Versatility is actually of utmost importance in such concepts. First of all it is a 'general' dance show and not a 'specific' dance show. Secondly, if everyone did the their own thing, we would be comparing apples to oranges. You simply cannot fairly compare apples and oranges, nor can you arbitrarily decide that oranges are better. By including versatility we compare one basket of fruit to another.
That is one person maybe good at X dance and the other person at Y dance. Both are extremely proficient at their genre and close to perfection. They get a 10/10 in their respective genre. Without versatility, you are forced two compare two different genres and arbitrarily decide which dance is better than the other. Introduce versatility and you can now get a better comparison.
Focus on versatility is not saying jack of all is better. The goal is to challenge dancers and find a fair factor to compare people who may have different genre strengths.
