The latest episode of Dancing with the Stars season 31 had the theme of ’90s Night’. This was peculiar from the last episodes as we got to see eight contestants jive on various songs. There was also a dance relay that took place.
This relay was conducted on the songs of the guests Salt-N-Pepa, En Vogue, Vanilla Ice, and Kid ‘n Play. The dance relay saw Gabby Windey and Charli D’Amelio as the winners. Derek Hough, the panelist also gave his vote to Charli which made her the top contestant on the judges’ leaderboard.
Fans called him out as he seemed to have shown “favoritism” towards Charli. They claimed that the decision was “rigged” and many even took to Twitter to express this. Many viewers also called Derek out for supporting her as they have a relationship outside of this show too.
Both Derek and Charli know each other from ‘Step Into…The Movies”. They had recreated the ‘Dirty Dancing’ moment together and fans have now claimed this connection might have been affecting Derek’s decisions. Users online slammed Derek and claimed that the entire thing is “rigged”.
Dancing with the Stars Season 31 will be back with new episodes every Monday and Tuesday.
