By now everyone knows that underdogs Super Cr3w beat out frontrunners SoReal Cru for the title of "America's Best Dance Crew," but here are five Super Cr3w secrets I uncovered at the finale once the smoke cleared and the pounds of confetti finally settled:

1. Don't Even Think About Gettin' in Super Cr3w's Way
After learning that his crew just won, Murda was walking around in a daze, but he managed to snap out of it for a brief second to let me congratulate him. He also told me what he whispered to his boys just seconds before Mario announced that they had won. "When we were waiting for the decision I told the guys, 'This is our time. Nobody's going to stop us. You can never stop us. Nobody's ever going to bring us down. This is our time to shine and nobody can take it away from us.'"
2. Dancing Runs in the Family
Super Cr3w's RJ and Supreme Soul's Raul are real-life cousins. They battle each other all the time, so being on opposing teams on 'ABDC' wasn't that big of a deal. But since RJ won, does that mean he's a better dancer? All Raul had to say was, "I'm definitely better looking."
3. Chicken & Waffles: Dinner Of Champions
When football players win the Super Bowl, they head to Disneyland. When "America's Best Dance Crew" is crowned, a celebration is definitely in order, but you won't see Mickey Mouse breaking out his dancing shoes. You will see a whole lot of drumsticks and syrup though because Do-Knock's hungry and he's craving a certain late-night meal. "I'm going to Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles!"
4. Every Winner Needs a Solid Running Mate
Even though Barack Obama hasn't officially announced who his running mate will be yet, Super Cr3w says that Fanny Pak is their Hillary Clinton. Phil Collins -- the Fanny Pakker, not the singer -- told me that the two crews have been close since the very beginning. "Super Cr3w became family the moment we met, so we're honored to be their Hilary. I couldn't be any happier for them."
5. JabbaWockeeZ + Super Cr3w + Shane Sparks = Indescribable AWESOMENESS!
Word on the street is that 'ABDC' will have a special episode airing next Saturday at 1 p.m. on MTV where Status Quo, BreakSk8, Kaba Modern, SoReal Cru and Fanny Pak will compete for an appearance at this year's MTV Video Music Awards. But the real kicker is that champs JabbaWockeeZ and Super Cr3w will be performing a Shane Sparks choreographed routine together onstage for the first time! I can't even imagine what sorts of breathtaking and awe-inspiring moves that trio will produce. You'd be a fool if you missed this monumental event.
