In Montpellier France, 19 of the world's best b-boy crews faced-off on November 17, 2012 in the world championship of breakdancing, the Braun Battle of the Year (BOTY).

After an epic night of b-boy action French crew Vagabonds were crowned the 2012 Braun Battle of the Year champions for the second year in a row after an electric battle against Flooriorz of Japan. Vagabonds secured their victory with another signature display of incredible power moves, fast and furious footwork and choreographed routines that left the crowd whooping in delight.  Judge Niek Traa, said afterwards: "It's well deserved. You could see the difference in the quality of their show. It really stood out. And they didn't make any mistakes in the final battle."
