Hype Crew from "America's Got Talent 2013" is one of the Top 60 acts in Season 8 of the NBC talent competition series. The dance crew previously competed as Hype 5-0 crew in Season 5 of the MTV reality series "America's Best Dance Crew" (ABDC), on which they came in third place overall and initially competed against the crews from the West coast.

"America's Got Talent"

Hype is a mega-crew from Hawaii made up of 30-plus dancers from all over the U.S. Representing the crew on "America's Got Talent," is Josh Ulep aka Hazmat, AJ Pak aka Headache, and Mikey Ruiz. The three of them met as competitors and have now joined together in Hawaii at the dance studio they run, where they also teach. These three talented and humorous dancers bring tricks, technique, comedy and a little bit of sexy to the stage in new and creative ways to capture the audience and judges. Their song choices will take you by surprise as well - they like to put their hip-hop moves to the unexpected.

"America's Best Dance Crew"

Driven to prove that Hawaii has a thriving hip-hop community, Hype 5-0 is out to show there is more to Hawaii than swaying grass skirts and coconut bras. With limited funds for travel, the crew has honed their skills by spending countless hours on the Internet studying crews from the mainland. Now after conquering the island dance scene with imported moves this hard-hitting crew is ready to export themselves to the mainland and take the "ABDC" stage by storm. They have immense Hawaiian pride and incorporate native dance moves in all of their routines.
