You wanted to humiliate the girls and you did. When Melissa complained that Bryn has already had more opportunities than Nia ever has, I was thinking it's because Nia is not as good a dancer! Probably around two months, in other words, still at the edge of being a newborn that shouldn't really be on planes or around lots of people. Abby sys Nia can do it and says put Gianna with Nia and Kendall. With most dance jobs, race won't matter, but there will be some jobs that dancers like Maddie won't qualify for and Nia will. I think they should have replaced Kalani with Jojo, she's better at perky jazz than Nia is. Abby is playing Ashlee like a violin. And some people can practice all they want with the greatest coach and never get to the same level others can.
Nia has endured much, much worse from Abby and has handled it all without complaint and with a can do attitude. Bryn is a much better dancer than Nia and Kendall already. I know the song stopping was likely just production. Melissa says she wishes Kira was here to see how much her back is hurting. She was just so slobby and icky.
Makes me understand why they keep Kalani around - she balances out the groups some so there isn't so much of a difference between Maddie and the rest of them. The kid is disappointed in herself, so you didn't need to knock her further. Jill I don't feel bad for, and reached new lows this episode. But her and Brynn were amazing. Do you guys agree that Nia gets bad choreography like Holly always says, or is she just plain not that good of a dancer? I don't disagree with Abby putting Nia in dances that she is portraying a black person because in the real world, if they are doing a broadway show, the directors will be auditioning only black women for a part of say Rosa Parks.
Mac - maybe a Disney or Nickelodeon gig - and as much as I like Maddie - using kids as judges to me is bonkers - whether it be in competition or on shows. She was never really number 2, she is just not a very good dancer or performer. She's a mean girl plain and simple, though the apple doesn't fall far from the tree on that one. I've noticed the girls posting some pictures with these kids as well. And since I don't like Ashley, I find it hilarious. Brynn, who is expected to replace Maddie when the latter leaves the show to pursue her acting career, was initially brought in to sub for the frequent Sia collaborator while she took the first few episodes of season 6 off to shoot scenes for an upcoming film.
Kilani is her child, even if she can't be bothered to fly out there for a week, or a weekend, the least she should be doing is paying Melissa something for her caring for Kilani. Yea she comes off bratty and talks back sometimes, but the thing is I'm not that sort of person who talks back to adults , but even I would talk back to some of the things Abby says to the kids. Jill says they need to ask about and they all go. Maddie does get an expression, but it's not what is meant. Especially if her child is still breastfeeding, or she really needs that time to bond. Usually she's all about Kendall being above everyone else.
I remember Asia, she had her own show and I watched it so she probably won't be back. The elites perform a tribute to Prince but feel the pressure to do him justice and fear they will fail to win with another tribute dance. Christi Chloe's mom was too harsh and mouthy, while Holly avoids swearing and uses her words. She needed to see if Brynn was good enough before she added her to the team, 2. Peyton and Lilliana from the mini team are given an acrobatic duet. However, they don't stand up for the two which leads to Kerri taking Peyton to Erin's team. When Abby dared try to help Nia with this aspect, people got all horrified.
If the duet had gotten pulled she would have bitched about that too and Kehlani's injury certainly wasn't Abby's fault. Jill says she has a team of seven and should give them every chance and equal opportunities. I could feel myself getting riled up at the disrespect. I think it's starting to sink in that Kendall is now 4 at best and even that is questionable if you take performance skills into the equation. Later, with Kira absent and the original moms distracted, takes the opportunity to fill in for 's newly fired office manager causing more drama with the other moms. I'll watch, just to see what excuse Abby comes up with next week.
Is she living out a Rapunzel fantasy? The amount of abuse these kids endured over the years is just sick. I guess I wasn't necessarily talking about the duet, but the comments from her about new kids taking away Nia's opportunities. While normally I do not defend Abby, I really don't think she was that bad this episode. And that other scene where Ashlee was whining to Abby in the dressing room was quite funny, actually. This also makes it the lowest viewed season to date. I absolutely love watching those girls dance. Also the more I see, the more I'm convinced Kendall is a straight up brat.
