AWKWARD.
The judge did pretty well, the "bravery" bit was a little condescending but how the hell do you say "we're looking for someone with a neck"?
Braze
Well, that's not very fair. It takes a lot of courage to stick your neck out like that and risk rejection, and really she has a lot of backbone to go this far. This audition, all things considered, was head and shoulders above the competition, and I think the judge short-changed her.
rapsnacks
He wanted head, neck and shoulders above :/

She'll never be the neck of a major corporation.

oogaBooga
oh my god thank you guys, i was just about to pull the trigger

Lindner
She's really quite graceful.

Watching with mingled nausea and awe, I found myself somewhat sad realizing that she has spent years practicing, believing earnestly that she could overcome the unfortunate hand fate dealt her.

Then I laughed my ass off at "stick your neck out". These stars are for you guys.

Maybe your mom should've let you accept that there are some things you're not suited for, before you look like a crazy freak on national TV. I knew a girl with a deformed arm and a gimpy leg in high school who joined the Modern Dance troupe, the moment of disillusionment was epic.

See, I think she knew that she wasn't going to move up in the competition. I think she did this to make a point, that if you have enormous physical disability, it shouldn't stop you from trying to do the things that other people do. She didn't do a bad job given her limitations. I think she proved that you can still try to live a normal life and wanted to maybe inspire others that suffer from physical deformity. I once met a blind girl that made pottery.

I think that she had reasons other than winning in mind when she did this.

Also, she reminds me of Rene Laloux's Gandahar.

Dueserpenti, that was such a Dutch thing to say.

Regarding Modern Dance, physical deformities do not necessarily preclude a career, much less a performance opportunity.

http://www.spitzerdancecompany.org/alex.htm

Modern Dance often seems to attract people with very accepting attitudes; with notions that anything is valid.

Certainly such a physical deformity would preclude a career in ballet, tap, jazz, etc.

Be fair, she was great in El Topo.
