This was going to be just a comment, but I'm going to put it in the answer space & take the downvotes like a grown-up ;) If you want the cynical answer, it's because there's so little actual excitement in the music itself that they have to do something to fill the stage. The material is identi-kit formulaic post-Stock, Aitken, Waterman that still seems ...

Music and dance have always been closely aligned, from folk traditions around the world, to the gavottes and minuets of the classical tradition, to the frenzied moshing of modern EDM concerts.

Your own musical journey might not be as unusual as you assume. A recent study showed that teenagers tend to like the music that is most popular at that moment, whereas people's tastes get less mainstream as they age.
