Would You Have Saved Charlie White on Dancing With the Stars?
Dancing With the Starsended with quite the shocker on Monday night when fan-favorite Charlie White was sent home during the semifinals. The Olympic ice dancer and his partner Sharna Burgess had solid scores headed into the semifinals, so their elimination at the end of the two-hour event was especially bittersweet.
We really thought Charlie was going to make it the the Finals, especially after his Foxtrot earned him a perfect score! And it turns out we weren’t alone. Wetpaint teamed up with Viggle LIVE! to ask Vigglers if they would have saved Charlie from elimination — and a whopping 61 percent said yes, while 39 percent agreed with America’s decision to send Charlie and Sharna packing.
We’re a little disappointed we’re not going to see what Sharna had up her sleeves for the Freestyle. Can you imagine all of spectacular lifts this pair could have done?
At least Charlie’s BFF and ice dancing partner Meryl Davis is still in the competition, along with fellow Olympian Amy Purdy. We’ll definitely be rooting for Team USA in the Finals!
What do you think, Wetpaint readers? Would you have saved Charlie from elimination so that he could have Samba’d another day in the ballroom? Sound off in the poll below!
No. It was his time to go.
Yes! He deserved to make it to the Finals.
Catch the finale of Dancing With the Stars on Monday, May 20 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
