    To give emphasis to the meaning of the sentence

    Explanation:

    Read it aloud, "The judges themselves said it was the worst performance they had ever seen." Another way to emphasis this would be to say "Even the judges said it was the worst performance they had even seen", or, "Even the judges themselves said it was the worst performance they had ever seen"

    These types of questions tend to trick you, so take my answer with a grain of salt and trust your gut! What has the rest of your unit/education shared? Have they been teaching you emphasis? Have they been teaching you how to read humor within text? Are you focusing on "change" in text? Good luck!
