There are new rumors on the Internet about the minis. Abby announced recently that production had decided not to bring them back for season seven, the last season before Abby may have to go into the big house for some fraudulent behavior related to her business asset reallocation bankruptcy. Now the rumor is that they may have changed their minds. I think they are filming now, so we should know more soon. In the meantime, I’m going to do a really quick catchup on the last two episodes.
In this episode the original moms and the mini moms’ rivalry comes to a head. All that really matters in this week’s pyramid is that three of the minis ranked higher than Jo Jo and Brynn. This is basically because Jo Jo’s mom took over for Abby running the backstage run throughs last week when Abby walked out. They are also pissed that there was only one pyramid. So Abby decides to go back to two.
The competition is in Pheonix. Since Brynn and Kalani are both from there, they have a duet called Prettier than Poison. Nia and Kendall are doing their dance from last week. The minis have a lyrical group dance. The juniors are doing a routine about their old mothers using walkers. Eventually the junior elite moms all pull their kids from the dance.
I just noticed this episode is an hour and a half? Why? This is why I have to tape it in the wee hours of the morning.
Brynn and Kalani’s snake dance was really good. I thought they showed off a lot of technique. It was an interestingly slow tempo. Their minimalistic costumes put the focus on their dance. To this untrained eye it appeared to be quite good.
Nia and Kendall’s dance was not that spectacular to start with. And then Nia’s strap that was the only thing holding up her boobs popped. From there it was just her trying to keep from having her corset fall off the rest of the routine. While that was an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction, I didn’t like the choreography at all.
After the duets but before group dances, the mini moms try to politely tell the old moms that their girls went to wish the girls doing their duets good luck and they were mean to them. The old moms don’t give a fuck. They learned it from them. Then the old moms attack the mini moms, literally. Kira gets up in their faces screaming at them and then shoved them out of the way and they left the room. #Klassy
The night before the competition, the Elites made up their own routine. The option Abby had given them was to do improve. While Abby has been very sane and easy-going this week, she has taken little interest in the Elites.
The minis were awesome especially for their very first lyrical. Even my special one, Peyton was on the beat. It was very cute. I hope the real music was less depressing.
The Elites dance was probably the best thing I have ever seen them do. It made me SUPER emotional. They probably one first overall. That dance right there is why I watch this show. I don’t understand why the whole auditorium was not on their feet.
Nia and Kendall got third place. That was a gift. The bad news is that Kalani and Brynn only got second.
The Minis took first AGAIN. The Teen Group won first and the MC was put up to ask them who their choreographer was. They eventually said, “us.”
After the comp, the old moms act like fools once again. They tell Abby they have to pick their team over the minis or they might just walk. At this point, I’ve had enough of the old moms. Even Holly has become an old shrew with raggedy edges and a slick mouth.
This episode, Abby randomly puts Nia on top. WTF? I’ve been complaining about how she treats Nia for years. Especially when it comes to pyramid. But she is on top this week for coming in third behind another duet and managing to complete her dance after a wardrobe malfunction? AND HOLLY went at Abby in threatening way after the competition? This is ridiculous. This was Kalani’s week. She led the group dance to victory.
Abby gives the Elites a dance called The End of the Road. Holly thinks this means Abby thinks the old team is washed up. I think it means that Holly and the other bitches keep threatening Abby that they are leaving because she is working with the minis. The minis dance is Mime Your Business. It’s their first acrobatic dance.
The two duets go to teams of one mini with one junior. Brynn and Jo Jo are the two juniors. The two minis are two of the not Peytons.
Brynn and Lillianna’s duet was cute. I thought Lilli was really good. I couldn’t take my eyes off of her. She’s seven! I could see here getting some roles for that performance. Brynn was fine too. Abby did NOT look pleased. Even Lilli’s mom didn’t seem thrilled. I seem to be alone in my assessment. That said, it’s being edited all episode to be Jo Jo’s big chance to take down Brynn.
JoJo and Elliana’s duet is sort of a comedic one. However, Eliiana says she is imaging herself to be Selena. Then she mentions to Brynn that the person who killed Selena was named Yolanda. And that’s her mom’s name. Wow, there’s some psychological damage oozing out. Then Elliana totally blanked out on her part on stage. I don’t know that it mattered much because it was a horrible duet to start with.
The old moms refused to help the minis get their mime makeup done for the group dance. Not sure how I feel about that. I could argue either side.
The minis dances should take first again. I couldn’t really pick my kid out of the group. I would have had to put a hat on her or something.
I was bored by the Junior group dance. They were together and things went fine. I was very distracted around the fourth or fifth time they randomly picked the hem of their dresses up to show their granny panties. It just seems like an odd distraction. It was very Dorothy from Wizard of Oz if you had quintuple vision from quaaludes. Kind of relaxing and soothing, yet odd.
Brynn and her Ana came in second. JoJo and her Ana won first. That’s utterly ridiculous. That was not a first place number.
The Minis win first AGAIN! The Juniors got fifth place. They deserved it, but this is going to cause a brouhaha. Abby actually was more unhappy with the minis group. She said they are not performing as one unit. Of course not. They are a new group and they are first and second graders.
