Act V: These Pink Boots Are Made for Walking
June 30

Last time, Emma got a bad case of bronchitis, and being "Serious" on stage was going to be a challenge. It was one she proved to overcome, though, as both Cassie and Celina get cut from the lineup, leaving six dreams alive.

The girls are thrown for a loop when they get word that two people go home. Bailey seriously hoped that Autumn was going to get sent packing... Turns out that she was the ONLY person to come back. She's even more ready to prove herself.


We're heading all the way to Brooklyn, where we're dancing. But first, Emma's still feeling sick. Lauren... doesn't like dancing. This could be problematic for both Emma and Lauren, because as Autumn points out, statistics go that if you go twice, you're done.

Over at John Ryan Theatre (which I don't think is too far from where J-Block stay at), Haylie tells the girls to take their shoes off. They also meet choreographer Denis Jones and assistant Nick Kenkel (who's also in the ensemble).

The work today is all about choreography. Remember to be the girl that everyone wants to look at.

Nick's forte is hip-hop. Bailey thinks that it's hers as well. Autumn thought that Nick was very brutal as a teacher, which you kinda have to be. Meanwhile, Emma is blowing her nose in the corner. The group consensus is that everyone needs to work harder. So imagine what would happen when Denis throws in this wrench.

For those who saw the show... or the movie..s... Elle is not a flats girl (FLATS, not flat)... She likes three-inch stilettos.. So guess what we have for all six of you.... That's right, three-inch stilettos.


And an obstacle course of sorts, including dancing on cobblestone streets... in the freezing cold. Stiletto hell, basically. Especially on Emma, who's still fighting bronchitis. She'll have to sit this one out while the other five go all out.

Natalie looks and feels like a music video superstar, she thinks. Will that be a good thing? Let's go back inside.

Today's standout performer will receive a private yoga lesson with... Kate Shindle ("Vivienne"). That person... is Ms. Video Vixen, Natalie. She picks Rhiannon to go with her.

Now to details on the audition, which will involve the "Shake Your Junk" sequence from the "Positive" scene.

Over at the reward, the girls meet Kate and do some poses. Natalie loves her some yoga. Kate offers this advice: the people who are the most successful are the people who don't play dumb. And if you stop being unsure of yourself, you stop challenging yourself.

Now to learn how to shake our junk. Not only are the girls going to have to learn Elle's part, but also the part of each member of the ensemble. That's six parts they'll have to learn. Is it even possible?

Emma hasn't taken a dance class in five years. It shows.

Rehearsal tonight is cut short in order to challenge the girls to learn the patterns AT HOME.

Call sheet. At night. AT NIGHT?! It's time for another activity, as the girls, who've been judged by judges, are now judged by... themselves.

Enter the "Who's the weakest..." quiz... followed by Rhiannon crying and Natalie calling this the sickest part of the business. Lauren thought that the questionnaire was against her personally.

Autumn decides that if they're going to play the game, they're going to play it their way... so they rewrite the questions...

Who's the weakest singer? = Most improved singer?
Who's the weakest dancer? = Most improved dancer?
Who's the weakest actor? = Most improved actor?
Strongest actor = ... well, that doesn't need changing. Neither does "Best sense of style"
Who's going to win? = Who's shown the most growth?

Autum's the best actor, Natalie's the most improved singer, etc. More "Elle-type" questions included...

- Who has made a marked transformation to become Elle Woods? (Emma & Autumn)
- Who's the most competitive? (Bailey & Autumn)
- Who came back & rocked it after facing the bottom 3? (Lauren)

... They have a future in the business of the show we call game...

Kinda ironic that this week's audition is to the song "Positive".

After that exercise, rehearsal continues... in the positive.

AUDITION: "Shake Your Junk"

We started with 12... we're down to six. After tonight, we're going to have five.

Emma's first up. She looks like she was thinking at the end... but she gets through it... albeit a little out of breath. She admits that she would have to use her understudy because, well... she has bronchitis.

Oh yeah, and she's also not a dancer.

Bailey turns out to be fabulous when she's whipping everyone with her hair. Rhiannon hit it out of the ballpark last week... but this week... not so much. Lauren was "great" from Paul. Bernie was seeing a lot of Elle in her. Autumn was fun and goofy, but definitely under-prepared.

And then Autumn runs off stage... to the bathroom... to toss her cookies. The audition continues without her with Natalie pleasantly surprising the judges and getting on the list RIGHT THEN AND THERE.

So that leaves the other five. Who's staying and who's going to go see the judges later? Does Emma have the stamina? Does Bailey want it enough? Do the judges love Lauren enough? Is Rhiannon goofy enough? And what about Autumn and her ... issues?

Natalie (of course)

That means that Emma and Autumn are heading to...

The Casting Office.

Both girls have been here before. One of them will defy the odds and survive a second cut. Emma is convinced that she gave a performance better than her standing. The fact of the matter is that whether it's bronchitis or throwing up, you have to deliver both the role of a vulnerable blonde and the role of Harvard Law valedictorian from start to finish. There is no room for excuses.

Emma, the confident performer... who needs to shine 100%. Autumn, youthful, but mature... who still needs to surprise with what she could bring to the table.

Autumn... is moving forward. Emma is cut. Autumn tells Emma that she won't disappoint her. Emma... says this sucks. "Lauren and Bailey and Rhiannon are little girls, and I don't understand why it's me and not some of them."

That's probably why. That whole modesty thing. Oh well. Such is life on the Great White Way.
