Laurieann Gibson wanted the girls to try and push themselves so that they can get better results in the competitions, but with the mothers still undermining her every move, did she give up?
That thought definitely crossed her mind, but she had other things on her mind. Nationals were just six weeks away, so it was time to right the ship and ensure some wins for the ALDC.
When Dance Moms Season 7 Episode 20 got underway, the moms worried that they were going to look like idiots for bringing Laurieann in. The reason?
Because Abby was better.
Despite all of the arguing, Abby somehow always managed to get the girls to perform.
Laurieann did not want to take the blame for the losing streak, so it was obvious she was going to blame everything but her choreography. We get it; it's difficult to admit defeat.
Ashlee decided to quiz Laurieann to find out how she was going to help the girls pull out a win, but Laurieann felt like she had done all she could to help them, and it was down to the girls to take the feedback on board.
Kalani and Nia were told that they would be performing a duet titled "I Got No Fear," while Kendall and Bryn joined forces for "The Finish Line."
The dance teacher then dropped the bomb that the minis would not be participating this round, and not everyone was amused by the news.
Yolanda fumed because she felt like Laurieann was good for the ALDC, but leaving kids out of competitions was not washing well with her.
The mothers had mixed emotions about Laurieann, for sure. But were they prepared to let her stick around long-term? That appeared to be the bigger question.
Ashlee's main issue seemed to be that Kalani and Nia have always been given better routines and privileges. If you watch Dance Moms online, we think it's fair to say that most would come to that conclusion.
When the rehearsals kicked off, Laurieann started to get the sense that Nia may not be the best person to be part of the duet.
So, she brought Camryn in to see if there was any way she would flow better with Kalani for the duet. In the end, Nia was nixed from the performance.
Laurieann was even worried about the group number because it seemed to her that the girls were just done. They did not understand that they needed a win to prove they are still a force to be reckoned with.
When the moms trashed Kendall and Brynn's duet, Laurieann realized there was no way she was ever going win the moms over, and the $hit hit the fan.
She revealed some of the people she had worked for in the past in an attempt to wow the mothers, but they were not happy about it. Instead, they laughed at her.
Will they break Abby out of jail?
In Las Vegas, the drama went into overdrive when Camille forgot to pack Camryn's dress. This resulted in Laurieann yelling for a good few minutes about how silly all of the people are.
When Laurieann decided it was time for consequences, she pulled Camryn out of the competition, but then everyone went ham, so she let her stay put.
Laurieann then dragged the moms for thinking they were something big because of all of the people on social media who follow their every move.
Her biggest issue with the performances is that the girls are taught to act like celebrities and notes that it will all come crashing down.
The group dance came in third place, Brynn & Kendall's duet came in second place, but Kalani and Camryn snagged a first place finish.
But Laurieann was not happy. She chased some dude named Alex to get the scores because she felt like her girls were robbed out of a win.
It's almost like Abby never left, you guys.
What do you think of all the drama?
