Indian dance crew The Kings win US reality show World of Dance, take home 1 million dollar
Mumbai’s hip-hop dance crew The Kings, the 14-member crew that impressed judges including Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo and Derek Hough with their amazing performances, have won NBC’s dance reality show World of Dance beating the other finalists. They took home the prize money of 1 million dollar. Canadian contemporary dancer Briar Nolet, sister duo of Ellie and Ava, VPeepz, a hip-hop group from the Philippines, and Unity LA, a 10-person squad from Southern California, managed to reach the finale–that took place on May 5 (Sunday)–apart from The Kings.
The win of 14-member squad aged between 17-27 doesn’t come as a surprise as they had been getting blockbuster scores throughout the three-months run of the show.
The Kings that specialises in Bolly-hip-hop style started out from the streets of Mumbai in 2008, but shot to limelight after winning India’s Got Talent Season 3. They secured a third place in World Hip-Hop Dance Championship 2015.
The third season of American reality show World of Dance premiered on February 26, 2019, on NBC. Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, and Derek Hough returned as the judges for their third consecutive seasons. Scott Evans replaced Jenna Dewan as the host.
