HOLLYWOOD, California – The Jabbawockeez, one of the most successful dance groups in the world, are up for a couple of awards this weekend.

The group is very busy with their regular Las Vegas show as well as some high-profile performances.

They recently headlined a dance concert at the 5 Towers of the Universal City Walk and attracted a big crowd at the venue.

Their career is at an all-time high with weekly popular show in Las Vegas.

"We're still doing well, you know, five days a week," said the group.

The Jabbawockeez, whose several members include Filipino-Americans, also participated in the Rebuild Philippines Typhoon Yolanda benefit concert last June.

They are also raising what could be the next generation of Jabbawockeez. Their children joined them on stage at their Universal City Walk performance.

Their video "Regenerate" also received two nominations for the upcoming 4th Annual Streamy Awards which honors the best online videos in America.

Their fellow nominees include the internet's most popular stars as well as Hollywood celebrities like Julia Stiles and David Arquette.

The Jabbawockeez are up for Best Dance Channel and Best Choreography.

"I think it was amazing. It was a passion project that we put up. For people to respond to it the way that they did, I think it was pretty awesome. We're grateful for it," they said.

Their post-apocalyptic dance video "Regenerate" has been viewed more than three million times since it was released in February.
