With Shawn, I see a superb athlete, working out through dance.
With Kelly, I see a superb (IDK, I don't watch soaps) actress, acting like a dancer.
With Melissa, I see a superb dancer, dancing beautifully.
Melissa is just way more pleasing to my eye as a dancer than the other two. Her lines are beautiful and technically she's gifted. Tony has really given her some difficult choreography this season, and she's conquered all of it.
Shawn, bless her heart, no matter how technically proficient she is, just doesn't please my eye as a dancer. She's built like a gymnast and for me that takes away from enjoying her dancing. You can almost see her counting out the routines with her gymnast smile plastered on. Love her as a gymnast, though.
Kelly just isn't up to par in her dancing skills as the other two. I've seen her do some beautiful dances this season, but overall she doesn't measure up. And the fauxmance, showmance, romance whatever it is, doesn't interest me.
