Nationals Round of 5: Usher Challenge
March 18

Last week, two crews... Static Noyze and Heavy Impact... brought the noise, but mailed in the funk. As a result, their banners hit the ground, leaving five to take on a blazin' hip-hop R&B legend in the making... but who'll have us saying "Yeah!" and who's ready to sign their papers?


First up, Jungle Boogie and Blueprint. One will dance first. The other will be in the bottom two. The first crew up tonight is...

... JUNGLE BOOGIE! They'll get a hit by the hit maker and will have to design a routine from that hit. Will Jungle Boogie do his hometown proud? They'll be making "Love in This Club" with some hot glides. It's hard to pull off. Can they do it?

What they say: JC says that the knee glide was sick. The foot glide... not so much. Omarion thought they embodied Usher. Mama says that they were clean from beginning to end.

What we say: They definitely put it down as the last crew from the South remaining. They got the glide down, but at the same time, it was a little bland.

Three crews left. Two will move on to next week. One's going to battle. First crew in the top 3..... POREOTIX! Following them into safety... HYPE 5-0! Which means that Blueprint Cru and Saltare will fight for their lives in battle...

But first, let's try to win JC again with an Usher routine from Poreotix. They get "Yeah!" Their challenge... bring the choreography... and then, true to the song, "take that and rewind it back".

What they say: Mama says that they were clever in their misdirection and "on point". JC says that this is a club smash, and they took over the lyrics to the song. He's seeing a little more dimension. Omarion sees a lot of potential, but he wants the group to level their difficulty.

What we say: Love it... Own it...

Now for Hype 5-0. Can they hang ten with "U Don't Have to Call" wearing heelies? They're known for choreography, but they're going to need more than that if they want to master heel wheels.

What they say: Omarion likes the song, and likes what the crew did with it. Mama thought it was "swaggerific", but certain parts of it were "stiff". Josh double backflipped and then rolled into the next progression. JC was afraid that they got caught up in the prop, citing Breaksk8 from season 1.

What we say: Taking Heelys to a new dimension, rolling through another performance. It's a nice little blend of choreography and stunt.


As a reminder, the bottom two are Blueprint Cru and Saltare. They will perform one after another. The judges will pick one to move on. The other two... are going to drop. Blueprint won the toss, so Nicolas aka B-Boy Hero and company are going to get the handsection from "Hey Daddy (Daddy's Home)". Vince is going to get his French Canadian freak-on with that.

Now to the jumpers of Saltare. Their mission, should they choose to accept it, is to incorporate fight choreography to "Caught Up". So dancing... fighting... and roping... Last week, the combination wasn't there. They needs to come all out in order to survive THIS week.

Both crews returned fire, but one is about to get "burned". The judges choice... to move on... to the next round... is...



BLUEPRINT! Saltare jumped all the way to the final five, but unfortunately, that's about as high as they're going to get, as their banner falls tonight.

Next week, we got tricks for days as the final four use magic in an attempt to pull a spot in the final three out of their hats. But one crew will disappear forever in battle. One title... Now FOUR crews. The search for America's best dance crew continues.
