LAX in the Luxor celebrated six successful years on the Strip with a performance by Luxor headliners Jabbawockeez, as the Season 1 champions of MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew” took to the nightclub’s main stage for a set.

Arriving before 1 a.m. Saturday, Jeff “Phi” Nguyen, Kevin “K.B.” Brewer, Chris “Cristyle” Gatdula, Ben “B-Tek” Chung, Phil “Swagger Boy” Tayag and Tony “Transformer” Tran were dressed in their signature street wear and white masks as they appeared center stage.

The spotlight was on the dance troupe as they performed their mix of choreography, movements and comedy. As they transitioned in between songs, Jabbawockeez members playfully challenged one another to mini-battles, dancing to hits including Psy’s “Gangnam Style,” Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” and LMFAO’s “Sorry for Party Rocking.”

Nearing the finale and to commemorate LAX’s sixth anniversary, Jabbawockeez paused as they pointed to the ceiling, where bursts of confetti and more than 600 balloons fell from the rafters. After their performance, the group made their way to a VIP loft on the second level, where they posed for photographs with fans and partied into the early morning hours.
