Another Atlanta crew bites the dust on MTV’s ‘America’s Best Dance Crew’

Two weeks, two Atlanta crews flushed down the toilet on MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew.” Royal Flush came up with a losing hand Thursday night a week after Swagger Crew swaggered home.

Royal Flush ep 4

Royal Flush was among two groups with the fewest votes. They competed in a “sudden death” dance competition with Blueprint Cru. The judges made the final call.

Lil Mama, Omarion and JC Chasez, based on their critiques, were split but Blueprint Cru had a tougher job, especially with a handstand move. It was a close call. Royal Flush, paying homage to Cascada’s “Evacuate the Dance Floor,” opened strong, lost a bit of steam, featured a corny card trick, then ended it with a cool card trick featuring one dancer spitting out cards.

So that just leaves the strongest of the three Atlanta crews: Jungle Boogie.

Stone Mountain’s Jungle Boogie were told they were safe early on. They needed to imitate steps from Shakira’s video of “Give It Up To Me.” The lone female Raqi Carter was placed front and center to ape Shakira’s steps. She did a good job. And the group incorporated some of their “crankin’ ” moves with step moves fairly cleanly.

Lil Mama: “Raqi is bringing the extra sexy to the building. You are so powerful, it doesn’t matter you’re the only girl in the group. You appreciate art. You appreciate dance.”

Omarion: “I’m surprised you stepped your sexy game [to Raqi.]”

JC: “I loved the stepping. Some of you guys were apprehensive. Make it count.”

Jungle Boogie has a realistic shot to make the final three.

Royal Flush should have been gone last week instead of Swagger Crew.

I hope America votes correctly this week, because the wrong crews have ended up in the Sudden Death round for the past couple of weeks. Royal Flush, while not the best, should have stayed and Soltare (sp?) should have been sent home. They proved last night that while they are awesome jumpers, they can’t properly incorporate dance into their routines without being sloppy.

I didn’t think that it was a good idea for a crew to dance to one of the judge’s videos! That idea should have been rethought!
