Fans of Strictly Come Dancing are accusing contestant AJ Odudu and dance partner Kai Widdrington of cheating on Sunday night’s dance off.
The pair found themselves in the bottom two against Dan Walker and Nadiya Bychkova after scoring the second lowest score on Saturday’s show following an unfortunate mishap towards finishing their Salsa routine.
While the judges were impressed with AJ and Kai’s dance up until that point, they couldn’t forgive the ending, leaving the dance partners disheartened.
“You were totally watchable. Yes, the ending was a complete dance disaster darling but that can be fixed… one day. Well done anyway,” said Craig Revel Horwood, while Shirley Ballas added: "It was on its way to a ten, you are fantastic. It's just unfortunate.”
Fighting for their position on Strictly’s semi-final, AJ and Kai repeated their dance in the tense showdown on Sunday – with certain tweaks added, viewers seemed to notice on social media.
“Did AJ & Kai change the last lift?? It looked different from last night", questioned one person.
“Did anyone else notice that AJ and Kai did a different final lift? She didn't go over his head like she did when they flubbed it!", another quizzed.
Performing their routine for the first time, Strictly fans pointed out that, approaching their cartwheel lift, Kai lifted AJ up then put her down before she lifted her leg up again to attempt the failed move.
The second time the pair danced the Salsa, Kai lifted AJ for the cartwheel lift and then she danced away next to the stairs.
As more Strictly fans became convinced at the performance change, many voiced online how unfair they thought it that AJ and Kai were able to alter their routine considering the outcome of the dance off.
"#StrictlyComeDancing on that dance off Dan was much better it wasn’t fair that AJ changed the final lift!" One viewer said.
"AJ cheated on the lift…judges must of noticed but reasons known to them decided not to notice…shame on you,” wrote another.
Other fans of the BBC show believed that the dance only appeared tweaked as AJ was able to correctly pull off the lift the second time around.
"I am so glad AJ and Kai had a chance to clean up her dance and sort out the last lift mistake as the second dance was absolutely amazing,” one viewer commented.
“For everyone saying that AJ and Kai changed the lift. It is the same lift but he didn’t take her hand so she had to put her leg on his shoulder and they had to move on!”, another person added.
"Have a nice sleep when AJ and Kai are in semi-finals!"
