For me, because I studied dance for so many years, I really am much more drawn to and moved by good technique. I pretty much always root for the person I think is the best technical dancer. I think Melanie is definitely that person, but she's also got the personality that the voters tend to go for.
I think Sasha is good too, but in their duet last week, she really suffered by comparison to Melanie.
I like that we get to see lots of different styles of dance on this show, but that whacking (?) routine was painful to watch. I think that sometimes the dancers get penalized when they're saddled with these styles. Remember the Russian folk dance debacle?
