Robot-inspired dance crew Poreotix were crowned the season five winner of America’s Best Dance Crew on Thursday night. Poreotix, who hail from Westminster, California, topped Canadian team Blueprint Cru to win the title of America’s Best Dance Crew and the MTV dance competition’s $100,000 grand prize.
American Idol judge Randy Jackson, who is the show’s executive producer, presented Poreotix with the season five trophy at the end of the live finale. “You dominated the competition this year with your crazy robotic style and your brilliant sense of humor,” Randy said. “I have the honor of naming you America’s Best Dance Crew.”
Poreotix thanked their fans, who can see them perform next week on MTV in an all-star ABDC reunion for charity featuring dance crew winners from previous seasons.
Everyone started jerkin’ last year. When the kids returned from summer vacation, it was like they’d contracted some rare virus. A tsetse-fly bite in reverse, but rather than sleeping sickness, teenagers from Long Beach to Lancaster started getting geeked up … a dancing dominoes of flailing limbs, skinny jeans and fluorescent accessorizing. Jerkin’ at talent shows and on top of lunchroom tabletops. Jerkin’ in parking lots and bus stops, underground teen clubs, every single function (party), and, of course, on YouTube. Much of Los Angeles’ 18-and-under population was jerkin’ — presumably because they were the only ones young enough not to snicker at the term’s historically self-flagellating connotation.
