(gentle music) – I’d love to be a fly on that wall. (laughs) Now the judges are deliberating and I think this is a really hard part of the day It’s scary waiting to know if your number’s gonna be on that board – Turn one, two – I’ve danced for about 20 years now, and I, for some reason, cannot pick up this choreography – Hi, my name is Christina Catherine, and I’m 25 years old from Fort Worth, Texas I’ve been dancing since I was two My background is ballet and it was one of my favorite things ever When I was 15, my parents divorced Everything kind of crumbled beneath me, and I just kind of became lost, and I went into this depression I didn’t want to go to dance and I just, one day just quit After high school, I completely got out of my depression and dance was my absolute salvation I am now teaching at the exact same studio that I grew up dancing – Like that, do it again – Want to become a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader because it would validate my choice to have a career in dance (gentle music) There’s a few steps I missed, but I put everything out there and I hope that they saw that today, that I want this so bad – Okay, we are now at the point where we want to go through our judges books and discuss each candidate And let’s start with number 17, Christina, from Fort Worth, Texas I have a check plus plus on the kicks on appearance and figure I have looks like a DCC – And I had just the opposite I had her minus on the kicks (suspenseful music) – Kelli is about to come out and announce the finalist, and I am just crossing my fingers that she calls my name (applause) – Welcome to finals, number 17, Christina (upbeat music) – Grind, grind, grind Show me that, yes! Why, what is that? Why’d I have to bring that out of your arm pit? – This could be the next step in my life This could change my life today – Number seven, from Fort Worth, Texas, Christina (upbeat music) – During the solo, I thought she did well and showed technique, but then she got lost in the group I thought she looked a little sloppy – We’ll see how she falls Welcome to training camp, number seven, Christina from Fort Worth, Texas (upbeat music) – So how are y’alls his bodies feeling today? Are you all sore? (group mutters in agreement) – Can you guys believe how fast they taught that? Especially when Judy was like, let’s pick it up – I think we just get nervous in front of them Like, there’s a fear of like, if we’re not picking it up immediately, like Kelli’s looking at us (laughing) – No pressure – Don’t mess up – Does anyone thin tonight’s gonna be a cut night? (suspenseful music) – You never know You never know when it’s gonna be your last night It could be tonight (suspenseful music) So we have to completely just perform the choreography that they taught us and show Kelli and Judy that we can learn it – I pulled Christina out of rehearsal today, just ’cause I noticed she was struggling a little bit I want the girls to feel like I’m kind of their safety zone I want them to feel they can come to me with things they’re scared to tell Judy and Kelli I mean, how’s it goin’, night one? – I pulled my hamstring I think in auditions Judy said last night my kicks were tight – Judy noticed? – Mhm Do I say something? Here’s the thing, if they don’t know what’s wrong and they’re critiquing you, in their mind that’s just an X – Tonight, I should just waltz up there, and just be like, “Hey, I have to tell y’all something?” – I think you should – And just say- – It’s a scary room, absolutely, but, again, they wanna know, and you need to tell them – I definitely don’t want to put a target on my back, but I just kind of want to let them know that I’m trying and I’m willing to do anything it takes to get this healed so I can kick like a DCC (upbeat music) – Christina’s kicks were still tight – Oh my God, she is really in plie Do you see it? – Yeah, I do – [Judy] So there are some you that are tighter than others – Who’s injured with hamstrings now? I’m a little bit nervous to tell Judy and Kelli about my hamstring that I pulled, but Melissa told me that I need to let them know what’s going on It doesn’t really feel injured anymore, it just feels tight So I’m just trying to really go about it the right way and stretch – Can you do left splits? – Mhm – Show us (suspenseful music) Is that comfortable, or is it burning? – It’s not burning – That’s what position you’re in, when in a left high kick – With your toe pointed – With a pointed toe, yes – I am gonna really work towards fixing this hamstring and just getting flexible and kicking myself in the head – Good job tonight I’m gonna call out a few names that I need to see my office Hannah, Veronica, Alexandra, and Christina, and then everybody else is good night, and we’ll see you on Monday – Yes ma’am – Okay? – Being called in the office on the second night isn’t what you wanna hear
