'The World's Best': Fans reveal what actually happened during Dimash Kudaibergen's championship performance
Not everything was hunky dory for the show, with fans and viewers furious that there were a lot of edits and many performances were cropped in very bad ways.
CBS' 'The World's Best' premiered in the month of February and recently the talent series came to an end. 13-year-old pianist Lydian Nadhaswaram was crowned the winner in the finale and he won a sum of a million dollars.
During each episode, the series never failed to deliver viewers and fans their weekly dose of entertainment. The contestants who performed had impeccable talent. There were singers with high vocal ranges, magicians, martial art experts, and rock bands.
Hosted by talk show host James Corden, the show's main judges were Drew Barrymore, RuPaul Charles, and Faith Hill. The show also showcased 50 feature judges who were known as the 'Wall of the World'. These experts helped the main judges in deciding the ultimate winner.
But not everything was hunky dory for the show, with fans and viewers furious that there were a lot of edits and many performances were cropped in very bad ways from what the contestants originally performed. Another reason why fans were left furious was because of the way judges reacted when Dimash Kudaibergen revealed that he does not want to compete against kids and is quitting the show.
But what they don't know is what exactly happened during the Championship round, between the judges and Kudaibergen. Two fans who were a part of the live audience, Patrice and Anita took to their YouTube channel and revealed what exactly happened during the Championship rounds and how much was edited out during the airing of the episode.
Talking about Dimash's conversation about him quitting the show Anita revealed how much was actually cut when the episode aired. "Mainly I would say that, what happened in the studio, and what was presented on air were very different. Things were cut out, important things were cut out. Where Dimash actually said he had something to state to the judges and the audience." Continuing, Patrice revealed that Dimash's announcement was that he wouldn't compete with Daneliya Tuleshova and Nadhaswaram because in his culture it is about elevating children and encouraging them and that elders do not compete with kids.
Adding to that the duo revealed that Dimash stated before he could join the show, the first question he asked the producers if he would have to compete against kids, to which they told him that he wouldn't have to. But in the end, during the Championship round, they told him that he had to compete with the kids. Patrice revealed that this piece of information that Dimash had shared had been very clearly edited out.
Apart from cutting out Dimash's statement, the duo revealed that the show also edited out the judges' reactions to Dimash's statement. Apart from what happened to Dimash on stage, Patrice and Anita went on to add that the audience was shocked by the unprofessional behavior of the judges and their lack of respect to another culture that they had invited to the show.
They even spoke about how the live performances were totally different from the ones aired. Revealing that it was chopped in a very bad way. "Every performer, performed a full performance, and they edited it," revealed Patrice.
