Author: It would be interesting
Subject: With a panel of 5 at AI's, all 5 judges gave their 100 to 5 different kids. If the high and low were thrown out, 3 of these dancers would not have been in the top 5. Throwing out the scores in many cases will dramatically change the resutls.
In reply to: Dudley 's message, "True, it isn't supposed to be about the judges' feelings. By the same token, at the Worlds level, most of the dancers are pretty spectacular. The difficulty is choosing the absolute best of the best out of 100 or so dancers. I guess it all boils down to what each judge is looking for, and what they personally see as "spectacular." Perhaps the idea behind a set panel is consistency: the judges are able to view dancers' performances in each round and then identify the competitor that they feel is the best all-round dancer. Maybe the thinking is that, at this level, no dancer should be dancing a "bad round." Just one way of looking at things..." on 20:11:09 11/04/07 Wed
