Yep, she lost me a few years ago when Colby was a TCC. I wasn’t a Colby fan, but Kelli’s comments about her were straight-up junior high clique. Not the measured, thoughtful approach a good director should have.

I have to say that as much as Kelli is a mean girl, her impression of Colby was funny and spot on.  I couldn’t pinpoint exactly what it was about Colby that bugged me so much until Kelli mimicked her “peek a boo” during rehearsal.

I really did get a chuckle out of that.

The thing is, that level of sarcasm should be used very sparingly, and even then should be directed only toward a TCC that everyone already kinda agrees is super-toxic or otherwise non-self-aware.

You know, someone like VK.

Kells and TPTB knew that we heard the Jalyn/VK story.  Either they read it themselves or Shelly or TK/VK told her.  So she KNEW that unless we were given a better, believable story that we would all adjust our minds from it being a rumor to a fact.  They had time to give it some crazy edit and didn't.  So I am going with @Smplsimon and believing that it was a sign to the rest - be afraid, be very afraid.  VK/TK rule, and don't you forget it.

Also to whoever said VK was not her best friends child but her desired child....YES!  And we can throw a few others in there too.  Meredith, brocolli girl who goes to Univ of Tampa now, etc.

Perhaps, but the other four are from the most talented class they’ve had.  Each has distinguished themselves being showcased aesthetically (Rachel W, Ashlee), praised for dance ability (Cici; Ashlee), and for leadership (Caroline ROY).  Caroline has also benefitted from weight loss and improved aesthetics.  She’s clearly talented as she’s KaShara’s pick for point.  

Is there any doubt that the lady formerly known as the teacher who gets confused with Molly was selected #18?

Here's the list. Rachel at 18.  Jalyn at 17 is scratched out. Alexis and Taylor over to the side. Question marks next Ashlee,  Cianna and also Amanda (Kelli had said she didn't have the kicks - yet she made it anyway). I assume VK name is under Judy's hand.

I enjoyed the part where KaShara picked who she thought would be a good point:  Amy! No, wait.... Maddie!  No, wrong again!  Caroline!  😄

I may be alone on this entire post but.......I absolutely love Caroline!!!! She should have been point over all others.....to me anyway. How did k ignore Kash's recommendation. To me she is far more glamorous and camera friendly.  Honestly it makes watching the pregame routine less fun. Geez, I give up.  I barely remember the episodes air most weeks. Blah.....at least we are seeing some of the suggestions from this board come to life. More side by sides, more dancing, more group interactions. One gripe, and this may have been hashed out weeks ago. But it rubbed the wrong way for Kelly to ask about TCs Ancesty results. Like what business of theirs is it. I smell need to claim diversity so desperately.

Eh, I find it hard to get worked up. I don't care who is on SG. Jalyn was understandably upset but running off and not coming back in time for practice isn't a good look. I do wonder what they didn't show in the office. Did Kelli give Jalyn details they did not show? Did Jalyn apologize for her behavior? Who knows? Who cares? The SG they have is good and that's fine with me, with or without any one particular girl. Jalyn wasn't bad but she wasn't anything special either.  Slightly above average dancer, below average looks, average figure, below average professionalism. That adds up to a big ... whatever. She won't be missed on SG and if she doesn't come back next year it won't matter.

Now Kat and Meredith? That's the real mystery of this show.

I have always loved Kelli and how she handles cutting the girls. I’ve always admired how articulate she is and specifically her choice of language - clear and concise. Not always good news, but honest news. 

Unfortunately this is the first episode in 14 years where something just felt “off.”  She seemed particularly upset with the whole Jalyn situation - even defensive. The fact that Judy had to explain to Kelli that there is a difference between “losing” showgroup vs not making show group shows how illogical and irrational Kelli is being.

If a girl wants to step into the locker room to cry or process her feelings, she should be allowed to do that. If Jalyn has remained in the room and teared up or started crying, would Kelli say that is unprofessional too?   What would be the better option?  Honestly, I think excusing yourself when the girls break is better than creating a scene in the dance studio. 

The show sets these girls up for such huge expectations - cuts every week, guest choreographers, fashion shows and photo shoots positioned as “tests”.. and then they are surprised when the girls react with emotion or disappointment.  You’ve physically and mentally exhausted these girls and the critique them if they don’t happen to be smiling or perky for four hours straight.  

This episode was particularly unflattering for Kelli. I hope she watches this in retrospect and recognizes her strange defensiveness and accusatory behavior towards Jalyn. You’d think she just lied to her about a doctors appointment or something!

Yes to all of this! Everything in this episode pertaining to show group was just a complete & utter mess. I was expecting to see some explanation of what we've been hearing went down, but if anything it just made me more confused. Now I don't know if this is due to poor editing or if this stuff wasn't being explained/covered during filming, but either way, it makes it all look very shady & unprofessional.

LOL, actually if you zoom into Jalyn's name, you can see it scratched out with something written in next to it. Is that a "VIC..." next to it?

