For Britney Week, Moore and her partner Brandon Armstrong chose to perform the Tango to Spears’ “Womanizer.”

The judges gave Moore a total score of 21 out of 30, with each judge giving her a 7. Len Goodman said the dancing duo captured the flavor of the dance's form, but lacked body contact.

Bruno Tonioli described the performance as 'poised, elegant and chic'. Carrie Ann Inaba admired that Moore gave off "supermodel vibes" while performing.

Somehow, Moore still ended up in the bottom two and viewers are claiming that it’s racism. Moore was saved by Inaba and Tonioli, but the fact she made it to the bottom two illustrated a point that Black women never do well in the competition.

"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" tweeted a fan of the show," as reported by Meaww.

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.
