Video: IaMmE - "Valid like Salad"

So glad to see most of the IaMmE crew (ABDC Season 6) working together -- their individual talents mix together as well as... salad. This green video has some great moves, and the credits (particularly Emilio) are well --- interesting. From IaMmECrew Youtube.

Video: Matt Cady (Fanny Pak) dances on Glee

Matt Cady, leader of Fanny Pak (ABDC Seasons 2 and 7) was one of the backup dancers on the Diva episode of Glee that aired February 7, 2013. I wish shows like this would give more airtime and credit to the dancers!

New weekly video feature from WOD: Dance Cinematics

World of Dance is expanding their online offerings with a new weekly feature called Dance Cinematics. From their website: "The series is about the artistic identity of dancers through their inspirations, their creations and their lifestyle and directed by Charlie Luccini". The first episode features krump, house, and abstract dancing by an international cast including Shash'u, Meech, Miss Prissy, Skorpion, and Big Ryat. 

Video: Glitch - Dubstep meets Gangnam style

Every time I vow not to click on any more Gangnam style, another interpretation comes along to make the song (almost) fresh. This time it's Cyrus "Glitch" Spencer (So You Think You Can Dance runner up). From 28glitch Youtube.

Videos: K-pop group bites IaMmE's Last Chance Challenge

As described by Popdust, K-Pop group Purplay released a teaster video that is a direct steal from IaMmE's Last Chance Challenge on America's Best Dance Crew Season 6. "The video soon made its way to I.aM.mE’s head choreographer, Di “Moon” Zhang, who tweeted: “this kpop group just bite all my crew shit , come on,” with a link to Purplay’s teaser."

Watch and judge for yourself.

Video: IaMmE (minus Chachi) - Cry (Just a Little)

Brandon Harrell choreographed this routine for most of his IaMmE mates (winners of ABDC Season 6). From showoff747 Youtube. Thanks Greg!

HQ Video: All.Young.All.Stars 1st Place | World of Dance Montreal

I know we posted this video earlier, but here's a better quality version of the All.Young.All.Stars 1st Place (Junior Division) performance at the World of Dance Montreal.  The crew is made up of girls from Flip (HHI Junior Silver Medalists).  NOTE: I actually attended this show, so I know... this was the VERY first performance of the night and the music levels were NOT properly adjusted yet.  Plus, the crowd was really hype!...  So even in this video, you'll have trouble hearing the music.  But it's certainly still worth the watch! From WORLDOFDANCETOUR YouTube.

Music Video: Sammy J - "Fall In Love" | directed by Parris Goebel

This young lady never ceases to amaze me... Here's a nice, smooth music video for Sammy J's "Fall In Love".  It features cameos from New Zealand's Royal Family (HHI Gold winners) and was filmed, edited, and directed by Parris Goebel.  This girl is on fire!... From Sammy J YouTube.
