It seems the public has spoken and now you can see the picture chosen to feature everyone’s favorite little dancer. Take a look at Maddie brand New cover for Pittsburgh Manic Magazine. Who doesn’t love a smiling Maddie- xoxo DmGossipGirl
So while I was just standing there watching the girls get their photos with other people, Kendall being the absolute cutie she is started complaining about being hungry and then she just yells out, I want a corn dog, if someone gets me a corn dog I will give them my snapchat and love them forever because right now all I want in life is a corn dog.
….. andddd why would they have the girls train in a construction site?
Kira does NOT look happy omg. I wouldn’t be either to have my daughter dance in that environment.
Jessalynn is speaking truth
I really hate how Abby is just wanting these girls to win for advertisement purposes.
Aww Mackenzie is off filming that Nickelodeon show!
Abby is rubbing it in that Mackenzie is the last person to win first.
Jill is calling forward, aided by Kira, that they haven’t had classes lately. And Kira adds that 2 classes a week isn’t enough. (and it shows. It shows. No matter what Abby says).
Side note. Jill’s hair. !
Jill’s bringing up the point that the girls don’t have teachers in LA and that Abby isn’t bringing any in
According to Abby, having more classes would mean no more auditions, no more meetings and no more performances.
According to Abby, they have to make a choice. Be a student and wait till they are 18 to pursue all of this, then they can be in class.
Ok. so. In an interview. Abby says classes are a joke. And that the girls know how to improve themselves…. Like… As someone who owns a dance studio and who’s income comes from these girls taking classes…. she really shouldn’t be saying that? Right? And as an ex-dancer… I can tell you that if you are stuck on a bad habit, you often can’t even see it yourself. You need someone to constantly catch you.
Kendall is at the bottom of the pyramid. Because she didn’t win with the solo that consisted of only turns. But I got to repeat that I loved her energy and faces in that dance! I find it really rude that Abby is saying she crashed and burned. It wasn’t her fault if her choreography sucked and wasn’t competitive
Jojo is next. Abby is saying her turns weren’t as good as usual.
Mackenzie is next. Abby is being super rude wow. She said that Mackenzie got off a big win after winning against her sister and that then she got cast to be on a Nickelodeon show while Maddie is standing there in a dance studio. First off. Pretty sure she got cast before anyone even knew Mackenzie would win. Second off. Why does she do that to Maddie? Maddie has had tons of success, why not just let her be happy for her sister?
Ok. I’m seriously getting annoyed. Abby wants Maddie to admit to being jealous of her sister. And while I wouldn’t blame her if she was a tad (Because honestly, who wouldn’t? I would be tbh) it’s really horrible that Abby seems to strive in that. I’m glad Maddie and Melissa made it clear that they weren’t.
Nia is next on the pyramid. With Kalani after her. They were fine, took the corrections, adapted to the changes. And that’s it. Abby doesn’t take more than 30 seconds on them
Maddie is on top. That she stepped into the role of the lead knowing that she was taking Mackenzie’s spot.
Routines will be critiqued live on stage.
Kendall’s solo: burn.
Nia’s solo: can i do this
Maddie’s solo: loose canon.
Abby wants to see if Maddie can do better than second.
50s inspired MT piece. OMG. YES.
OOOO only pyramid was done at ALDC LA. Back to 3rd street for rehearsal.
Holly stating it as it is. Girls are getting great at picking up choreography but it isn’t the same as training.
Kira bringing up that Kalani doesn’t have any interest in singing (hinted that acting either) and that she just wants to dance. And that she’s a dancer.
Holly and Jessalynn like that side of Kira who cares about the training. And Jessalynn brings up that Kira has a lot of connections and should be in charged of the girls training schedule.
Kira brings up Tessandra Chavez and the possibility of bringing her in. She worked with both Jojo and Kalani on the AUDC
Kira called Tessandra and invited her. Basically saying straight up that the bottom line is: the girls need training. Tessandra says she’s the best person to whip them into shape.
Love how quickly they try to get Kira to hang up so Abby doesn’t realise.
Abby’s leaving for the day. Impressive.
Abby doesn’t want anyone on the team that isn’t a first place winner… but she has 3 soloists so obviously 2 can’t be?
Ok. Ok, Abby is telling Maddie that because she got beat by her sister, it reflects badly on the studio? … How does that even make sense. Mackenzie ATTENDS THE SAME STUDIO. The Studio won the top 3 spots. Who cares the order? Why is she putting so much pressure and negativity on Maddie? How can we expect Maddie to be happy for her sister winning a dance competition, even at the sake of her own victory, if she is constantly being punished and mocked for the next 2-3 weeks!?
Abby is putting blame on the girls. She asked how many of them sit on yoga balls (train) every morning, and none of the girls answered. Abby yelled in their faces that they obviously didn’t want to do this. And Maddie said she did. And Abby said to go buy the equipment needed to train at home.
