Phuong’s slow foxtrot was deemed “disappointing” and involving “too many unnecessary lifting” by Chi Anh, one of the judges.
“The music and their steps did not even match,” was his harsh verdict.
The model has stood out with her flamboyant and revealing outfits but failed to convince the judges and audiences with her dancing talent.
In the last three weeks she had fallen to the bottom two of the competition, and finally went out after getting only 32 points for her latest routines.
At the other end of the scale was singer Thu Minh who did justice to her four-year dance academy training with a passionate and compelling pasa doble routine.
Inspired from the movie “The mask of Zorro”, Minh’s performance earned her 38 points with two perfect 10’s.
Second was Thanh Thuy, the actress who, in the slow foxtrot routine, played the role of a blind girl based on a moving love story.
Her 37 points only reiterated the fact that she is Minh’s biggest rival for the title. Since the first night, the two have taken turns to lead the competition.
The rest of the contestants, singers Anh Khoa, Nguyen Vu, and Thuy Tien, and actor Dai Nghia were joint third with 34 points each.
Tien and her partner Petyo Stoyanov were voted the most favorite couple for a second time by nationwide audience.
Khoa, the rock star who was only saved from elimination by audience votes last week, returned with a pase doble routine that was praised “powerful and convincing”.
The show is getting increasingly closer and seems set for a rousing finish. Fasten your seat belts, folks!
