Video: Mariah & Bluprint on So You Think You Can Dance: "Bring the Noize"

On the Top 18 So You Think You Can Dance Season 10 show, BluPrint escaped elimination and danced with Mariah to M.I.A's "Bring The Noize". Luther Brown choreographed this frantic routine. Unfortunately, Jade (the other animator in SYTYCD Top 18) left the show because of injury.

Compare/contrast: Keone & Mariel Madrid's "Dangerous" choreo for SYTYCD vs. their performance at UDC

Keone and Mariel Madrid have joined the choreographer pool at So You Think You Can Dance. Their routine in the Top 18 show for Season 10 was choreographing Jenna and Tucker dancing to Michael Jackson's "Dangerous". Compare that to their own dancing to that number at Urban Dance Camp in September 2012. Thanks for the videos, Ninjaboi!

Video Flashback: Philippine Allstars on the America's Best Dance Crew stage in 2008!

In 2008, after Philippine Allstars won the World Championship at Hiphop International, they traveled to Los Angeles and danced on the America's Best Dance Crew stage during one of the tapings. It wasn't shown for the TV audience, but I heard raves about it from people who attended the tapings. Here's a just-released video of that performance from Official HHI. Thanks ninjaboi!

Hip Hop International -- who's competing this year?

Hip Hop International released the lists of United States and World competitors for this year, and the talent is amazing in all divisions. Here's the United States list and the International list. 
HHI runs August 6-11 in Las Vegas. If you can, you should try to attend -- definitely the finals, but all the events if possible. DirtfaceX will interview some of the dancers for us, but there's no substitute for the live event. Click here for the schedule and to buy tickets!