I feel really bad for Maddie because she’s obviously trying really hard, and Abby makes her think it’s her fault and that SHE’S not trying hard enough while the real blame lies at Abby’s feet.
Melissa is crying? Because Maddie is. But she won’t face Abby. And I’m really starting to see that Melissa just fears Abby.
It’s horrid to see Abby be so eugh towards Maddie. You can tell how much it affects her. I hate how quickly Abby just gives up on kids simply because they don’t win.
Eugh Abby needs to shut up. Because Nia is a “budding pop star” she can’t be 5th at a competition.
OOO. No classes, no studio, no opportunities. BAM
According to Abby, she has to dilute everything for Kendall because of lack of turn out and flexibility.
Moms are fed up. They want the girls to be trained. Moms walking in the classroom.
Jessalynn asking if Abby has any classes planned. Abby doesn’t.
Abby says they can quit, break their contract, and go elsewhere. WTF? THOSE GIRLS ARE WHAT IS MAKING SURE YOU HAVE FOOD ON YOUR TABLE
Lmao, Holly said Abby turns into a 5 years old having a tantrum hahaha
Ok… Gianna tore into Kendall… but she could have done that and fixed her error so much nicer… She’s turning into Abby.
Jill asked when the last time Kendall had a stretch class, and Abby turns it against Kendall asking why couldn’t she do it in the bedroom.
Basically, Abby just told Kendall she was excused for the day.
Jill and Abby going at it, and poor Kendall is lying on the floor crying screaming at her mom to stop.
Abby just has to say that Kendall should have been in class instead of shooting her video… wtf.
Maddie brings up the fact that Abby made her cry to her mom, looking down… and Melissa just tries to excuse it?
She’s teaching her kids that it’s ok to lash out on others when you have a lot of things on your plate. It’s wrong.
Abby has the moms line up so that the girls can perform the group dance for them, and oops, Tessandra walks in (Staged much)
Wtf Abby. Tessandra walks in. And Abby just acts like she has no idea who she is. No idea who this woman is… who worked on her show. Who is renown in the dance industry. How can Abby say she’s so famous and so well surrounded in the dance industry if she doesn’t even know who TESSANDRA is.
Tessandra obviously knows Abby. Because she’s approaching this the safest way you can with Abby. Except Abby’s not taking it.
She said Kira was over-zealous.
And oh. Kira didn’t know what zealous meant. And now Abby is mocking her?
Ok. Tessandra won’t be teaching the girls because she has integrity and won’t come in the company without Abby’s approval. And Abby is just looking there all smugged. She just took away an AMAZING opportunity for her girls. And she won’t allow it? Wtf. This woman’s ego is way too big.
According to Jessalynn, Abby will have hard time finding teachers for her new studio after teaching Tessandra like that.
According to Abby, she’s better than Tessandra because she is on Dance Moms? Bitch, this woman needs a freaking reality check.
Abby just bringing up the attention to Gianna. Who agrees the girls are done for the day. Wow.
Holly: She’s so paranoid thinking that everyone is out to get her
Wow rude. So Mackenzie is there to join in the group dance. And Abby is talking to Maddie saying that the last time she had a solo, she got beat by Mackenzie and that she still doesn’t understand why… in front of Mackenzie.
Kalani is so cute giving Nia a pep talk before her solo!
Someone needs to teach this camera crew how to freaking film a dance.
They barely showed any of Nia’s solo. Wasn’t too much of a fan. Seemed bland and the technique wasn’t up to par to what she can do.
Judge: Continue to work on your feet and your transitions. So stay in your technique classes. Stay in your ballet classes. But let me just tell you, you are not dancing as a student, you are dancing as a mature performer. Good job.
LMAO! ABBY AND GIANNA’S FACES OMG
Jill said Kendall hasn’t beaten Maddie in years… Has Kendall ever beaten Maddie?
Eh, I kinda like this solo of Kendall’s. She hits things nicely. She seems a bit out of breath though? Turnouts. I can see it.
Like. Nia and Kendall. I actually really paid attention to their technique and I seriously… They did regress. Both of them.
Judge: Kendall, the hypnotic beauty. The choreography and the music were very complimentary and you executed those accents well. You were in the zone. Amazing. Fantastic job you’re beautiful, like I said great job hitting those accents.
Maddie interview: If I don’t win, Maddie will probably kill me.
Did Abby forget Maddie’s costume or something?
One of those few dances where Maddie isn’t pulling it off emotion wise tbh.
A few new things incorporated in her dance. Just not enough time to tidy it up. Technical flaws also.
Judge: Because dance competitions are at an all time high with caliber, we have to talk details. Including like depening your plié, and those transitions as your body grows. Fantastic job, keep on keeping on.
Wow. Kinda harsh.
And Abby is whispering to Melissa, obviously unhappy.
