'The World's Best': Dimash Kudaibergen's fans say judges were too harsh on him after he decided to quit
'The World's Best' has officially wrapped up its first season after they crowned Lydian Nadhaswaram as the title winner. Ever since it first premiered in February, the series has featured some impeccable talent that left judges and viewers awestruck.
Though the entire competition went on without a glitch, there was one particular contestant who shocked the judges with his decision to quit the show just before the final. Fan favorite Dimash Kudaibergen, the frontrunner of the show since day one, revealed that he decided to quit the show during the championship round because he did not want to compete against Daneliya Tuleshova, 12, and Lydian Nadhaswaram, 13.

This decision of his left the judges appalled and they did not support him. The judges argued that he knew what he was getting into when he agreed to join the competition. Faith Hill urged him to rethink his decision revealing that she felt he didn't have the right to make that decision. RuPaul Charles stated that Kudaibergen was being disrespectful for leaving the competition in the end.
The judges' remarks on Kudaibergen's decision to quit left his fans shocked with many believing that they were too rude to him.

"I find RuPaul's comment very disrespectful. Besides, nobody knew what they were getting themselves into. You just don't make adults and children compete against each other. The Voice has a separate show for the kids, and that's how it should be! Dimash is truly the #WorldsBest :)," wrote a fan.
Another added, "No, the way the judges reacted was ridiculous and I believe that if he feels wrong going against two children then he should have the right to back down after leaving what he has on the stage."
"Watching #TWBDimash withdraw from the competition to give the children a more level platform was one of the greatest acts of integrity ever witnessed on network television. I will never forget it. @RuPaul, I found your behavior very disappointing. I won't forget that either," wrote another.
Kudaibergen's decision to quit the show was supported by his fans and viewers all over the world.
