Dance Moms producers finally shared Lilliana Ketchman's unaired, award-winning solo from last week's episode after hearing the complaints of fans, dance teacher Abby Lee Miller, and Ketchman herself.

The Dance Moms fandom became aware of the missing solo late last week when Abby took to social media to call out the network for cutting Lily's solo, which placed first overall, in order to show the drama between the ALDC and rival Studio 19.

"When we all work so hard on a Spectacular routine that wins the whole damn competition & they don’t air it!!! Grrrrrrrr," Miller wrote in an Instagram post. "They’d rather give the air time to some demented psycho!"

Lifetime, which has cut many routines from the show for the sake of time, posted a video of the full dance to their Youtube channel on Sunday.

The solo, entitled "Black Widow," is a captivating character piece in which Lilly embodies — no surprise here — a black widow. The choreography is difficult, to say the least, and Lilly absolutely nailed it, which has us questioning even more why Lifetime would want to deprive us of this particular dance in the first place.

Fans were ecstatic that the network put up the dance, flooding the video with positive comments. But fans also appeared equally confused as to why it wasn't aired during last week's episode.

"Okay, you're under arrest, Lifetime because not airing this is a literal crime," one commenter wrote on the Youtube video. "The fandom will consider reducing your sentence if you post all other unaired dances. Court adjourned."

"Can we put the 'drama' on YouTube, and the cut dances on tv instead??" one commenter wrote.

The network also posted a video showing the behind-the-scenes of Lilly's dance, which gave us a rare look into Abby's choreographing process. On the show, we typically only see clips of Abby yelling corrections at the students, but the four-minute video showed us a lesser-seen process of Abby and choreographer Gianna Martello choosing steps and tweaking the dance.

Hopefully this will be a lesson for producers, should Dance Moms come back for a ninth season — dance over drama.
