I am two episodes behind on Dance Moms and last night my DVR picked up the Choreographer’s cut of the episode it refused to film previous so I am going to start with that one first. The last episode I saw, Holly went off on Abby for saying things about Nia. She was threatening to take this weeks solo away. Holly is still going at Abby. Good for her.
Time for pyramid. The girls are reminded that the group solo from the previous competition was removed because of their mother’s behavior. That is a total lie. We also have a new mom and a new Sarah even though nationals are just two short weeks away. This makes no sense. There really was no pyramid because only Maddie performed.
This new kid Sarah gets a solo. Kendall will be doing the routine that Maddie did last week. Nia is getting a solo and will be working with other dance instructors. Nia’s routine is a tribute to Maya Angelou. I love Maya Angelou , but I hate that Abby only gives Nia ethnic roles and she doesn’t get to grow in other areas.
The group routine is a childish musical theatre piece. The mom’s are not confident that it is a winning piece. Abby has brought in a seventh dancer to be in the group dance which is sort of a seven dwarves thing.
The group is an hour late to the venue. Kathy is there working with one of her boys, allegedly. She had no dancers in the competition. First up is Sarah’s solo. She’s good. Not great. I don’t remember seeing her dance before. It was very acrobatic. Next up is Nia. Wow that was Nia’s best dance ever. Very emotional. Lots of difficult moves. Kendell’s solo was good. Kathy and one of her minions were picking at Kendall’s performance. Jill gets into it with Kathy afterward.
The group dance costumes are ridiculous. I cannot believe that Abby is going to put this on stage. That was the dumbest routine I have ever seen.
Sarah comes in fourth place in the solos. Kendell comes in second place. NIA WINS! NIA WINS! NIA WINS! NIA WINS!
Good lord that crapola group routine won! Kaylee sucked in the group routine and Abby seems to think she did fine. Abby sends Sarah home.
Did I mention NIA WON?