– Christina – I don’t wanna cry. (laughs) – Hi – Hi – Have a seat I wanted in a calm environment ’cause when we talked out there it was kind of spontaneous Tell us about your injury situation Are you in pain? – No, that’s the thing It’s like, I’m just tight – When you do the splits, does it hurt? – It’s not comfortable, but it’s not like I’m like, “Oh, I have to get out,” you know what I mean? – I thought something was going wrong, and then you mentioned your injury and that could explain why you were going into plie ’cause it hurt – Yeah it’s like, I felt like it would get it up higher To be honest, I’ve always kind of struggled with flexibility I’ve never been able to kick myself in the head, but I don’t think that my kicks I’ve ever been bad, they’re just not great – Your kick technique is wrong (suspenseful music) – Okay, I didn’t even realize I guess, but I guess I’ve just been practicing it wrong, honestly I’m willing to do anything – Now, I know and you mentioned that in your interview and we like that in your attitude But I mean it’s a lot for a short amount of time You’ve got your work cut out for you – I’m gonna go home and practice – So you give it your best shot, we’ll give you our best opportunity and we’ll take it from there – Okay, thank you – Okay, good night – I’m gonna show Kelli and Judy on Monday that I can do the choreography that we learned I’m gonna practice all weekend I’m gonna stretch and just really, really try to improve kicks – I don’t think she can do it this year – No, I don’t either – Alexandra, Ashley, Christina, and Kayla ♪ I like crazy, foolish, stupid ♪ ♪ Party going wild, fist pumping music ♪ ♪ I might lose it ♪ ♪ Blast to the roof ♪ ♪ That how we do’s it, do’s it, do’s it ♪ Christina uses her floor, but almost too much ♪ Shut them down in the club ♪ Look, she can’t stay in line ♪ Get loose, loose ♪ ♪ Out the bottle, we all get bent and again tomorrow ♪ ♪ Gotta break loose cause that’s the motto ♪ ♪ The club’s shut down, a hundred super models ♪ – Christine I think you’re dancing too soft I think you’re a little pastel, but you have a gorgeous smile (suspenseful music) – Let’s see group one with kicks – I hadn’t even got my phone updated – On Monday, I kicked and I had sharp pain (suspenseful music) It feels a little strained again – You need to kick to the side if you’re not gonna do the jump split because- – Okay – It’ll pull the rest of the group down, but you need to do it as full as you can to show us – We want to protect against injury, but we also have to be able to see them doing the choreography to keep them in training camp Why are we even considering them if they’re always injured Seriously, I don’t know ♪ Baby I been, I been prayin’ hard ♪ ♪ Said no more counting dollars ♪ ♪ We’ll be counting stars ♪ – Here’s who I need to see in my office, Christina and Vivian and everybody else is free to go (suspenseful music) – It’s never a good feeling to be called in – Christina – But I’m not gonna think negatively about this Maybe they’re just going to try and give me more notes to fix, so we’ll see – Hi Christina – Hi – Our concerns at auditions were low kicks, no splits, feet flex, just some things about the kicking The good news is, is we’ve gotten to know you as a performer and we like you The reality is though that training camp is designed for us to bring someone in and see them get better And you haven’t gotten better in that department, I think because of this preexisting injury And so it’s time for us to make these decisions (suspenseful music) So we think we think we should release you from this training camp and encourage you to come back next year when you have healthy legs – Is there any way that you would reconsider and just give me a little bit more time My muscles kind of freaked out and just went like that, but I think this is a fixable thing and I just wish I could have a little bit more time, ’cause I really think that I was made for this team and I can do it – Well (suspenseful music) I’m sorry, the decision is final and tonight will be your last night (gentle acoustic guitar music) – Your charm has been your personality
and it’s just one heartbreaking injury that I think you can really take it slow and work on for a year and come back – Well, thank you for everything – I’m sorry – And giving me a chance, and y’all are gonna have a great squad this year So thank you so much – Thank you – Okay, good night – Sorry Why is it always the sweet ones? (gentle music) – I’m just thinking back at that first day when all those girls are there I’m excited To make it this far, it’s just an honor It’s like the most mentally and physically most difficult thing I’ve ever done, but it was so worth it (gentle music) This isn’t the end of the world I’m sad, but it’s okay It was just my kicks Stupid muscle – [Group] Group hug (upbeat) – Last year I made it into training camp I was cut because of an injury ♪ Yeah, let’s cause a party like we don’t care ♪ I came back because I have unfinished business to take care of. (laughs) I have been a training camp candidate before I want to be given another chance It’s something that I just had to give one more shot ’cause I think I really am a good fit for this team (cheering) I’m so relieved, I’m excited I hope they still see something in me I really do. and so I’m glad they’re giving me another chance, at least through this round – Welcome back number seven, Christina (applauding) – Three years ago, last time I was in training camp, I pulled my hamstring on my right side, which is the jump split side You have to do the jump split correctly because if you land wrong, there goes your hamstring You could hurt your hip, you could hurt your lower back ♪ Just a touch of your love is enough ♪ ♪ To knock me off of my feet all week ♪ ♪ Just a touch of your love, hey, hey ♪ ♪ Just a touch of your