Yeahh!! Good opening number – started and ended strong. Best ones were probably actually Kinjaz and WAH for the individual sections, but pretty good showing from all the crews. Excited! (unfortunately i already know who won thanks to the page posts again sigh >.< but oh well) (edit: holy crack just realized after watching this again… did mike song just do all the animal hand signs from naruto super quick in that middle solo section?! THAT’S CRAZY/AWESOME!)
quest crew – OMG so excited aris is actually going to perform on stage today!!! after going to el cerritos and taking classes with them, i always wondered why aris didn’t make it for the first time quest crew came on stage in season 3, and then again this year because he is quite good and a founding member. but so glad he got to join this time. quest crew – 9 people strong! 😀 OMGOSH!!! that was their best set this entire season i think. omg, i have been WAITING ALL SEASON for them to do something awesome like this! finally, the boys are back (when it doesn’t matter anymore haha -.-||). from the semi-cartwheels around the group to the flip ryanimay did from his chest off of aris’s feet, to the smooth section in the middle on the bleachers… love that whole threading season between all the members, and the holds and the just.. FUN they had, even though some of the tricks they’ve used before. you can tell that they were relieved and didn’t have the pressure of competition anymore and just wanted to represent on stage and enjoy themselves.
super cr3w – WHOAAA, cool lighting trick at the beginning (sadly, the first thing that reminded me of was an ultrasound LOL). oh the multiple flipping over/around people in the middle section was kind cool. i don’t know though… for some reason even though i know all the members of super cr3w are super strong physically and really clean/good at tricks… i never feel really inspired by their performances. like i don’t feel the intense energy and stuff that i do with, say quest crew, and choreography isn’t that intricate, and meh. i don’t know why but i’m never that impressed by them.
huh. just realized. i wonder if they kept all 3 because each one had a champion amongst the judges? t-pain for quest crew, frankie for super cr3w, and kinjaz for teyana? reflecting back on all their comments… i kind of wonder if that’s what’s going on. o.0
kinjaz – oh man. throughout this season, i’ve developed a renewed respect for kinjaz. love the asian theme with the outfits, sakura trees, and lanterns, and the tight beginning. i wonder if this is the first time they’ve performed as kinjaz without their masks. but yeah that was a great emotional performance. love it. man, as much as i love quest, taking this season as a whole… kinjaz really should have taken the crown.
nice group set with the other 3 crews. have to say i’m a little disappointed again at WAH… why was their set all about like trying to be sexy and stuff… isn’t their whole premise girl power and being strong in popping and other things? -.-|| i almost wanted to say even the girls on i.am.me were stronger than any of the girls in WAH, until that last section, where i saw some of the girls from WAH going at it hard, and i’m like ok SEE they can DANCE! why did they give that up in their section (and throughout the show?? >.<) but yeah sigh. i.am.me was the best of that set – great job with the pole and the flip off the person’s back.
ok yeah, i was like it better be between kinjaz and quest crew, cuz honestly super cr3w should have been gone since the super kinjaz vs i am quest week but yeah, good job super cr3w – strong boys, all of them. uhh… that ending of that last speech though lol… not sure if that was a bit of bitterness or not, but yeah that was an odd speech.
omg jason dundas, stop dragging it outttt holy crack lol. and wow, only 7% difference. that’s super close considering the total was 95 million votes. omg aww that ending was so touching! ryan burst into tears, and hok and d-trix as well. that must have meant a lot to them, especially after being away from the dance (competition) scene for so long. i still have a sad spot for kinjaz as i think they did an amazing job this season, but i’m glad to know that the boys i loved from back in the day are still humble at heart and still appreciate stuff like this on such a deep level, despite my worries that they were starting to lose that sense. keep it up quest, and i hope you continue to dance after this.
also, can i say asian pride today? every single person on stage up there for the top 2 crews i think was at least part, if not full, asian. 😄 yayuh, represent!
man though, jason, you are like the worst emcee >.< mario was so much better. you could tell he just wanted to do his job which was to hand over the trophy and declare the winner – he didn’t care at all that the crew was being emotional and needed some time, and even when he asked for a statement, he didn’t even let hok talk and just snatched away the mic after like a second. what the heck man?! give the man time to compose himself and give a statement at least! geez. so not in tune to emotional stuff all throughout this season. missed mario a lot as a host >.< and you could see it at the end too with the hugging – he was kinda just awkwardly there and didn’t connect with the dancers at all. bah. ugh. (i’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt, and maybe the trophy was really heavy and he needed to hand it to someone before he dropped it, but still should have given them time to give a statement. rawr.)
anyway, congrats quest! i hope this has helped you guys find your way again.
edit: aww haha i miss seeing interviews and the guys just being their dorky selves like this. glad i saw this ^.^ (also was that mcdonald’s in the 2nd half?? LOVE MCDONALD’S HAHA!)
edit2: Oh, and it turns out, Quest Crew has confirmed that they didn’t in fact perform for the VMA’s, they were just able to attend as the prize. >.< That’s kind of lame. I was looking for their performance all last night, and that was the only reason I saw all that stuff about Miley and Nicki, Taylor and Kanye, and Justin Bieber and all this stuff I didn’t need to -.-|| Bah. At least I wasn’t the only one confused about that apparently. You’d think that with a title like “Road to the VMA’s”, it meant they’d perform there, but guess that’s not the case.
