The Kings are a lot of things, but it turns out invulnerable isn’t one of them. They have dominated the competition on “World of Dance” every step of the way in the show’s Upper Team Division, but on the day of their Divisional Final performance one member injured his ankle so badly the team wondered if they might be doomed. But while they have the bodies of mortals they gave a performance that was downright supernatural. Watch it above.
Their Divisional Final routine was set to “Yeh Raat” by Anupama and inspired by Indian mythology, and the performance was downright mythic, from the moment one member does a kick and back flip off another member’s chest, to the moment when they simulate a gust of wind blowing through their costumes so convincingly I didn’t even realize there was no wind machine until Jennifer Lopez brought it up during her critique.
Their opponents didn’t let them just walk away with the Upper Team Division title. The Kings had to immediately follow a routine by Unity LA that ended up with an average score of 98.7, which included perfect 100s from both Ne-Yo and Derek Hough. But The Kings still managed to win. They also got 100s from Ne-Yo and Hough, plus a 99 from Lopez, giving them an average of 99.7. That’s the highest score of the season so far, and tied for the third highest score ever recorded on the show.
Karen y Ricardo also posted a 99.7 in the season two Qualifiers. The Lab scored 99.8 during the season two Divisional Final (the math worked out that way because of a fourth guest judge at the table). Only Charity and Andres ever received a perfect 100, which they achieved during the season two Duels. Is it possible that the Kings could still be saving the best for last?
