    I’ve watched this about 1000000 times and she wobbled just on that ONE pirouette
    And there acting like it was her whole performance. She deserved better

          Why is this exactly how my English stories for school are critiqued?

            The Yakima sisters are such beautiful dancers!

                I wonder what studio she goes to because I live in Northville, MI too

                    Sure she bobbled one turn but she’s still easily the best in her division. She should not have been eliminated

                      What's the background song at the time the scores are shown!?

                        That was beautiful. The choreography was so good.

                          Wat a waste on such a beautiful song. Just like all her other dances, her movements are just very...abrupt? If that makes any sense? Always tense, never takes her time, shows no vulnerability when the song would suggest so. It’s not very smooth and it’s messy. I would’ve loved to see briar nolet dance to this song.

                            Emotion IS important in dance, but Derek pointed out the wobbles, and he’s right. I don’t think the emotion was what killed her chances.

                                        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.)

                                                              Lauren is actually Amy's sister aka sytycd female winner and she's as good as her

                                                                cute, but not as talented as her older sister.

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

                                                                      • NATTY

                                                                        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

                                                                        • Weronika Lupikasza

                                                                          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

                                                                          • Sarsha Angel

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.

                                                                                      • Lisa Stiles

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.

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...

Is she trying to keep the worst ones around? I’m done w WOD after this season. The judging (with the exception of Derek) is trash.
