        I think Jlo needs a bodyguard, because after eliminating Lauren with this dance I feel like the people in the comments are planning a *vicious* attack 😆 YOU BETTER WATCH OUT GIRL

                            If she didn't fall out of both of turns sequences, I think she would have gone through. Just compare the stability of her previous performances to this one. Her first turn especially was downright sloppy, and she was super flat footed on the second turn. Honestly other than the turns though I thought this was a SUPER strong performance. I agree with others here that she should have stuck to her strengths instead of trying get more emotional (which lets be real, she was GREAT emotionally before. JLo hated her duals performance because it wasn't sappy or cheesy. So annoying, especially when she was just OOZING confidence throughout that whole routine, which is just as hard as tapping into the sappy emotions! ugh, jlo.)

                                    Jlo and Ne-Yo NEED TO GO. They legit know nothing about different styles and different feelings of dance . NOT EVERYTHING IN DANCE IS SAD SAD , PAIN, HEARTBREAK. The Kings won for their POWER. So there’s a huge double standard when it comes to hip hop and contemporary. THE ONLY ONE WHO HAS A RIGHT TO JUDGE HERE JS DEREK . The other 2 judges should be fired for having double standards and being so favoring towards specific ways of dance instead of focusing on technique and diversity like the amazing DEREK. 😡fr hate their comments on all the amazing dancers . LIKE I WANT TO SEE YOU DO AT LEAST ONE OF THE STUNTS THEY DO. Only Derek can do them 🙌🏻. Uhhh

                                        Lauren and Eva Igo looked like they could be related in some way...they seem so similar in the way they dance. I would love for both of them to come back and do something together on stage.

                                          I know she is better than Ellie and Ava which made it to the Finals. Her technique is AMAZING HER STRENGTH AND MUSICALITY IS TOO GOOD AND SHE GOT A 96.0 in the previous round meaning she would have tied with Ellie and Ava at the Divisional Finals

                                            I understand that people love her and that she’s an amazing dancer but honestly the amount of points she got was fair, at the end of the day this is a competition and every single mistake you make deducts points. Even with that very obvious wobble on that turn she still got a 91 from Ne-yo which is in my opinion too high compared to the 87 briar nolet once received from him for her flawless fly with me routine

                                                I really wanna see Lauren dancing in so you think you can dance and winning it...She is a powerhouse externally and emotionally

                                                        I’ve only just found out that Lauren is Amy Yakima’s little sister! One of the winners from SYTYCD. Amy is one of my favourite dancers and I can see some of her style in this performance. I’m so sad Lauren has left the competition, she’s so good.

                                                          Honestly, I don’t think JLo can handle having another woman in the room that might be more beautiful or talented than she is. Lauren is only 17, but, sharing a stage doing what they do best, my eyes would go to Lauren. Go back and watch how J Lo acted during the duals. Even though Lauren got the highest score, I got the “oh no, b*tches gonna be b*tches” feeling and felt like J Lo would throw her under the bus at the earliest opportunity.

                                                            Feels like she is performing instead of dancing. She should stay herself, it lost the essential "her".....that is why she made so many mistakes, SHE wasn't feeling it and it showed. BE YOU and ONLY YOU. "They" aren't always right when they say change...

                                                              Well JoLo wanted her emotion so she delivered. All her acts were fantastic. Do your own thing!

                                                                  • Starry Joseph

                                                                      • Atharie Al Salem

They should phase the two singers out of the judging board, it just doesn’t fit and their comments are underwhelming. JLo always comments about emotion and here you can see derek mentions how he appreciated the ‘texture’ and neyo pointed out the texture as well but did not know this basic term so he said “I loved the thing that you did with the *motions*”. They are great singers and people but not suitable judges for this show, it should be dancers trained and who know what they’re talking about. Much love

Plus, she had some strong competition, those two sisters dedicated their dance to their grandpa with no wobble in their dance and it was perfectly executed. No need to hate on anybody... She got disqualified! What is done, is done so move on. Don’t @ me

Just because she made couple of mistakes on this one routine doesn't mean she should have been eliminated. Some of these episodes they should let the viewers decide. She wasn't perfect on this routine but she's been flawless all the other times. She was an all around star. That girl group and that other dancer didn't deserve to go thru. Nobody even knows their name!! They won't stand a chance against the other contestants. I hope they do some kind of wild card and put her back in. They knew she should still be in the competition. she should have just stuck to her own routine.
