However, Dance Direct expected a higher position for Kate (which she achieved) based on the unknown factor of her look on the day. “From the rehearsals it looks like her performance and dress will be a challenge to top,” Laura Crimmons of Silverthorn Agency told Noise11.com prior to the contest.
The Dance Direct algorithm predicted the outcome based on BPM, Dance-ability, Energy, Loudness, Valance (mood) and Speech-iness. The formula predicted at win for Duncan Laurance from The Netherlands, which was correct.
