After an ‘honest’ critique of Shirley Ballas, Strictly fans are calling for Cynthia Erivo to replace her.

Fans and viewers of Strictly Come Dancing are pleading with Cynthia Erivo to stay on as a permanent judge after she provided candid feedback and scores, with some even suggesting she take Shirley Ballas’ place.

Fans of Strictly Come Dancing are pleading with Cynthia Erivo, a stand-in judge and West End star, to take Shirley Ballas’ place after she provided “honest” feedback and scores.

Cynthia took over for Craig Revel Horwood after he tested positive for Covid-19 earlier in the week, much to the delight of fans.

Some fans were even perplexed as to how the BBC was able to secure the star of the new Wicked film as a judge on the popular show.

Tom Fletcher and his professional partner Amy Dowden took to the stage to perform their Couple’s Choice dance to Les Misérables’ heartbreak anthem On My Own.

Tom became teary-eyed while discussing his dance, which he dedicated to his sister, Carrie Hope Fletcher, who performs on stage in the West End.

Fans were blown away by Tom and Amy’s dancing to the emotional, well-known song, but some of the judges were not.

Cynthia expressed her desire for Tom to show more heart and emotion.

Both Motsi and Shirley agreed that Tom needs to let go of his emotions like he did in the VT before their performance.

Cynthia, the stand-in judge, gave the couple an 8, while Motsi, Shirley, and Anton all gave them an 8.

Tom and Amy received a total of 31 points, with the majority of fans agreeing with Cynthia’s ‘honest’ criticism – though some thought it was too harsh.

“Cynthia proving that you can give a lower than an 8 if you truly believe the routine is lacking,” one fan wrote on Twitter.

This was also done by the others.

I’ve come for the more accurate marking.”

“Can we get rid of Shirley and have Cynthia for the rest of our lives?” someone else asked.

“Cynthia has been the fairest judge so far! I like the feedback and scoring!” wrote another.

“Cynthia telling Tom she didn’t buy the emotion, let her stay forever,” wrote a fourth.

“Honestly, can Cynthia stay every week forget Anton or Bruno, make Cynthia a judge,” a fifth said.
