Dance Moms is finally moving to L.A. but they are still not in Abby’s Studio. The girls and moms go into the studio and find Abby muttering to herself about earrings. She is not wearing any and just can’t work without earrings. Why is Abby like legit crazy every time they are in L.A. Abby is disheveled and sits down with a giant handbag and begins pulling stuff out, bags full of snacks, papers, eventually she dumps the entire purse out onto the studio floor. Change rolls everywhere, it amazing all of the crap that is in that purse.
Pyramid was interesting only in that Nia was very close to the top and Abby complimented her on her performance.
Abby announces the she will probably not go to the competition because she is too busy. She gives solos to Kalani, Nia and Kendall. Still not willing to let Maddie go up against the L.A. girls, Abby? Kendall also has a video premier tomorrow.
Nia is the lead in the group dance. That is nice. But the group dance is called Shame on You or something similar and the premise is that Nia is a traitor who is trying to lure the rest of the team away from Abby. That is not nice.
Remember when Abby said she got throw out by production at a competition and didn’t come back for a week? I am starting to think Abby is on drugs and production removed her because of legal concerns especially around the kids. Her moods are all over the place.
During Kendall’s solo practice Kendall cries because of some sort of foot pain and Abby yells at her to suck it up. Kendall is limping. Jill gives Kendall another “suck it up” speech.
It is time for Kendall’s video premier. One of the things that was so great about Nia’s video premier in Australia was that she was so confident and seemed to have zero issues with nerves. That is not the case for Kendall. She looses like she is walking to the gallows and Abby is her executioner.
Young people can’t clap anymore because they always have one hand full of phone.
Kendall’s video is not anywhere near as good as Nia’s. The song is fine. The military theme is bad and seems almost disrespectful in some ways. The song and the military theme have nothing in common. Kendall does a lengthy solo dance at the end. There really is not much singing involved. Kendall did not sing live at all.
Nia’s solo dance is called Master of Disguise to a drum beat with no lyrics. It’s another jab at Nia she wears two masks during the routine. The implication is that Abby thinks Nia is two-faced.
Nia and Kendall bout have props required in their dances, and yet there are no props. So they are rehearsing with no props.
Kalani has a beautiful costume, Nia is wearing a blue condom as a costume, and Kendall’s costume is missing entirely. Somehow this is Abby’s fault. I thought the whole purpose of being a Dance Mom was to bring all the costumes and supplies for their kid.
Kalani’s dance was shown first. She did fine, it was just like all of her other dances, it had a lot of acrobatics. Kalani seems a bit thicker than she was for the first half of the season. Kalani actually forgot her dance and just did another solo on the fly.
Nia’s solo was fine. It was a tribal type thing just like every other solo she does. She had no time to practice with the masks and had issues with both of them. One came off too soon and the other would not come all the way off her head and just sort of bounced around. She was a trouper though and didn’t let on that it was a problem.
Kendall could not dance because she had no costume. That is Jill’s fault as far as I am concerned.
The group dance was okay. It was different from the usual ones featuring Maddie. I didn’t think Nia was that great in her lead role. It was kind of clunky.
Nia took 5th in the teen category for her solo. Kalani took first with her solo. I have no idea why. The group dance took first place as well.
Abby tells Kira this long, long story about how she was up sick all night. She had ten tons of complaints. She was incoherent. She has to be on something, right?