love, hey, hey ♪ – I’m enjoying Christina ♪ Is enough to take control of my whole body ♪ ♪ Just a touch of your love, hey, hey ♪ ♪ Just a touch of your love ♪ – Celinda looks just average ♪ My whole week, my whole week is golden ♪ – You seem pretty strong and confident What’s your name? – Christina – Yeah, you seem pretty strong and confident (cheering) (upbeat music) – [Judy] Christina looks tired (upbeat music) ♪ We ain’t comin’ home tonight ♪ There’s something that’s alarming that she’s so out of breath – Okay, lot of work today It’s different on the field, yes? – [Group] Yes ma’am – There are four more cuts to make, four more dream ending conversations that I get to MC, and it’s difficult Okay, here’s what I need to see in my office, if you’ll stay back, Christina and Taryn, if you all will stay back Thank you, good work, and we will see out tomorrow (light music) – Christina – You know, to be honest, I’m not really sure what this will be about We are at the end of training camp and there are still more cuts to be made So that is something that is in the back of my head – Hello – Hello – How are y’all? – Good, and you? – I’m good, thank you – Tonight, we noticed you were getting winded like after one routine – You know what I- – After one minute routine – I’m sorry, yes – At a game, it’s three hours worth – Yes ma’am – We will have closeups of cheerleaders – Right – And it could be in overtime three and a half hours later, and it could be exhausting – Yes ma’am – It doesn’t add up to me because you’re such a fitness instructor – Exactly, like you said, I’m always, I feel like my stamina is pretty high – I would think so – Yeah, because I teach so many spin classes, but I think that’s what I do I’m like thinking and I’m trying to hit the motions that I’m forgetting to breathe – Watching you tonight it did not look like you’d be able to make it through a three hour game – Absolutely, I’ll fix that and I’ll breathe when I dance ’cause I think that that’s my issue with that – Okay – That’s it, breathe – Yes ma’am, I will – Okay, thank you so much – Good night – Good night – I don’t breathe is new (laughing) – I’m relieved that I wasn’t cut tonight I mean, this is the end of training camp This is when they will make their final decisions, so I’m glad that they gave me the feedback I needed and I have to go home and apply it ’cause there’s no time left (upbeat music) – You’re gonna take it back for two counts at a time It’s back and up – I’m actually a cycling instructor I teach this probably six to eight times a week I’m kind of excited to show off today a little bit – [Instructor] Elbows wide, all right, here you go Push, push – If you can show me that you have showmanship while you’re riding a bike, you’ll be fine on the field I know it’s hard, it’s supposed to be!
Christina wasn’t as fun to watch as I was hoping I really wanted to see like the energy come out in her face and that’s kind of what I see when she dances She really needs to elevate it From what y’all have done, this is your pregame and you’re about to do kick line, okay? So that’s your challenge right now – We’re gonna do it, right? – Just think of that (cheering) All right here comes kick line – Let’s go (clapping) – Keep smilin’! You ready? Go! ♪ Is changing over it ♪ (laughing) (rock music) – It is the end of week seven This is the farthest that I have ever made it into training camp I mean, we have one more week left They still have cuts to make, so this is it – Christina, you’re not even when you go across, like you go four steps, then you have to hold up – We were kind of scrambled, we were all confused, we didn’t know what we were supposed to do, so we were kind of a hot mess out there – Okay, we’re ready ♪ Players only, come on ♪ Groups one and two rookie candidates ♪ Move it ♪ ♪ 24 karat magic in the air ♪ – Gina’s strong on field I don’t think Brennan is demanding my attention ♪ Don’t think I’m ready to fall in love ♪ – Are you seeing Christina’s kicks? ♪ I ain’t good enough ♪ – She’s struggling – Christina was early ♪ Be in love ♪ (suspenseful music) Christina, your kicks were low that time and your timing’s off When you’re on the end and you have to point your foot, you were before everyone else – Yes ma’am – The kick line is one place where there can’t be mistakes and there can’t be timing issues – I haven’t practiced all summer on the end, and I was just curve ball tonight on the end So that was a little off tonight I’ve literally been trying to make this team for five years, so it’s a lot of work, a lot of time, so it’s very nerve wracking – Okay, beginning of week nine, the last couple of weeks have been turbulent – We’re at 37 ladies now We’ve got to get to 36 So this is one of those nights where we press on and we’re gonna continue on This final cut will be just painful, and I’m hoping that honestly, somebody in the room will make the decision obvious (rock music) – Christina’s still sluggish – I hadn’t thought so tonight, did you? Christina, sluggish? ♪ We’re going off tonight, hey ♪ ♪ To kick your ♪ – This isn’t our first field rehearsal We have been on the field on a couple of times this summer, but it’s kinda like you’re dancing for your life at this point There’s one more cut to make, so we have to give it literally everything we have tonight – I think we need to- – See the rookies – Sure – Okay, let’s see just