"Nia vs. Kalani: Winner Takes All" is the thirtieth episode of the fifth season of Dance Moms. It first aired on August 4, 2015.

Note: A special episode Throwback Tuesday: Kendall & Jill aired immediately after this episode.


With only one week left until Nationals, the ALDC is facing the super talented MDP who are bringing their best routine yet. Abby gives Kalani and Nia head-to-head solos to determine who will get the senior division solo next week. On top of prepping for this battle, Nia is really feeling the pressure as she is also shooting her second music video, hoping to cement her status as a pop star. Will she be able to balance both?
