Getting Sucked Into America’s Best Dance Crew

A couple of months ago, I was sitting in the living room over at the Kimchi Ninja’s, place hanging out with a few people when I was asked if I wanted to watch America’s Best Dance Crew.

“What’s America’s Best Dance Crew?” I asked. I almost thought they were joking as that couldn’t possibly be the name of a real TV show.

There was a pause as everyone stopped what they were doing and looked at me.

“You don’t know what America’s Best Dance Crew is?” someone asked. I don’t remember who but everyone was thinking the same thing so what does it matter.

I went home later, confused about this show I never heard of. I chalked it up as some random show that only my friend and a handful of people watched.

That was the first time I ever heard about the show. Turns out, it wouldn’t be the last time.

The next day I turned on the TV as background noise as I worked on my laptop and MTV was showing America’s Best Dance Crew. My sister came home later that day and mentioned that she wanted to watch America’s Best Dance Crew, which was on the DVR. Later, I found out another good friend watched the show. The whole world was watching ABDC but me. It’s like no one ever told me because they knew I would make fun of the show before grudgingly accepting that it was good.

Before I knew it, I was hooked too.

I became quite attached to one crew in particular, Supreme Soul. Not only were they from the Bay Area but I really like their style. A couple of weeks ago, they were booted off so I dedicated my voting efforts to make sure that the other crew I thought was cool, Super Crew, would not suffer the same fate – getting voted off the show while other mediocre crews stayed on.

Last night was a pivotal episode as Super Crew was pitted against Fanny Pak to determine who would get to go on to the next show. Meanwhile, the third crew, So Real Cru, was already safe as they had the most votes despite the fact that they are not as good as the other two crews. A travesty as this was entirely unfair.

Both crews danced awesomely last night and despite the fact that I was favoring Super Crew, I thought for sure that the judges would pick Fanny Pak to move on to the finals. But they went with Super Crew. I was happy to see Super Crew move on but sad that this was the end for Fanny Pak.

Until next week…

Vote for Super Crew folks. They MUST win over So Real Cru.
