During the sixth week of performances on Dancing with the Stars, the four remaining female celebrities (Simone Biles, Nancy Kerrigan, Normani Kordai, and Heather Morris) had a dance-off with the four remaining male celebrities (MLB World Series winner David Ross, NFL player Rashad Jennings, Bachelor Nick Viall, bull rider Bonner Bolton). But the celebrities also performed, as usual, with their individual professional dance partners. Heather Morris danced a rumba with her partner Maks Chmerkovskiy, and received a perfect score — four 10s. When the scores were revealed, a very calm Heather smiles and gave high fives to Maks who was jumping up and down. Morris has to go on record as the least exuberant receiver of a perfect score in DWTS history. Did she suspect what was coming, despite her brilliant swan song rumba?
When DWTS host Tom Bergeron announced that Heather and Maks were eliminated and the crowd disliked the choice, he said: “I have to say, in 24 seasons, that’s probably the most vocally unhappy reaction we’ve gotten about a result.” And the angry audience continues to roar on social media. Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays at 8pm on ABC.

So you beg Heather to come on the show twice, under score her, give her shitty spots and then eliminate her. Well played @DancingABC
