TINA. UGH UGH UGH UGH UGH UGH. It wasn't even that she was doing the moves which was bad enough it was the way she was doing them so obnoxiously which made me cringe for Victoria - it's so obvious that VK has expected to be a DCC her entire life and this makes it so clear why.
Kat has improved massively, I feel like Meredith is still a huge dance risk tho.