pink in the kick line Christina’s early on her arms every time – [Kelli] Low left – Right and left – No, that left leg’s just not gonna get there ♪ Baby, there’s nothin’ holding me back ♪ Christina, higher, more pointed, left leg on all kicks – Yes ma’am – I feel Christina knows she’s on a magic carpet ride, and I also get the feeling from her expressions that she thinks the carpet’s about to be ripped out from under her – Okay, let’s do your entrance, so think about where you would hit Say it to yourself right now where you end Do you cross the 50? ♪ All that I could say was mm, mm, yeah, yeah ♪ – Tara, weird style on entrance ♪ Mm, mm, yeah, yeah ♪ ♪ All that I could say was ♪ Yard line Savannah, and yard lines Christina, you overshot your yard line – Next routine Let me see Keyra, Christina, Teryn, Savannah Will y’all do that? Everyone else just step back Molly, will you do this also Somebody may flail on this ♪ You got a perfect one ♪ – Teryn’s boring – So is Christina She’s just wrong in a lot – But you know, single them out like that, it helps me when I can compare them to a Lauren – Okay, one more time – We look like wet dogs out here We’re sweating, it’s very tiring It’s exhausting, but it’s part of the game So we have to get used to it – All right, I could tell y’alls was adrenaline was running I know that your buckets are pretty empty I think tonight’s rehearsal is the closest you guys have gotten to game day yet So congratulations to making it through tonight, it was a great rehearsal Okay, here’s who I need to see in my office tonight, (suspenseful music) Christina, Savannah and Taryn Everybody else we will dismiss, and we’ll see y’all Monday here at the Ford Center – Yes ma’am – Okay? Okay, good night (gentle piano music)
– Tonight obviously feels scary I mean, we are at the end of training camp, and we’re so just emotionally, physically, mentally drained – Christina – This is my fifth time auditioning and I’ve done everything I can at this point, I feel like – Before we have any kind of conversation, what do you want to tell us? – That I’m working really hard I’m working so hard, and I just feel like I have for a long time to try to make this team, you know? But I take this very seriously, and I’m trying to do everything I can, every critique that you give me, I write it down after practice I make sure that I go through and I fix – I don’t have a lot of notes about low kicks this year, did you? – They were low today, and I think that your memory sometimes, whether it’s stress- – Right – And everything’s going on around you, you’re showing that – Okay, yes ma’am – But you always have a bright smile – Thank you, thank you – I think after five years you’ve earned our respect You’ve done everything, and more that we’ve asked of you I would like to see you make this team I can’t guarantee you that you will make this team, but I think you’ve earned a place to be in consideration for this team – Thank you – Be confident in who you are – Okay – And entertain us – Yes ma’am, I can do that – Okay – Good night – Good night – I have mixed emotions This has been stressful, but I survived another night and I’m very, very happy and thankful for that When Kelli told me that I earned her respect that meant so much to me (uplifting music) (cheering) Thank y’all, thank y’all – Tonight, Kelli and are really going to be watching Savannah and Christina because we can’t put somebody out on the field with thousands of people watching them on game day if they’re not ready – Christina, she’s got a little fire in her tonight ♪ Go, I’ve got a feelin’ that you’re lookin’ at me ♪ – Christina! – Yes ma’am – You’ve been better all night tonight until that last couple eight counts we lost your energy there – Yes ma’am Tonight’s obviously very stressful, and I think I’m honestly just really tired It’s been a long night, but it’s the end, so we’re just trying to stay sharp – Y’all I’m real picky about these diagonals as much as your yard line Lines matter, files matter, diagonals matter These look like your places for the season, congratulations! (cheering) This year was probably the toughest year of deciding who should go home and who should stay and make this team They’re so ridiculous For somebody like Christina I would say she is living proof that persistence and hard work has paid off for her I spent almost my entire 20s trying to make the team and it’s finally here, so my dream did come true, absolutely, finally, finally (cheering) – [Man] This one makes me so happy – I’m really just trying to hold it together, you know? I just can’t believe I’m standing here in this photo as a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader I mean, I really have been thinking about this for years ♪ Possibilities ♪ – Ladies watch, please – [Judy] Oh Molly, could you tell you early? – Yes ma’am – See Christina, from this angle, you’re you’re fine Do the same thing from your backside Go back in your head to the rehearsal, it might’ve been Kitty, where you were fighting for your life dancing, right? – Yes ma’am – And on the back, use your- – Got it – Use your assets – Yes ma’am I’m feeling confident-ish, I mean, I’m definitely nervous We’re all trying to remember every critique, every detail that we need to know for tonight I am about to cry I can’t believe that I’m standing here right now and this is just crazy.

