Dancing with the stars Fans called out the ballroom contest judges, saying Shangela and her dance partner Gleb Savchenko were underlined.
Ru Paul’s Drag Race other We are here Shangela, born Darius Jeremy Pierce, is a contestant on season 31 of the show, which stars Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Derek Hough on the panel.
On the October 10 episode of Dancing with the starswhich now streams on Disney+, Shangela and Savchenko performed a Charleston for Dig a little deeper from the Disney animated film The princess and the Frog.
The pair scored an eight from each of the judges, making their overall score a very respectable 32 out of 40.
Some viewers, however, were unhappy with the scores and thought Shangela and Savchenko were judged harshly and should have scored all nine like Gabby Windey and Val Chmerkovskiy, Wayne Bradey and Witney Carson, and Charli D’Amelio and Mark Ballas.
On Reddit, the Micronesian user posted: “Shangela is constantly underlined. They’ve had many celebrities in the past with flawed technique which they love because they have a good stage presence. Where’s that for Shangela ?
“She’s such a captivating performer, but they keep nitpicking over the smallest things with her. I need to see her get to freestyle!!”
Dancing with the stars fans shared similar posts on Twitter, with one writing, “Just rewatching #dwts and Shangela should have had all 9 like other couples tonight.”
‘I won’t stop being salty about Shangela’s fucking score #DWTS,’ added another, while a third posted: ‘The fact that Gabby and Heidi both got 9s with errors quite notable, but Shangela can play almost perfectly and not get a single 9?She’s grossly underlined at this point and I’m sick #DWTS.

“And then I jumped up and I was like ‘let’s go upstairs so we can talk to Alfonso Ribeiro’ because I’ve loved him since he was Carlton and then I was like ‘we’re going to have this baby, let’s- the “,” Shangela continued.
“So he turned to Gleb and said ‘Gleb, how you gonna turn the dial on Angela?’ and I was like ‘huh?'” before looking around the room and into the camera, confused.
