Shangela is breaking ground on Dancing With The Stars season 31. With her entertaining personality and superb dance ability, she deserves to win.
Dancing With The Stars season 31 contestant Shangela has been dazzling the audience with her exceptional dance technique and her genuine personality, and she deserves to win the competition. The RuPaul’s Drag Race superstar is partnered with Gleb Savchenko, and she’s breaking ground as the first drag performer ever to compete on DWTS. Although Shangela grew up watching the show, she has no formal dance training.
On DWTS season 31, Shangela is making history. She impressed judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, Derek Hough, and Bruno Tonioli from week 1. During her first dance, Shangela performed a salsa with Gleb to “When I Grow Up,” earning 28 points out of 40, and placed third. On the more recent Halloween episode, she and Gleb earned their first perfect score for their jazz routine to “Look What You Made Me Do” and were at the top of the leaderboard, proving they could very easily walk away with the top prize.
Shangela Is A Terrific Dancer Who Supports Her Fellow DWTS Contestants
Shangela has been a joy to watch on DWTS season 31. She is not only a fantastic dancer, but she has an infectiously positive personality, which lights up the ballroom. The DWTS contestant encourages people to be unapologetically who they are and is an inspiration. After each DWTS season 31 elimination, Shangela writes a detailed Instagram post to the couple who exited the competition. She is a supportive contestant, who sees and brings out the best in every one of her fellow DWTS competitors.
Shangela Stands Out From Other DWTS Contestants
Shangela also brings an entertainment value that few other Dancing With The Stars season 31 contestants are capable of. On Most Memorable Year Night, Shangela showed her vulnerability in her emotional Foxtrot to an acoustic version of “Roar,” by Katy Perry. This was her recovery song when she broke her leg in 2013. When Shangela finished dancing with Gleb, she burst into tears and hugged her mother who was watching in the DWTS audience.

Shangela Brings Humor To Dancing With The Stars
Shangela also brings a lot of humor to Dancing With The Stars. After her tango to “Hollywood” on DWTS‘ Michael Bublé Night, Len said that it was her best dance of the season. Since Len told Shangela her legs needed to be crisper during her dances, she asked him if her legs were “crispy.” She served him some crispy fried chicken that she was hiding in her dress throughout the dance. Shangela then gave a piece of fried chicken to Tyra, which she immediately ate, to the delight of the audience and fans.
Shangela is a unique entertainer, who is forging a path on Dancing With The Stars that will open doors for others to join the show in the future. She is not only a wonderful dancer but a genuinely good person. Shangela has created many funny and memorable moments on DWTS season 31 and has the perfect combination of qualities to win the Mirrorball Trophy.
