James Maslow Fans: Dancing With the Stars is RIGGED!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

James Maslow fans are fuming over last night's Dancing With the Stars results show, claiming the vote tallies that led to the singer's departure are bogus.

Maslow got the chop despite not finishing with the lowest score from the judges. In fact, he bested Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas by several points.

Some fans are crying foul, citing a supposed glitch in fan voting might have cost James and his partner Peta Murgatroyd votes. See screen grab below:

Dancing With the Stars Rigged?

Facebook voting, in particular, has drawn the ire of fans.

Claiming votes for James and Peta were instead counted for Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, the Big Time Rush rocker's supporters are irate.

But a rep for ABC claims that despite this automated Facebook response, the votes were all counted and counted correctly. No conspiracies here.

According to TMZ, the show rep blew off the apparent voting error as a "caching anomaly" that only affected a small amount of users Monday night.

James and Peta got positive feedback. I don't understand, even Len Goodman had said something nice, shocker to me since he's been tough all season. BTW 2 of the 3 couples I picked made it. Those 2 ended up in 1st & 2nd. As Meatloaf would say "two out of three ain't bad". I'm happy for Meryl and Amy.

Correct me if I'm wrong but did'nt James & Peta get called back to do freestyle, James' moves were totally awesome. James if you can read this please go for it next year. BTW Amy's dance during I'm only Human on the rope took my breath away. Congrads to Meryl and Maks, I knew either Amy or her would end up in the top 3. James you should have gotten in the top 3.

My question is how could James be eliminated when he scored higher than Candace who got 8's. James & Peta got 10's. No fair.!

Remember the Palin gal? How did she get to the finale? She was taken into consideration that she had no dancing experience - so she went all through the session. Was her dancing any better than Amy's
I don't think so!!!! So I am for Amy 100%/ Without the experience she did a fantastic +++++ job.

A lot of past winners have been involved in sports, or shows of some kind, so it is no different this season. It is that folks at the bottom of the score board have been sent home, it does seem funny. Candace should not way be the winner, she has done nothing and has not received high enough scores to receive that mirrorball. As for Amy, she is a go getter but again she has not danced Meryl, dance she has but she should not get the mirrorball on sympathy. Meryl and Max have take the country by storm with their connection whether it be friendship or romance, it is beautiful and it has worked for them, if they do not win, I and several of my friends will not watch next season. Oh yea, we would not blame Max if he told DWTS to go to hell!!!!!

This is funny. People actually think that "reality" shows are real. Get with the program, people! There's very little reality in "reality" shows. Storage Wars where tons of people stand at the auctions, but it's always only the same few people who bid on them (uh huh, yeah, right). Dancing With The Stars where it doesn't matter how well you dance (but it's supposed to); it only matters how popular you are with fans. House Hunters where the people hunting for houses already own the house they buy on the show. And the list for the scams goes on and on.

Wah Wah Wah, PEOPLE. Everyone whines the same old tune when their favorite get eliminated. What ISN'T FAIR, is they don't choose contestants with the same experience. They pit professionals or stars with former dance training or Olympic stars to compete against people without those advantages. If ya don't like it, STOP WATCHING! Nimrods!
