The Final Showdown

18Aug08

Sorry for the delayed post, but since Fanny Pak isn’t on the show anymore, I am not excited as much for ABDC. But this past episode was the final showdown between H-town’s “SoReal Cru” and Vegas’ “Super Cr3w”. Each group had to come up with three dance routines – around the world challenge, original dance craze and their own last chance performance. 

The show felt kind of different without Fanny Pak, so I kept flipping channels between ABDC and the Olympics. But overall, I thought both crews gave a good performance and I think it’s really hard to say which crew will win this season especially since both have such a large large fan base. Although I will always and forever wish that Fanny Pak was still there. Yeah, I’m slowly recovering. 

Here are my thoughts:

Around the world challenge: This one goes to Super Cr3w, since I thought their performance was very creative with how they incorporated the different dances from Africa, Latin America, Caribbean, and India. That move that Vex and Rockadile did (don’t know the name, but the one where they were cross legged) was crazy. Super Cr3w pulled a lot of crazy bboy moves that this challenge totally goes to them! As for SoReal Cru, their performance seemed out of sync and it was totally out of their element. But I give them a few points for trying though. 

Original dance craze: The challenge for this performance was for the crews to create a dance move that anyone can do. Super Cr3w’s dance craze was “Throw the S to the chest” and SoReal’s was “Smash it Up”. I loved Super Cr3w’s hook, but like what the judges said, not everyone can attempt to do their bboy dance moves, therefore, SoReal’s corny, but yet, catchy “Smash it Up” line mixed with their “explosion” handshake takes one for the team. 

Last chance challenge: This dance challenge was their final performance and each crew got to choose any song they want. Super Cr3w chose “Give It Up, Turn It Loose” by James Brown and SoReal Cru chose “A Milli” by Lil’ Wayne. And I must say in Shane Spark’s favorite quote, SoReal Cru “ripped it”. Loved how they totally called out Super Cr3w twice during their performance (as Hannibal Lecter eating them & pointing at the banner to the words “drop em”). They picked the right song and it was bumpin’ right from the beginning. This was SoReal Cru’s best performance of the season! As for Super Cr3w, they represented for their bboy family and showed off their bboy skills to the T, but I think SoReal took this one. 

Can’t wait for next week’s final episode since Fanny Pak will be back! But it’s time to hear what you guys think of this past episode and your thoughts on who might win this season for ABDC.

    if you were to put a different song on SoReal Cru’s last performance, then it would have been totally different, like it would have been “ok”! Lil’ Wayne is the hottest rapper out here right now and that’s what made it 10 times better for SoReal.

    Super Crew told a story in their performance! and i hope you saw that. SoReal had to bash on Super Crew to get the “WoW Factor”

    Scuba Squad: Yeah, I agree with that if SRC didn’t have that song, their performance would have been “ok”. Thanks for your comment!
