Week 5 Preview -- Janet Jackson tribute

The LA Times reports that, for the Janet Jackson tribute next Thursday, the Crews will dance tong to "Control," "Nasty," "If," "All Nite (Don't Stop)," "I Get Lonely" and "Black Cat." The crews were given clip reels of Janet's greatest dance moves for inspiration. And, in the show finale, the crews will perform together to Jackson's "Rhythm Nation." Click here for more details and commentary.

Do you think Janet and family will show up? More importantly, which of the crews with girls (Fanny Pak, A.S.I.I.D, SoReal Cru) will have the best wardrobe malfunction?

In an upcoming episode of MTV's MADE, a rhythm-impaired teen gets lessons from Boogie Bots and Supreme Soul in order to perform in her own dance crew. Click here for more info.

Not that we needed another reason to watch the show, but Juice with Junior declares that ABDC may foster nationwide racial harmony. So, can we expect guest visits from the Presidential candidates during the finale?

Guest appearances from Season 1 Crews:
  • Fysh N Chicks in a fashion show! Thanks to The Writer for posting the video.
  • If you live near Lacrosse Wisconsin, you can see members of Breaksk8 at the High Roller Skating Center next week. Call them at 608-78-SKATE for details.
Week 4 Recap-a-rama:

Reactions to Speed Up Challenge - Week 4

Dance Crew pushes the crews' skills with a Speed-Up Challenge. Phresh Select's banner falls. What did YOU think? Post your reactions here.

BABDC Love for Phresh Select

You were a worthy competitor, whether it was doing it old-school in Week 1, bringing on some Chris Brown suave in Week 2, or poppin' it in Week 3. The crew's roots -- bringing together rival Philadelphia crews -- are phresh indeed. And -- you were fun. We'll miss you, and hope to see a lot of Phresh Select over the coming years.

Note: only positive comments in this post, please. Any other thoughts belong in our reactions post here.

Welcome, Readers of BSYTYCD!

As a new site, we are really happy to get some new readers. Especially ones who like reality dance shows! For those readers who aren't familiar with Blogging So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD), check it out now.

Maybe we can team up and convince producers to film a combined show or competitive show dance-off. They can call it 'So you think you can be America's Best Dance Crew'...
