The finale for season 2 of America’s Best Dance Crew aired last night. Or at least, it should have been. The judges all agreed that Supreme Soul and Super Cr3w were the two groups they expected to see in the finale, so it was quite the shock that they were the two bottom crews, leading to Supreme Soul’s elimination.

BuddyTV spoke to Bionic, one of the members of Supreme Soul, about the elimination and the time on the show. He talked about how the crew felt during the final show, his reaction to the belief that Supreme Soul was too cocky, and how the crew choreographed its routines. Continue reading to listen to the interview or to read the highlights.

-While the judges expressed shock at the bottom two on last night’s America’s Best Dance Crew, the members of Supreme Soul were humble, well aware of the fact that anything could happen. They’d been in the bottom before and after seeing A.S.I.I.D. go home, they had no delusions about being safe.  Similarly, Bionic also knew that going head-to-head with Super Cr3w would be difficult since they are the best of the other crews.

-Though Supreme Soul was perceived as being cocky early on, Bionic chalks that up to a desire to compete and win.  They weren’t being cocky to intimidate, they simply wanted to come out and do their best and try as hard as they could to win, and that hunger was confused with cockiness.

-The seven members of Supreme Soul are accustomed to competing as solos or pairs, so the large group made planning the choreography a bit difficult. The other challenging part was that all the members have choreography ideas, while other crews might only have one or two dancers who help to choreograph the routines.

-Bionic’s favorite routine was “Touch” by Omarion in the second week, because it highlighted the fact that Supreme Soul could slow it down and be a smooth crew.

-Though the judges and other crews were more focused on tricks, Bionic and Supreme Soul wanted to highlight their technical dancing ability, though they would occasionally show off the ability to tell a story as well, such as in their hockey and elevator routines.

-Bionic isn’t sure whether the three West Coast crews will perform together during the finale, but he would gladly accept the opportunity to try to do something creative with Fanny Pak and Super Cr3w. While most reality show contestants might be disappointed or depressed after elimination, Bionic seemed upbeat, simply happy to have had the opportunity to do what he loves for millions of viewers.

-Also, he isn’t sure whether Supreme Soul will be invited to join the America’s Best Dance Crew tour, but he and the other members of the crew would absolutely love the chance to dance for fans across the country.
