    August 9th at 9, I believe. I'm willing to give the show another chance, especially since it will give me an excuse to NOT watch Megan Wants a Millionaire.

    Yup, I'll be watching, but only cause Quest Crew (especially HOK!!!) were so outstanding last season! I'll miss Quest Crew, but hopefully the bar will have been raised for all future seasons. And hopefully also, there won't be this silly competition between having a boys' crew win, versus having a girls' crew win. The point is to have the BEST DANCERS win!

    I always found it interesting that both MTV and the fans refer to the group as "Quest Crew", whereas the dancers have never referred to the crew as such, only as "Quest". It seems like this season is going to be the West against the rest, if you've seen the first promo they showed on the ABDC blog.

    The ABDC blog just posted a compilation of what they considered the 5 "game-changing" moments; don't quite agree with it much, particularly the #2 & #3 picks (Beat Freak's magic trick performance and SuperCrew's ninja performance, respectively). Any thoughts on this?

    Supercrew's ninja routine, in all honesty, WAS a game-changer. However I disagree about the BF's magic routine.

    What exactly do they define as "game-changing"?

    Fanny Pak! I love the underdogs. I would have put their prom routine there though, because that's when people started to actually recognize them.

    What makes the Ninja routine a "game-changer"? Might be because I've watched performances by b-boy crews, and not to knock the members of SuperCrew, who are all individually amazing, but I find it difficult to call any performance of they made as a group really a game-changer.

    Anything Supercrew did was underwhelming. I'm still unimpressed by them.

    Ditto! Super Crew is still my least favorite winner by far!

    Fanny Pack made number4 with Get Your Freak On, definitely a number to remember, Quest's Orquestra was number one, which really was well deserved, that was a mind blowing performance.

    Beat Freaks ball trick sucked, that ball carried them throughout the whole performance, they were basically standing still turning around following the ball, thumbs down! The number five pick for Jabbawockeez sucked, I honestly didn't like that particular performance from them.

    Re: Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew - Thursdays at 10pm on MTV

    Looks like the season 4 crews have been announced. From the ABDC MTV Blog:

    AFROBORIKE (Las Vegas, NV) – Comprised of fiery Puerto Ricans and Cubans, Afroborike is a hot Salsa crew ready to bring their own brand of raw and sexy Latin dancing to America. These dancers are hungry to experience the “American dream” and long to have the freedom of movement they have seen in American music videos.

    ARTISTRY IN MOTION (North Hollywood, CA)
    – An all-female crew trying to break the stereotype of “bootyshakers,” they are strong-minded women who bring their own contemporary and original style called “contemp-hop.” Proud feminists, this all-girl group knows their energy, force and sex appeal make them more than capable to take on and dominate any all-male crew in their way.

    BEAT YA FEET KINGS (Washington, D.C.) – This D.C. crew will take the stage with their very own dance style called “Beatin’ Ya Feet.” Their performances consist of a unique mix of footwork that could make them unstoppable. Although their style is currently only known around the D.C. area, the Kings believe they have created something the rest of the world should see and catch up to. Featured on “It’s Showtime at the Apollo” and an MTV inauguration special, they are slowly making their way into the public eye. Combined with their fresh style, this crew also exudes humility and, when they need it most, a hard energy that could make them champions.

    FR3SH (Matawan, NJ) – With a unique blend of jazz and funk, Fr3sh infuses a sense of humor into their choreography and compare themselves to the movie “The Breakfast Club,” priding themselves on being rowdy and rebellious. Their mix of sarcasm, humor, cockiness and raw talent could take them all the way to the top.

    WE ARE HEROES (Los Angeles, CA) – This group of effervescent young women came together from New York, Idaho and as far as Japan to fulfill their dreams of dancing in Hollywood. Growing up in all corners of the globe, they were inspired by everything from Fred Astaire to Michael Jackson and have honed their dancing into something they call “Glam Style,” which they hope is good enough to crown them the first girl crew to win “ABDC.”

    MASSIVE MONKEES (Seattle, WA) – This Seattle crew have grinded their way through national and international competition at the highest level over the past five years. They have won a number of prestigious titles including B-boy Summit 2000 and the World B-boy Championships at Wembley Arena in London, England. The Monkees are actively involved in their community, working at local centers with children, coaching child sports and teaching b-boy classes. They even have their own holiday, as April 26th was dubbed Seattle’s official Massive Monkees Day in 2004. With this much talent and personality, they could be next in the line of b-boy crews to walk away with the $100,000 prize.

    RHYTHM CITY (Bronx, NY) – Struggling on the streets of the Bronx with little to no familial support gave Rhythm City no other option than to stick together, and they intend to use their original style from the Bronx – “the birthplace of hip-hop” – as a secret weapon. The crew has placed highly in an array of dance competitions including Invasion, Blazin’ the Stage, The Main Event, Switzerland’s Dance 2 Dance and, most recently, they won first place at Culture Shock EDC. From living in foster homes to surviving abuse, exposure to life on the streets has taken its toll on each member. As a result, crew leader Alonzo Williams created Rhythm City, a nonprofit organization dedicated to getting kids off the streets and involved in dance.

    SOUTHERN MOVEMENT (Nashville, TN) – Urban cowboys that hail from the country music capitol of the world, this crew fuses hard-hitting hip-hop choreography with country line dancing. They pride themselves on being able to hang in the club one night and a country bar the next. Referring to their style as “Hick-Hop,” this crew plans to bring something unexpected and their main goal is to change the way America views the South and its residents.

    VOGUE EVOLUTION (New York, NY) – The first openly gay crew to ever compete on the “ABDC” stage, the five members of Vogue Evolution are out, proud and determined to live their lives the way they want to. Their distinctive “vogue” style of dance mixed with hip hop makes this crew unique, along with working to educate others on AIDS/HIV awareness. They hope to touch everyone watching with their outspoken flare.
    Not sure if this is the full crew list, but since there's 9 crews listed, it would appear to be so. Almost seems like the producers want an East vs. West vibe this season, particularly with some of the promos they've shown on the blog.
