For Season 28, Brandon teamed up with legendary singer and The Supremes founding member Mary Wilson.
The first episode, “2019 Season Premiere,” saw the duo deliver an impeccable foxtrot routine. The performance earned Brandon some raving reviews, with many praising his ability to come up with simple, sophisticated, yet spectacular choreography for his partner.
For the second week, the couple opted for a cha-cha number, which, unfortunately, earned mixed reviews. Although Mary was praised for her stage presence and gravitas, the judges felt that her technique could have done with some polishing.
The couple was the first to be eliminated from Season 28, and some viewers were not happy.
“Mary and Brandon deserved better #DWTS,” tweeted a fan.
“Justice for Mary and Brandon simple as that #dwts,” wrote somebody else.
As to Season 29? According to a rumor, Brandon is going to partner up with television host Jeannie Mai. However, this is all quite unconfirmed at this stage.
