Draw your own conclusions, I guess. I THINK what you are saying is, she should've won because she got the votes. What I am saying is the show (starting with auditions) did a lot of manipulation with her partner shouldering the outside styles or choreographers creating an enormous amount of the routines to hide her, etc. Then followed it up with OTT praise for Mel and needless criticism for her close rivals. All was to convince the voters that she WAS super versatile. That's how she became a sytycd fan favorite. Granted, the show always has preferred winners like Lex on last season. He wasn't everyone's choice but they knew he was versatile. Look how they manipulated for Kiki last season. He wasn't versatile but the show made sure Lex got an equal amount of praise to keep Kiki from winning. Had they thrown Lex and the others under the bus enough times but constantly praised Kiki, he probably would've won. Because of the requirement to be versatile, a lot of us feel Mel didn't reach this criterion. But she was a great contemporary dancer. Edited August 13, 2018 by crossover 3 Link to comment
