Maddie Ziegler

Fleeing from the challenging and gloomy life she lives at home

The audience senses that she is the one

Luscious hair, layers of makeup, superior costumes all perfectly made

Eyes sparkling at the judges, making them want more

Flawless, spiritfilled face beams as the perfectly suited song finishes

Perfection on stage. Flawed at home

The depressing hit of reality comes

She closes her eyes, remembers the adrenalin and has to move on

The walk back to the dressing room feels very long and dull

A shadow of regret follows her all the way

Reminding her of the nightmares that she pretends she can't remember

Clutching onto all the memories she wished she never had

Sobbing one last time and wipes her last tears away
