“World of Dance” airs tonight, August 1, and will pit its two best Junior Division dancers against each other for the division finals. But who deserves to win: Eva Igo or Diana Pombo? Take a look at each performer in the video above, and then vote in our poll below to let us know who you’re rooting for.
Igo got the highest score last week during The Cut thanks to her emotionally raw performance inspired by feelings of being an outsider. Igo is a 14-year-old dancer from Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota, and she’s incredibly accomplished for a dancer of any age. She was winning regional titles by the time she was seven and national titles by age 11, and she’s trained in multiple styles including jazz, tap, ballet, and contemporary.
Pombo hails from Miami, Florida, and she is just as precocious as her Junior Division rival. She too has won multiple national titles, including Mini Female Best Dancer 2016 at the Dance Awards. She has also toured with Break the Floor Productions.
The Junior Division is one of three classes of competitors featured on “World of Dance.” They’ve been winnowing the field down to the best of the best on the way to awarding a grand prize of $1 million. In addition to the Junior dancers there are also Upper Division competitors Keone & Mari and Les Twins, and Team Division acts Kinjaz and Swing Latino remaining in the contest.
So which Junior competitor deserves the division title? Vote for Eva Igo or Diana Pombo below to let us know. Make sure to discuss the competition more in the comments, and discuss this and more with your fellow reality TV fans in our forums.
