Season six of "America's Best Dance Crew" is the "Season of the Superstars" and, for the first time ever, each episode is themed to a popular celebrity artist. Ten new dance crews are taking the stage this season 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.
