'Dancing With The Stars' Judges Slammed For Not Giving Kenya Moore A Higher Score

Kenya Moore is causing quite a stir once more, and this time, The Real Housewives of Atlanta peach isn’t leading the drama with her antics.

The now-divorced mother joined the cast of Dancing With The Stars season 30 to give her daughter “something to be proud of” and to let everyone know she is living her best life.

Moore and her Dancing With the Stars partner, Brandon Armstrong, performed the Foxtrot to Doja Cat’s “Kiss Me More” last week. This week the pair took on the Cha Cha to Donna Summer’s “Hot Stuff.”

Derek Hough was entertained by Moore’s performance. He also encouraged Moore to become more consistent in order to go further in the competition. Bruno Tonioli called Moore’s performance “simply irresistible.” Carrie Ann Inaba enjoyed the performance as well. However, she did highlight some technicalities, “pointing out that Moore could benefit from physically grounding herself a bit more.”

The general consensus was Moore’s performance was great. Fans gushed over social media singing praises to the former Miss USA. “Kenya is doing INCREDIBLE on #DWTS ! Every week she gets even better! The song, the stage, the outfits, and the dance/footwork was perfect! Couldn’t have done any better! @KenyaMoore” tweeted a fan page.

Other users weren’t too happy that Moore scores less than the other performers. She received a solid 6 across the board, bringing her combined score to a 24.

“Im only watching this season for Kenya Moore tbh. Her scores shoulda been higher tonight smh #DWTS” stated a viewer on Twitter. “What the hell is wrong with these judges? Kenya deserved 7s. #DWTS” asked a fan.

“There is no way @KenyaMoore deserved a lower score than that college admissions cheat girl. Kenya was shaking her hips and having fun. The judges’ scores were bullcrap… #DWTS #DWTS30” agreed another user.
