STRICTLY Come Dancing viewers have slammed the judges scores as Michelle Visage ended up bottom of the leaderboard and Karim Zeroual failed to get a perfect 40.
The BBC One dancing show headed to Blackpool this weekend, with all the couples pulling out the stops to impress the viewers and judges.
Michelle and her partner Giovanni Pernice performed a couple’s choice routine to Madonna’s classic track, Vogue.
The RuPaul’s Drag Race star emotionally spoke about how much Voguing and the LGBTQ+ community meant to her ahead of the routine, but after showing off some flawless moves, she scored 32.
While by no means a bad score, it still landed her at the bottom of the leaderboard, and viewers were not happy, especially after she was in the dance off last week.
Taking to Twitter, one angry fan wrote: “How is Michelle behind Chris and Saffron? She did fantastic tonight #strictly #scd19 #strictlycomedancing.
Another tweeted: “I’m sorry… but 8’s for Michelle and Giovanni!? Don’t have a street/ commercial section if the judges can’t appreciate it properly!? #strictly.”
A third added: “I don’t get the judges. They score Chris Ramsey higher than Michelle Visage.”
Michelle’s scores weren’t the only ones the viewers were angry with the judges about, as Karim Zeroual failed to get a perfect 40 for his energetic Charleston.
As the last celebrity to perform alongside pro partner Amy Dowden, viewers were convinced the judges were saving their 40 for him, and after an impressive routine, they thought the presenter had it in the bag.
