Out of 7 members, 4 of them are Filipinos: Chris “Cristyle” Gatdula, Joe “Emajoenation” Larot, Rynan “Kid Rainen” Paguio and Phil “Swaggerboy” Tayag.

It was hosted by Mario Lopez, who hosts entertainment news show Extra and who has recently taken on The X-Factor with Khloe Kardashian.
"We are grateful to Randy Jackson and Warner Horizon for having brought our audience 7 amazing seasons of dance with ABDC," said MTV in an official statement.
