A shocking elimination on the April 14 episode left me shaking my head. I definitely disagree with who was sent home — see why I’m not happy with this season below.
In what I think was the second wrongful elimination of season 18, Cody Simpson, someone with incredible promise, was send home way too soon. Read why I’m so upset about it right here.
Cody Simpson On ‘DWTS’ — Sent Home Too Soon
Cody was just getting into his groove! He looked adorable dancing to “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” from The Lion King on Disney night.
Head judge Len Goodman told him: “I liked the energy. You really came out and sold that, well done.”
Even Carrie Ann Inaba was convinced! “Tonight, I felt the power of Cody!”
But perhaps guest judge Donny Osmond knew something before the rest of us — he commented that Cody seemed like he wasn’t having fun on the dance floor.
True, Cody did look like he was concentrating, but what’s wrong with that? It’s very hard for ballroom dances to come naturally and I don’t blame him for needing to focus!
According to the poll in my recap, you thought Cody’s dance was in the top 3 on the April 14 episode — so why was he sent home?
I don’t know what’s going on this season. In week two, hockey player Sean Avery was eliminated before Billy Dee Williams. Billy Dee had charm and charisma but could barely move on the dance floor because of his injuries and his age — 77.
Plus, with no notice, there was a double elimination. Things are crazy!
Who Should Have Gone Home
NeNe Leakes was acting very immature on the April 14 episode. Not only did she storm out of a practice early like a diva, but after she danced live, she was super emotional with no explanation. What’s going on with her?
Candace Cameron Bure seemed adorable at first but she also seems nervous and awkward when she dances. She’s too much in her own head.
But I really think Drew Carey should have gone home. He is consistently in the bottom and doesn’t seem to be improving much. His timing was way off last night and I’m just not feeling him as a performer.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Was it wrong Cody was eliminated?
