Now on the other hand, one of the things that has impacted me negatively with any of the contestants throughout all of the seasons is to see the rehearsal clips where the contestants complain, "I just can't get this.....yada, yada...", and then they go out there on performance night and nail it like a pro.
I am sorry, but that irks me because it is so misleading.
If they are going to show me something in the editing of a rehearsal clip, I think it needs to be informative and impacting like we saw with Jake and Erin, etc. allowing the pros to do the leading and instructing. In other words, there was a bit of a power struggle going on, or the contestant was having trouble depending of the pro, and the dance was suffering for it.
That is not the same as the contestant is going to come out and not be able to do the dance when we see it.
The bottom line here to me is that they are using those edited rehearsal clips to influence the way that we think about the contestants which in turn will influence how we "chatter" about them and vote about them.
