And the champion of America's Best Dance Crew Season 7 is... Elektrolytes!
The finale had 8Flavahs and Elektrolytes creating routines to a master mix of Katy Perry's hits with both crews dancing in the opening number to "Wide Awake".
The crews had a chance to meet with Katy who gave each crew some lasting advice. She encouraged the girls of 8Flavahs to play up their unique "flavahs" and consult the wardrobe department on showing of their individual styles. For Elektrolytes, she shared her experiences about never giving up which was similar to the TKTK crew's journey to the top. Elektrolytes had auditioned three times before making it to the Top 10 this season and eventual champs.
With the results out of their hands, each crew performed with a champion crew from previous seasons giving the audience and the judges an amazing show to celebrate dance. Elektrolytes were first, partnering with Poreotix for a robotic, illusion-heavy routine to "Part of Me".
As the youngest crew ever on ABDC (and one of the only female crews to advance to the finals), 8Flavahs partnered with all-girl crew We Are Heroes for an athletic nd visually stunning number that sent a hard-hitting girl power message to dance fans.
Finally, Season 6 winners I aM mE performed a routine on the ABDC stage (that once again reminded us why they were clear winners) before the torch was passed to the underdogs from Arizona.
