I was browsing around youtube and stumbled against this video, and I truly believe the piano player is EXTREMELY foolish for all those unnecessary movements during this performance, however, I have no complains about the playing. How would you evaluate this performance? Do you guys think it compromises our technique as pianists?

How would I evaluate this performance?

I wouldn't and thank God I don't have to.

Of all the things that prevent that video from looking and sounding professional, the keyboardist's movements don't even make the top 50.

That being said, it looks like a talent show, and having been to several school talent shows, it is refreshing to see people actually making the music themselves instead of standing around doing bad karaoke.
