Dance Moms Season 7 returns with an all-new episode, Tuesday, December 20, with “Winner Takes All.” According to the official synopsis and latest spoilers, Abby Lee Miller will finally make the dreaded cut on ALDC in episode 4. Two dancers from the mini team, Elliana Walmsley and Lilliana Ketchman will also be returning this week, following the alleged disbandment of the minis.
Based on the promo for the next episode of Dance Moms Season 7, Abby Lee Miller is ready to decide who among the remaining ALDC dancers will stay on the team. It seems like one of the newcomers, Daviana Fletcher, Camryn Bridges, Elliana Walmsley, or Lilliana Ketchman, is not coming back after episode 4.
“If you don’t win, you’re not cut out for this team. This is going to be the showdown everyone’s been waiting for,” Abby said.
Spoilers for Dance Moms Season 7 Episode 4 teased that Kalani Hilliker will be competing with Daviana in “one of the toughest head-to-head solo showdowns ever.” Daviana, however, does not seem confident with her lyrical routine, titled “TBA.”
“It’s set up to lose,” Daviana told her mother, Fernanda.
During the Season 7 premiere of Dance Moms, Abby announced that she’s cutting members of the team who were “holding them back.” The ALDC coach explained that she wanted the team to return to its glory days, back when they were winning competitions 14 times in a row. In the end, she postponed making her decision, saying that she was not ready to make such an awful choice so soon.
The following episode, Abby revealed that she’s not going to cut any of the junior elite team members. Even if she had a falling out with Kalani Hilliker, Nia Frazier, Brynn Rumfallo, and Kendall Vertes, Abby loved these girls too much to let them go.
“I’m really happy that Abby’s not gonna cut any of the elites because we’ve been here for a very very long time, even though it was kind of a struggle for us to come back. But I think that we all want to be here and I just wanna stay,” Kalani told the cameras.
Although she also felt an emotional connection to the minis, Abby knew that she needed to cut some of them in order to form a cohesive team. With Elliana and Lilliana returning in episode 4, could this mean that they were given permanent spots in ALDC?
The synopsis from Lifetime also confirmed that Abby actually made cuts this time around.
“I’m standing by my word. You are cut from my dance company,” she told the unknown dancer.
A few fans predicted that Daviana Fletcher may end up losing her spot in ALDC, which is a shame considering Abby told them last week that if they won first place, she would consider making Daviana and Camryn regulars. The moms also seemed to think that Daviana and Camryn are good additions to the team.
“On some level, Abby realizes that those little ones are not rival for these guys. These guys, these two she brought in, are probably way more likely to push them than any eight years old possibly can,” Ashlee Allen, Brynn’s mom said.
The moms pointed out that with the minis gone, Abby can now focus all her attention to the junior elite team. They will also be given a chance to perform more mature, age appropriate dance numbers. After winning their first group routine in a while, the Dance Moms stars felt that they were able to find the perfect team.
“We are back. I think it showed that we don’t need those minis,. The sky is the limit with this group,” Jill Vertes said.
