Fanny Pak on America's Best Dance Crew - Week 5

This week on “America’s Best Dance Crew” the five remaining crews take on the music of Rihanna after the judges saved both crews and sent no one home.

The night’s entertainment opens with a massive five crew performance that included trampolines, props, and lots of gymnastics to “We Found Love”.

The challenge for the crews this week is to use various props to make a bold statement in their routines.

The school kids of Rated Next Generation faced elimination but this week became one of the top three crews. The crew must perform a “cool hat routine” in their routine. D-Trix called the performance the crew’s best of the season and noted the crew was living in the groove. Lil Mama love how they opened up the performance and used the stage; adding that the crew was groovin’. JC felt that the routine started a little slow; saying that it wasn’t his favourite performance but he did like it.

The youngsters of 8 Flavahz had to use a fire effect in their routine to “Birthday Cake”. The girls chose to use real fire and a large birthday cake prop. JC called the routine fun with great moments but cautioned the girls about being repetitive. D-Trix loved the routine; saying they took the challenge and were smart. Lil Mama said the girls were on fire adding that they sold the routine but agreed with JC about being able to do better.

The final safe crew was the dance teachers of Mos Wanted Crew who made a visit to their dance students for a little inspiration. The crew’s prop challenge was to use jackets in their routine, and the guys took it a little further and used trench coats. Lil Mama said the routine was confident and tastesul; adding that the crew were gentlemen and she enjoyed it. JC said the crew woke him up and he was so glad that they got to perform again; JC added that the crew was feeling the music and had musicality in their performance. D-Trix said the crew stole the show and showed that they are a crew that wants to win.

The two bottom crews would battle it out before the judges made their remarks, Elektrolytes performed first and had to use a microphone stand in their performance to Rihanna’s current hit “Where have You Been”. Lil Mama called the crew clever with strength, and teamwork; she added that the crew’s framework was amazing. JC said the crew had energy, and diversity in their performance; but noted that the crew started the routine a little sloppy.

Finding themselves in the bottom two again the crew of Fanny Pak had to use military drills and drill guns in their performance. D-Trix said that he didn’t get why the crew was in the bottom and their performances were 3D; he added that they did a great job and were true to themselves. JC said that the crew’s performances were art and noted that they thought about the message in their routine.

After being eliminated in season two, Fanny Pak made it back on the show in season seven only to find themselves in the bottom two four weeks in a row; and while they were saved last week, the crew could not escape seeing their banner fall this week and were eliminated from the competition.

Elektrolytes are safe to join Mos Wanted Crew, 8 flavahz, and Rated Next Generation as the final four. Next week the crews will take on the music of the party rockers LMFAO and ABDC winners Quest Crew returns to the dance floor.
