Les Twins at the World of Dance

The World of Dance series has come to a close, and the Les twins have taken home the million dollar prize. The two brothers came in just 0.2 points higher then young Eva Igo, who walked away as the runner up. Swing Latino won the group divisional and placed third overall. But what's interesting about this final line up is the negative responses on social media.

Not everyone was jumping for joy when the season finale rolled around. After divisional finals ended, the world took to Facebook and spoke their mind... It seemed that many viewers with the judges, and wanted Kinjaz and Keone and Mari to go through instead of Swing Latino and Les Twins. Additionally, the dance community didn't seem too thrilled that Les Twins beat Iva Igo. Throughout the competition, she's become a sort of "sweetheart" and a true fan favorite, stealing the audience's heart when she said that she would use the prize money to pay for her own dance education. However, Les Twins took the win, and it's hard to deny the talent behind their creative and innovative movement style.

So now we have a world champion of dance, but whether or not the world is in agreement with the decision is another issue...
