On the Dance Moms episode “The Girls Say Goodbye,” Jai Rodriguez hosts a farewell get-together for superstar dancers Maddie Ziegler and her little sister Mackenzie Ziegler who are leaving the show and Abby Lee Miller’s ALDC. It’s going to be a tear-jerker as the Zieglers will say goodbye not to their friends, but their sisters. While Maddie says, “I can’t imagine life without you,” she has technically moved on. Maddie will join the panel of judges on So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation, which premieres May 30 (8pm, FOX).
Jai Rodriguez is recognized as the culture guide on Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Since then, as an actor, he’s landed roles on the TV shows How I Met Your Mother (Tom) and Malibu Country (as Geoffrey) starring Reba McEntire and Lily Tomlin, among others. The special Dance Moms farewell airs Tuesday, May 17 at 9pm on Lifetime.
