America’s Best Dance Crew is a reality competition TV series where the participants pass through multiple dance challenges in every new episode in order to get a prize of $100,000 and the ABDC trophy. The team gets a challenge every week. The challenges picked out for each of the teams are different, however, the concept is generally the same for every step of the show. To begin every new episode, the presenter, Mario Lopez gives hints about teams that can possibly be eliminated. Then the worst team continues performing their routines and the panel of judges decides whether a team should pass to the next step of the competition or not.
Every team has a unique banner appearing when the participants are interviewed and when they perform. When one of the teams gets eliminated the personalized banner drops from the stand.
