She's been repeating the phrase "everyone is replaceable" every five minutes this series, but in this week's Dance Moms, fearsome dance school teacher Abby Lee Miller finally followed through on her word and announced she would be holding open auditions to find new talent - meaning some of her girls faced the chop. Cue nervous dancers, horrified moms, and a whole lot of drama. Here are the highlights from episode 3...
1. Abby annouces she will be holding open auditions in Orlando
As you can see, it went down well.
2. Abby asks the moms to tweet about the open auditions.
Again, it goes down well. "We're not tweeting about a replacement for our girls, because that's a little awkward," reasons Holly.
3. Krazy Kelly
"If Abby didn't suck the joy out of everything Brooke did, maybe we should perform better." Kelly is tired of Abby's put downs, and we predict she'll snap pretty soon. There's certainly something crazy going on behind those eyes.
4. Payton's pain
After being told off for crying over her hair in the last episode, Payton now has a legitimate reason - she falls and is in such pain she has to be stretchered out. Ouch.
5. The trio come second.
That's brilliant news, well done girls. Oh hang on, Abby doesn't look too happy about this (although at least she's not asleep, unlike the lad behind).
6. Pre-teen pep talk
Anyone would think these girls were scared of Abby or something...
