In this episode, the designers (contestants) were given the challenge of creating an outfit for Zendaya to wear in an upcoming concert performance.
She began her career appearing as a child model and backup dancer, before gaining prominence for her role as Rocky Blue on the Disney Channel sitcom Shake It Up (2010–2013). Zendaya's self-titled debut studio album (2013) debuted at number 51 on the Billboard 200 chart.
On February 29, 2012, "Something to Dance For" was released as promotional single for Live 2 Dance.
For the soundtrack, Zendaya also recorded three other songs: "Made In Japan," "Same Heart", and "Fashion In Krytonite", released as promotional single.
She was partnered up with professional dancer Valentin Chmerkovskiy.
In May, the couple finished as runners-up behind Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough.
On June 5, 2011, Shake It Up had a crossover episode with Good Luck Charlie.
