A guide to America's Best Dance Crew

America's Best Dance Crew is an American, competitive, dance reality television show that mainly features street dancers competing against each other to win the competition. It is produced by the judge from the American Pop idol, Randy Jackson and airs in the U.S on MTV. This article provides you with a guide to America's Best Dance Crew.

The show

The show is hosted by former Saved By The Bell Star Mario Lopez and sees contestants competing for a $100,000 grand prize for the best leaders who win the final. Each week, the crews are given a challenge which is different for each crew, but has the same general concept of performing in front of an audience, often coming from some of the best cities in America, before that the dances are rated by the judges. Judging panel During the last series, which was series six and was aired in 2011, the judging panel consisted of JC Chasez, Lil Mama and D-Trix. In previous series, Omarion and Shane Sparks were also on the judging panel. As well as the main show, each week there is a results show, again hosted by Mario Lopez, who reveals which group has come in the bottom two. Both groups perform and the judges decide which group is eliminated whilst the winning group remain in the competition. Furthermore, each week the winning crew receives a Golden B-Boy Trophy which is a golden statue of a B- Boy doing a freeze dance move with the legs moving like a bobblehead.
