Got Something to Add?
Having been a long DWTS fan I must confess that during the show there were a lot of questionable moments with the voting. not to take anything from Kelly ( I think she was awesome) However I think Zendaya was just as good. My granddaughter was very upset when Zendaya lost. But the one thing that bothered me was while trying to vote for Zendaya after two calls we would get a message stating that we had reached our voting limit!? :( I was under the impression that each contestant was allowed six votes per device. And this thing with the website being down (how convenient) so the votes were not allowed and I bet majority of the votes were for Zendaya! I am proud of the fact that Zendaya is the only Disney star that has ever made it to the final but I do not think that DWTS was going to let her win from the start because of her age.
Kellie did an outstanding job...just wish she had been with Val! I think Val and Maks bring a lot of personality to DWTS. Kellie and Zendaya definitely earned their places:)
good job Kellie, loved Zendaya though. she is very good for a 16 year old! but Kellie deserves it, she dances beautifully and in my humble opinion, she dances better than she sings :)
i havent watched this a whole lot this season but i really dont like that young one zandaya ....not even sure if thats her name but she seems to have a bit of arrogance goin on....kellie for the win
@ShirleyBrooks The conspiracy theories are ridiculous. ... The key words are "Disney star." You do realize that the Walt Disney Company owns ABC? If the show was going to be rigged, it would have been rigged for Zendaya. ... Finally, I'm sorry your granddaughter was upset, but you should make this a teachable moment for her. ... Is Zendaya going to quit dancing and leave her show just because she lost on DWTS? No. ... Did Zendaya get all huffy and start screaming at the judges and Brooke and Tom after she lost? No. ... Did she spout off about conspiracy theories in interviews and tweets? No. ... That's what you should point out to your granddaughter: That life is filled with ups and downs, and that regardless, you hold your head high and learn to be gracious both in victory and defeat.
@moogrosso @imackcountry @Mikhail XO Cheerleading? Not the same as formal dance training. Kellie went to North Stanly High in rural N.C. I doubt she had a professional dance teacher as a cheerleader instructor. ... Kellie was a flyer, the tiny one that gets tossed in the air a lot. Her primary skills were likely fearlessness and being a cute petite. I'm sure that fearlessness and cuteness helps a lot on DWTS, but I suspect dance lessons from a pro help more. ... Kellie's last "performance" as a cheerleader was nearly a decade ago. Any dance skills she might have learned were rusty. Zendaya danced every week on her show.
