    I like Kherington! I love how she mentioned that she can get pretty aggressive on the soccer field and has been yellow-carded a number of times. She's spunky!

    I like her, so I'm very happy she made the top 20!

    And if people are having a hard time remembering who she is, she's the one whom Dom (from last season) couldn't take his eyes off of while doing her audition.

    In regards to Dom.....he was a huuuuuuuuge flirt last season, IMO, so it's no surprise he was staring at her the whole time. Although, personally, I find him creepy because that.

    I hated her the instant I saw her. She'll be popular, and make it far based on votes, but she's basically getting the David Archuleta treatment from American Idol.

    Re: Kherington Payne - SYTYCD 4

    Again ... not getting your point here. What do you mean when you say she's getting the Archuleta treatment? David was judge-drooled from the get-go. I didn't see any more positive (or negative...) commentary from the judges on her than anyone else. She was just one of the crowd as far as I could tell.

    I guess not so much judge-drooled, but producers-drooled (which kind of is judge drool... since Nigel is a producer). She's definitely being set up to be a favourite, by mere fact of screen-time. If she had any clue what the performance industry is like, I'd like to see that. Right now, just from her interviews, she seems rather amateurish. All her answers are things you would hear from an inexperienced performer (any of the performing arts). Compare her to William, and you see the difference. Kherington will be primmed to be a commercial queen, like how David is made to be the male-miley.

    I would love to be proven wrong by her, but as it stands, she seems like one of those naive "I want to be a star" girls I would love to push over a cliff when I walk into auditions.

    Odd. I didn't get that vibe at all from her. She said (and we only have the word of the contestants on this sort of thing anyway...) she'd been dancing all her life.

    Regarding screen time ... I guess this is a matter of perception. I think she got the RIGHT amount of screen time and am more upset that there are so many in this top 20 that we barely saw at all. We1 go into this week's show knowing NOTHING about the personalities of about 14 of the 20. I guess I see that not as overplaying KP (or the other 5 we saw) as much as screwing the viewer by UNDERplaying the other 14.
