Season 6

Get ready to move for "America's Best Dance Crew" Season 6! After five spectacular seasons, the new crews are ready to step up to the plate with some amazing skills and fresh moves.

"America's Best Dance Crew 6" will be the season of the superstars, and, for the first time ever, each episode will be themed to a popular celebrity artist. Special guest appearances include Ke$ha, Black Eyed Peas, Katy Perry and Justin Bieber, and themed episodes will be inspired by the hottest names in music including Rihanna, Lil Wayne and more!

We traveled all across the U.S. to find the country's 10 most talented groups, and they'll be putting everything on the line as they fight for the title of America's Best Dance Crew. The dancers know they must leave it all on the floor and give it their best to impress the judges. Only one team can be the winner, and they all want it.

Mario Lopez returns as the host of the new Dance Crew season as do judges JC Chasez and Lil Mama. Joining the judging panel will be Quest Crew's Dominic "D-Trix" Sandoval, and together they are all ready to critique each week's performances in their search for America's Best Dance Crew.

In the first season, JabbaWockeeZ worked the crowd every week with their synchronized moves and signature masks, and were the first to claim the coveted title of America's Best Dance Crew and the $100,000 cash prize. The second time around, it was Super Cr3w who stole the show and all of the ABDC glory. Season three was dominated by Quest Crew and all of their masterful performances. During season four, We Are Heroes walked away as the first all-female group to win the title. And last season was ruled by Poreotix and their robotic style. Which group will be the sixth to join the ranks of the previous winners?

These 10 talented and determined dance crews will pop, jump, sway, stomp and step their way to the top. This competition is fierce and they know what's at stake as they face each other in the ultimate challenge for dance supremacy.

After the votes are tallied, the two crews with the fewest votes must battle it out on the dance floor in order to get the chance to advance to the next round. One by one, the groups will be sent home, and in the end, only one group will be able to call themselves "America's Best Dance Crew."

"Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew" is executive produced by "American Idol" judge Randy Jackson, Joel Gallen (Tenth Planet Productions), Josh Greenberg ("The Sing Off"), Hip Hop International's creators Howard Schwartz and Karen Schwartz, Rob Lee (Bayonne Entertainment), Harriet Sternberg and Abe Hoch (both of Dream Merchant 21 Entertainment). Craig Erwich, Brooke Karzen and Drew Tappon are the executives overseeing the project for Warner Horizon Television ("The Bachelor," "The Bachelorette," upcoming "The Voice"). Lauren Dolgen and Kristina Edwards are the executives overseeing the project for MTV.

The second episode will feature five crews from the East and the regional arc will conclude in the third episode with five competing crews from the West. Show judges JC Chasez, Lil Mama and Omarion will eliminate two crews in each of these first few episodes and send the remaining three on to contend for the $100,000 cash prize and the title of "America's Best Dance Crew" as part of the final nine Season Five crews to participate.

"America's Best Dance Crew" is hosted by Mario Lopez and shot on location in Los Angeles as dance crews of five to seven members perform their hottest moves for dance supremacy and a $100,000 cash prize. Every performance-themed episode gives insight into the crews' emotion, spirit and inspiration as they step up to the challenge and showcase their innovative choreography and skills.
