First up is Elisabeth. She does her turns and then her improve is predictably slutty. She throws herself at the judges, and we’ll see if they fall for it.
So over this trick.
At least her imrpov felt fluid. Madison is not thrilled about Elisabeth’s stunt, and I sense some jealousy.
Zack is next. His improve starts with an aerial (yay!), but then he does same tired move and sashays down to the judges. Half of his improv was spent running to the judges, so he could have done so much better.
Now it’s Madison’s turn. She chooses to showcase her own skills rather than sucking up to the judges, so at least she stands out in that respect. Everyone but the three who just danced are announced safe, and we bring the moms over to stand behind the dancers on the chopping block in case one of them faints.
Zack’s mom looks straight up murderous.
Ugh, you guys, I don’t like this.
Kevin Manno is blahblahblahing and I notice that he has really pretty green eyes.
Except he looks a little stoned here. Only way to deal with all that bullshit around him.
Elisabeth is crying once again since she thinks she shouldn’t be there. Abby calls her forward and tells her that she has a dancer’s look, but she was sloppy. She is safe however. Maybe she’s not destined to win this? Or maybe they’re setting it up for a comeback.
Abby tells Madison and Zack that they did nothing wrong, they just weren’t excellent. She says Zack improved, and Richy tells him he needs to expand his genres. Abby tells Madison that they need more than just consistency. Notice how Robin has nothing good enough to say that makes it to air.
Aaaaaaaaaaaand, Zack is out! BOOOOO!!! Abby says she would love to have him as a partner for her girls at ALDC. Zack and his mom are totes professional and classy about it, and the girls are genuinely distraught that he had to go
“Shhh, I put glass in Elizabeth’s dance shoes.”
Next time on AUDC Elisabeth snaps, Kristie and Yvette are at it once again, and Hadley dances the story of Lilu from The Fifth Element.
So that’s it for this week, you gasmii! I’m so sad! I really loved Zack’s dancing, and he was a fucking class act. I hate to say it, but if they really are looking for a well-rounded dancer in all genres, they were justified in cutting him, in my opinion. What did you all think? Did they make the right decision? Can Asia really last a long time in the competition? Will Robin ever have anything of substance to say? Tune in next week, and for now let’s chat in the comments below!
