America's Best Dance Crew

Live Auditions Special

*Aired on June 07, 2008

Supreme Soul, affiliates of Soul Sector crew, was introduced by MTV and portrayed by MTV producers as the "cocky" crew to create controversy on the show by fabricating a story which took a battle out of context to create Supreme Soul as the "cocky crew" that beat the Season 1 victors, the JabbaWockeeZ. The battle which was referred to was between Jabbawockeez and Supreme Soul's affiliate units, the SoCal Allstars and Soul Sector, respectively. Although different Soul Sector members have battled different members of SoCal Allstars and Jabbawockeez in the past, when inquired about the result of the battle by Shane Sparks, a judge on ABDC, Bionic, a Supreme Soul/Soul Sector member and also a former co-member with Rainen, from JabbaWockeeZ in another crew, wanted to fairly say that both crews battled well, but they were further pushed by Shane Sparks for a straight answer by the judges when Pharcyde, also a member of Supreme Soul/Soul Sector, sarcastically remarked that they won in order to protect the crew's reputation since it was an audition show and Shane was attempting to make them look bad. Different Soul Sector members were actually present and Bionic was the only one that was present at that battle from Supreme Soul; only two members of the JabbaWockeeZ who danced on ABDC (Kevin Brewer and Phil Tayag) were also involved along with Ronnie, a Super Cr3w member from ABDC season 2.
