Tyra Banks sever Jimmie Allen’s Tributes to His Grandmother


Dancing With the StarsSeason 30 is underway and two celebrities were eliminated in double elimination Monday night. Although it is always disappointing to see a pro dancer partner and a star leave the competition, this was a heartbreaking episode. Jimmie Allen, a country singer, and Emma Slater, a pro dancer, were sent home. Allen paid tribute to Bettie Snead in the last moments of the show. Tyra Banks interrupted him mid-sentence to cut him off.

“So people have been wondering what this scarf is,”Allen spoke after Banks left him to think about his final thoughts. “This scarf was my grandmom’s scarf. She always wore it. So every show, I wear it.”

Banks interrupted Allen before he could say more about his grandmother. “She’s here with us,”Promote the couples who have been evicted. Good Morning Americaappearance and ABC’s behind the scenes CMA special. It was seen as rude and unneeded, provoking backlash from viewers. 

Banks has been criticised for her poor time management during interludes throughout the season. Some suggested she should cut some filler asides rather than rush to the end of segments. In this case, Banks could not have attempted to call the night’s other eliminated couples, Valentin Chmerkovskiy (left) and Olivia Jade Giannulli (right), on stage when they were apparently far away from the main audience. She was clearly required to promote ABC’s shows. However, she could have realized that Allen was in an emotional tribute and just let it unfold. Others suggested that Banks might not return to the “Best Shot”singer if she didn’t intend to let him finish his thoughts.
