The 15-year-old dancer, who left the show in season four, felt like it was the right time to make an appearance.
“My mom and I had been talking one night and she said that the girls were coming back to Pittsburgh and it might be the last competition,” Chloe told Bustle.com. “I teared up because that was my childhood. Growing up, it was all I knew. I got a little sad about it and then I thought, ‘What if I came back for the finale? How funny would that be?’”
“My mom respected my decision because when we did the show, it was always something that we agreed on, including when it was time to leave,” Chloe said. “I miss the relationship that we used to have just because for the two years I’ve been off doing my own thing and they’ve been still on the show, so we’ve just kind of grown apart…It was really nice to see them again and reconnect.”
She added, “I feel like I’ve grown up a lot since leaving the show and I’ve gained my own voice.”
