"America's Best Dance Crew" has been canceled after seven seasons.

The dance competition show helmed by Randy Jackson saw strong ratings in its early years, with viewers dropping out as the series progressed.

"We are grateful to Randy Jackson and Warner Horizon for having brought our audience seven amazing seasons of dance with 'ABDC,' and look forward to more successful and dynamic entertaining collaborations in the future," MTV said in a statement, according to Variety.

"ABDC" wasn't without controversy. Choreographer Shane Sparks was charged with 8 counts of child molestation in 2009. Sparks was also served as a choreographer on "So You Think You Can Dance."

The series' final season wrapped up in June and featured dance crews 8 Flavahz, Elektrolytes, Mos Wanted Crew, Fanny Pak, Rated Next Generation, Collizion Crew and more. Lil Mama and JC Chasez served as judges for all seven seasons.

Jackson isn't going anywhere. He'll return to "American Idol" alongside new judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban in January 2013.
