    All of them they are a balance. JR is a bit of an extreme hard can be u reasonably hard and unfair but for the most part is technical which brings a good balance. Somozi is a whole vibe which is entertaining, rounded abs likable while Thembi is an objective sweet heart making contestants feel at home while really also technically competent. It’s a perfect combo. They were all too hard on today’s white 29 year old boy though, it was too brutal, I felt a lack of understanding of his own cultural genre while I agree he wasn’t suitable, their comments were extremely u fair and nasty to him he may need to de-trauma/ but love all the judges…
