MTV will heat up this summer when six all-star dance crews — including five previous champions — take to the “America’s Best Dance Crew” (“ABDC”) stage to battle for dance supremacy and cement their “ABDC” legacy. Dream match-ups become reality as seasons clash and crews face off in the ultimate battle to see who is the best of the best. The five returning crews include Super Cr3W (season 2 champions), Quest Crew (season 3 champions), We Are Heroes (season 4 champions), I.aM.mE (season 6 champions) and Elektrolytes (season 7 champions); taking the “ABDC” stage for the first time is Kinjaz (which include members from season 1 crews Jabbawockeez and Kaba Modern). “ABDC” is hosted by Jason Dundas (“Entertainment Tonight”) and the judging panel includes hip hop superstar T-Pain, G.O.O.D. Music recording artist Teyana Taylor and television and Broadway performer Frankie Grande.
MTV will reinvent the hit competition series with six all-new “Video Music Award”–themed episodes. Each week the all-star crews will have to create routines inspired by “VMA”-related elements and challenges. The winner will be crowned in the live finale episode, set to air as the lead-in to the “2015 MTV Video Music Awards” Pre-Show on Sunday, August 30th at 4:00pm ET/PT.
