The third season of 'The World of Dance' premiered on February 26 and, ever since, it has kept fans and viewers on their toes with amazing performances. Hosted by Scott Evans, the reality TV competition is judged by Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, and Derek Hough, who returned to the panel for the third consecutive year.
The one round that has become a favourite for fans and viewers is the Duel Round and, this season, the show made things even more exciting with the addition of Redemption Round. The Redemption Round is a battle where the top two scoring acts who have been eliminated during The Duels will have go head-to-head in a dance-off to a preselected song right on the spot. The winning act will receive the final slot in the Cut Round.
While we wait for the first Duel Round episode to air on Sunday, MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) brings you an exclusive clip that features Jonathan y Jorge, the first ever same-gender salsa duo. They go up against Denise and Josh. In the clip, we see Jonathan y Jorge take to the stage and get ready to perform.
The minute they start to perform, the crowd erupts in a loud cheer and the judges are stunned. With ample lifts during their dance, the duo does not miss a single beat and keep the judges and audience entertained. During their performance, we can hear Jennifer Lopez tell Ne-Yo that they have impressed her with their performance.
This same gender salsa duo is proving that they have what it takes to be a real threat on 'World of Dance'. In 2017, after just two weeks of training together, they won second place at a World Championship in Same Gender. And, in 2018, they placed third overall at the World Salsa Summit in Same Gender.
After their performance, Denise and Josh take to the stage. Though they performed to a much slower-paced song than Jonathan y Jorge, they were perfect with every move, portraying emotions as they danced. This made the crowd erupt in cheer. Their ending was the main highlight of their dance that caught the judges eyes.
To know who won the duel, we will have to wait till Sunday when the episode airs. 'The World of Dance' airs on Sunday at 9 am EST /6 am PST. Check your local listings for more information.
