Byeynyn's review of ABDC6's Justin Bieber Challenge

Last week, all six crews gave a respectable effort to the respectable Rihanna, but it was 787 Crew that couldn’t quite deliver the dance hall style and had to pack their bags and go. This week is the infamous Justin Bieber Week, and all five crews will have to suck up to Justin Bieber as much as the show’s been doing. They will also have to incorporate moves from Bieber’s DVD, “Never Say Never,” which I have never seen and never will. And in what can only be considered a cosmic sign, I had a huge headache watching this episode.

How did the dancers do? I feel like this whole episode needs to be graded on a curve, because dancing to this is way different from dancing to Michael Jackson. I’d hate for a solid crew to be sent home because they couldn’t make magic out of such groundbreaking lyrics such as “And I was like, baby, baby, baby, ohhhh!” The majority of the songs are so lackluster this season, the crews are practically dancing with sandbags. Good challenges push the boundaries of the crews instead of act like restrictive chains. And for the most part, this episode is one giant, prepubescent, girly-voiced chain.
