NOTABLE MOMENTS:

  • Kristie calls Yvette out again.  Yvette calls Kristie a “Bi$*H, but only after Kristie leaves.

  • Lexine is commended for adult dance shine.
  • Richy needs Madison to turn it up a little more.
  • Richy and Robin thought Hadley and Jordyn were fantastic and perfection.
  • Richy was a little hesitant with his clap on Zack with his hip hop routine.  Robin didn’t think anyone of them had swag which included Brianna and Elisabeth.
  • Abby thought Amanda was outstanding with her Lyrical Number.  Richy gave two finger waves.  Robin couldn’t take her eyes off of her.
  • A Dance off between Elisabeth, Zack, and Madison sent Zack packing.

TOP PERFORMERS OF THE WEEK: Amanda

DANCE OFF: Zack, Elisabeth and Madison

BOTTOM THREE:

  1. Elisabeth – She squeaked by in the dance off.
  2. Madison – Been consistent, but they need more than that.
  3. Zack – He needs work on other genre’s and has to be more rounded.

ELIMINATED:  Zack (Gina – Mom)

SMARCHEL’S OPINION:

  • 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.

I’m SMarchel and Blog on it!  It’s my Opinion
