americas best new show

so ive got a new show that i absolutely love! serio. i got hooked a few weeks ago when i called in sick for cramps (i know, who am i? jamie in hs?). so as i was getting ready to leave my mans pad to be crampalicious at my own apt, i caught an ep and couldnt leave the couch. ok ok ok, i know youre gonna laugh when i reveal the name of this show but please, finish this post before unleashing your laughter... the show is: randy jackson presents americas best dance crew. i know. this totally falls under the same category as laguna beach, the hills, even 2gether! yes, it was a show i vowed to protest only to get sucked in during a random showing at a random hour on a random day.

so as i watched in amazement, i knew i had to eventually get up off the couch and leave so i recorded the show and left my mans pad. when i got back to my apt, i saw my sis and told her about my newfound love of this show. she, of course, laughed in my face and shook her head mumbling, who is my sister. ha! well i was the last one laughing bc a few days later le join calls me saying she caught a late night ep of the show and yes, it amazed her too and she is now a fan. booya! well, when i finally returned to my bfs pad later that night, i told him i had to finish watching americas best dance crew (lets call it abdc bc that name is way too long!). in my own amazement, even my man didnt shut this off or shudder in fear and/or disgust like he usually does with my shows. ah! progress or just plain awesomeness?

anyway, i usually fast forward through the judges comments bc ive seen many a dancing shows in my day (so you think you can dance, dancing with the stars) and the judges either try to show off their dance knowledge or try to be super nice and shield the contestants from any embarassment. but this show is on mtv and like many game shows on mtv (like say what karaoke: whatever happened to that show?) the judges are just fluffy filler in between acts. well, i think the judges are a part of the reason why this show is so good and they actually kinda resemble another judging trio who i think set the bar for all other judges... you guessed it, american idol! let the comparisions begin!
  • the one who repeatedly uses the same ghetto term
    american idol - randy jackson fave ghetto term - you my dawg!
    abdc - shane sparks fave ghetto term - you murdered it!
    who are they and what do they do - on idol randy is the american music producer who is a mix of nasty truth telling simon and ditzy/drunk paula. on dance crew, randy is the exec producer. shane sparks has been a judge on so you think you can dance and is a renouned choreographer. so you would think he would fill the simon role on dance crew but nah, hes more like randy. he compliments the dance groups and gives them criticism in the most constructive way. shane is my fave judge on abdc.
  • the lil ladies
    american idol - paula abdul
    abdc - lil mama
    who are they and what do they do - on idol, paula is he sole female sitting between randy and simon. she plays the nice judge role bc she really cant be mean to any of the contestants. maybe its her big heart or (probably) her red cup of whoknowswhatkindadrugsareinthatthing. paula is the slurry comic relief. lil mama is also a nice mama but she takes her role a bit more seriously than paula does. oh yeah, if you dont know who lil mama is shes a rapper of some sort. i dont really know her music but i do dig her remix of avrils boyfriend (lil mama and avril lavigne REMIX!). unlike paula, lil mama does give some constructive crticism but always pairs it up with compliments.
  • the meanies
    american idol - simon cowell (duh!)
    abdc - jc chasez
    who are they and what they do - simon is the only judge who matters on idol. plus, does anyone really know what he did before idol? anyway, simon tells it like it is and hes even more fun to listen to bc he has a british accent. you can tell me to fuck off in a british accent and id still prolly swoon and then pounce you. damn accents! jc chasez is a bitter bitter man. im sure the rest of nsync is bitter too since mr timberlake became larger than the group itself but damn! jc is b.i.t.t.e.r. bitter! even if a group kills it (like my man shane would say) jc always finds something to criticize. even when hes complimenting a group, its in such a lackluster tone. dude. your heyday has gone. deal with it and get over it.
yeah the judges are one of the reasons why i watch this show but obv the main reason is bc of the dance groups. there are some that are just damn ridiculous (not in a good way) like break sk8 and fysh n chicks. break sk8 is a bunch of guys from indiana who dance with roller skates. not blades, skates. they kick it old school. whatever. they piss me off bc this is a dance contest not a roller rink. go try out for roll bounce 2 and get off the abdc stage! fysh n chicks is a bunch of not so skinny girls. their thing is theyre not sell outs for wearing slutty clothes so they dance in baggy ones to cover their fat bods and bad dancing. whatever, i hope one of those two gets kicked off this week.

there are two groups that im rooting for. first up is jabbawockeez. i know. just from their name i wanted to barf but this is the group that got me hooked! i didnt like them at first bc of their name and their masks. from the get go i thought theyd be a cheesy mask wearing group but after hearing why they wear masks (so people can focus on their dancing as a whole instead of individuals) and seeing them move... damn! heres a vid of the perf that got me mesmerized. its to apologize, the slow song where timbaland sounds like wookie. anyway, sit back, press play and just be freakin amazed like i was:

the second group is kaba modern. off the bat i didnt have high hopes for them bc they were a bunch of asians from the oc. i know, self race hate much? this group proves that asians got rhythm and slick ass moves. i really believe the contest will end with deciding between these two groups. if it doesnt then itll be a travesty. kaba modern have been improving with each week. this vid clip is from the latest ep which had each group dance out a movie scene. kaba did a 2008 weird science type of thing. the nerdy guys created their hot cyber girls. this dance is to one of my current faves sensual seduction. watch and love people:

if i turned you onto this show, you can thank me later. if i didnt, im telling you, youre missing out! and if mtv's pr dept would like to hire me for some freelance work, im available :)
