Gilbert, AZ Elektrolytes Win – take home the ABDC $100,00 prize

ABDC – The Gilbert, Arizona crew Elektrolytes won the America’s Best Dance Crew title over the HawaiiLos Angeles based 8Flavahz in the America’s Best Dance Crew (ABDC) finale on Wednesday on MTV!  Elektrolytes came back from the brink of elimination the previous week to defeat the favored all-female crew 8Flavahz in a night where the guest artist was Katy Perry!

ABDC: Elektrolytes, Worth the Wait.

Elektrolytes took home the $100,00 prize after being together for 6 years but it was certainly worth the wait on ABDC.

The win was not a shocker for the boys from Arizona but after 8Flavahz tallied the most votes last week, the all-girls crew were touted as the favorites.   It was probably fate that Elektrolytes would win ABDC after they defeated heavy favorite Mos Wanted in a dance-off battle from the week before.

The loss for 8Flavahz, the youngest dance crew in ABDC history (from ages 12-17 years old), may have been bitter but time may be on their side.   The young group performed way above expectations, even surprassing another Hawaii-based group Hype 5-0, who made the semi-finals 2 years ago.  8Flavahz represented Hawaii and Los Angeles well and the work of choreographers Marcelo Pacleb and Kelsey Park from the dance studio 24-VII Danceforce was simply outstanding.  We will not hear the last of 8Flavahz, for sure.

ABDC: Elektrolytes Make Comeback in Finale!

The all-male crew were the underdogs in the finale but they didn’t show it in a comeback performance that would eventually prove they deserved to win.  The season finale had Elektrolytes and 8Flavahz dancing from the songs from Katy Perry’s autobiographical/concert film “Part of Me.”

Both crews danced to the Perry’s new single “Wide Awake” which was a great performance.  Then, Elektrolytes invited the crew Poreotix, the season 5 champions, to join them in a dance routine to “Part of Me.”

8Flavahz invited the season 4 champs We Are Heroes to join them on to “T.G.I.F.”   While the performance by 8Flavahz and We Are Heroes was good, the routine by Elektrolytes and Poreotix was better!

 ABDC: Elektrolytes Wins the Title

In the end, after all the blood, sweat, and tears, Elektrolytes wins the ABDC title and a fitting tribute for the Arizona crew that had worked so hard up to that point, beating an all-female crew in 8Flavahz that has youth and high expectations by their side!
