It is possible, yeah. I wish the judges would just give another chance on the very same routine, instead of this "dance in your own genre" stuff, because not only does it not make any sense to make a contemporary dancer stay based off their contemporary skills when they're weak in ballroom, it's entirely possible they'll be doing the shtick they were accepted for during the auditions (maybe even due to what the producers told them to do).
Yes, me too. Hate it in figure skating, hate it in dance. I'd rather see someone dance with soul or fire and have slightly sloppy technique, than have perfect lines but bad emotion.
Yes, that's Gino. I think he's technically alright, but I agree he needs to mature. I will be fine with him making the top 10, but I'd rather someone better were pushed (as someone inevitably will be), rather than yet another technically sound, immature contemporary dancer, though. It'd be better if he were showing a great range of movement, or musicality, or creativity in his solos, because maturity and age are tied together somewhat, but his audition solo wasn't interesting either, IIRC, quite a generic contemporary solo.
I had to check my comments on Sumi. I remember her, but not what she did, and I was right that I hadn't found her routine the most interesting during the auditions. She seems technically very, very good, maybe won't be versatile, but I'll have her in the top 10 over several others, at least as long as someone else doesn't catch my eye next week. I didn't even remember Desi, though.