I was about to post the same. Since there are 18 names with one scratched out, someone’s name is written in there. Sure looks like it starts with a V

Absolutely is a VIC...wtheck...also Jalyn's name is circled which mean she was a pick for SG or in close contention! As far as I concerned the theories about her being replaced by VK are true...disgusting and disgraceful.

Others have already touched on her dancing skills. Below Average looks? That's going to be a hard no from me. I wouldn't even say average. There are/were less attractive DCCs and there were/are girls that were more stunning. However, she's a very pretty girl, the end.

I am done with this show. Season 13 was painful enough to watch with the blatant VK favoritism. I see it now in Season 14 but it’s backhanded favoritism. No way VK should have made SG over Jalyn. 

I feel the same way, but I also feel like VK was given one on one training all year so she would know the dances before auditions and training camp, and I also think judging by all the pictures of her that she is starting to put some weight back on. By seasons end,  I imagine those shorts are not going to look very good on her!

Apologies in advance:  "chart" to follow!

I think the numbers have more to do with the order that they auditioned... If you look at the groups: Victoria, Carol, Amy, Kelcey, Daphne & Amanda are together;  Ashlee's next to Maddie;  Gina's next to Heather;  Cici's next to Bridget; and Jalyn (who is scratched out with a possible "Vic..." written over it) is next to Rachel W.  Also, I zoomed in to one of the pages and the order on it is: Victoria, Carol, Kelcey, Amy, Daphne and Amanda. 

It's interesting that they started this list with Caroline, not Victoria, so that tells me that she was an afterthought---not initially picked.

Impressive! So these are the attention grabbers in order of appearance. Not in order of ability. Yes, confirms Jalyn was originally written in as one an attention grabber. Then removed and Victoria added. Thanks tootle!

That is exactly what i was thinking that Victoria was not picked and then she took Jalyn's spot.  I want to know if Victoria went running to Tina and  tattled on Jalyn and then Tina went after Kelli.  What on earth does Tina have on Kelli that we need to know about?

I'd bet dollars to donuts that the 18 people listed were the selections from the judges panel. Then, Kelli had Judy make a couple of "corrections" (AKA - cut Jalyn & add VK).

Hey, we all have opinions. I think Jalyn is a very good technical dancer but also dull. The opposite of KaShara, if you will. She has a nice figure but so do lots of girls. I personally find her unattractive--her eyes are off and I think she is masculine looking. I don't know what she is like as a person but she gives off an unfriendly vibe to me. Purely subjective of course. I know many disagree but I don't give a hoot. My opinions are mine, yours are yours. Anyway, the people who hire SG don't care who is on it and neither do I, as long they do the job.

One thing that stuck out to me was when Kelli said this--and I quote: "Thank you guys for your time and expertise. We really appreciate your professional lenses.  We'll go back and work through some of the strengths that we know some of these ladies bring to the table and announce this tomorrow."

IIRC, any other time the Show Group deliberations were shown, they seemed to imply that they knew who the final group was that night... they didn't always announce it that night, but they knew who it was and didn't have to "go back and work" it out!

Yes, we talked about this not long ago.  I want to say it was last year that they said they were taking everyone's suggestions to decide upon a team, when like you've said they usually have had an idea that night.  And the theory was that Kelli was going to find a way to fit VK in if she could.

I think it's one unflattering picture and in no one indicative of her overall pretty looks. I think it's telling that there is only one picture in this post. If more people thought she was unattractive, as you do, I think they'd have no problem saying so and there opinions would be as welcome as any. 

Not talking about her attractiveness in this picture.

Off topic re: SG/Jalyn

I am seriously confused about VK.   I mean, TK comes across on this show, even in just the few times she has been shown, as a horrible mean girl.  When she said that about Chandler I wanted to go through my TV and slap her. Maybe all of this is TK's doing and not VK???  VK just seems kinda goofy and immature??? 🤷‍♀️  

I work all day with kids (up to age 22) and some kids are so awesome when I am alone with them, but when the parent is there, it's all a nightmare.  One-on-one the kids usually realize their parent is being difficult?? Is it possible VK was just telling her mom stuff the way kids do and TK ran to Kelli and blew everything out of proportion?  I guess we will never know what really goes on. 

I also wish Kelli would just admit she has no judgement with VK.  Like- I would respect her more if she just said- VK is like a daughter to me, I will try my best to be impartial, but I love her??  Or something like that?? I don't expect Kelli to be a robot, but don't try to fool everyone into thinking there is anything fair about this whole process.  Just own it!

Ok. I am shocked that the organization allowed this picture to stay up. Her nipples show right through! Not her fault, of course. Personally I would not have posted it, at least without some photoshopping.

Other thoughts: Her abs look awesome. She needs to control the hyperextension in her elbow, a common problem in pom. They should make her hair more red.

And that's why I respect her opinion.  She didn't pick seniority OR her best friend.  She was honest and picked who she thought would be the best person for that position!

And by the way she spoke and waited you could tell that she was thinking REAL hard about the decision. She spoke like someone who expected to be taken seriously and knew what the effects of what she said could entail. And that's how it should've been.
