Hype 5-0 to compete tonight on MTV show
Hype 5-0, the first hip-hop crew selected to represent Hawaii in MTV’s “Randy Jackson Presents: America’s Best Dance Crew” will compete tonight in the first round show’s season-five nationals.
Last week, the seven-member Oahu crew competed against four other crews representing the west in a regional competition. Hype 5-0 was among the top three selected by judges to advance to the national competition.
Tonight’s show, which will air at 10 p.m. Hawaii time, features three crews from west, east and south regions, respectively. At the end of the show, one crew will be eliminated from the competition.
Fans will be encouraged to vote for their favorite crew. During tonight’s show, hosts will provide phone numbers and other information about voting, which will be under way for a short period.
Hype 5-0 includes: Josh “Hazmat” Ulep, 22, of Wailua; Brittnie Aguilar, 18, of Mililani; Casey Kalahiki, 23, of Honolulu; Marc “Dueynutz” Duey, 21, of Kapolei; Jonathan “Ramones” Ramones, 18, of Ewa; William “Nessy” Soares III, 19, of Honolulu; and Allen-Charles “Brain” Pascual, 26, of Ewa.
