Dancing and Singing

Shortly after learning a hip hop routine with the help of dance expert Todd Flanagan, the kids show off their dance moves for Dancing With the Stars’ Karina Smirnoff. Whose moves earn top pick? Then, the children battle it out in the singing competition. Will country singer Hunter, who has been out of her element so far, hit a high note or fall flat?

Watch the dance competition and decide for yourself who has the best moves. Does your pick match Karina’s?

Hunter, who struggled through the dancing and acting competitions, finally gets the chance to show off her singing talents. Will she hit it out of the park?



Plan B?

Dr. Phil pulls three of the moms aside to see if they have a backup plan in place. Are they being realistic? Plus, the judges weigh in about the competition so far. What advice do they have for these families?

Belinda explains why she feels Hunter hasn’t been on her A game. “To be a star where she’s from, and to come here and be knocked down a few steps, I think that kind of crushed her.”

The judges critique the children’s performances so far. Would they cast anyone based on their skills at the moment? And, what advice do they have for the parents?
