Subscribe To Dancing With The Stars Just Awarded Its Mirrorball Trophy And Twitter Is Pissed Updates
Well, Season 24 of Dancing With The Stars finally wrapped up tonight, and a new star now gets to take a mirrorball trophy home. Unfortunately, Twitter fans are up in arms over not so much who won, but who didn't win tonight. After a star-studded finale filled with performances from this season's pros and stars, and musical numbers from some of today's hottest acts, NFL running back Rashad Jennings and his partner Emma Slater were awarded the show's coveted top spot.
And, while fans didn't seem to be against Jennings in general, they were most certainly against the idea that competitor Normani Kordei and her pro partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy were only awarded a measly third place ranking. When that news was announced near the end of the two and a half hour finale, all Twitter hell broke loose. Like with this person, who was ready to fight:
And then there's this fan, who calmly reminded everyone (in ALL CAPS) that Normani and Val had the most perfect scores this season, while second place winners David Ross and Lindsay Arnold only had one perfect score for the season. The pair also had the lowest number of points from the judges among the three finalists, with 109.
There was a lot of talk of there being some sort of conspiracy afoot.
With a lot of people feeling like the show "used" Normani and her Fifth Harmony fanbase to get viewers, but with no intention of letting her win.
And while some Dancing With The Stars fans took time to try reminding everyone that viewer votes are what really decide who takes home the mirrorball trophy...
Others are still hoping that this was all just some huge misunderstanding:
