Hip-Pop Sensation Lil Mama Signs On As The Third Judge

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 23 -- MTV gets energized for the Live Audition of "Randy Jackson Presents: America's Best Dance Crew" where the top 12 dance crews from around the country will battle it out on Saturday, January 26 at 2:00 p.m. LIVE ET/tape delayed PT. Hosted by Mario Lopez ("Dancing with the Stars"), the crews -- representing Atlanta, Chicago, New York and Los Angeles -- will need to bring their best moves to win over the judges, JC Chasez (N*Sync) and choreographer Shane Sparks ("You Got Served"), for one of the eight coveted spots on the weekly competitive group dance series. Hip-pop sensation Lil Mama has signed on to be the third judge to offer her advice and votes to the competitors.

"Randy Jackson Presents: America's Best Dance Crew" promises to be one of the most visual and inspiring performance competition shows to ever hit television. It is the first dance competition series for dance crews rather than individual dancers.

The weekly series kicks off Thursday, February 7 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

"Randy Jackson Presents: America's Best Dance Crew" is executive produced by "American Idol" judge Randy Jackson, Rob Lee (Bayonne Entertainment), Hip Hop International's Howard Schwartz and Karen Schwartz (the creators of the USA & World Hip Hop Dance Championships), Harriet Sternberg (Dream Merchant 21) and Joel Gallen (Tenth Planet Productions). David Auerbach and Brooke Karzen are the executives overseeing the project for Warner Horizon Television ("The Bachelor;" "The Search For The Next Pussycat Doll").
