‘World of Dance’ is on fire for the second week in a row! On the June 6 episode, we met the second round of contestants who will compete for the $1 million prize! And, after we cried nearly four times, we realized that the competition just got crazier! Check out our HollywoodLife.com recap!
Alright, alright alright! Let’s get into the second episode ever of World of Dance! It was hard to watch the June 6episode, only because we couldn’t decide who we loved more! As you know, we met the first round of “qualifier” contestants who will compete for the grand prize on last week’s premiere. And, this week, we got to meet the other batch of “qualifiers”! Here we go!
[JUNIOR]: “The Lab”. The group of young teens [boys and girls] rocked the floor with a hip hop routine and their energy was contagious! — Neyo: , J.Lo, , Derek: , AVERAGE SCORE: [91.3]
[UPPER]: “Fik-Shun” from Las Vegas, Nevada. The solo act killed it while he put on an emotional performance that touched the judges. He told a story about how he was alone as a kid, and his divorced parents were separated from him when he was a young boy. He and Jennifer Lopez had an emotional moment, where she said his performance was “moving.” Neyo , J. Lo , Derek . FINAL SCORE: 
[TEAM] “Miami All-Stars”, Miami Florida: The salsa-dancing, gymnastic, DWTS-like group killed it with a routine set to J.Lo’s song, “Dance Again”! The judges loved it and J. Lo emotionally connected with the group! But, Neyo wasn’t particularly a fan. In the end the scores weren’t what a lot of people were hopeful for. However, the “All-Stars” were safe, for now. Neyo , J. Lo , Derek . FINAL SCORE: 
[UPPER] “Luka & Jenalyn”, Toronto Canada: The young couple did a beautiful, acrobatic dance and the judges were obsessed! Their physical skills were actually insane. Neyo [83 ], J. Lo , Derek . FINAL SCORE: [86.7]
[UPPER] “Quick Style”, Oslo, Norway: The young trio of guy best friends, who had already danced together for 12 years, used to be embarrassed about dancing. Therefore, they would tell their friends and family that they were out at other places when they practiced. Their moves were the cleanest and most put together we’ve ever seen. And, they made Dolly Parton‘s “Jolene” a hip hop dance! The judges loved the clean choreography, and the original take on Parton, but they needed more. However, they knew “Quick Style” had huge promise. Neyo [85 ], J. Lo , Derek . FINAL SCORE: [86.7]
[UPPER] “Nick Daniels” was a contemporary dancer who had a very personal story. He lost his devoted father to cancer three years ago. Every time Nick dances, he thinks of his dad, who completely supported his dancing career. Coincidentally, on his World of Dance audition, it was also the date of his dad’s birthday. In the end, the judges thought he had the “it factor,” especially Neyo. Neyo , J. Lo , Derek . FINAL SCORE:
