Last night's installment of “Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew” was a shock to many as it was to the Judges. The show seemed like it was the actual finale but it was all a dream when the alleged best dance crews of Supreme Soul and Super Cr3w were actually the bottom two crews for the week.
Lil Mama voiced her displeasure of who landed in the bottom two. The all Asian group of the Boogie Bots was the crew that Mama blurted out should of been there. This was a first for all the judges to see that America had voted wrong. Watching their faces without emotion as they had to choose between Super Cr3w and Supreme Soul. Unfortunately, the soul searching for Supreme Soul ended last night.
I was a bit surprised to see how hard they took the elimination especially since Supreme Soul has been in countless competitions winning and losing. I had interviewed them for the third episode of taping and they mentioned that this is another competition for them and if they were eliminated, they would move on. However, after the show, they were affected more than could imagine. Seeing all this mean break down and cry, made one realize that this show may have meant more than they realized. IT definitely was heart breaking that they weren't up to interviews. Only myspace.com and Los Angeles Times were able to get a few words in. But, after that, it was hard for them to talk.
More power to Supreme Soul as they find their dance soul after the show.
On a lighter note, Asian cutie Ailynn Isidro of SoReal Cru had a reunion of sorts as her parents flew in from Houston to watch her perform. According to sources, it's been a long while since Ailynn had seen her parents for the longest time. It meant so much to her to see her parents come out to watch her performance as they have never seen her dance events before.
As the dance crews were being hurried back to their hotel, I was able to get a quick few minutes of interview with Ailynn's parents. To sum up what her mother talked about was that Ailynn is at the age to make her own decisions and that they will stick by her on what she wants to do. Her mother says that they are just like any other parents that want the best for their children. Mrs. Isidro talked about finishing up her education and finding a career and keep a good Christian moral value. She didn't want to be misquoted as not supporting her daughter at all.
I personally summed it up as her parents supporting her in what she decides to do even if they don't really care for it. That is their daughter no matter what.
