You might know Frankie Grande as the YouTuber friend of GloZell and Colleen Ballinger, Ariana Grande’s brother, one half of #Zankie on Big Brother, or the Justin Bieber superfan.
However, this summer, Frankie will be known as a dance judge on MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew All Stars: Road to the VMAs” – for six episodes starting July 29th at 11/10 Central.

Frankie could not hold back his excitement on Twitter as he revealed the big news.
He even posted a dramatic trailer for his announcement on his YouTube channel.
America’s Best Dance Crew was originally cancelled in 2012, after a respectable 7-season run.
Despite the low ratings, the show managed to launch the careers of multiple stars – including the Jabbawockeez (who now have a show in Las Vegas) and Camren Bicondova of 8 Flavahz (who plays Catwoman on Fox’s Gotham).
ABDC, a show produced by Randy Jackson, originally premiered in 2008, and featured an ever-changing table of judges that included Lil Mama, JC Chasez, Dominic “D-Trix” Sandoval, Shane Sparks and Omarion.
Frankie will be joined by musicians Teyana Taylor and T-Pain.
