    I don't know if she got any face time at all- hope it doesn't hurt her in the voting.
    And I sing sometimes like my life is at stake because you're only as loud as the noises you make.

    For someone who has danced since she was preschooler, she's surprisingly unsteady on her feet. And I do agree with Mia's assessment last night that she looked too "dancing school." She's go the dance competition circuit thing down, but it detracts from her ability to get inside a piece and dance it from the inside out.

    If truth is relative, how do you know?

    I really like Shauna now! She won me over with her dance she did to "save her life."

    Too bad that she's partnered with Cedric. It's a little harsh, but Nigel was right: the guy is not good in partner work (unless the dance style is hip hop).

    Her solo came out of NOWHERE! I thought Jimmy totally outshone her on their two pieces so far, and I was underwhelmed with her hip-hop. But that solo totally made me aware of who she was and why she's in this competition. That was awesome!

    Her solo was amazing, but you notice that it was technical. Seems the choreographers don't want to put anything technical into the dances.

    So on one side they lambast her for being dance school trained and then on the other they appreciate the totally technical, dance school style solo. Go figure

    I think what tipped the scale in her favour last night wasn’t with regards to the technical/ non-technical issue. IMO, it was more about the feeling she projected.

    In her partnered dances she performed the steps well but it was more, like Nigel would put it, “dance by numbers.” Step right, lift arm, spin and jump! They could have made her do something else and it wouldn’t have made a difference to her.

    Last night seemed like her wakeup call. She was nervous, scared and I think she figured out that she actually wants to be in the competition and it showed. If she could just keep doing that; she could go really far.
    Hey, arrête de niaiser là! Donnes-moi mes bonbons puis fait ça vite là, j’t’ en retard sur ma run!
