shocked everyone with their performance in the 'Dancing with the Stars' Season 31 freestyle round in the finale episode. The star opened her performance, coming out of the box and saying, "I started from the bottom but now I have arrived. I am Shangela." The silver curtain dropped, showing Shangela dressed up in a pink shimmery dress making her move.

Well, the shocking part of the jive was when Gleb, dressed up as a drag queen, was introduced as 'Nastasha.' The couple stunned the live audience as well as the judges with their quirky moves. In the middle of the performance, Shangela moved toward Len Goodman with one of his hands inside the bra, bringing out the chicken leg. Shangela said, "Mr. Len, did you say you wanna crispy legs." Shangela then threw the chicken leg at Len's desk and moved toward the stage to jive. All the backstage dancers in Shangela and Gleb's performance were dressed as drag queens, therefore, paying tribute to all the ones out there in the world. However, it seems that Shangela's performance and Gleb's dress up as Natasha disappointed fans. They called the couple's performance 'disgusting' and 'gross.'

A fan tweeted, "Disgusting and gross.... Drag queen garbage shouldn’t be on family shows..." Another claimed Shangela and Gleb's performance to not be on the point. "I dont know if I was just so focused on @itsSHANGELA but I feel like she hardly Danced with @Gleb_Savchenko aka Natasha during the freestyle. And isn't that a big no no?" wrote the fan. After seeing Gleb dressed as Natasha and Shangela throwing chicken, a fan tweeted, "b**ch I’m speechless @itsSHANGELA and @Gleb_Savchenko f**king DID THAT!" Another fan joked, "@itsSHANGELA came out with chicken was spot on for the finale." 






Moreover, some fans even took to 'DWTS' official Facebook page to slam the couple and their performance. "This was just gross and disturbing. Glad to at least see him go and in 4th. Lord thank you," wrote a fan. Another commented, "I like Shangela… but that wasn’t their best performance… it was all flare and no substance." Furthermore, a fan claimed, "I was here for the drag show but i thought there wasn't enough dance content. I love Natasha though!" A fan slammed, "Absolutely the stupidest "so called dance" on dwts! THAT WAS NOT DANCING!!!!" "That was a new low for dwts. What a disappointment this show has become," wrote a fan.


Even though there were some fans backlashing Shangela and Gleb's performance, there were more fans who were cheering the couple. A fan clapped back to all the slammings, saying, "If this makes you uncomfortable. YOU are the problem…"

With 'Dancing with the Stars' Season 31 concluding fans are now waiting for Season 32. The upcoming season of the show has been renewed but let us further wait for the show to announce officially about the future season's release.
