Of all the girls, I think Maddie is really the only one I see who could definitely have a career in dance. She has the drive and the ability. It's just a question of whether the adults in her life ruin it for her. I danced with girls who were really good and loved dancing until the adults in their lives pushed them too hard and took all the enjoyment out of it.
That guy Abby went on the date with was CREEEEEPY. He totally just wanted to be on TV. He had no interest in Abby. I was a bit disturbed by her flirting. Way over-the-top. I guess we know now why they didn't follow-up on the whole speed dating thing last week - no one was interested. I'm not surprised. Every man who sat across the table from her looked pretty alarmed.
I liked the hip hop number. If they'd had more than 3 days of rehearsal, they probably could have won. When will Abby understand that the reason they're not coming in first isn't because the girls don't want it badly enough, but because they simply need more rehearsal time? When I competed in those types of competitions, it was with routines we'd been doing for MONTHS. While professional dancers can pick up things more quickly, when you're young, you need more time for the steps to become almost a muscle memory so you can focus on the performance aspects of the routine. No matter what Abby does, Kendall's face is just going to be dead because she's focusing on remembering the steps.
Maddie really stood out in that hip hop routine. Any time they did a long shot of them all on stage it was Maddie who was really emoting and selling it.
If Jill really cares about getting Kendall to the top, she'd get that kid into ballet classes to work on her technique. Maybe she is, but if so, it's sure not showing.
