Abby Lee Miller’s favorite dancer, Maddie Ziegler, leaves Abby’s Pittsburgh dance studio for Los Angeles. Maddie has become pop singer Sia’s dancer of choice for her music videos, including her most recent Elastic Heart, with Hollywood actor Shia LaBouf. But the ultimate dance competition show in Pittsburgh must go on. So Abby brings in a familiar face to take Maddie’s place – JoJo with the BowBow.
Abby says JoJo has the charisma and the energy, and she’s dynamite on stage. “She want it!” says Abby. But she’s also using JoJo to fire the team up. While fellow dancer Nia and her mother Holly aren’t pleased with Abby’s decision (to give JoJo the second solo in the competition), Dance Moms fans can’t wait to see JoJo again. As Melany Gilmore writes: “Love JoJo…she may actually make the show worth watching again.” Dance Moms airs Tuesdays on Lifetime at 9pm.
