Right on cue, we cut to Alexandra, who is dancing with an "oh, shit!" grimace on her face. Her head is down and she appears to be disappointed with every step she takes.
"Nicole is the picture of self-confidence," the narrator tells us. For future reference, if you ever need a picture of yourself representing "self-confidence," all you need is a zebra tank top, black tight pants, and the ability to thrust both your crotch and your ass at the camera at the same time. In a split screen, she tells us that she's incredibly nervous and kept waking up all last night.
"A place in the group could change Curtisha Johnson's whole life." Curtisha is my new favorite auditioner. In a split screen, she tells us that, if she made the group, it would be a blessing: "It would mean I would never have to be a waitress ever again." Curtisha's words, simultaneously uttered along with sixteen thousand other women in the Hollywood area cause a massive sound boom that knocks down power lines and phones for over thirty-five minutes.
More arm thrusting and hip wiggling. The narrator tells us that the girls know they are being watched all the time, so they're trying to keep their emotions under control. "Christina Petty knows this first-hand," he finishes. Christina tells us that she was crying earlier when the piano was playing because she misses home. Damn, I kinda miss Dog, too. With his invisible support system. He's there, but not all up in our shit.
We're reminded again that Alexis is the only one who deserves to be a Popstar because this is her first audition and she wants it so badly. Alexis says something I can't understand at all, and then says she'd have a heart attack if she made it into the group.
Shaunda and Alexis out-sing Aaliyah with each other.
Travis then "ups the ante" by showing the girls actual choreography. They all learn the moves.
Cut to girls in groups of five doing the new dance, complete with mic props. Ana Maria Lombo is the girl with the family band. She's also the girl with a kick-ass body. In a separate room interview, Ana Maria is telling us about her family band. She's wearing the same stuff from episode one's interview, so I'm just going to go out on a limb here and say that Ana Maria probably makes it into Popstars and this is a later interview since they didn't get much tape on her during the initial audition process. There is no other explanation for this boring story she's telling about how she and her sister used to sing Christmas carols for her father.
