Amber Riley: Glee Co-stars Tweet Support After Her First DWTS Criticism

Up until now, Glee’s Amber Riley (Mercedes) has been this season’s darling of Dancing With The Stars. The 26-year-old crushed the competition during her first week, landing a near-record 27 points. During week two, she held strong with a 24-point jive.

Then came week 3. On Monday, September 30, Amber received her first real criticism of the season. Though judge Len Goodman said Amber’s Charleston was well done, both Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli said her footwork could have been sharper. Amber’s upper body was great, but her lower half lost a bit of energy. All in all, though, Amber still received a solid score of 24 out of 30.

The actress’ Glee co-stars were quick to show their support. Harry Shum Jr. (Mike), Darren Criss (Blaine), and Becca Tobin (Kitty) were all in the audience to cheer Amber on, but they weren’t the only ones watching. Plenty of other Glee stars watched Amber’s performance from home and they couldn’t stop tweeting about it.
