'World of Dance' Callbacks: The Rise stun with their gravity-defying act, fans say they set the bar real high
'The Rise' managed to impress both the judges and the fans with their performance
'The Rise' managed to instantly capture Jennifer Lopez's interest after their qualifiers performance but failed to impress Derek Hough and Ne-Yo. They felt that the Arizona based dance-group should up their performance by a notch and asked the hip-hop group to come back for a callback performance. The hip-hop dance crew took the judges' feedback pretty seriously and worked on their routine and synchronization.
They incorporated all the feedback they received into their callbacks performance routine. For the callbacks, 'The Rise' chose to perform to Usher's popular dance track 'OMG'. With their gravity-defying acrobatics and jaw-dropping synchronization, the dance crew left all the three judges impressed. The judges couldn't stop praising the clean routine and how high-energy their performance was. Ne-Yo in particular pointed out to the group member Myson Junior and praised him for his high-energy levels. He explained how Myson brought in amazing energy whenever he was at the center of the stage and encouraged the group to put him in the center because he was definitely a high-energy performer. JLo and Derek agreed with Ne-Yo and praised Myson's performance while adding that the other group members too were incredible.
They ended their feedback by encouraging the group to put their best foot forward for every performance and not to hold back anything for the next performance. They collectively agreed that the crew displayed a significant improvement in their performance from their qualifiers. The crew left without having any idea if they would make it to the next round. Thankfully, the judges were thoroughly impressed and unanimously agreed that the crew deserved to move to the next round.
Fans too were impressed with 'The Rise' crew's performance and began cheering for them. A fan tweeted, "The Rise definitely did not disappoint tonight. Their performance was a definite step up from qualifiers. Good luck gentlemen you definitely redeemed yourselves tonight. I hope you make it through @NBCWorldofDance #therise #worldofdance." Another fan wrote, "I might be officially rooting for The Rise and that cute white-haired guy. World of Dance." One more said, "The Rise killed it!!!! #WorldOfDance," while another fan pointed out, "Oh wow The Rise set the bar so high @JLo #WorldOfDance."
