Each week, millions of dance lovers tuned in to Americas Best Dance Crew to watch groups of kids from across the nation pull off moves that would cause the normal human to break a hip or crack a kneecap. A beat would erupt from the speakers and it was on. The crew would storm the dance floor, hype as hell and ready to pop, lock, and drop it. You would have to be a total dud to avoid the infectious energy those kids emitted. Even the shows host Mario Lopez probably felt like he was back on Saved by the Bell surrounded by all of those perky high school kids.
More than 39 million fans voted Super Cr3w into the winning spot this season, and Thursday night you can cast your own imaginary vote when the crew battles ASIID, Fanny Pak, and winners from season one, when Randy Jackson presents Americas Best Dance Crew Live at the Waterfront Theatre at the American Airlines Arena. The show begins at 7:30. Tickets start at $28.75; get yours at www.ticketmaster.com.
