MTV viewers spoke again, voting the popular young bucks of Iconic Boyz safely into the ABDC Championship at the top of Week 8’s episode. That left the remaining two crews, Phunk Phenomenon and IaMMe, to battle it out for the other spot in the Final 2.
Knowing that it might be their last performance, both groups pulled out all the stops with mind-blowing, near-perfect routines. Phunk offered a particularly powerful performance, which D-Trix called “relentless,” and Lil Mama said they “made a big impact.” JC Chasez marveled that the crew was “on Nitro” and that the routine “had everything.” Meanwhile, IaMMe was valiant in their first bottom-two battle, with a unique performance that left the judges almost speechless.
In the end, the Phunk Phenomenon fam was sent home, but the crew was nothing but joyous as they celebrated making it so far in the competition and raising awareness for their charity, Hip Hop For Hope. ABDC Insider host Layla Kayleigh had an inspiring conversation with them backstage as they said their final farewells. Check it out:
