    Everytime they get ready to say "needs EMOTIONS" i get so pissed off, that was an AMAZING PREFORMANCE, and she at plenty of ENERGY AND EMOTION. CONFIDENCE IS A FEELING AND IT COURSES THROUGH YOU. fuvk wrong wit y'all? I've been dancing for 15 years, this pulled me through the screen.

      This was unbelievable on so many levels, the incredible performance and Jlo’s comment amount about lacking emotion. Wtf

              Not every dance needs to a therapy session, JLo. Christ.

                            JLo was wrong, she did Russian switch leap and one jump. Stop saying the entire dance was jumping and tricks

                              Why are the tappers so confident they can just tap their feet she can do freakin flips and splits.

                              Tap is dead

                                So freaking good!!! She should have stayed on that show instead of being eliminated. Hope she comes back next season

                                  Something emotional? Excuse me but the confidence that she showed WAS A DAMN EMOTION
                                  She was perfect what the heck—

                                          I really think that Jlo shouldn’t be a judge because she sucks. All she talks about is emotion and telling a story but can she even do that herself. Plus the dancer was oozing with confidence and that’s an emotion that the whole audience even people watching at home can feel.

                                                I’m sorry but after watching briar nolet u can see she struggles and ik it’s not easy but her transitions aren’t smooth. And there’s kinda that stuck up look on face the whole time when she can at least look fierce for the dance since the song doesn’t match the dance at all.

                                                  Loved how the two blonde girls at the start were "yeah, yeah, you don't scare us, we can do it just as good, come on give it to us, gurl"
                                                  And then they clapped so happily and satisfied by her talent

                                                          I was so unimpressed. I didn't feel amazed. I will admit it had some moves that I enjoyed but I was bored. She was also incredibly cocky that wasn't confidence in my eyes.

                                                            She was great though. I know that this takes an incredible amount of hard work so I appreciate it.

                                                                                            I agree with JLo. She was pretty much just saying that here and there add different techniques to such as emotion. Doesn't necessarily have to be throughout the entire dance, but there are different elements to dance that truly makes someone the winning competitor
