Los Angeles, CA (July 9, 2009) – Emmy-nominated choreographer Shane Sparks returns to judge MTV’s hit dance TV series “RANDY JACKSON PRESENTS AMERICA’S BEST DANCE CREW,” which is kicking off its fourth season with a special 90-minute season premiere Sunday, August 9 (9:00-10:30 PM ET/PT). To tide fans over until then, Randy Jackson will count down the ten best performances from seasons past on August 2 at 9p.m. ET/PT. Season four is bound to be the most challenging yet, pushing the nine crews to step outside of their comfort zones and integrate their urban moves with some of the world’s most popular dance styles. After holding strong as cable’s leading Thursday night program for three seasons, “RANDY JACKSON PRESENTS AMERICA’S BEST DANCE CREW” moves to Sunday nights.

Of returning to judge for the fourth season, Sparks shares, “We’re back and it's gonna be even bigger than last season. To all the biters stay home, I'm gonna be tougher and more critical. No time for wackness!”

In addition to “RANDY JACKSON PRESENTS AMERICA’S BEST DANCE CREW,” Sparks continues to choreograph on FOX’s hot summer dance series, “So You Think You Can Dance” created by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe and currently on its fifth season. Additionally, this fall, Shane will be choreographing the Broadway musical “DREAMGIRLS” bringing his flavor to the stage and to theatergoers around the world.

“RANDY JACKSON PRESENTS AMERICA’S BEST DANCE CREW” is executive produced by “American Idol” judge Randy Jackson, Joel Gallen (Tenth Planet Productions), Hip Hop International’s Howard and Karen Schwartz, Rob Lee (Bayonne Entertainment), and Harriet Sternberg and Abe Hoch (both of Dream Merchant 21 Entertainment).
