Last night's America's Best Dance Crew
episode introduced viewers to the rest of the teams of Season 7 as Flo Rida
performed his latest hit, "Wild One". Rocking animal masks and sunglasses, the studio was so full of energy it looked like one big dance party (of really good dancers). And since Flo Rida was performing, it meant that this week the crews were setting their choreography to his hits and the man with the glasses would join JC, Lil Mama
on the judges table.
Since last week's episode was pretty much one of the best episodes I've seen on ABDC, I wasn't putting my hopes up for this week because when has there ever been a season where pretty much all the crews are awesome? Answer: this season.
Though they performed last, crowd-favourite Mos Wanted Crew
impressed the judges with their movement over sound philosophy and their crisp choreography for "In the Air" that they were the first to be called back for next week. Joining them next was Collizion Crew
whose dirrty south humour and tricks for "Low" had DTrix and JC praising the fellas from the ATL.
Surprisingly, Rated Next Generation (RNG)
was next to be saved though I felt Elektrolytes
had a much better performance, espeically since they had to rearrange their "Can't Handle Me" routine after a member on their team got hurt. So why did the jduges choose to save them first? RNG, made up of 13-to-15-year-olds, did have the dance skills in their "Right Round" performance that some of the other groups lacked and because they're still learning we may see more surprises from them.
And this left Funkdation
who danced to "Good Feeling" left to battle it out against last week's fifth place team, Mix'd Elements
. This was an interesting elimination because both teams had two rounds to prove why they deserved to be back next week by performing to Flo Rida's "Turn Around". With Lil Mama choosing Funkdation and DTrix choosing Mix'd Elements to continue, it ultimately left JC with the tie-breaking decision. The former boy-bander had saved the crew from Mexico and sadly, it Mix'd Elements' banner was the first to fall on Season 7.
Next week, the crews come together as nine face off to the tunes of Madonna
