On April 24, I wrote a story about local dancer Joey Falcon, who was trying out for the MTV show "America's Best Dance Crew." Falcon is a member of the Houston dance studio Planet Funk, and was chosen along with six other dancers to represent the studio in the competition.

Hopes were high that the team would make it all the way, potentially even winning the entire competition.

Unfortunately, earlier this week I received a call from Joey's father, Joe Falcon. One of the Planet Funk dancers is from Russia and was having visa problems. And although the team did extremely well in try-outs, MTV said they couldn't wait for the visa problems to be straightened out and they dropped them from the show.

Mr. Falcon added that Joey and the rest of the team is devastated but hopefully they can come back again next year even stronger.

So here's to hoping for next year, Joey. Victoria is behind you.
