More on America's Best Dance Crew return: show will feature previous winning crews!

Information is trickling out about the relaunch of America's Best Dance Crew in Summer 2015. According to an article in The Christian Post, Susanne Daniels (MTV Programming President) said that winning crews from prior seasons of ABDC will return for the new season. Thanks for the tip, Weout here!

The return of winners would certainly make the show more likely to attract viewers, though it's not clear from that statement whether the winners will compete or just perform as guests. I am skeptical about the drawing power of the winners without other enticements though -- I remember that Poreotics (ABDC Season 5 winners) competed on the last season of So You Think You Can Dance in their crew competition -- and lost to a tap group called Syncopated Ladies.
