On Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition
Madison made it past the casting special and entered the main competition. Madison, along with Brianna, was announced as one of the top dancers for the first week. Madison made it past week 2 and week 3 with ease until week 4. Madison landed in the bottom 3 with Elisabeth and best friend Zack. Madison danced off with Elisabeth and Zack and almost was sent home, but the judges spared her and sent Zack home instead. Madison then recovered for week 5. Madison got her first solo in week 6 and landed in the top 2 with Jordyn. Madison won her first group challenge in week 7, winning a duet with Amanda C and being the star of the group dance. Madison soon suffered an injury to her Achilles tendon but managed to dance through the pain and make it another week. Madison impressed the judges again with her solo in week 9 and made it to the final 3. Madison has had trouble over the competition with her emotion but she was one of the dancers with the best technique. Madison won the final group challenge in the finale and got to choose when all the girls got to perform. She chose Asia to go first, then Brianna, then herself. She worked with Richy, who she had been struggling to impress, in her mentoring session. They talked about Madison letting go and not giving face, but emotion. Madison performed the final group and the trio, where she was received mixed reception for her emotion (she dropped the emotion during her turns but gave out a beautiful smile at the end). Madison performed her solo, getting high praise. Madison was the runner-up of the competition.
