“I wouldn’t say it’s broken me but it’s hard”: Jett Kenny breaks down on Dancing With The Stars

“I wouldn’t say it’s broken me but it’s hard”: Jett Kenny breaks down on Dancing With The Stars

Jett Kenny had a less than stellar performance on Dancing with The Stars, with renowned harsh judge Craig Horwood saying it was “a mess and you need to be hard on yourself".

Kenny knew his dance on March 4 was a mess, admitting: “Last week, I think it was the second step and I slipped on something, lost balance on something else, I was just falling apart.”

The other judges were positive, but Horwood wasn’t having any of it.

“I think it was a mess.”

“I get told I am too hard on myself, and it's just sort of the way I've been my entire life,” Kenny revealed before he broke down in tears.

Angrily wiping them away, Kenny then agreed, saying, “I didn’t think it would be emotionally difficult.

“I wouldn’t say it’s broken me in a way, but it’s hard. It’s hard.”

Kenny also addressed the mistakes in an emotional Instagram post, saying that “the snowball effect of small mistakes really showed and defeated me last night”.

This was the point of my routine where I thought I could reset and start again. The snowball effect of small mistakes really showed and defeated me last night. I’m sorry for those who had to witness it, especially @lilycornish who had to feel it happening then and there. I was supposed to be her frame and her my picture, but that wasn’t to be last night. Thankyou everyone for all your support, messages and especially the votes. Every vote clearly counts and I thankyou all so much. You have given me an opportunity to come back and give it another crack next week where I can hopefully prove that I deserve to be there. I’m super excited to not only be dancing for Lily next week, but also for @jessscolllins Looking forward to resetting and getting ready for a big few days of training before we go back and do it all again. 🕺🏼🌻💃🏽 Also, apologies to @craigrevel , @sharnaburgess and @tristanmacmanus for having to experience my pancake ass up-close and personal.

However, after some supportive words from his dancing partner Lily Cornish, who said that she’s “really proud” of his efforts, Kenny bounced back from the missteps with confidence for latin night on Dancing With The Stars this week.

The duo even gained praise from the judge who criticised them the previous week.

“I did like it!” Horwood said with a smile.
