Jackie tells the girls that they will now be performing their dance in front of an audience. Kahlen fears being humiliated. Well, then, let me be the first to tell her that she picked the wrong reality television show to be on. This dance performance is a challenge, and they will be judged by Alfred Hinkle, the director of Jazz Art, and also special guest J. Alexander, who comes dancing out in an orange outfit last seen on Dorothy Zbornak. Yay! It has been too long since our last encounter with Ms. J. The girls get outfitted in their costumes, which are not particularly flattering. Kahlen looks distressed. The seats in the performance space fill up. Backstage, Kahlen says that she hates dancing and hates this challenge. Dancing and the challenge reply, "We hate you too, bitch." She starts to cry, and says that she never wants to dance on stage in front of people, and is frustrated. The combination of tears, outfit, and hair tucked back in her hat serves to highlight her enormous buck teeth and the fact that she's secretly not that pretty. Commercials.
When we return, Keenyah explains that the challenge has to do both with how well the girls have learned their choreography and how well they can move in general. She says that she's going to roll with the challenge and see how she does. The girls crawl around on the stage and then start to dance with the troupe. Each girl gets a solo. Brittany's includes a shimmy, to the surprise of no one. Her arms and legs flail in the manner of Elaine Benes. She interviews that the audience didn't much like her dance, and that she doesn't blame them. See, Brittany knows that she can't dance but has a sense of humor about it, which is what makes her cool. Then comes Kahlen, an intense look in her eyes. She says that she was nervous and uncomfortable, but that she "acted" the whole time. This makes me hate her a little. Brittany interviews that Kahlen never thinks that she "did good," is "doing good," or "does good," but that she always does...good. Well, well, well. Keenyah says that she feels honored and blessed to learn African dance. She says once again that it's important to her and that she's the only black girl. Cut to Naima. She says that she's always been a quiet person, and that dancing gives her an outlet for self-expression that doesn't involve speaking. I wish that Keenyah would get one of those. The crowd cheers. We see a shot of Ms. J in the audience. That man's legs are a wonder. How does he get them so shiny? The performance finishes, and Keenyah says that she feels good about herself.
