I don't think I would have scored her as high. She was good with her feet and moves but the moves looked so hard and sharp to me.

It is probably just me because I see some of the professional dancers dance hard and jerky too.

I liked her personality and enthusiasm.

Marty, I wouldn't have scored her performance as high either. Not to say she wasn't good but I thought she looked a little forced and stiff in her movement. Perhaps she'll grow on me. She'll have to really work on smoothing out her style next week in her ballroom dance routine.

Hmmm, I guess she didn't progress that much after all.

Juv. . . you know better than to expect an outcome based on her dancing alone. Progressing is just some crap the judges throw out when they have nothing else to say. Helio progressed downward last week, should he have gone? Marie & Jane both got their lowest scores and their worst critiques this week. I know you don't like Sabrina but you can't really think she deserved to go this week.

First of all, I don't dislike her, she's just a little girl on a Dance show. Of course, based on dancing ability alone she was the best, no question. There's also a reason for that. I'm just glad she's gone because now it evens the field for everyone else. As I posted elsewhere, either Jane or Marie should have gone this week, based on dancing alone.

Watching her dance on her comeback performance she still seemed to be such a HARD dancer. She is good and talented but I prefer the softer movements then her jerky hard ones.

IMO
