Other Information Hello Hollywood, Goodbye Abby

  • Abby seemed to have been absent from the audience during the competition performances.[6][7]
  • Kalani spent time with the team in Los Angeles; some of their time was spent working on their various clothing-line projects. JoJo also traveled to California;[8] she was with the ALDC at the competition, but did not perform. All the girls seem to have auditioned for a Ubisoft/Disney project.[9]
  • The Rage Entertainment Complex (McKenzie Morales and Gavin Morales studio) was there.
  • The Murrieta Dance Project is the home studio of Erin Babbs, Talia Seitel and Keara Nichols. It can be expected to serve as a rival to the ALDC in this episode, based on a Season 5 video preview.
  • Kalani and Maddie both got perfect scores for their solos,[10] while Gavin got a 299.[11]
  • McKenzie had the stomach flu, but still competed a solo and with a group.[12]
  • Energy rules for age divisions can be found here. "Judges will be asked to break all ties." Overalls for mixed age categories is by now "normal" for purposes of the show, but would not be done otherwise.[13]
  • A Sheer Talent competition coincided with master class in Monterrey, Mexico, on November 9 [14][15]
  • 1500 tickets were sold at Mexico master classes, priced at $79 (1069.50 pesos),[16][17] thus grossing $118,500.

Other Information Nia Risks It All

  • Haley Huelsman, Kaeli Ware, Tea' Adamson, Sarah Reasons, and Club Dance (Kalani and Sarah's home studio) attended the competition. Kaeli seemed to already be in L.A. for reasons unrelated to Dance Moms, but performed her solo as a member of the ALDC.
  • Nia attended the competition but is not in the group number.
  • Like with the previous episode, Kalani spent some time in Arizona early in the week, before making the comparatively short trip back to Los Angeles.
  • Payton also went to L.A. this week, taking classes with the rest of the team from Mark Meismer and Jaclyn Betham. She performed a solo though it was not judged. It was a showcase performance as she had previously won a title for Sheer Talent and is ineligible to compete; she will be handing out awards.
  • Most of the dancers at Club Dance have solos.
  • Kendall's music stopped during her second solo performance.[19]
  • During the week, Tea' Adamson and Sarah Reasons were filming for an ABC show, Fresh Off the Boat.[20][21]
  • An Instagram account with what seem to be original videos and pictures from the competition delivered rumors about the producers wishing to replace most of the cast; and also that the producers had pushed through changes as to which dancers performed in the different group dances at nationals at the end of the fourth season.
  • Alexa Moffett is credited as both teacher and choreographer for all Club Dance routines, excepting that Molly Long is listed as the choreographer for "Bang Bang."
  • "OPEN CALL AUDITIONS in LOS ANGELES, CA," Collins Avenue and Bryan Stinson casting are looking for dancers and moms for Season 5.
    • According to a comment by Abby, "This is not my audition. I'm not picking anyone from this - I will be auditioning soon, keep watching my website!"
    • Nevertheless, the entry form does include questions like: "Why do you want your kid to be a member of the elite dance competition team on Dance Moms?"; "Are you afraid of Abby Lee Miller? Why or why not?"; and "How do you feel about Abby Lee Millers teaching methods?"
    • A photo[22] of a select group from auditions shows dancers already on the show, plus Ashtin Roth, Chloe Smith, Tessa Wilkinson, Sarina Jassy (AUDC), Brynn Rumfallo, Sarah Reasons, and about half a dozen others (of less certain identification).

Other Information Season 5 Episode 7

  • On Monday Nov 17, Mackenzie (Mack Z) released a holiday song, "Christmas All Year Long." On Nov 20, Billboard premiered the music video with accompanying article.
  • Maddie in photo spread article for Elle. (A second Elle gallery.) Maddie has been away from the team during the week, cast to appear in Austin & Ally. She didn't dance this week. (Diana Kaz @ddkaz worked with Elle photographer Olivia Bee.)
  • Sarah Reasons has been with the team throughout the week, including her birthday on Friday. Also with the team has been Brynn Rumfallo (like Kalani and Sarah R., from Club Dance.)
  • Mackenzie and JoJo's duet and makeup is inspired by 1950's black-and-white television show I Love Lucy.
  • One of the ALDC group dances is inspired by Moulin Rouge, and more specifically the "Lady Marmalade" music video tie-in, performed by Christina Aguilera (JoJo), Lil' Kim (Nia), Mya (Mackenzie), and Pink (Kendall.) Another ALDC group dance is inspired by clowns.
  • The event was more secretive than usual, and this may be undermining the relative reliability of some spoilers. Additionally there are many conflicting reports about the girls resutls. At first it was believe the routines did not place but photos show the girls collecting awards and witnesses claim the girls did place.
  • A music video seems to have been privately recorded just before leaving L.A.

  • Kalani's music cut during her second, un-judged performance[23] of her solo. The "music was messing up all day but KALANI was the only one to keep dancing."[24]
  • Kalani wasn't in the judged version of "The Domino Effect" group dance, but she was part of the second un-judged performance.[25] This appears to be why the group dance is in junior in official results (similar to the suggestion of replacing Nia with JoJo in Bye Bye Pittsburgh.)
  • A news article concerning the competition mentions that "the crew coached the audience in appropriate cheering reactions."
  • Information and links to WCTE age classifications. Kendall was 11 years old at the competition (turning 12 on December 9th, 2014). The average age of the six group dancers with Kalani would be 11.00 years old, if calculated from January 1, 2014; and 12.00, if calculated from January 1, 2015.
  • ALDC members (including minis, seniors, etc) toured NYC on Sunday, and went to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular.[26]

  • Sia announced on Twitter that Maddie will be performing on Saturday Night Live (this Saturday), however she did attend the competition.
  • The group dance, thought to be based on the board game Clue, and had each girl wearing a different colored head piece:

    • Mackenzie in white
    • Maddie in yellow

  • Cathy had made tabloid headlines already by Thursday. Following the release of a second Sia video with Maddie, Cathy was quoted in TMZ as calling it "vile," and that she "nearly threw up." Cathy further added, "I am flabbergasted Melissa would go to the levels she is going to get her daughter famous."
  • There was a moms fight in the seated audience, because Melanie (Haley's mother) seemed to say that Haley is better than Maddie, followed by criticizing a Sia music video.[52] Jessalynn (JoJo's mom) got the audience to cheer for Maddie in the video. Severe fighting also seems to have occurred between Cathy and Jessalynn in a dressing room.[53]
  • The new CADC dancers seems to have been among those who auditioned in Los Angeles in mid-November; but who were too old to potentially aid in bringing back down the average age of the "Junior" Elite team.[54]. At least several have past histories with Abby (AUDC or guest of ALDC.)
