Overall Entertainment – 100 Points
In this category, the competitor should not be just flipping bottles to try and entertain the audience. They should be able to break down the imaginary wall between competitor and crowd. A competitor's choreography or physical style may play a part in this category. The competitor's routine should flow with the music and not be just flipping bottles with no concern for the music. The energy of their routine will also play a large role in their score in this category.
