Reader Sassy is in Las Vegas at Hip Hop International and posted her opinions on some of the crews competing in the International preliminary round:
Wow what a night!!
Happy with the Results....
--The Crew- Wow, if they wouldn't have stepped up this year than
Philippines would not be represting in the Finals cause PAS took a STEP
DOWN from Last Year, disappointing. these guys are such a breath of
fresh air with their originality.
--Neutral Zone- Their Gimmick = Creative. I would've never thought to
dress up as a old man and Go Hard. The reason i want these guys to win
is because they are the only crew in the Finals whose Routine is telling
a story rather than just Cool Tricks.
--AOV- hands down the Most Creative Crew of the bunch when it comes
to moves. I think these guys might be the greatest USA Championship
winner ever. Yes, even better than Poreotics.
--Elektrolytes- Just one of those cool and entertaining routines that
make you smile. They definitely have Better Choreo in this than they
did in every single ABDC Routine Combined
--Rockwell Family- YES! YES! YES! These guys finally made the World
Finals!! WHOOOOO! My Favorite Canadian Crew EVER!! I love the Routine,
very elegant style and such Great Choreo!!
--Brooklyn- Move Over Elektrolytes, these guys are a True Underdog
Story. South Africa is probably going Crazy Right Now. I can't believe
Africa is finally representing in the Finals. I'm so Happy!
-- So United Crew- These Guys, while they may not be Original, are
entertaining. I think they might have The Best Stunt out of all the
Crews where one guy does One Handed Handstand and then Just Drops On His
Head. HIS HEAD.
--SNV Crew- One of the Better choreo crews here but they will
probably end up getting 7th or 8th. I still love these guys and can't
wait to see them again though.
