Hudson West got super-screwed on ‘Dancing with the Stars: Juniors’ [WATCH]

Week two of “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors” ended with a surprise: Hudson West, the Daytime Emmy nominated star of “General Hospital,” was eliminated in 10th place. That came after a superhero themed paso doble that he performed on a night when the kid celebs danced to songs released in the years they were born. And while the judges didn’t think it was the best performance of the night, they liked him better than a few of the contestants who stuck around. Do you think West got a raw deal? Watch his performance above, and vote in our poll below.

West was born in 2008 and danced to Madonna‘s hit from that year, “4 Minutes” featuring Justin Timberlake and Timbaland. Judge Val Chmerkovskiy thought West “killed it.” Mandy Moore “loved that … you were holding Kameron so strong. You embodied the character. I really enjoyed that performance.” And Adam Rippon was “so impressed. You guys look like a really great partnership. It’s so fun to watch,” though he advised West to “loosen up” more in order to take his performances to another level.

The routine received 7s from Chmerkovskiy and Rippon and an 8 from Moore, giving West a total of 22 out of 30. That was one of the better scores of the evening, just two points behind the night’s top scorers Miles Brown, Ariana Greenblatt and Mackenzie Ziegler. And he was tied with Mandla Morris and Sky Brown. But even though there were four performers who scored lower — Jason Maybaum (21), Akash Vukoti (21), Sophia Pippen (20) and Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson (19) — it was West who was sent home after the votes from the studio audience were factored in.

Was that fair? Or should the heroic West have gotten another chance to save the day?