Maddie’s poor face. You can see it changing while she’s leaving stage.
Judges are affirming what the mothers are saying -Holly
Did Abby just say the Judge’s comments were offline?
OOOO. HAHA! Abby was appreciating and liking what Nia was saying when she said that Abby taught them the tools and all, but when Nia started saying they wanted more, Abby just shut her up.
Abby told Kira she didn’t like mommies playing dancing school and Kira answered that she’s been doing it for 14 years and that’s why Kalani is the dancer she is.
Abby just started crying? What?
I disagree with the girls going to hug Abby. Abby is manipulating the situation. She couldn’t fight out of it, so she started crying to get pity. And the girls going for a hug? That’s establishing her power over them.
She accepts the hug from Kendall,
Omg, Jessalynn is my soul mate. She said Abby knows she’s wrong so she starts bawling like a baby because she knows there is no other way out.
Accepts the hug from Mackenzie.
She refuses Jojo, Nia and Kalani telling them: “don’t, get away from me”
Accepts the BIGGEST HUG EVER from Maddie.
Kira. Kira started crying at seeing her daughter get rejected.
Abby’s face while hugging Maddie. Omg. This woman is a sociopath. She’s insane. Omg. That smirk.
Why is Gianna crying?
Why is Gianna acting like such a bitch? What did we miss?
I guess Gianna is taking it personally that they don’t think she’s enough? But why would she be.
WOW WTF! ABBY JUST SAID THAT KALANI WOULD RATHER BE WITH ANY OTHER MOTHERS THAN KIRA!
Kira. My heart is breaking for a woman I don’t usually back up. But wow. Go Kira. Honestly.
She’s saying it. She won’t tolerate Abby treating her child like that, everyone else will but she will not.
OOO Kira called Abby a fucking bitch, that she was done, and is screaming at Kalani to go.
According to Abby, Kira begged her to let Kalani back.
Abby said she wanted Kalani with her, not with Kira.
Wtf.. Wtf.. Abby just slut shamed Kira? She just said Kira was sleeping with a man she’s not married to? What is this? The 1920′s?
OOOO Melissa is telling Kira to come inside, and Kira just goes on! Telling Melissa to go to hell too hahaha. Yes! Kira’s going at it! Saying she’s sick of the moms always supporting her, sitting there acting as if it’s ok. (And she’s staring rightttt at Melissa).
Why on earth is Abby walking in in her bra? Does she always walk around like that? With camera filming?
Oh, did anyone else hear the “out the door, no cameras on her” … and yet they show it on the show?
Abby doesn’t seem to get the point though? It’s not just about a few classes.
Kalani seems to be done with the fighting. She’s just there to dance.
Kalani stays for the group number.
(note that Abby stormed out of the competition… in her bra)
Jill saying she’s happy they didn’t leave, and that the group wouldn’t be the same without her.
Kira says Kalani wouldn’t just leave the group dance like that after she learned it. But that as far as coming back, that’s to be determined.
Did Gianna really put a seat in between her and Melissa?
That group dance seems like so much fun to dance omg.
But there were a lot of errors.
Judge: Ladies, so professional. I felt like I was watching a professional show. Keep working as you can pick up those feet. But great job. And keep up the good work.
Overall 12-14 solo division:
Kendall is 5th
Nia is 4th
When they say only a 10th of a point made her 3rd place… does this mean between 3rd and 4th… or between 2nd and 3rd?
Maddie got 3rd place.
(Girl’s face behind her echoed probably everyone)
Nevermind, I found Gianna
Melissa saying she doesn’t think Maddie ever got third before? What? Is she serious? Lights, camera action! ; Maestro Man (in her division)… Hellen Keller? Forgot what she placed there but didn’t she not get the top 2? Like.. I understand Maddie has been winning first, and/or second A LOT but there was no need to lie.
Group dance got 3rd.
Melissa bringing up that Maddie thinks Abby will be mad at her for getting third.
Sad looking Maddie: Yea, because she got mad at me when my sister beat me. That she didn’t just get second, that she got third.
Sweet Kendall trying to be sweet, “I haven’t won in like. 8 weeks so…”
Eeech… That sounded a bit too much like Abby right there. Maddie just said “yea but i’m Maddie Ziegler and i’m a perfectionist and I like to win so that’s just me” …. I didn’t like the attitude. You can tell that not winning is really getting to her. Which isn’t healthy. Not the way she’s taking it. And I seriously blame Abby for it. Those were Abby’s words. And this child believes them.
Maddie thinks she let down Abby and the whole team because she got 3rd.
Kira said that she and Kalani will go home and get training because she won’t tolerate Abby treating her child like she is.
Oh poor Kalani :( “I’ll try my best not to make it my last but I can’t promise you anything.” Jojo: “yes you can” and the girls are doing a group hug all crying. And it’s so sad :(
