    If any adult produced this as their grand final piece would they have won???? (Kids should NEVER be judged against adults unless it’s a singular or two kids because the only way kids should win against adults who are the top of their field is if they’re prodigies and I’m sorry but the chances that all those children are dance prodigies is highly unlikely.)

    Being that the judges are professional dancers they are aware how high the injuries are performing. It comes with the territory and Jennifer has commented before they perform like professionals. Professionals smile through the pain.

    congarts, but one day the world may not change because everything we do to try to make the world change, sometimes they wont listen to us and their gonna keep doing whats wrong sometimes. but one day we will have a home somewhere in heaven with god and you will get to meet everyone you loved. so just be patient and wait for god and have faith in him all the time please.

    Sorry, but this didn't impress me all that much. I went to a performing arts high school and this reminded me of one of our musicals. I thought the choreography for that couple (I think their names were Andre and Charity) was far better.

    We are all waiting for that day.

    This was a good dance for the finals. The Lab has proved that they’re amazing dancers for two seasons, so for the finale they wanted to make a real impact. I think it was a good decision. We already know that they’re great and I believe that this just made it even more known.

    The Lab did so well, I truly loved all of their performances. Nobody can take away the blood, sweat, and tears that they poured into their routines. The amount of effort they put into their routines, the amount of effort Micheal put into his routines should never be taken for granted, but guess what somebody has to win, somebody has to lose. Everybody that stepped out onto the WOD stage came to win and in the end the winners were The Lab. So you all need to suck it up and stop acting like little toddlers throwing a fit because Michael Dameski didn't win. You don't see him throwing a petty fit and discrediting these amazing kids on an amazing win. You can say that the show is rigged, or that in your opinion Micheal should have one, but don't you dare discredit those kids because they deserve it, they truly do.

    after ten times of watching it, i still cry. lab, if you for some odd reason are reading this, i love this dance. this was my favourite.

    also on WOD most groups did something to try to get the judges to soften up to them. this was different.
    they wanted to do this dance to spread a message
    tons of love for you guys i cant wait to see the rest of your path.

  • SerenaT

    They are absolutely amazing but let's be real....they are only the 75,000th dance crew or talent show contestant that has had the same message from as far back as the first season of ABDC. If that worked, Trump would not be our president and they would all be volunteering at a soup kitchen instead of competing for money. I loved this routine and this group...just sick to death of this message because it clearly means nothing and it just feels like these groups think they need to have a message to win and it seems disingenuous.

    I haven't seen all of season 2 of world of dance; but after The Lab came back and went all out in the world finals they just proved one absolute truth, THEY ARE B.F.A.B.B.{Born From A Boom Box; ("Step Up #3") and they already changed the world. their final performance at the finals of world of dance just proved that. If The Lab are reading this now, I'm blown away of how successful you all have become. I'm 26 years old and I definitely see the future of dance period. Your family, friends, and role models are so proud of you. I hope the world sees how amazing, dedicated, and passionate you kids are. Not only are you all professionals, but you are the future in dance, maybe entertainment entirely! Good Luck and mad respect for The Lab!!!
