Now, the mens competition is (to quote Christian Siriano) "FIERCE", but on the womens side...yikes. And to make things even worse, Shayla Worley might not be competiting, she might be "injured" again. Its horrible. Mattie Larson might be competiting for her instead, but I've also heard that she isn't the replacement. At the next "verification camp", we will see who will compete. Other than the debut's of the American's new routines and upgrades and Xiao Tingting's bar routine (if NBC shows that), the competition on the womens side will be more than lackluster.
Ther American Cup is supposed to be aired "live" on March 1st on NBC.
