You might know the group Poreotics from America's Best Dance Crew Season 5, where they emerged as winners. Here are a few things we got to know about them, the group opening for Justin Bieber's concert here in Manila tonight!
- Represent! Composed of Asian guys from Westminster, California, 3 of the Poreotics Law, Jet Li, and Chad are actually Pinoy. Dumbo, Can, and Charles are Vietnamese.
- Passion. Their passion for dancing has taken them away from school, with training and performances requiring them to dance 24/7. Although they're quick to tell their fans, "Stay in school!"
- Guys on TV. They've appeared in 2 videos: Justin Bieber's "Somebody To Love" and Bruno Mars's "The Lazy Song." They'd also want to be in a video of Taylor Swift.
- Shady. Chad shares that sunglasses are big thing in hiphop, something they took upon themselves to make it their trademark. And because they're always doing flips and stunts during their performances, they glue the sides of the glasses to keep them from falling off.
- Dominating. Asked why they think Asians are dominating America's Best Dance Crew, Jet Li says maybe it has something to do with the way they were raised. "Our parents always want us to be good at Math, be good at English, always study. We put that discipline into dance."
Catch the Poreotics tonight at Justin Bieber's concert at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds at 8pm.
