Following the DWTS Semi-Finals, fans demand that voting and judging be revamped.


Following the DWTS Semi-Finals, fans have demanded that voting and judging be overhauled.

After Season 30 of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” some viewers are calling for changes, particularly in how the couple going home is determined.

The judges’ scores are currently combined with viewer votes to determine which couple is placed in the bottom two.

The judges, Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Derek Hough, then choose which of the two couples will be sent home and which will advance to the next round of the competition.

The system ensures that the “Dancing With the Stars” bottom performer is not always sent home.

Instead, it devolves into a popularity contest, with votes having such a significant impact on who gets to stay in the competition.

Fans believe that a better system exists.

One “Dancing With the Stars” viewer took to Reddit to express their dissatisfaction with the current system.

“Maybe they really need to make a change to this scoring and voting system,” one post reads.

“The couple with the lowest score is automatically placed in the bottom two each week.”

Whatever the lowest score is, it will go in the bottom two, and the other two will be the lowest scorevotes combined.

The judges can then decide whether or not to save one of them.”

“You could, on the other hand, give an immediate pass to the BEST score that week,” the article continues.

Keep the top two spots (Best and Worst) as a given based on dancing, and include scores in the rest.”

Many people supported the idea, but were concerned about the implications for the couple with the lowest score.

“I totally agree with such a system,” one comment reads. “However, if the lowest scorer is always in the bottom 2, the judges will 99percent of the time vote them off, so the lowest score is kind of like a guaranteed sentence.”

Some fans believe that the judging system should be altered.

Others took to Reddit to complain about Carrie Ann Inaba being the only judge who calls out lifts and docks a point for them, calling it “inconsistent.”

One person writes, “Sometimes she calls people out for it, and other times she doesn’t.”
