MTV sent us some news for tonights premiere of Randy Jackson Presents: America’s Best Dance Crew, including a list of the new performers. Here’s the details.
In March, “Randy Jackson Presents: America’s Best Dance Crew” crowned JabbaWockeeZ, the masked men from San Diego, the #1 crew after more than 38 million votes were cast for the final two crews.
Beginning TONIGHT at 10pm ET/PT on MTV, ten crews come together for their chance to become “America’s Best Dance Crew.” The weekly competitive series returns with host Mario Lopez, backstage correspondent Layla Kayleigh and judges JC Chasez, Lil Mama and Shane Sparks. One crew will be eliminated in the first episode and every Thursday night until only one remains.
Meet the 10 new crews:
A.S.I.I.D. (Detroit, MI) – They grew up in tough neighborhoods and lean on each other for support. Their inspiration comes from crew member Joey who is deaf.
Boogie Bots (Washington, DC) – They think of themselves as robots that have come to life. Each performance is dedicated to crew member Joesar’s father, who has been in a coma for the past six months.
Distorted X (Houston, TX) – All are studio dancers who have dubbed themselves “Houston Socialites — without the money.”
Fanny Pak (Los Angeles, CA) – This zany bunch is looking to bring back the bold and wacky energy of the 80s with a unique dance style and fashion sense.
Presh Select (Philadelphia, PA) – This crew wants other teens out there to know that there is more to streets than hate and that hip hop dance can be a positive force.
Sass x7 (Piscataway, NJ) – The only all-girl crew, these dancers once competed on the Rutgers Dance Team.
SoReal Cru (Houston, TX) – Students at the University of Houston, this crew looks to their family for encouragement and support – especially when they are forced to practice in a restaurant parking lot.
Super Cr3w (Las Vegas, NV) – After failing to make the show last season, three crews mergered together to show the world how b-boys do it.
Supreme Soul (San Francisco, CA) – Full of confidence, this crew has traveled the world competing in hip hop competitions yet they always feel like the underdog.
Xtreme Dance Force (Naperville, IL) – Disciplined studio dancers, this all-guy crew feels that they are pre-judged for their “pretty boy” looks and are looking to show what fierce dancers they really are.
