Nakapasok ang Filipino dance crew na VPeepz sa world finals ng U.S. dance competition show na World Of Dance Season 3.
Dahil sa kanilang boxing-themed routine gamit ang song na “Party People,” ang VPeepz ang nakatanggap ng highest score mula sa judges sa division finals na ginanap noong April 28 (Monday, April 29, Manila time).
Pinahanga ng VPeepz, na nakipag-compete sa Junior Team division, ang mga judges na sina Ne-Yo, Jennifer Lopez, and Derek Hough dahil sa level of difficulty ng kanilang movements.
“It’s really very intricate. You guys were body slamming and doing all kinds of crazy things up there, but you also broke somebody’s legs. That was my favorite part. The illusion of it was a really great illusion. That really gave you guys a high point in the middle of your routine,” comment ni J Lo.
Pinuri naman ni Ne-Yo ang synchronicity ng grupo sa kanilang performance.
“There’s a level of synchronicity that you guys have that I can genuinely say there are very few other people in this competition that even come close. It’s that good.”
Nasabi naman ni Hough na ang performance ng VPeepz ay “so appropriate right now at this stage of the competition.”
Dagdag pa niya: “Well done. You should be very, very proud.”
Ayon sa isang member ng VPeepz, may mga iniba raw sila sa kanilang routine dahil baka hindi ma-impress si J.Lo sa kanilang performance.
Si Ne-Yo ay binigyan sila ng score of 96, si J Lo ay nagbigay ng score na 95, samantalang 97 ang nakuha nilang score mula kay Derek Hough.
Nakakuha ng total score of 96 ang Vpeepz kaya sila ang nanalo sa junior team division at nakakuha ng slot sa grand finals.
Naging malaking tulong si Jennifer Lopez sa ginawang routine ng VPeepz sa divisional finals. Nagpasalamat ang Pinoy dance crew sa pamamagitan ng pag-upload ng group photo nila with J Lo at pagsulat sa caption ng picture:
"Feeling cute, might delete - NEVER!
"Thank you @jlo for mentoring us for our divisional finals piece! We were so focused on always being objective and taking advantage of our strengths, we forgot about the intangibles. With a Thanos-snap of a finger she immediately pointed them out and removed what we both realized we didn't like and completely revemped our routine to what it is now.
"Such an honor to meet and learn from someone who's professional at her craft. Such an inspiration!"
