“World of Dance” judge Jennifer Lopez and special guest Savion Glover mentored the Junior Team Division contestants during the Cut, and Lopez was a little worried that The Fabulous Sisters from Fukushima, Japan, didn’t have an entirely cohesive routine prepared. But she changed her tune when she saw their complete performance. They were decked out in regal gold costumes and ruled ferociously from a throne. Imagine if Cersei Lannister from “Game of Thrones” blew up the Sept of Baelor with just the power of urban dance.
What did you think? Watch their complete routine above, and read what the judges had to say about it below.
Ne-Yo: “Here’s what I love about this group: you guys can take the most elementary move and turn it into something so amazing. You are a little monster, you right there. You guys came up and killed it, hands down.”
Jennifer Lopez: “You guys made me tired, and I don’t get tired. Your formations and pictures from our mentoring session went up so much, and I loved that we really made you the focal point of this and it didn’t get lost in the middle of it and it made it so strong. You know, it’s very interesting choreography. It’s so different than anybody else in the competition. Beautiful.”
Derek Hough: “I thought it was really nice that Jennifer let you borrow her throne. Again, the way you dance the choreography is so amazing. The intensity, and then right when I thought, ‘Oh, this is a great routine,’ you all took a shot of espresso and just went into hyper mode. It was like ‘Whoa!’ The way you used your costume at the end: very simple, but very, very effective. It was one of those ‘ooh’ moments. It was so good.”
The Fabulous Sisters scored 94 from Ne-Yo, 97 from Lopez and 98 from Hough, giving them an average of 96.3. That was a tremendous score, but it was only the second best Junior Team Division score during the Cut given how much the judges loved the performance by The Lab. Nevertheless, it was good enough to earn them a spot in the upcoming Junior Team Division Final. Who do you think deserves to win the division? Vote in our poll below to let us know.
