“Bitch, you can’t come for my broadway.”
Abby compliments Zack on his performance and masculinity. I feel that’s possibly a poor choice of words. She could have praised his tough look or countless attributes that convey the idea she’s going for, but we don’t need to give this kid a complex over masculinity at age 13. He’s already a boy in the dance world, I’m sure he deals with enough of that from outside pressures.
Anyabbythehutt, Abby shoos him away, leaving Amanda as the winner. I guess projection means giving a solid face performance of intensity. I agree though, she did finally deliver some looks. Her prize is a lyrical solo in the competition dance!
It’s amazing how far a little eyebrow mobility will take you.
The moms are in wardrobe working on the costumes for the competitions, and we’re treated to a flashback of Yvette and Kristie about to throw the fuck down. I wonder if they are actually making their outfits or if it’s like Ru Paul’s Drag U where it has been confirmed that they just tell the contestants to cut fabric and the outfits are provided for them. Yvette interviews that she’s not apologizing for anything. Jordyn’s mom Kelly claims that she’s not going to get involved in the drama.
Yvette tells us that if Asia wants to be dancing for many more years, her mom needs to give some ackright.
Like a moldy blow-up doll, left to wither in the sun.
Kristie walks in, and Elisabeth’s mom Erin tells the audience that since Yvette had just been saying nice things about Asia, maybe this is a good time to extend the olive branch to Kristie. But her tone told a different story.
Erin tells Kristie that maybe Yvette could repeat the nice things she was saying about Asia to Kristie. Kristie gets defensive immediately, and we’re drawn back in to the same argument as before. Erin says the olive branch broke. Yeah, because you poked a fucking bear with it. Kristie tells Yvette to own the fact that she made a child cry and laughed about, then rides off on her broom. Yvette thinks she’s a useless bitch. Honey, you all are.
At rehearsals, Jordyn and Hadley begin their musical theater style number of a Vaudeville performance. I think these two are great dancers, so this has mad potential.
Nothing says Vaudeville like a zebra print crop top.
Jordyn interviews that her mom is paired with the other studio owner Yvette, which she thinks is going to tough. I doubt she had the insight to prepare this thought, so it’s just the producers spelling out the obvious for our simple audience at home. Yvette jumps in and starts directing both girls. Kelly is offended that she wasn’t included, but she’s keeping her trap shut for the sake of her daughter.
