For a Sneak Peak of the Opening Dance Number:

Santa Monica, CA ( April 6, 2011) - MTV's hit reality dance competition series "Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew" (ABDC), honors Lil Wayne as the "Superstar of the Week," when season six premieres Thursday, April 7, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. In the opening episode, the first five crews chosen to compete this season will perform routines inspired by the music and fashion of the Grammy Award winning Lil Wayne, considered one of today's hottest and most original artists in rap. The dance crews will dance to some of Lil Wayne's biggest hits, including "Right Above It featuring Drake," "A Milli," "Knockout featuring Nikki Minaji," "Fireman," "I Am Not a Human Being" and more. And for the first time ever, the premiere episode will open with a hard-hitting group performance featuring our first five crews igniting the stage and jump-starting this brand-new season.

Season six of "America's Best Dance Crew" will be the "Season of the Superstars" and, for the first time ever, each episode will be themed to a popular celebrity artist. Ten new dance crews will have to create dances to master mixes of the artist of the week, incorporating all aspects of the artist's style � from wardrobe, inspiration and emotion to groundbreaking choreography and skills. Special guest appearances include Ke$ha, Black Eyed Peas, Katy Perry and Justin Bieber. Themed episodes will be inspired by the hottest names in music including Rihanna, Lil Wayne and more!

"America's Best Dance Crew" is hosted by Mario Lopez and shot on location in Los Angeles as dance crews perform their hottest moves for dance supremacy and a $100,000 cash prize. Every performance-themed episode gives insight into the crews' emotion, spirit and inspiration as they step up to the challenge and show off their groundbreaking choreography and skills. Viewers from around the country choose their favorite crews via text messaging, phone and online voting. The two crews with the least number of votes will be up for elimination with judges making the final call on which crew will be sent home. One crew will be eliminated each week, ultimately revealing the nation's best dance crew.
