With all the drama and concern about dancing in the trash bag, she seems to only be in it for about 5 seconds before it’s pulled away. She had great presence, great face, and then wraps herself in the bag at the very end. Abby says her top half is in the top half of the competition, and then blasts the rest of her technique. The zombie Antin says that maybe Asia learned how to be an artist from the Pussycat Dolls. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? Go home. You’re done. Can we please dismiss this bitch? All she does is talk about herself and her shitty burlesque group that she started five hundred years ago.
Now we have Brianna’s jazz funk number where she plays both Red Riding hood and the wolf. She sashays around, takes off the cloak, then gets a little feral for a hot second before grabbing the cloak and ending the number at the judges’ table. I just never like when a dancer ends by the judges. It reeks of desperation.
“Please let me stay, or I’ll eat you!”
Abby loved the routine for Brianna since she got to be sweet and mischievous. Richy thought she could work on her isolations more, but Robin, knowing fuck-all about real dance, says it was one of her favorite parts. Abby even gives the performance a big howl.
Now we finally have Amanda and Madison’s duet.
And of course we start with that damn eyebrow.
It looks like the two are working beautifully together, and I find myself surprised to be routing for both of them.
What is this? I’m reacting positively? Something must be wrong.
Of course we end with Amanda’s eyebrow because, WHAT ELSE.
Abby thought Amanda’s characterization was wonderful. Richy says he lost them as individuals, and Robin deathrattles that she agrees.
The judges deliberate, and I think Hadley or Asia should be going home. Abby claims she’s going for great lines and feet, and calls Asia and Hadley forward as being on the bottom. Abby praises Asia and tells Hadley that she was spritely and fun and nailed Tinkerbell. Abby tells Asia that she shines on stage but not in rehearsal, and Hadley is the opposite. Aw snap, Hadley is going home! Her hooked foot just wasn’t enough to save her today.
Well. Asia made it by yet another week. Sigh. She has personality on stage, and we never got see another blowup from Yvette. Maybe if Yvette had brought some drama backstage, they would have kept Hadley around. Well, we’ve got no time to waste, gasmii, let’s dive right into the next episode!!
BEND IT LIKE ABBY
We’re down to Jordyn, Asia, Madison, Brianna, and Amanda. Madison’s mom is upset that Asia is still here. Asia overheard that Madison thinks Hadley should still be here, and it hurts her feelings. Of course she’s going to cry, she’s a tiny little girl! We learn that Madison hurt her achille’s and I guess it’s going to have something to do with this week’s drama.
