Simone Biles eliminated from DWTS despite two flawless scores

Posted May 17, 2017

Len Goodman to Normani Kordei: In the words of Len, no "faffing about". The twosome earned a score of 36 out of 40 for the performance.

David Ross & Lindsay Arnold showcased Foxtrot style on the track "You Make Me Feel So Young" by Michael Bublé, Chose By Julianne Hough. However, a little fiasco during last week's show may have jeopardized Simone's chances of winning.

Simone Biles was tearfully complaining to her pro dance partner Sasha Farber that she had been doing her "hardest" but the judges "keep saying no". It was a fun concept and Simone showed her sexier and tougher side.

Bruno Tonioli to Rashad Jennings: Smooth, flowing movements, building on the successes of his trio Argentine tango from last week.

The first dance was the Judges' Challenge, in which a DWTS judge worked with a star and performed a dance of their choosing, while in the second round, stars did a dance they hadn't done this season. "Beautiful." Len said that Simone's footwork in the jive was "sharp, precise", and Carrie Ann tearfully said that in the rumba, Simone "put it all on the dance floor". Len and Julianne loved the fluidity, though Len saw some amusing footwork. Rashad and Emma must do the sensuous, fluid rumba and Bruno wants to help Rashad with his "extremities"; specifically his giant man hands and size 14 feet. He got 38 points. Her second dance is a jazz routine. "That dance was outstanding", Julianne gushed, while Carrie Ann praised their teamwork.

After finally letting her guard down - and introducing her raunchy alter ego Zoe - Biles nailed a ideal score (before getting the boot, of course). The most upsetting part of the critique for Biles seemed to be the assessment that she wasn't doing enough in her dances to let her personality shine through. The former Major League Baseball player danced about his struggle making it into the pros. Carrie Ann dubbed it his best dance yet, and Len appreciated that he "worked harder, tried harder" than others in the competition. The dance displayed the hard emotions Simone experienced giving everything up to pursue her gymnastics dream.

Fellow judge Carrie Ann Inaba added: "You have this attractive smile and you are a megastar with your energy but once in a while, there's beauty without a smile". Simone got another flawless score. The others - more specifically Sasha and Simone and Emma and Rashad - aren't to be counted out though.
