The former Fifth Harmony member criticizes the ‘DWTS’ judges for saving her instead of James Van Der Beek during their times on the show, saying ‘it just did not make sense.’
AceShowbiz –Ally Brooke has confessed appearing on “Dancing With the Stars” “destroyed” her.
The 27-year-old singer appeared on the U.S. TV talent show in 2019 but her experience of the series was soured after the judges opted to save her instead of James Van Der Beek, who was still dealing with his wife’s pregnancy loss at the time.
“It was horrible. And especially the week he had the devastation of losing a baby. Him having the strength to still go on the show and perform and dance,” she said on “The Ally Brooke Show“.
“To me it just did not make sense. I’m like, ‘This does not make sense. There’s no way. I know America is rooting for him and voted for him.’ It was just a bunch of mixed emotions … He was the one to watch during the season because he always performed beautifully.”
Despite advancing to the next round, Ally wanted to quit the series at the time.
“I just remember after the show I wanted to quit. I want to give this to James. I don’t want to be here. I was done,” she continued. “It was such an emotional punching bag for me and then on top of that I got a lot of hate because the judges saved me.”
Ally admits the backlash reminded her of her time on “The X Factor“.
The singer – who joined Fifth Harmony after auditioning on the show – said, “You don’t understand how much that can destroy someone. That destroyed me and it took me back to the really bad space where I was after X Factor.”
“My audition aired and I got so much hate there and that tore me apart. And then also, brought back a lot of memories of getting online hate for like, you know, my body or my dancing in Fifth Harmony. I just felt like man, I can’t take this.”
