Upstairs again and Kelly is still bitching about all the acro in Brooke’s solo. Shrill says hey, why don’t you pull the solo and give “someone” else a chance. The moms: “STFU, Shrill.”
Sew, sew, sew your boat(neck).
Christi points out that wherever Shrill goes, someone breaks a foot. Ha ha. Shrill interviews that she’s not going to let any measure of self awareness stop her from making an ass of herself on TV. (Again, I paraphrase.)
We get a little snippet of Maddie taping her DDD role.
A troubled dancer? I don’t know anything about that.
She says that they made her do lots of takes and that’s good because she wants to be perfect.
Chloe and Kendall are rehearsing the duet and Jabby says she had no choice but to give the part to Kendall because Brooke is hurt and Nia doesn’t “fit in” with Chloe. Kendall interviews that she’s excited and she hopes this will help her get back on the dance team.
Next day, Maddie’s back and Jabby asks her how DDD was. Melissa says Maddie got a standing O. Maddie says they told her she needs to use her emotions more and Jabby says that’s what she’s been telling Maddie to do in all her dances.
Competition day. Brooke is pouting supposedly, but it’s hard to tell since she looks exactly the same as always.
This is my sad face
The group number is called Alouette and is French-themed. The girls are dressed in berets and striped tops. It’s cute.
“Fronch fries, Fronch bread, Fronch dressing… and to drink – Peru!”
Jabby of course complains that their ballet technique is not up to par and says it lacks that je ne sais quois she was looking for. She says it’s more comme ci, comme ça than she would have liked. Jabby’s Fronch is très bien. Jabby says they need to get that first place trophy to make it to Nationals.
Group awards. Well, luckily they get the first place trophy. I guess they are going to Nationals. Does that mean we are at least somewhat close to ending this season? Don’t get me wrong, I love my girls, but this season has been going on for approximately 965 years.
Mackenzie does her solo and it’s cute. (Do I say that every week? Sorry.)
Although I do agree with all the commenters who say she needs to do more dance and fewer tricks.
Brooke is slated to go next, but she is lying on the floor writhing in pain.
Poor man’s Maria von Trapp
Kelly puts a patch on her back and says that Brooke can’t do the solo because it hurts when she breathes. Shrill is lurking around in the background. She interviews that she wishes Kelly had pulled Brooke’s solo sooner because then maybe Kendall could have done a solo. Good lord. Give it a rest, ambulance chaser.
