I don't know why but, I want her to do better than she's doing... If she would just loosen up her body/movements she would be great. She seems to really want to be there, has great energy, sense of humor and a likability factor going for her.

I appreciate how hard she works and how much she wants this... it's just too bad that she's not lose enough to look comfortable on the dance floor.

I didn't get any of the steamy she was going for -- or was that 'tramp' ??

Even though she seemed to be loosening a bit, it was still underwhelming.
