I find trying to discuss aesthetics of the dance much more difficult, but I will try. I think sometimes a contestant can technically execute the steps, but perhaps the execution is not pleasing enough to the eye to influence the judge to give higher scores.Originally Posted by karalott;3885008;
Mel B and Laila danced well, but they also had flounce and flair when they danced which gave them a vibrancy and made them highly entertaining.
Erin is very tall and slender. She dances well, but there isn't much "bounce per ounce".
I personally don't think they are judging her strictly on the steps alone. I think that even if it is subconsciously, they are also judging her on the lack of flair, flounce, and entertainment that they want to see.
I think she is going to have to work very hard at exaggerating her movements as well as making sure her steps are accurate.
