‘Absolutely Groundbreaking’: Drag Queen Scores High Praise on 'Dancing With the Stars'

My wife was told not to watch the Dancing With The Stars premiere back in early September. She should have listened to that advice.

D.J. “Shangela” Pierce, has graced the world with “her” presence on this season's DWTS. Shangela, a drag queen, received roaring reviews for her performance … for her status as a drag queen however not for the dancing itself.

The premise of a dancing show should be, well, dancing but this year the show focused more on the dramatics and less on the skill.

The premiere of this season featured Shangela with “her” partner, Gleb Savencho dancing to “When I Grow Up” by the Pussycat Dolls. Interesting song choice for a 40-year-old man who still plays dress-up.

The judges LOVED the performance and each scored the couple with a seven and used the show, which was streamed live on Disney+, to push the progressive narrative.

On the episode, Shangela said: “Out of drag, I’m pronouns he/him, and in drag, she/her.” Again, I thought we stopped playing dress-up by age ten.

Shangela’s partner, Savencho was thrilled to be dancing with another male. “I’m excited that I’m gonna be the first male pro dancing with another male celebrity partner,” he said. Though, I think he got the pronouns wrong. Honestly, I’m not sure.

After the performance, instead of talking about the dancing itself, the show host said “You are the first drag queen performer on this show and it is absolutely groundbreaking.” Meanwhile other celebrities and their partners including Jordan Sparks and Charli Damilio beamed and clapped for their Drag Queen competitor.

"It was so incredibly special because I think about all the queens that ever wanted to be in this space that never got the opportunity," Shangela told People after her performance. "Maybe by seeing me and seeing how (I) just showed up as [my] true authentic self tonight, and [was] accepted and cheered on, they know that they can do it, too."

I understand that TV shows need to dramatize storylines to keep people entertained, but this show is about dancing, not progressivism. Not to mention, DWTS switched over to air on Disney+ which is geared for younger people. Shangela doesn’t present as the best role model for kids to have.

On Instagram, the DWTS page commented “we want to be you.”

I think I speak for us all when I say, no, no we don’t.

On Twitter, other drag queens endorsed Shangela in the competition.

Our “girl”??? I am truly so confused.

Dancing With The Stars can choose to cast whoever it wants, but pushing it on a platform that is directed towards kids is disheartening. This is just another one of Disney’s attempts to attack our kids and the reviews indicate that is the goal.

The folk history of America
Is the history of it's heroes
Big workin' men like John Henry,
Paul Bunyon & Big Bad John

But today I'd like to introduce a new folk hero
He didn't work in a mine or on a railroad
Or any of those strenuous occupations
He worked in a beauty salon & his name was Bruce

Well at the beauty salon every morning at ten
Big Bruce arrived & kind of tip-toed in
He wore bell bottomed pants & a polka-dot tie
And whenever he spoke, it was just to say 'Hi'

Big Bruce
Big Bad Bruce

And everyone knew when he swished into town
You could smell his perfume for miles around
He stood six foot five, & weighed 106
With a curl in his hair & a smile on his lips

Big Bruce
Big Old Bruce

The boys all say he's from Abilene
Where he had a social group called
The Lone Star Queens
Some say Hollywood or Beverly Hills
Where he got arrested for passing
Three dollar bills

That's Bruce
Dumb Old Bruce

Then came the day of that terrible fire
Something went wrong in the number five dryer
Into the chaos of those matronly dames
Went Big Bad Bruce just a fannin' the flames

Big Bad Bruce
Big Bad Brucey Woosey

Well the flames grew higher & the fire got worse
And someone heard Brucey cry,
'Mercy I forgot my purse'
Into the fire with a squeal & a shout
We waited an hour, but he never came out

Poor Bruce
Poor Old Bruce

Where that salon once stood, there's a grocery store
But his name will live forever more
In the annals of time & the hall of fame
As the gay young cat who went down in flames

Big Bruce
