  • A Beautiful painful runway.

    9.0
    This was a very good episode, although I must say the usual "offstage" banter between the girls was a little lax this week. The Soul Train dance off was pit crew looked like a pair of 70's porn stars doing the Harlem Shake in the background.



    I was quite taken with Coco's decision to add Alyssa to her team, but I completely agree with her reason. Good on her for finally showing some "adult" behavior and maybe both of them can work past their differences.



    The Ballet was funny and beautiful. Alaska KILLED with her Mama Ru (Ernestine) and I think she was more than safe. Alyssa really shined and showed her talent.



    ***SPOILERS BELOW***



    I 100% agree with Ru's decision on the runway. Neither girl deserved to stay after that lackluster performance during the Lip Sync. It's Britney Spears for goodness sake. Shake your booty!!moreless
