Big Brother 16 contestant Frankie Grande has signed on as a judge for the new season of America’s Best Dance Crew on MTV. The series, produced by former American Idol judge Randy Jackson, will return on July 29 after a two year break.
America’s Best Dance Crew originally ran for seven seasons over four years from 2008 to 2012. The show pits dance crews against each other in a competition show for a $100,000 prize.
The new season of series will be a special edition featuring ‘all-stars’ crews battling it out for the big money and a Video Music Awards theme. We wonder if we’ll see the show’s arguably most famous act, Jabbawockeez, back this season after their successful world tour and Vegas headliner gig.
Behind the America’s Best Dance Crew judges’ table this season will be rapper and record producer T-Pain, singer and actress Teyana Taylor, and Big Brother star and YouTube personality Frankie Grande.
If you are wondering why on earth Frankie Grande would qualify as a judge for a dance competition, we must note that he is actually a Broadway experienced dancer with a triple-majored degree in theatre, dance, and (oddly) biology.
America’s Best Dance Crew All Stars: Road to the VMAs will premiere on MTV on July 29, 2015.
