After the news of AMERICA’S BEST DANCE CREW and SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE personality Shane Sparks’ alleged child molestation charges hit the web, rumors have circulated about who will be the third judge on season 5 of ABDC. There was even a twitter campaign waged by SYTYCD’s Lil C, but ultimately, the seat went to Grammy-nominated singer, actor, and dancer Omarion (formerly of B2K and “You Got Served”).
“Omarion is one of the most accomplished, multi-talented young stars of his generation. His music and music videos have influenced hip-hop dance going back to his B2k days and in more recent years as a platinum-selling solo artist,” said Liz Gateley, Senior Vice President of Series Development for MTV. “He is an accomplished dancer, artist and actor who knows what makes a good dance crew performance. We are very excited for him to join Lil Mama and JC Chasez as our third judge.”
What do you think about the new addition? He seems to know what he’s talking about, as a dancer, so I’ll hold my judgment until I see the first new episode of the season! Randy Jackson promises that this season will be “blazing hot,” so I’m excited!
