Five-member Elecoldxhot danced their way into the hearts of the audience at 8TV's Showdown 2011 finale at i-City, Shah Alam on July 6, taking home a cool RM50,000. Comprising Ooi Kok Wei, Yin Zhen Huang, Yap Jin Hou, Ang Joo Yee and Lin Yit Zhou, they emerged victorious in the final battle against HMC Phlow. "We came to win and we're glad that all our efforts over the past six months paid off, so it was all worth it" said Yin. Ooi chipped in "We are thinking of competing at international level with our target being the World Hip Hop Dance Competition.
Elecoldxhot will be taking a week off to enjoy their hard-earned prize money. Yin said "We will definitely have a good holiday now that we are each richer by RM10,000." Mixing dance moves influence by American superstars Justin Timberlake and the late Michael Jackson to South Korean sensation Rain, the Elecoldxhot quintet were clearly a class above the other dance finalists namely, HMC Phlow, Rokusteps and Bounce Stepperz.
Elecoldxhot convincingly won with their every performance, and delivered their best choreography during songs like In For The Kill (by British duo La Roux) and Welcome To My Hood (by American trio DJ Khaled, T-Pain and Busta Rhymes). Rokusteps was eliminated after the first round for having the least text votes. Next to leave was Bounce Stepperz after their stellar performance failed to garner enough votes for the final face-off.
