    Season 21: Live Feed Discussion

    I kinda hope that to guarantee their safety for a week, only the 4 in Camp Comeback can play for HoH and then the winner is who comes back.

    Season 21: Live Feed Discussion

    I came back to Ovi begging the viewers to vote for him if coming back includes a vote from America. Sorry, dude, but David has my vote.
  3. I'd like to be kidding. I have a few sources from a few different angles and they don't always share the same info, this one seems to be similar across all channels which is when I start believing it. I want them to be wrong on this one though...I really, really do.
  4. They plan on taking rookies this year from the word on the street.

    Why? It's not a lie. Mackenzie's dance training stopped by the time she was 6 years old. The idea of her doing a pretty lyrical/contemporary routine with almost no ballet foundation is why her rendition of Cry was awful. Mackenzie, on the other hand, shined when she was given acro and hip-hop dances because those were her stronger genre's. The good thing about Dance Moms is it gave the girls' recognition, the bad thing about Dance Moms is that it essentially froze their dance training. To become a great dancer, you can never stop learning and all of them did. No one from the show, not even Maddie, would have been able to leave the show, move to LA and start booking consistent dance jobs because they would easily be out-danced. Maddie had a 1 in a Billion lightning strike come her way to which Mackenzie benefited from because it pulled Melissa from Abby and into an actual talent agency. Jessalynn also saw the writing on the wall, realized she could market Jojo and got her into the doors of Nickelodeon at a great time. Everyone else? They're back to relatively normal lives.
  6. That isn't a competitive piece which is what I was looking for---her, at a competition, with a team. This was more or less a recital for National Dance Day and for a senior level piece, beyond basic.
  7. From the little research I have done, I haven't found any videos of Vikkie dancing with a group or team. I know she didn't try out for her high school teams, never did competitive cheer and all of her videos from competitions with her studio are solos. BUT, Vikkie did grow up going to intensives and conventions so she has danced around other people before and should have a better concept of spacing just based on her age. That said, she could have gone into the conventions like Miley Cyrus on a wrecking ball in order to knock out anyone else who would garner attention away from her.../shrug
  8. Kitty is a witch---plain and simple. Sure, her antics make for great reality television, but at the end of the day, she's a hate filled hag who gets off on putting people down. #SorryNotSorry
  9. If they're not Texas bred, they need to at least respect Kitty's opinion, ask her for advice, pay for her prep classes...etc. All 3 of these examples did so. And, you can do everything right and she still throw you under the bus---ie. Madeline M.
  10. By the time Kitty came in, Show Group had already been named and Kitty wasn't a judge so perhaps Kelli shot herself in the foot by putting her on Show Group. Traditionally, being invited to show groups means you're guaranteed a spot---even if you make a large error like Amber did during media training. What got a counseling got Taylor cut.

    Maddie, technique wise, is mediocre. What worked in Maddie's favor is that she is a natural actress and has such an expressive face that she was able to project the various characters she was asked to play. That is what drew Sia to her; not her dance technique. In the beginning, Brooke, Maddie and Chloe were the strongest trained dancer, but as the show became a job their training also stopped. They could hang in the mini division; they could not hang in the senior one.
  12. People like Vikkie don't have the self-awareness to understand that she will never be a DCC on her own merit or talent. If she actually understood and could internalize what those around her see, she'd probably shut down emotionally because I don't think she has the coping skills to handle it. If you can not stand to be told technique critiques in a dance studio, you definitely can not handle being told that you are a toxic mean girl that people only pretend to like and support so they stay on your good side. People like to harp on the up and coming generation for their entitled attitude, lack of work ethic, need for constant praise, inflated sense of self worth and arrogance...Vikkie would make the perfect poster child of everything people hate about her generation. Or cut..I'd be down for a cut.

    None of the OGs are great dancers in terms of technique or skill, tbh. They did go to a studio that did well at competitions, but after Season 1 a lot of real, well known competition stopped allowing filming because they manipulated the scores/places for TV. By Season 2, no real competition let them in so from about Season 3 on they go to competitions that are 'casted'. Meaning the audience is paying to watch the episode and they invite a few local studios to come and dance.
  14. That's funny...you actually think Vikkie is going to have a real job? No way. She'll DCC until engagement, get married, have kids and live off her husband until she dies or the alimony is enough to live on. To be on a top college team---which her mom would never allow less than---Vikkie would have to actually be a good dancer. Sad fact, she'd never make it. And it only takes 1 or 2 cheerleaders of the group before it tumbles. I guarantee you that there is 1 or 2 Vets that are reassuring everyone, helping everyone cope, building everyone up...if either of those 2 people crack, it'll all fall. Then it becomes, "If X has had enough, I can't cope with this." Classic group mentality. Kelli clearly didn't take psychology or sociology classes in college...wait, did Kelli go to college? Keyboard!
