Cody Simpson was sent home after the fifth week of Dancing with the Stars season 18.
Simpson performed a dance with Witney Carson to I Just Can’t Wait to be King from Disney’s (DIS) The Lion King. The duo earned a score of 34 out of 40 from the DWTS judges, but were still up for elimination. NeNe Leakes was also up for elimination with a score of 36. Drew Carey was safe this week, which was good for him as he only scored a 28, reports The Detroit Free Press.
A vote by DWTS viewers saved NeNe from elimination, which left judges with little choice but to eliminate Cody.
The crowd of DWTS booed as Cody’s elimination was announced by the judges. Carson said she was “sad” because people “didn’t really get a chance to see Cody yet,” The Detroit Free Press notes.