♪ That’s what dreamers do ♪ – I’m so happy I never gave up This was all so, so worth it There was probably eight different times I was tearing up because I just was looking up at the stands and thinking, “I can’t believe I’m here.” – Two-piece suits, skimpier suits – They’re pretty small, I will say that – So the more you can extend your lines of your body to make yourself look longer and leaner – So what do we do if we’re in this position on the beach and a wave just completely attacks you? – Actually, those are the best shots when the waves come and your hair starts to get wet, so it’s worth it (uplifting music) – If I can dance all day and learn choreography, but modeling in a swim suit, are you kidding? You’re half-naked basically, so this is very out of my comfort zone – Find your sexy, lick your lips – So there’s a special word we say when we’re trying to make a sexy face and you have to say the word prune – Prune? – Yes, and you say it nice and slow – Prune – And it helps you, exactly! See, you got it already, girl – Was that good? Did I nail it? (upbeat music) – That’s really pretty (upbeat music) Love it – Michael is so great at just making me feel comfortable and constantly giving my compliments – That’s gorgeous – Who would’ve known to say the word “prune” while you’re modeling? But I mean, I get it, it worked – Got it, thanks baby – I felt a lot more comfortable than I thought I would, and I’m having so much fun (upbeat music) Prune. (laughs) So now we go back to Dallas kind of back to reality and training camp starts, and the real work will begin We have to go back and get ready to fight as veterans for our spots I’m auditioning for my third season, but this is actually my seventh time in finals The vets have to audition every year It’s our responsibility to uphold our position It’s definitely stressful, but that’s just part of it This is a business and they want to make sure that they have the best people for this team – Christina didn’t do great at her panel interviews yesterday Today her solo routine showed us a stronger Christina Moving on to number 20, Christina, a veteran – To me she just looked tense There’s something in there, that energy just not comfortable as a performer, so it made me uncomfortable to watch – We’ve done plenty of interviews and podcasts with her She is excellent – If they don’t call my number, I mean, it’ll obviously be very devastating, but I did everything I possibly could – Welcome back number 20, Christina (cheering) (uplifting music) Why is Christina’s this low in training camp as a veteran? I was surprised that Christina didn’t score as high as I would have expected We both said we’d like to see her stronger on the field I wonder what is changing there – She kind of gets lost – As a veteran is not a safe place to be I’d want to be. (clicks teeth) – I think the veterans have pretty much got it Christina though, I know that she can be stronger because the movement is there It’s fun to watch her, it’s just, it’s one face the whole time – Everybody I think has said something seems off with Christina – She has it, it’s just there’s moments on her face that says she does not have it – Yeah Good work We will see everybody tomorrow Very quickly in my office I need to see Kat and Christina If you two will stay and everybody else we’ll see you manana, okay? All righty, good night (suspenseful music) – I was really honestly thrown off when they called my name to be in the office Definitely very passionate about being on this team It took a lot to get here I’ve had two phenomenal years – Christina – There’s something about the tension and energy in that room that is so nerve wracking – Hello – Hey – We want to have a talk (suspenseful music) – Last season, I’m looking at all my notes and these are my words, bright, beautiful, great smile For some reason this year, starting in auditions, almost all of the judges didn’t know if something might be wrong or if you were as happy Because at auditions, to be real honest, you weren’t the highest scoring veteran Is there something going on? – The only thing I can think of is I’m working full time eight to five now It’s difficult finding that balance So I’m just, I’m honestly, not that this is an excuse, but I’m very tired, so I don’t know if that’s coming across But I think I just I work so hard all day and then I drive an hour, which that makes me exhausted too And then I come here and I- – You look frail (suspenseful music) – As hard as you’ve worked to make this team I think you should give yourself permission to do whatever it takes just to kinda have fun and enjoy the moment ’cause I think it’ll make you a better performer – Okay, I agree with you
