This season on ABDC, it's
been region against region to see who would come out on top as the best
of the best. This lead, through elimination giving rise to elimination,
like a row of dominoes falling, to the final two crews: Montreal-based
Blueprint Cru from the East and California's Poreotix. One of them will
rise above all others to take the $100,000 and be named... America's
Best Dance Crew.
The question remains... will the Canadian
underdogs make their invasion of America total... or will the boys from
out west defend the title and keep the trophy in the West? That question
will be answered... momentarily.
The 15 million votes cast have created
the closest vote in ABDC history. Before we get to their results, we
bring back Swagger Crew, Royal Flush, Static Noyze, Heavy Impact,
Saltare, Jungle Boogie, and Hype 5-0 to join top two contenders Poreotix
We kick off the finale with Omarion and
the ABDC5 West All-Stars performing to Ke$ha's "Blah Blah Blah",
bringing the "Hypeotix Impact". Then comes Lil' Mama and best of the
East with Blueprint, Saltare, and Static Noyze performing to "Hot Mess"
by Cobra Starship. Finally, JC is giving the South a little flavor, as
Swagger Crew, Royal Flush, and Jungle Boogie set it off to "Take Your
Shirt Off" by T-Pain.
After taking a look back at the journeys
of Poreotix and Blueprint Cru, the two crews go at it against each other
one more time to the drumline beats of Pulse Percussion.
JC said that the Blueprint has been
underdogs all season, but they came together as a team and persevered,
especially in the Lady Gaga Challenge. The togetherness is what being
America's Best Dance Crew is all about. "You've done yourselves proud,
you've done Canada proud, you've done ABDC proud." Omarion says that he
was a tough judge all season, only because he wanted Poreotix to seek
greatness. In the Usher and Lady Gaga challenges, they broke out
creative monster moves. "Whatever happens tonight, well done gentlemen."
Lil Mama sums up the season by saying that both crews were dedicated and
strong. "With the votes being so close, that shows why you're here."
But America has the last word.
After 15 million votes....
... and after the tightest vote in ABDC
The winner of the $100,000...
... and America's Best Dance Crew...
There has to be a winner... there has to
be a loser... and you were très courageux in your effort, but alas...
Blueprint Cru's banner must fall...
And now we salute our champions as Randy
Jackson arrives to present the championship trophy and to drop the
championship banner. We end with one performance by the world
championship crew, Poreotix.
The question now... do YOU have what it
takes to put it down for your crew? Be on the lookout for season 6
calls. They're coming to you soon. Until then... good night from Los
Angeles, where Poreotix of Westminster, CA is named AMERICA'S BEST DANCE
Next week, the five champions reunite for
charity. For now... CONFETTI!
