Maddie is portraying Sia as a child in this music video (link below) who was often left home alone by her parents who were musicians and alcoholics (from what I've read). I loved most of the choreography and thought it told the story. I also thought Maddie was very good. I do feel that she is a little robotic and doesn't have the expression that Chloe possesses, but she is young and maybe it will come.

Tuesday night is a new episode called Maddie vs Chloe or something of that nature. My thought is it's going to be a rehash episode, but maybe they'll have new material. I do think the producers are playing an exaggerated angle of lost friendship and mean girl behavior. I noticed in the girls' interview show a couple of weeks ago, in the first segment when Chloe said something about she and Maddie being such close friends, the camera cut to shot of Maddie sort of rolling her eyes to Mia. There's no way to know if it was taken out of context, especially because throughout the show, it seemed like the girls had a mutual friendship. Personally, I think the show is trying to play this up to have the audience root for Chloe as the underdog. Having read that Chloe dances for another studio now (which was why she wasn't in MacZ's video), I imagine this drives Abby crazy, which makes me happy.
One other bit of gossip I read was that the fans of DWTS on Facebook are blasting Abby from when she was a guest judge. I took a look-see, and they certainly are giving it to her with both barrels. Of course, all the hubbub is probably good for Abby, at least as far as the show's producers are concerned. A good (or would that be bad) villain brings in viewers, and I'm sure that's their bottom line.
