The crowd is set and J. whoops as the dancers start to come down a set of stairs. The pros go first, and then there's Molly. She looks kind of stiff and scared, and then when she's almost down to the bottom of the staircase she trips on her skirt and some items from her tray go flying. I think the candles must be really stuck in there, though, since they don't go anywhere. Molly is so angry at this point that she ignores Miss J.'s advice to try to be cute if items fall off of the tray. She isn't interested in picking anything up from the floor, and just walks off with the tray and few remaining items on her head. Miss J. tells us that when Molly tripped her face became tight and a bit angry. Who could even tell the difference from her regular face? Anyway, her face stayed that way and it was not good.
Brittani is next, and though we expect the worst, she rocks it. Noor says that it was a transformation, and she didn't fall down at all or drop her tray. She totally can move, too! Meanwhile, Molly sulks backstage. She says that she hates looking like an idiot, and in this situation she totally looked like an idiot. She's humiliated, and also pissed off. She hates hearing the applause for the others, since she sucked so bad and barely got any. She sips her cup of sour grapes tea and scowls. Hannah is next, and while she doesn't drop her tray, she doesn't exactly nail the dance. She sort of waves her arms around for a while, which is maybe the best we can hope for.
Finally, there's Alexandria. She does seem quite adept at this challenge, and Noor tells us that she was very powerful. The other girls seem to think that her victory is a foregone conclusion. Alexandria does a turn in the middle of the crowd, and Molly points out that she's doing well but it's unfair given how flat the top of her head is. Alexandria gets a little sassy with her dance, and then her tray comes crashing down. One awesome lady in the crowd is like, "Bitch, please." Alexandria tries to be cute in picking up her fallen items, and the tray falls again. She finally gets a guy to put the teapot back on her head while she kneels down. Alexandria tells us that most of all, she was really memorable, and she smiled through the whole thing. Even if that place went up in flames, Alexandria would have her cheesy grin throughout and then tell us that ashes are very therapeutic. Miss J. says that Alexandria got overconfident when she felt the audience getting into her. She did that one thing extra, which did not work out so well.
