The entertaining and unexpected MTV Movie Awards action isn’t just contained to the main event — we have a knack for packing the pre-show with plenty of reasons to tune in early.
This year is no different, as the season-six finale of “Randy Jackson Presents America’s Best Dance Crew” airs Sunday, June 5, at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT before the 2011 MTV Movie Awards kick off at 9 p.m. ET/PT. During the 90-minute special episode, “ABDC Finale at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards Red Carpet,” a winning dance crew will be crowned alongside live action from the Movie Awards red carpet.
Fans will be brought live to the carpet to see Emma Stone and Tom Felton introduce two never-before-seen clips from “The Help” and “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” catch an interview with the cast of MTV’s new series “Teen Wolf” and watch a special Movie Awards-themed “After Hours,” featuring MTV News’ Josh Horowitz’s rocky journey to the red carpet with special appearances by Eva Mendes, Keanu Reeves, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Danny McBride, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy and more.
“ABDC” comes to a close as two remaining crews, IaMmE and ICONic Boyz, battle it out to showcase their edgy and innovative moves for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be named America’s best dance crew and receive a $100,000 cash prize. The season finale will also feature performances from all past champion crews: JabbaWockeeZ, Super Cr3w, Quest Crew, We Are Heroes and Poreotix.
As a bonus, on Thursday, June 2, at 10 p.m. ET/PT, IaMmE and ICONic Boyz will compete in the “Ultimate Battle.” The crews will have a final chance to display their phenomenal talent without risking elimination before Sunday’s finale. Swizz Beatz will create original tracks, giving the crews one last chance to win over America’s votes.
