Dance Signature Move:

Pauline is shocked that she’s on the show: “It still hasn’t clicked. I auditioned last season, made it to Top 32 but got cut before Top 20. And I’m surprised to be here now, because I got injured the last day of Vegas. I was wearing heels, I did a jump, I landed wrong, sprained my ankle and couldn’t do the choreography. When they told me that I’d made the Top 20, I lost it on stage. I’m so lucky to be here.” by Korbi Ghosh, Zap2it
