SPOILER WARNING: Spoilers for “Dancing With the Stars” Season 31 Episode 8 “Halloween Night” are below. Don’t read any further if you don’t want the episode spoiled.
In the team dances, Shangela and Gleb Savchenko were at the top of the rankings, and Vinny Guadagnino and Koko Iwasaki were at the bottom. They were both on the lowest-scoring team, meaning they didn’t add as many extra points to their totals.
After the team dances, Trevor Donovan and Emma Slater, as well as Charli D’Amelio and Mark Ballas, were at the top of the leaderboard, and Guadagnino and Iwasaki were still at the bottom.
Ultimately, the last two of the week were Jordin Sparks and Brandon Armstrong, and Heidi D’Amelio and Artem Chigvintsev, and the judges chose to save D’Amelio and Chigvintsev, sending Sparks and Armstrong home.
Sparks called the experience “life-changing” after receiving a standing ovation from the crowd. She vowed to dance more and thanked Armstrong for his help throughout the competition.
However, some fans weren’t happy with how it all turned out.
Fans think Vinny Guadagnino should have been sent home
Following the elimination, fans quickly took to social media to share their thoughts on which pair should have gone home, with many people specifically calling out Vinny Guadagnino.
“I love Vinny, but it’s time to go. Koko cannot choreograph. Jordan didn’t deserve to go home tonight,” one person said commented on Reddit.
A tweet from reads a confused fan“who keeps voting for vinny- #dwts.”
Some people were upset with Goodman for deciding to save D’Amelio over Sparks.
“I hate this voting system because either way, Lens’ vote is the only one that counts??? Like it doesn’t make sense to me,” one person wrote on Reddit.
One person tweeted, “Jordin was a strong candidate throughout the competition. Heidi had low scores and has now been in the last two TWICE. How was she saved because of Jordin?”
Fans have been demanding Guadagnino’s departure for weeks.
A person explained that the elimination “ruined Halloween.”
What dances were performed by the bottom two on Dancing With the Stars Halloween night?
For their final dance, Armstrong and Sparks tangoed to “Oogie Boogie’s Song” from the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Goodman praised the performance, calling it Sparks’ best performance yet, and they received a score of 36 out of 40 from the three judges.
D’Amelio and Chigvintsev performed the tango to “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE”. They were praised by Derek Hough, who called the performance her “best dance,” though Carrie Ann Inaba disagreed.
They earned a total of 37 out of 40 from the judges.
Both couples were on Team Wicked, which scored fewer points in the team dance than their counterpart Team Scream, pushing them further down the leaderboard as they entered the team dances.
