On tonight’s episode, we watched the final round of qualifiers!
To start off the show, we had the famous Jabbawockeez blow us away with their intricate style. This crew came on the show because they are always growing and are striving to keep their legacy going. “You cannot have a dance competition with the best dancers in the world, without the Jabbawockeez,” Ne-Yo said. Of course they moved on to the next round with an overall score of 86.7!
Next up we had the Mihacevich Sisters. These sisters are powerful, strong, hard-hitting contemporary dancers who brought a beautiful performance to the stage. Their synchronization was out of this world! Moving on with a score of 87, we cannot wait to see what they will come up with next.
Another team competing on this stage is Swing Latino. Swing Latino has been dancing together for 15 years! With really fast footwork and amazing partnering moves, they came to show Columbian salsa to the world, and blew us away. Derek Hough said, “That was artistic and incredibly athletic.” We cannot wait to see what they bring next with their score of 89.3!
Ian Eastwood and the Young Lions came onto the show with little competition experience. Although Ian’s youtube videos get tons of views, the judges wanted more of a competition level performance. JLo stated that this routine was a little too mellow. But there is no denying that this group is amazingly talented with their smooth, intricate style. Ian and the Young Lions appreciated their feedback and are going to come back stronger!
Closing the show we had solo artist, Eva Igo, bring a powerful contemporary, jazz routine. Only being 14 years old, she blew us away with her strength, flexibility, and technique! “Eva you are absolutely extraordinary. You dominated that stage,” said Derek. Eva moved onto the next round with a score of 88!
About eight more groups moved on to the next round. Make sure to catch them on next week’s episode on NBC!
