Synopsis

When this life-changing competition kicks off, the 12 finalists are tasked with their first live performance in front of judges. The dancers are split into trios and assigned routines with a "Hollywood" theme. As the contestants prepare throughout the week, the moms start sizing each other up. Alliances begin to form, but when one mom takes charge during rehearsal, the other moms realize that she could be trouble. Plus, one mother and daughter team reveal just how far they're willing to go to win the competition.
