Phoenix says THE JUDGES SAID THE NOMINATIONS
WERE TOTALLY LEGIT.
Erica says IF YOU BTA-ERS THINK YOU’RE SO
AWESOME WHY DON’T YOU SHOW US
WHAT YOU’VE GOT?
UNLESS BTA’S SCARED OF BEING
EMBARRASSED ON HOME TURF.
Nicholas says DIDN’T YOU HEAR
ANYTHING I SAID?
THE CIRCUS IS ABOUT LIFTING EACH
NOT BRINGING EACH OTHER DOWN.
Erica says SPOKEN LIKE A REAL DADDY’S BOY.
Nicholas says YOU KNOW WHAT?
WE’LL SHOW YOU BTA’S THE BEST.
Erica says A CIRCUS SHOW OFF IT IS.
RCA VS BTA.
Rosa says WORKS FOR ME.
At the show off, Rosa does a backbend. She walks one her hands and then Max lifts her on his shoulder.
BTA chants ROSA, ROSA, ROSA.
Then 2 boys from RCA do a capoeira number.
Now Nicholas and Max do a number with the jumping ropes.
An RCA boy does a solo number with the ropes.
Now Axel joins Nicholas and Max for the ropes number.
RCA does their 3-athlete rope number.
Nicholas says ERICA, STOP.
IT’S ME YOU HAVE THE PROBLEM
WITH SO WHY DON’T WE SHOW EACH
OTHER WHAT WE’VE GOT RIGHT HERE
Erica says I HAVE A BETTER IDEA.
APRIL VERSUS PHOENIX.
April says WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
Erica says TO PROVE THAT BTA’S IN YOUR REAR
Phoenix says I’M NOT GOING AGAINST
Erica says IT’S TIME TO PICK A SIDE
Celeste says I THOUGHT YOU WERE ONE OF US.
Erica says DON’T LISTEN TO THESE
THEY KICKED YOU OUT.
Nicholas says YOU ARE ONE OF US.
Phoenix says PART OF THE FAMILY.
April joins the BTA team.
Erica says BUT YOU SAID WE WERE BEST
April says WE ARE BUT BTA IS MY FAMILY AND
IF YOU’RE MAKING ME CHOOSE...
I CHOOSE MY FAMILY.
I CAN’T BE AT ROYAL CIRCUS
I’M SORRY ERICA.
Erica says WELL.
WE’VE HUMILATED BTA ENOUGH FOR

THESE BRIDGES FOREVER.
Rosa says SO, IS APRIL COMING BACK TO BTA?
Phoenix says ABSOLUTELY.
WE JUST HAVE TO CONVINCE MS.
MARTEL AND MR. ZOLTA.
Ella says YAY.
Erica says I HOPE BTA REALIZES THEY
MADE A POWERFUL ENEMY.
