Dancing with the Stars' Wayne Brady defends prom night performance after fan criticism

Dancing with the Stars hopeful Wayne Brady has defended his prom week choreography after it was suggested he had not offered a traditional samba. 

Wayne wowed the judges with the performance to Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock's It Takes Two which was released in 1988; Wayne graduated the following year. 0 seconds of 1 minute, 17 secondsVolume 90%

However on Instagram one fan criticized the choice by Wayne's professional partner Witney Carson for incorporating hip hop moves into the samba routine

to which another praised the performance and shared that the beauty of dance was that anyone could add their own styles.  

Wayne agreed, writing: "Thank you! Plus, it was my prom from 89. I hope that answers your question."

Wayne and Witney have found themselves tied for the top spot in recent weeks along with Charli D'Amelio and Mark Ballas, and Gabby Windey and Val Chmerkovskiy.

On Monday Wayne received a standing ovation from Len Goodman for his performance and on Tuesday, after the samba, he received the top score of 40 out of 40, along with Gabby.

However there was heartbreak for Joseph Baena as the young man was eliminated, despite never having scored in the bottom before.
