The Grammy Award process is a mystery to those outside the voting level of the organization however, ith the 58th Grammy’s looming before us, the Recording Academy wanted to give the general public a bit of insight on the process…check the video!
Television personality and hip-hop radio legend Sway Calloway will be the evening’s host as the continent’s top B-Boys throw down in hopes of being crowned the Red Bull BC One North America champion.
The North America Final is one of six global qualifiers that will determine who earns their ticket to Rome for the World Final on Nov. 14. Other global qualifiers will take place in Georgia (Eastern Europe), Egypt, Madrid, Seoul, and Peru.
Thousands of spectators will celebrate hip-hop culture and witness B-Boy battles unlike any other. The 16 competitors have secured their spots by winning qualifying cyphers or by invitation based on past performance. B-Boys will defy physics in a series of flips, elbow spins, head slides, dime freezes and everything in between to win over the judges and claim the coveted Red Bull BC One North America title.
The 16 Red Bull BC One North America Final competitors include: JoshSkittle (Honolulu, Hawaii), Kid Cruz (Denver, Colo.), Fléau (Montréal, Canada), DQ (Bladensburg, Md.), Zeku (Miami, Fla.), Illz (Toronto, Canada), Starvin’ Sa-Ewl (Rialto, Calif.), Ben (Las Vegas, Nev.), ICEY IVES (Anchorage, Alaska), Moy (Houston, Texas), Mighty Wealthy (Brooklyn Park, Minn.), Frankie (Queens, N.Y.), Napalm (Philadelphia, Pa.), Rion (San Diego, Calif.), Insight (Orlando, Fla.) and Victor (Orlando, Fla.).
Victor, Orlando’s hometown hero and one of three Florida B-Boys competing on their home turf, is returning to defend his win at last year’s North American Final in Las Vegas. Victor is one of the most accomplished B-Boys competing and a real threat to repeat his victory. The son of Mexican immigrants, Victor’s dad started breaking in the 1980s during breakdancing’s golden age, and he got Victor into the art form early, beginning to break at only 11 years old. It’s been a saving grace and consistent source of positivity in his life. “To win the Red Bull BC One North America Final again would mean a lot to me,” Victor explains. “I feel my chances are high to win in Orlando, but you never know what can happen! I’m just keeping positive.”

Competing for the last time during the regular season, the battle for first place in the Western Conference promised to be intense. With the previous matches between the Los Angeles Temptation and the Seattle Mist resulting in road wins, home field advantage was not an assurance of a victory for the Mist.
With legendary quarterback Ashley Salerno still nursing her injuries, Michelle Angel was thrust into the role of starter once again. Making her second career start, she could not benefit from the presence of center Laura Barba, who was absent. Struggling on the Temptation’s first possession, the Mist took over within the first three minutes of the game.
Employing a diverse running game with the likes of Danika Brace, Mele Gilmore and Stevi Schnoor, it did not take long for the tensions to rise between these two heated rivals. Elements such as trash talking and shoving quickly became the…
