America’s Best Dance Crew Season 6: Week 4 – Katy Perry


americas best dance crew week 4 katy perry

Ok, I was a little more impressed this week, but I still feel like this is the weakest season yet. IaMmE still seems like one of the strongest groups in the competition and I feel like they are definitely one of the most popular groups. Other than that though I don’t find myself even enjoying the other groups… at all.

The performances this week were all about Katy Perry and just like last week I really don’t want to break down each group individually as I’ve done in the past, so I’m just going to start rambling. First of all IaMmE’s performance was on par with what they’ve done in the past. I liked it, but it didn’t blow me away. I found the same to be true with Phunk Phenomenon. Prior to this weeks performances I felt like these 2 groups were the strongest in the competition and while they are still up there I feel that Street Kingdom is finally starting to win me over.

Street Kingdom’s performance last night was the best of the season so far. I know I’ve given them shit over the past couple weeks because I couldn’t get into krump and didn’t really understand it, but with the performance this week I can officially say that they have changed my mind. There is so much intensity in the moves that it’s almost exhausting to watch, but in a good way. They had a good deal of choreography mixed in with the krumping this time which made it much more enjoyable to me so I hope they stick with it.

787 Crew kind of bored me as they have in the past and so did Instant Noodles. Both crews just couldn’t live up to the powerful moves that Street Kingdom delivered so it left me completely uninterested. Instant Noodles also seemed like they were all over the place and out of sync at times, moves weren’t clean and it was just boring. Which brings me to ICONic Boyz… I’m sorry, but D-Trix is right, these guys need to go. They can’t match the skill and talent of some of the older, more experienced groups and you can only vote for “cute” for so long. I wish they would have been booted this week instead of ReQuest Crew, but since the voting was based off last weeks performances that obviously wasn’t going to happen. Hopefully people wise up to the fact that they don’t have the skill or experience needed to be crowned America’s Best Dance Crew right now. That’s not to say that down the road after they’ve grown a bit and learned some more tricks and harder moves, that they couldn’t be a definite contender for the title, but with the lack of experience and skill I think they need to move out of the way and let the big boys play. I honestly think that ReQuest Crew deserved to stay more than ICONic Boyz did… even maybe more so than Instant Noodles, but I’m not a judge so what do I know.

So that’s what I got for this week. I know a lot of people don’t share my same opinion, which is totally fine, but lets hear what you liked about some of these groups. Feel free to comment or vote on your favorite group for this week below.
