MENNO

Defending World Champion Menno (Netherlands) represents the new generation of Dutch B-Boys. The most recent addition to the Red Bull BC One All Stars, he's a dancer with heart, explosive energy and plenty of surprises. He is a master of smooth blow-ups, the mind-boggling moves that whip his audience into a frenzy and his signature moves are baby-freeze transitions, slides and rolls. Menno has taken home two Undisputed titles already this year, at R16 Korea and Battle of the Year. Will he take home a third Saturday night?

POCKET

 

Hailing from the world-famous Morning of Owl crew, Wild Card entry Pocket is a ferocious power mover with stamina and combos unparalleled in the world circuit. It’s almost as if he constantly sets the bar with his mind-blowing moves, and many dancers then have to catch up to follow his lead. This marks the young B-Boy’s first Red Bull BC One World Final.

LIL ZOO

 

Lil Zoo is no stranger to the battle circuit. The young Moroccan B-Boy won the Red Bull BC One Middle East Africa Final three times. Rome will mark his third World Final appearance, having battled in Rio de Janeiro (2012) and Seoul (2013). Lil Zoo is not only a seasoned, high-level global battler, but he also toured with Red Bull Flying Illusion in 2014. He is the first B-Boy in Red Bull BC One history to ever take home three Finals titles.

BRUCE ALMIGHTY

Portugal's Bruce Almighty (Momentum Crew) was crowned Red Bull BC One Western Europe Final Champion in Madrid in October. The event was his second Finals appearance, the first having been in 2012 in Holland. A master in the foundations of B-Boying, he's known for his humorous approach to the dance and even borrowed his B-Boy name from a Jim Carrey film. Saturday marks his first-ever Red Bull BC One World Final appearance.
