'America's Best Dance' Crew canceled
MTV pulls the plug on Randy Jackson's competition series after seven seasons
MTV's "America's Best Dance Crew" has been canceled after seven seasons. The dance competition, produced by "American Idol" judge Randy Jackson, will not return for an eighth season, after having been on the cable network since 2008.
MTV execs have expressed their gratitude to the show in a statement that reads: "We are grateful to Randy Jackson and Warner Horizon for having brought our audience seven amazing seasons of dance with ABDC, and look forward to more successful and dynamic entertaining collaborations in the future." Throughout the seasons, the best dance groups in the country were judged by N'Sync's JC Chasez, rapper Lil Mama, and "So You Think You Can Dance" alum Dominic "D-Trix" Sandoval.
Mario Lopez hosted the show, but has recently taken on co-hosting duties on "The X Factor." Arguably the most popular group to come out of the show were Season 1 champions, the Jabbawockeez, who went on to tour the world and have a residency at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nev.
