Tonight on Lifetime Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition returns with another new episode called, “Fairytales Come to Life.” On this week’s show will Abby be the dancer’s fairy godmother…or evil stepmother? Did you watch last week’s season 2 episode 7? We did and we recapped it right here for you.
On last week’s show Judge Rachelle Rak, a veteran of “The Great White Way,” led the challenge for the “Broadway” themed week and blew the kids and moms away with her sassy moves. The challenge winner’s mom earned the animosity of the others by bragging about her child. The pressure was on for the dancer who chose the first solo of the season…will they triumph.
On tonight’s show the reward for the challenge this week is a private lesson with Abby Lee Miller herself, which some of the kids desperately wants to win… while others would do ANYTHING not to. The pressure of the competition has the moms harping on their children and one mom even sells out her own kid to the judges for not working hard enough. Will Abby be the dancer’s fairy godmother…or evil stepmother?
Tonight’s episode is going to be a drama packed one, which you won’t want to miss. So be sure to tune in for live coverage of Lifetime’s Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition Season 2 episode 7 — tonight at 9PM EST.
