Lil-Mama-ABDC-vid.jpgIt’s been a crazy season on “America’s Best Dance Crew,” and soon the Season 6 winner will be crowned. Thursday’s episode pits the final three crews — ICONic Boyz, I aM mE and Phunk Phenomenon — against each other in one last battle before the finals. They’ll each take on mastermixes to some of Kanye West‘s biggest hits.

]]>Zap2it caught up with the crews as well as judges Lil Mama and D-Trix backstage before hitting the stage for the second to last taping of the season. While none of the crews expected to make it this far in the competition, we wanted to hear what Mama and D-Trix thought of the last men (and women) standing. “I think from the beginning of the season, I really didn’t know who was gonna be in the top three,” D-Trix says. “And I think every week, whoever was in the bottom was a huge surprise. So, I would have to say, yeah, it is a surprise to see the top three crews. “But they all deserve — definitely — all three of those crews definitely deserve to be in the top 3,” he adds. “Not surprised,” Mama adds. “There are one or two crews that I could’ve saw in the finals that I thought were really, really good. But I cannot say that I would replace them them with another crew.” Fellow judge JC Chasez hasn’t weighed in, but the other two agree that ReQuest dance crew is one that they would have liked to see stick around. “ReQuest dance crew was one of the greatest crews from this season,” Mama gushes. Adding, “ICONic Boyz are still my favorite, let’s not forget that.” “I really would have liked to see what ReQuest would have done,” D-Trix weighs in. “It was such a hard week for them just because Street Kingdom — they were fighting really hard that week. Honestly I really wish I could see a lot of the crews come back.” Watch the backstage video below. Mama compares the ICONic Boyz to Season 1 winners, the Jabbawockeez and D-Trix offers advice to the fallen crews. Plus, you are definitely going to want to check out Mama’s outfit in full… she calls it “futuristic diva” and we have to agree.
