TOP PERFORMERS OF THE WEEK: Amanda
DANCE OFF: Zack, Elisabeth and Madison
- Elisabeth – She squeaked by in the dance off.
- Madison – Been consistent, but they need more than that.
- Zack – He needs work on other genre’s and has to be more rounded.
ELIMINATED: Zack (Gina – Mom)
- Yvette’s face during the eliminations of the Group Dance Challenge was priceless! She looked really worried.
- Hats off to Kelly for not getting involved in manipulation of Yvette.
- The Hip Hop number with Zack, Elisabeth and Brianna was hurting to watch.
- Zack mimicked Elisabeth in the Dance Off by going up to the judges wasn’t a smart move, I hope he learns from that. I still think he is a wonderful dancer and a great kid.
- Elisabeth’s crying is a lil redundant.
