Reviews from the Boston papers.

Stepping up from street to stageMore from the Globe
The second-season finale of MTV's hit series "Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew" drew more than 39 million fan votes, so it's no surprise the producers would want to take the show on the road. Thursday night's live show at the Wang Theatre was everything fans could want: fast-paced, high energy, hugely entertaining, and LOUD.
In fact, the music was the show's only downside, homogenized into a relentless, chest-thumping beat.

Jackson’s best dancers thrill Boston audienceMore from the Herald
No one seemed to mind that “American Idol” judge [Randy] Jackson wasn’t at the show himself. Still, the 100-minute live performance was worthy of a small frenzy. It took the best elements of the MTV show - namely, dancing - and trashed the annoying ones, such as lengthy judge commentary, drawn-out back stories and over-long elimination rounds.
