We start with batshit crazy Abby screaming at production telling them to leave and calling the police on them. It’s hard to say if she is on something or just literally losing her mind over the potential of going to jail. I wonder if she has negotiated a plea deal yet. To top it all off she fired her front desk employee. This gives Ashlee a chance to step into that position and suck up to Abby. It’s not like all the other moms haven’t done this before. Especially Melissa.
Abby puts Brynn on the bottom so obviously this is going to be one of those fantasyland pyramids where Abby just bases it off how she feels about the moms. Maddie is next. Then Kendall, Kalani, Nia, JoJo and Mackenzie on top. She is really mad at Maddie. And by mad I mean jealous.
The girls are doing a group dance in heels for the first time. I never realized before that they didn’t wear heels. There are two duets. Kendall and Kalani will do a jazz duet called Grifters. Kalani has an injured back. The second duet is Maddie and Brynn. They are doing a lyrical called Together as One. Abby is pissy with all the moms. The moms are pissed that Kira doesn’t want to participate in the show anymore. Jill’s mom is super pissed that Brynn is in the duet with Maddie.
The moms are thrilled that the Bob Fosse tribute group dance is more mature choreography. It’s about time. Kalani has a bad back, so they they give her a jazz dance with lots of choreography where that requires her partner to hit her back. It’s ridiculous. They call Kira and she pulls Kalani from the competition this week. Nia has been chosen to take Kalani’s place in the duet.
Abby shows up to the competition sick and looking like a hot mess. Ashlee gets stuck doing Abby’s hair. Jill is a complete and total bitch to Ashlee. Don’t they ever get tired of screaming the same old things?
Abby has been talking about a rash all over her face this whole episode, it is not until I see it at the competition that I realize how bad it is! What is that? Is it hives from the stress?
Nia and Kendall’s Solo
It was bad. Of course it was bad. It was comical choreography that was clunky on it’s own. Nia learned the routine hours before. The costumes were atrocious and it was one of the worst performances in ALDC history. Nia and Kendall are both in tears. Backstage Kendall says they were set up for failure and humiliation. Jill and Abby have a huge fight.
Brynn and Maddie’s Solo
Very quickly into their routine the music stopped and never returned. They did their entire routine without missing a beat. It was a pretty little lyrical number and they will probably score well. Brynn held her own dancing next to Maddie.
The Group Dance
The girls are not only wearing heels for the first time, a lot of them are wearing wigs. The dance was good. Abby loved it. I guess it will probably win. Frankly, I was a little bored. But that is probably just because I’m in sort of a funk this weekend.
Maddie and Brynn won first place. Somehow Nia and Kendall came in second place overall. I have a feeling there were only three duets in the competition. The group dance came in first.
Back stage, Melissa is furious with Ashlee who is worming her way into Abby’s good graces.
