Many times, when I don't get a fairly good look, I request another song and try to focus on those that stood out in the 1st or 2nd song to determine what place they deserve in "my eyes".

Focusing too long on one dancer is unfair.
That's true. Also I believe a judge has to move around to get a good look to see what is going on too. I hate it when they stand like statues. That's why when I judge I always move..... you can't really tell if you don't.

At first when they start the song it seems they like to bunch up and there is no way you can pick one out in the crowd, because like you say...... you only have a few seconds for each one.
