ABDC is back! And Randy Jackson has crowned season six the “Season of the Superstars!” with 10 teams competing to shock your socks off with flips, jumps, twists, hips, hops, defying gravity and physics, and how bendy your body can be! Judging these years crop of dancers are ABDC alumni D-Trix, the ever-talented MC Lil’ Mama and rocking the post-boy band look, JC Chasez!
Round One introduces us to the first round of shocking moves as five teams from around the U.S (and the world!) face off as they work their magic on stage to Lil’ Wayne songs. The show kicks off with all five teams jamming to Six Foot Seven Foot, and the action literally keeps going non-stop through to the end! If you missed the show-stopping techniques that kicked off season six, just click HERE to see them, and then read on for the full breakdown!
I Am Me: meaning to inspire, motivate and energize, this Texas group formed a human Rubik’s cube with arms, legs and joints moving in every which direction to Right Above It featuring Drake. Using women as human guns – pretty damn cool way to end the set! These guys are definitely ones to watch this season!
Phunk Phenomenon: hailing from Boston, these did it up nicely to A Milli and showed the world a) a lone girl can hold her own against a team of boys and b) they’re sexy, but they’re gangsta! The Superman jump was the best part of their street moves! The lone female totally sells this group, but I think they’re got to do more to compete with the other hip hop moves we’ve seen before in other seasons.
Request Dance Crew: the non-American entry, the group travelled all they way from New Zealand to compete on ABDC. They brought with them “Poly-swag” as all they girls are Polynesian and them gots some hardcore swagger! They’re an all girl group and they danced to Knock-Out featuring Nicki Minaj as they let loose and showed their individual personalities in their moves. They definitely brought something different with “Poly-swag” but the judges advice was to make sure they don’t turn into a one-trick pony.
Street Kingdom: This group has officially brought “Crump” to the mainstream. Literally “letting your body move all on it’s own” crumping brings a whole new style of movement you can’t even begin to judge. And what’s more – they’re all Christian dancers! But don’t underestimate them – they know how to bring it! They got their crump on to Not A Human Being. They’re definitely a group that’s going to make it back week after week.
Eliminated: Eclectic Gentleman. The first group to get eliminated was the all-guy group from North Hollywood who dared to make hip hop more than just hoodies and high-tops. But with multiple hip hop groups competing, they needed something to make them stand-out, and I’m sorry, but snazzy bow-ties just weren’t enough. They did create a human fire truck to go with their song, Fireman.
What do you think? Are their too many hip-hop groups? Was the right team eliminated, or did you want to see more from Eclectic Gentlemen?
Next week, we get the next five groups competing to songs from….KE$HA!
