Poreotix Win 'America's Best Dance Crew'It was an international showdown on the 'America's Best Dance Crew' season 5 finale (Thu., 10PM ET on MTV) last night: Poreotix, a robotic group hailing from Westminster, Calif., versus Canada's the Blueprint Cru. "Fifteen million votes were cast and this is the narrowest margin of victory in 'ABDC' history," said host Mario Lopez.

Before the winner was announced, the two street dance crews united to perform a high energy step routine together. But there could be only one winner of the $100,000 prize ...

The champions? Poreotix! Do you think they are the rightful winners? Check out their moves.

Flaming Jump Ropes Rock 'America's Best Dance Crew' (VIDEO)

America's Best Dance Crew, Flaming Jump RopesOmarion said pretty much what we were thinking while watching the flaming jump ropes on 'Randy Jackson Presents: America's Best Dance Crew' (Thu., 10PM ET on MTV).

"What I'm thinking to myself while I'm watching it is, if they mess up this fire, there's somebody ass is gonna be on fire." Yeah, seriously. Props to the fire jumpers.

Then again, those jackets look flame retardant, so maybe it wouldn't have been a complete blaze of glory. And Gabourey Sidibe looked like she loved it.

America's Best Dance Crew, Jungle BoogieIt may not have been the best performance of the night (weigh in with your opinion!), but Jungle Boogie's was definitely the most provocative on 'Randy Jackson Presents: America's Best Dance Crew' (Thu., 10PM ET on MTV).

And some of those moves? Not humanly possible. Yep, some of those folks are freaks of nature – in a good way.

"The upside down bit was a bit clumsy, but the commitment to the naughty was nice," said JC Chasez. Couldn't have said it better ourselves.

America's Best Dance CrewHere's a couple of red-hot performances from 'America's Best Dance Crew' (Thurs., 10PM ET on MTV). The first features a wild number that looks like a cross between the Robot and Michael Jackson's 'Thriller.'

Then holy cow, out came the jump ropes, along with some killer moves that required precise timing to pull off. From where we stand, either one of these would make the grade.

Omarion'America's Best Dance Crew' returns to MTV tonight at 10PM ET with dance crews from every corner of the country ready to throw down their moves and make their marks in the competition. High-energy and swelling with catchy beats, the show is kicking off its fifth season of pitting groups of young, hip-hop influenced dancers against each other for the top honors (and a cash prize).

This season, R&B wunderkind Omarion is joining 'ABDC' as a judge. He's replacing choreographer Shane Sparks, who in December was arrested on felony charges of child molestation. Sparks served as a judge on 'ABDC' alongside Lil' Mama and former *NSYNC member JC Chasez since the series launched in 2008.

Mario Lopez and Randy JacksonBreak out your poppin' fresh moves, because 'America's Best Dance Crew' is coming back to MTV. Season 5 of the Randy Jackson-produced series, which pits different dance groups against each other in order to win over a panel of judges and the voting public alike, premieres tonight at 10PM ET. This year, R&B singer Omarion will be replacing Shane Sparks as a new judge alongside regulars JC Chasez and Lil Mama.

Here's the network's rundown of the 15 new crews who'll dance off for the title of America's best. Just based on names alone, my vote would have to go for Jungle Boogie from Stone Mountain, Ga., and Hype 5-0 from Honolulu, Hawaii.

Looking at the list, who do you think has the goods to stand alongside the likes of We Are Heroes and the JabbaWockeeZ?

Oprah's real time with Christian Siriano and Adam Lambert

christian_soriano_bravoIf things don't work out for Project Runway winner Christian Siriano in the fashion biz, he might want to consider a full-time gig as a talk show diva. As the number one guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show today, Christian was fierce, fun and oh-so-comfy that at times I thought Ms. O had her own little Ed McMahon or Andy Richter... but with a lot more style.

Oprah devoted the show to reality TV and the big get was Adam Lambert, the runner up in last season's American Idol. You wouldn't have guessed he was second place based on the assertion by Oprah that he was the top choice of her viewers when asked which reality star they wanted to see on her show.

I know I'm cynical, but I think it was planned. Adam's album is coming out on November 23 and there's already been lots of buzz, including the CD cover.

Mario LopezMario Lopez is a busy man.

Between his ongoing hosting duties for 'Extra' and 'America's Best Dance Crew', as well as his recurring guest role as a plastic surgeon on 'Nip/Tuck,' you wouldn't think he'd have enough time to catch his breath, much less use it to give us the inside scoop on all his upcoming projects.

Yet that's just what he did when AOL TV caught up to him recently, telling us all about the 'Saved By the Bell' reunion, the new children's book he co-wrote with his sister and his ongoing search for a new canine friend. So check out what he had to say, but watch out: you may get exhausted just reading about his amazing schedule.

America's Best Dance Crew is boring me so far this season

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 24th 2009 10:04AM
Artistry in MotionAmerica's Best Dance Crew is three weeks into its new season, and it's still kind of boring. It's gotten so bad, that this week as host Mario Lopez was declaring safe crews, I realized that I'm not recognizing most of them right away. So You Think You Can Dance had the same problem this summer; nobody dynamic really jumping out for the longest time.

America doesn't seem to know who to vote for either, because their "safe" crews each week look like they're being drawn out of a hat. Just this week, the bottom two crews by America's vote gave the best two performances of the night by a landslide.

Another So You Think You Can Dance alum on America's Best Dance Crew

by Michael Pascua, posted Aug 3rd 2009 4:30PM
Donyelle Jones with Benji Schwimmer on So You Think You Can DanceWe continue the trend of reality show dance contestants showing up on other reality shows. Last season of America's Best Dance Crew Dominic (D-Trix), Hok, and Ryan, former contestants on So You Think You Can Dance, were part of Quest Crew and won. In the newest season, SYTYCD, finalist Donyelle Jones is part of Artistry in Motion.

The camera training and cross-genre training will definitely come in handy for Donyelle and her crew. Seeing how well Quest Crew succeeded, I'm sure there is already an established Donyelle fan base that can help her team survive early elimination.

So You Think You Can Dance: 2 of 6 Voted Off

Melissa and Evan dance the quickstep(S05E21) I'm happy to hear Cat announce that the filler in this episode would be the four Emmy nominated performances. It would actually be interesting if next season they could try a "Where are they now?" segment on the results shows.

The eliminations weren't shocking to me, but watching Cat announce that Jeanine and Brandon were the two that didn't have to perform solos was a relief and a pain. They had the best performances last night.

America's Best Dance Crew back in August, but moves to Sunday

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 8th 2009 12:31PM
JabbaWockeeZConsidering how often MTV re-airs all of its original programming, I don't think it really matters when a show first airs on the network, but it's still bold moving Randy Jackson Presents: America's Best Dance Crew to Sundays at 9PM ET for its eight episode fourth season. Previous seasons have aired on Thursdays at 10PM ET. The show brought in big numbers in its Thursday slot, so methinks MTV is hoping to grow the brand. Maybe some cross-appreciation with So You Think You Can Dance could do it.

Shane Sparks recently appeared on SYTYCD with a couple of less-than-impressive choreographed numbers. Maybe Nigel would allow him to pimp the new season of ABDC there. Or bring in JabbaWockeeZ or one of the other past teams to dance on a results show of SYTYCD. How hot would that be? Speaking of, the new season of ABDC is preluded by a special highlighting the top ten dance performances ever on the show August 2 at 9PM ET. There've been some pretty sick performances on the show, so this is a must-see!
