The Monkees just won a huge breakdancing tournament in Korea and will be celebrating at the See Sound Lounge in Seattle tonight at 9 o’ clock. We’ve got more information and a brand new video of the tournament below. They straight killed it.
U.S. B-boy crew Massive Monkees Crew won the 2012 R-16 World B-boy Masters Championship, beating out two-time champions JinJo Crew of Korea.
More than 200 B-boys from 16 countries participated in the tournament held from July 7-8 at Olympic Hall in Bangi-dong, southern Seoul.
For the battle competition, five renowned B-boy judges from different parts of the world judged the teams on foundation, dynamics, execution, battle and originality. Only eight teams ― Korea, Japan, Belgium, Kazakhstan, U.S.A., China, Taiwan and Finland ― made it to the final rounds from the regional eliminations.
TMZ reports that Davy Jones, singer of The Monkees, has died at the age of 66. A representative for Jones said that he died Wednesday morning after suffering a heart attack. The singer is survived by his wife Jessica and four daughters from previous marriages.
