LOS ANGELES, Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The world's most prestigious breaking championship heads to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on December 8, 2012 and fans worldwide can catch all the action streaming live at 2pm PST/5pm EST on Redbullbcone.com. To make it to the Red Bull BC One World Finals is an honor reserved for only the greatest B-Boys in the world. Each year the competition gets tougher and tougher, resulting in the most physically challenging power moves, jaw dropping freezes and technical footwork with creative and diverse combinations. This annual series features 16 B-Boys competing for the coveted title that honors the extraordinary skills of individual breakers.
Among the 16 finalists, four will represent the U.S.A. – including this year's North American Regional Champion DomKey, Vicious Victor, Kid David and 2011 World Champion Roxrite, who will return to defend his title. If Roxrite secures the crown, he will be the first B-Boy in history to win the Red Bull BC One World Finals two years in a row. But he's up against, among others, this year's youngest dancer, 15-year-old wunderkind Issei from Japan, who recently won this year's R16 in Korea. This year it's anyone's game, with a highly competitive roster rounded out by Arex (Colombia), Sunni (UK), Junior (France), ExacT (Russia), Differ (South Korea), and Hill (Mexico).
Stakes are at an all time high, as the competition will eliminate one dancer each round until the best dancer is left standing to claim the title. Judges score the B-Boys on their battle strategy, power moves, dance foundation, fresh routine, and overall style. This year the panel of judges, include: Red Bull BC One All-Star Neguin (Brazil), Red Bull BC One All-Star Taisuke (Japan), Moy (USA), Niek (Holland), and Storm (Germany).
DJ Skeme Richards will lay down the battle music and Brazilian rapper Dughettu will MC the night. B-Boy legends Kwikstep and CROS1 will provide their special blend of color commentary for thousands of worldwide fans watching the live stream at Redbullbcone.com.
