  • Maesi Caes, another dancer who made it to the top eight of Abby and the producers' auditions, joined the team this week to replace Daviana Fletcher.
  • Guy Amir and Deja Carter choreographed the group dance this week. It was inspired by the Netflix original The Get Down.
  • In the dressing room after awards, Ashlee referred to Elliana's first solo that she "completely forgot the steps to". It is likely that she was referring to Elliana's unseen solo "Chameleon", as that was in fact, her first solo on the team.
