Dancing With The Stars Contestant Stands Up To The Show

Professional softball player Jennie Finch-Daigle told the show’s producer and then her partner that she couldn’t dance to Janelle Monáe’s song “Make Me Feel,” which is filled with suggestive lyrics and touches on bisexuality. It’s even been called a “bisexual anthem.”

“I’m not really sure about the song,” she told dance partner Keo Motsepe during a rehearsal broadcast on the May 7 episode. “It’s just not me.”

Motsepe told her to “just relax” and that he would “make it work.”

Viewers then heard a phone call between her and the producer in which she said, “I’m struggling with my song choice. It’s a little too risqué. I’m just not feeling comfortable with it. I can’t go through with it.”

She later told Motsepe, “I need to follow who I am and stand up for what I believe.”

Because of the change in songs, the two had only three days to prepare a new dance.
