Who won on the season 2 finale of World of Dance tonight? Before we get into the spoilers on the winner, THIS IS YOUR MAJOR SPOILER WARNING. Do NOT continue reading if you don’t want to know the results.
Going into the finale, there were four acts left, each from one of the four categories – Junior, Junior Team, Upper and Upper Team. The four finalist acts are contemporary dancer Michael Dameski, hip hop group S-Rank, hip hop group The Lab, and contemporary duo Charity & Andres. Each of these acts had two routines to prepare and each team was assigned either a judge or the host to pick a song for them. Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, and Derek Hough make up the judges’ panel, while Jenna Dewan (of Step Up) is the host.
Each of the performers brought their A-game tonight, but it seemed like the groups really had the most impact. In the end, though, only one act won the $1 million prize. And it was … The Lab.

For the first round of scores, Charity & Andrews received a total of 94.3, S-Rank got 93, Dameski received a 95.7, and The Lab was put into first place with a 97.
When it comes to each act’s second performance of the night, the song choice was left up to them, not the judges.
A few acts from season 1 came aboard to perform, breaking up the finale performances a bit. Judge Derek Hough even joined in as a surprise.
As the second performances were executed, more scores were delivered. S-Rank received a 93.5, while Charity & Andres got a 94.3. Michael Dameski then receives a 96.3, which bumps out Charity & Andres. The Lab then took the stage and for their second performance, the score they got was … 97.5.