– Well that’s our feedback and our advice is lighten up, brighten up, make sure your audience knows you’re having fun – I’ll work on that, and I appreciate the pulse check (laughs) – All righty – All righty – Good night – Have a good night – See you tomorrow – Thank you Kelli said that some of the judges weren’t as excited this year during auditions, and you know it obviously stung a little, but I absolutely want to be here So it’s been a long journey and I’m just, I’m happy to be here and I want to make sure I show that (cheering) (funky music) ♪ Here we go, come on ♪ ♪ They can see us comin’ from a mile away ♪ ♪ They wanna see us, wanna be us, nah we don’t play ♪ ♪ Gettin’ fancy, as you can see ♪ ♪ We got a groove, makin’ you move ♪ ♪ No come on, get on your feet ♪ ♪ Get up, right now, get up ♪ ♪ Right now get up ♪ – [Melanie] I love her – They’re all good Except for Chris-timing ♪ Everybody’s gonna have a really good time ♪ ♪ We gotta crew ready to do whatever ♪ ♪ Do it like this ♪ – Christina, I don’t know There’s something that I can’t really define so solidly about her Her turns have no zap to ’em, you know? – She’s missing the fight, just a little – And I know she has fight in her or she wouldn’t have tried out five years – Yes – She’s a good dancer, but she could be great Now for the fourth one to pass on, I guess it would be Christina – There weren’t any surprises with who Tyce and Melanie didn’t pick It’s been the same set of rookies that have had a lot of discussion, and he also put Christina in that group – I think there was a bit of magic missing – So these are not new comments and not surprise comments (country music) – Outside of DCC, I am trying to launch my career as a recruiter for a staffing agency It’s just really important to me I’m here every single day, eight to five and it is hard work This is the first time I’ve been on the team and working full time, so I’m just trying to find that balance Actually was hired on through Danielle who is a former DCC (knocking) – Hi – Hi! – So I love that we’re kind of keeping it in the DCC family and helping each other out Thanks for coming to see me – Balancing everything, okay? – For a while, I was so tired going into practice – When you’re in training camp, it’s so much pressure, and when you have a job that’s separate, you’re thinking about something else all day and you can leave that where it is and you’ll get to it later – I’ve noticed that lately because I can just kind of close that door for right now, focus on practice and go back to work the next day and do it all over again – All over again You like this location, this commute’s better for you? – I love, I moved locations, so the commute is night and day difference – Good – I’m not as tired in practice any more I was really, really exhausted driving an hour to work, an hour home, straight to practice It’s a huge difference, and I’m so happy – Yeah – Good Well, I don’t want to take up any more of your time I just wanted to stop in and check on you, see how you were doing – Thank you so much – Yeah – I appreciate all your advice – Good – You’ve been so supportive – Of course – I know you know how I feel, so- – I do, I totally do (mumbles) Call me – I will ♪ Hey, I love myself ♪ ♪ No, I don’t need anybody else ♪ ♪ Hey, hey, I love myself ♪ ♪ No, I don’t need anybody else ♪ ♪ Can’t help myself ♪ ♪ No, I don’t need anybody else ♪ ♪ Any time day or night I love me ♪ ♪ I love myself ♪ ♪ No, I don’t need anybody else ♪ ♪ Hey, I love myself ♪ – Who’s on the 50? – Christina ♪ Hey, can’t help myself ♪ ♪ No, I don’t need ♪ – You’re kidding me There’s no way that’s Christina on the 50 ♪ I love me ♪ – Christina, that was your best routine of the season (cheering) Where’d that come from?

(laughs) – I love you guys so much – I didn’t even get to say congratulations you’ve all made the team It was the first non-announcement announcement we’ve ever had Congratulations, you all made the team!
