Oh snap, you guys! At MTV’s upfront ceremony, the net confirmed that it’s bringing back the dance-tactic series, ‘America’s Best Dance Crew’– and you won’t believe who is on board to judge!
Heck. Yes. MTV has basically made all our mid-2000s dreams come true: the net has announced that it will revive its dance competition series America’s Best Dance Crew! The Randy Jackson-produced series originally aired from 2008-2012, and garnered itself a ton of fans. Now this summer, on July 29, the series will return, for a new edition called America’s Best Dance Crew: Road to the VMAs. Better yet, the revived series will feature an all star judging panel including Frankie Grande, T-Pain, and recording artist Teyana Taylor!
‘America’s Best Dance Crew’ Returning To MTV
Everything old is new again!
MTV has just confirmed that it will revive America’s Best Dance Crew, the dancing competition series that ran for four years and seven seasons. That’s not even the best news, though! Along with the show’s return, MTV also announced that joining the series as judges would be Frankie Grande, as well as T-Pain and Teyana Taylor. Entertainment Tonight‘s Jason Dundas will host the competition.
For those who don’t recall, the series features several dance crews, in an American Idol-style elimination series, all competing for a $100,000 grand prize. Notable winners include the dance crew the JabbaWockeeZ, who, after winning, went on to tour the world and continue to perform to this day.
‘ABDC’ Is Back
Frankie, T-Pain and Teyanna join a stacked roster of past judges. Previous season of America’s Best Dance Crew included JC Chasez, Lil Mama, Shane Sparks, Omarion and D-Trix.
Are you guys excited to see ABDC return? How do you think Frankie and the others will be as judges?
