Ulimate Showdown of ABDC Superiority Bonus Round: Rise from the Grave!!

Feeling sad that one of your favorites didn't make it to the top eight? Well don't worry there is still hope yet! I would like to advance two more crews to the end so that we will have a top ten instead of a top eight.


To do this I propose a little game called Hurt and Heal: Rise from the grave!

Rules are easy to follow:
--Each crew has 10 points, for a total number of 80 points in play. Your job is to take points away from routines or crews you don't like and give them to a crew you do like.
--Each hour you make take away one point from a crew and then give a point to a crew. Hence you hurt a crew to heal a crew.
--Also you must wait for someone else to make a move before you make make another one. Even if you get your vote in at the last second for an hour.

--To play a round you do it like so:

example
Crew A 10+1=11
Crew B 15-1=14
Crew C 5

Just copy the list from the previous voter and add and subtract from it. In addition to speed things along, once a crew gets to 40 points they automatically move to the next round. In addition, any crew that reaches 0 point are eliminated from the contest and cannot be revived.

We will go back to the normal contest on Monday at 12 noon. Play nice!

Final standings

Rebirth
Beat Freaks with 29 points at the closing bell
Phunk Phenomenon at 1:47 am thanks to Illstar

Left Behind

Fly Khicks with 11 points at the closing bell

Graveyard
Static Noyze at 9:48 am by Ninjaboi
Poreotix at 8:17 pm by Frank (sorry NAO)
Rhythm City at 10:00 am by Names are overrated.
787 Crew at 8:18 am by Names are Overrated.
Southern Movement at 4:46 am by Guest

To get things started I posted the first move in the comments.

KoopaTV | Dance Clip of the Day: "Poppin John - UDC"

Hallo! We're back to Germany! Today's episode of KoopaTV takes us back to the upload spree of Urban Dance Camp, for another post on Poppin John.

This man, hands down, has been one of the most talented 'new age' poppers that I've watched progress for the better part of 5 years. He's incredibly gifted and it definitely shows here. His musicality and animation are only topped by the insane speed and power of his waving. Check this out:

IBE 2011: Illusion of Exist vs. Soul Mavericks

I already posted this as part of one bigger IBE post, but I felt it would be fair to give this B-boy Champs qualifier its own post like the other one's got. In this video, we have Illusion of Exist facing off against Soul Mavericks in one of three qualifying battles for the UK Bboy Championships. Illusion of Exist were able to fend off Soul Mavericks' numerous routines with their individual skills and earned themselves a spot at the UK Bboy Championships on October 16th.


Bonus points to whoever can spot the breaker who competed at the 2011 World Hip Hop Dance Championships.

Ulimate Showdown of ABDC Superiority Round Three Day Four

Well here is the last of your easy decision brackets and by easy I still mean painful. It is only going to get harder next round and if this bracket is any indication of that I can't wait!

Today we have the original champions JabbaWockeeZ taking on the Beat Freaks. Has Jabba's evolution of street dance routine aged well enough to hold it's own against the techinal and powerful precision of the middle of Beat Freaks magic routine? Will the Season three Champions, Quest Crew over come the only good crew to come out of Boston, Phunk Phenomenon? Will the champions prevail or will the challengers send them home? Vote and let your voice be heard.

For the third round there will be two match ups each. Please follow the links provided and watch each performance. Afterwords,vote for which one you feel was the better routine.

--Only one vote per match up.

PREVIOUS ROUND RESULTS: Instant Noodles barely survives the power and grace of Static Noyze. What started as a close fight ended up with a clear winner as The Fly Khicks' spunk was no match for the fire of We are Heroes. When these two meet in the next round the sparks are going to fly and only one will advance.

KoopaTV | Dance Clip of the Day: "Marry You"

Hey! Today's episode of KoopaTV takes us back to Cali! This video has been going around the past couple of days, and not only is the choreography really dope, but the story behind it is SO SWEET that we just had to share it with you.

Based in Walnut, California, Marvels Dance Company is a juniors hip hop dance team that competes locally (click here for WOD 2011 Family Night). On September 26th, co-director Jamin Love proposed to long time girlfriend and co-director Valerie Albania. Of course, being a dancing couple, he had to do it in an appropriate way possible. Hence, he got a bunch of his friends and proposed flash-mob style, to Bruno Mars's song "Marry You."

Congratulations to Jamin and Valerie on their future life together!

Thank Karen Chu for this great submission! (And thanks Ninjaboi for writing this post first, lol)

Jrath just released a video of his song "It's Goin Down" that features dancing by members of IaMmE (America's Best Dance Crew Season 6 winners). It's lowtech, but a good focus on the individual dancers' skills and the reason they made ABDC so enjoyable last season.

Any teams looking to apply should contact registration@tmdance.org and an application will be sent to them.

Ulimate Showdown of ABDC Superiority Round Three Day Three

Today we have our most unpredictable round of the four. First off is Static Noyze, who barely beat Season Two champs SuperCr3w in a tight race, facing off against the last b-boys standing Instant Noodles. Will their humorous Beieber routine be enough to beat the grace and passion of SN?

In an all female throw-down we have Season Four Champs, We are Heroes routine puts it all on the line with the first LLC that got a standing ovation from the judges. However, Fly Khicks is here to give them a fight with one of their smoothest and sexiest routines that they ever did. In this battle of female fury who will come out on top?

For the third round there will be two match ups each. Please follow the links provided and watch each performance. Afterwords,vote for which one you feel was the better routine.

PREVIOUS ROUND RESULTS: They may not have won ABDC but ReQuest manages to repeat history and send Season Five champs, Poreotix home empty handed. However, the biggest shock was that Southern Movement actually got votes up against Fanny Pak. Granted they got less then five but still! Now that the stage is set who will come out on top, the fiery fierceness of ReQuest or the fabulously funky Fanny Pak?
