This week, the remaining 5 crews are performing to Ke$ha hits. Last week's episode was so strong with IaMmE Crew and Street Kingdom. We'll see which crews shine through this week.
The group performance to "We R Who We R" was even better than last week's! Again, each crew got a chance to take center stage, and I think Instant Noodles and 787 Crew were the standouts for me. Iconic Boys were instantly recognizable because of their size and youth. It'll be interesting to see if a crew so young can stand equal with the big boys (or girls).
Ke$ha Song: Tik Tok
Background: Footworking is a Chicago style that has Mike N Ikes, Dribbles, and Erk N Jerks. You basically move your feet to every beat of the song. Dancing to Ke$ha, they have to worry about making sure they feet can keep up to the beat.
Routine: The backflips at centerstage were great since he just went right into the footwork and was able to stay in time with the others. I loved the last move where the girl, "Lil Bit" ended as the only one standing. She definitely works hard to stay in time, keep up with the quickness of the guys, but also stand out since she is the only girl. JC pointed out a dangerous "ankle break" move that I would not have noticed without that slow-mo. D-Trix thinks this footwork is the future of hip hop and is glad they're showing it off to America. He's already a fan and I think I am too.
Last week on The Vampire Diaries, sooo much double-crossing happened and it ended with Isabelle dead, Alaric posessed by Klaus, and Bonnie with all the dead witches' power.
Klaus doesn't want Elijah alive any more than any of the others. Katherine's being held captive and he's using her to get information on what the Salvatores have been up to and to make sure he'll be a passable Alaric.
"I've searched for you for the past 500 years. Your death is going to last at least half that long."
After that chilling line, he compelled Katherine to stab herself repeated until he returned. So begins her 250+ years of pain.
Kids today say the darnest things! When I was young, I wanted to be a princess or an astronaut or the President, but no matter what it was I always wanted to be the good guy. This little girl has some darker intentions it seems. Check out the video from Disneyland's Jedi Academy show after the break.
