Seriously! Maybe they didn’t want Jasmine to seem too perfect? That’s all I can think of. Nigel once said a few seasons ago (don’t remember which by now) that he wanted tap to be a style you could choose out of the hat if you could do it. I guess that idea didn’t fly with the other producers or something. >.<
I remember during season 8 Nigel said in an interview that they had four contestants who could do tap (Nick, Melanie, and ???) and still nothing. Also, picking out of the hat isn’t done anymore (which I think is the cause of all the genre bias now). No way a pointe routine was randomly assigned to Chehon and Eliana.
I made two reaction gifs today, and I have absolutely no patience to save these for a bigger post. Please like this post if you plan to use them.
