It's the age old Dance Moms question: Who did better, Chloe or Maddie? The fierce competitors were pitted against each other by coach Abby Lee Miller with ballot-box voting by their peers and the moms this week.
Spoiler alert: Maddie beat Chloe.
With the episode centered around politics, it seemed fitting that each mom was lobbying for her own daughter's success. Here's a look at how they handled themselves on the campaign trail.
Kelly: Leave it to her to go rogue! Faced with choosing between Chloe and Maddie, Kelly threw in a wild card: her own daughter Paige. Brilliant!
Holly: When Nia's mom gets riled up she has the unique ability to articulate herself despite her anger. She doesn't resort to mud-slinging but make no mistake, don't mess with Dr. Holly!
Melissa: Maddie's mom gets a bad rep for being too much of a stage mom — she's even considering home-schooling — but at the end of the day she knows her candidate is always going to be the front-runner.
Kristie Ray: The newcomer is still learning but she's scrappy… and a tad over-confident in her daughter Asia's abilities. "I think enough important people know how my child dances."
Christi: Humor goes a long way in politics so Christie is pulling out her best sarcasm for her opponents. "Asia might be a big deal on the Internet, but so is a dog who can bark his ABCs!"
Jill: If you call her daughter Kendall a brat, she will flip her lid. When Abby insulted her kid, it looked like the brown-noser was going to kick some butt. As Jill explains, "At this point it's anybody's game. And nothing is scarier than a Dance Mom under pressure."
