Tonight on Lifetime Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition returns with another new episode called, “Wild West Showdown.” On this week’s show a dancer finally gets the solo her mother has demanded, but will it be her downfall? 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 the reward for the challenge last week was a private lesson with Abby Lee Miller herself, which some of the kids desperately wanted to win… while others would do ANYTHING not to. The pressure of the competition had the moms harping on their children and one mom even sold out her own kid to the judges for not working hard enough.
On tonight’s show it’s “Wild West” week and the dancers face off in Abby’s O.K. Corral. Animosity toward one dancer is building and her mom goes all-out to defend her. Another dancer finally gets the solo her mother has demanded, but will it be her downfall? Her arch-nemesis certainly hopes it will and doesn’t hesitate to say so.
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 8 — tonight at 9PM EST.
