Preview from the Pressbox - Chris Trondsen on the VMA Challenge

Here's the rest of Chris Trondsen's write-up. Thanks Chris!

"Anyone who has seen commercials for this week’s episode of “America’s Best Dance Crew” knows they have been hyping up this opening dance tribute to Michael Jackson. Let me tell you, in my opinion, it’s worth it. It was crazy to see all the four remaining crews dance together and they all worked really well together. It was weird (but in a good way) to see the males of Afroborike lift female members of other crews. And you have to watch it on Sunday to find out who they have playing the role of Michael Jackson. He plays it well.

One of the crew in the bottom 2 got the biggest reaction from any performance from the audience this entire season. To say they killed the performance is an understatement. I think you really see why this crew is in the final three. They had the entire crowd screaming and on their feet, and received almost flawless reviews from the judges. The crowd has NOT reacted this positively to any performance all season.

The other bottom 2 crew had a VERY impressive performance that drew loud crowd applause, but not as much as the crew that went before them. However, their performance was good enough to sway one judge.

Many of us in the Press area felt that even though the crew the judges saved had a better night, the crew they sent home had a better season overall. It really shows you that on ABDC, it’s really your most recent performance that matters most. It was hard to see the crew get sent home. It was a real emotional good bye from the crew’s captain and I don’t personally think it was their time.

At the end of the show, Mario announced that next week’s challenge is going to be a dancer’s challenge where they have to pay homage to some of the best dancers in the game. Should be interesting to see how the remaining crews do!"
