"Piano Man" is the 26th episode in Season 6 of The Next Step and the 180th episode overall. It is the finale of Season 6. It aired on April 7, 2019.


With a showdown looming, several dancers question their future.[1]


Noah stands on the stage alone, as it is the last day of Regionals and he wants to remember the moment. As he reflects, Jacquie appears from the audience. Jacquie confesses that she knows what's coming. Noah tells her that he will be leaving The Next Step after Regionals, but assures her that they will still be together. Jacquie tells him that they can no longer be together if he leaves, as she will be holding him back. They break up and perform a duet to "Mountains" in the audience. They conclude sitting next to each other in seats, and Noah confesses that it is not goodbye yet.

AcroNation and The Next Step stand on the stage awaiting information about what they will do after Encore's disqualification and the studios' tie. Emily, Michelle, Thalia and Eldon appear after talking to the judges. They are told that a tie is broken by a ten-person dance and they have two hours to choreograph, which scares them as it is such a short amount of time.

  • Noah confesses that it has been five years since he sang "Wish You Well" to A-Troupe, but it has only been two. He also confesses that that was when he first joined The Next Step, but in "All the Marbles", Emily mentions that Noah has been at The Next Step almost as long as her, which would mean that he has to have been there for at least 15 years, seeing as Emily had been at The Next Step for 14 years in Season 2.
  • Season 6's A-Troupe should not know "Wish You Well" because only Noah sang and performed that song to Season 1's A-Troupe. However, seeing as Michelle and Emily were on A-Troupe in Season 1, it is possible that they learned it then and taught it to Season 6's A-Troupe. It is also possible that, upon hearing Noah sing a line from the song in "The Edge of Glory", Richelle, Henry and Piper learned the song from Noah and taught it to the others who were not there at the time. Additionally, it is possible that Richelle was on J-Troupe in Season 1 at the same time as Noah, but merely did not appear on-screen until Season 2 and learned the song at the time it was composed. It is also possible that Richelle learned the song from the other Season 1 J-Troupers and taught it the rest of Season 6's A-Troupe.

Cultural References

  • The title refers to a song by Billy Joel with the same name.
