    What a great song, but for me that was not their best performance. For me the winners were Charity and Andres

    I'm commenting late...but congrats to The Lab.
    We are all waiting for the world to change.
    Just like J-Lo said " It's our generation that will change the world "
    We are all waiting for that day.
    Our world will change.
    Shoot, now I'm getting emotional for some reason.

    This was a good dance for the finals. The Lab has proved that they’re amazing dancers for two seasons, so for the finale they wanted to make a real impact. I think it was a good decision. We already know that they’re great and I believe that this just made it even more known.

    Pffff next time JLo should create "Spanish" World of Dance. Too many flaws (flower, newspaper...) Not their best performance at all!!!!! Simple and pure injustice towards Michael!!!!

    I'm glad they won, their message is very beautiful and their technique was great. Anybody can have technique, but few have the ability to move audiences with their storytelling. Great job!

    The Lab did so well, I truly loved all of their performances. Nobody can take away the blood, sweat, and tears that they poured into their routines. The amount of effort they put into their routines, the amount of effort Micheal put into his routines should never be taken for granted, but guess what somebody has to win, somebody has to lose. Everybody that stepped out onto the WOD stage came to win and in the end the winners were The Lab. So you all need to suck it up and stop acting like little toddlers throwing a fit because Michael Dameski didn't win. You don't see him throwing a petty fit and discrediting these amazing kids on an amazing win. You can say that the show is rigged, or that in your opinion Micheal should have one, but don't you dare discredit those kids because they deserve it, they truly do.

    after ten times of watching it, i still cry. lab, if you for some odd reason are reading this, i love this dance. this was my favourite.

    also on WOD most groups did something to try to get the judges to soften up to them. this was different.
    they wanted to do this dance to spread a message
    tons of love for you guys i cant wait to see the rest of your path.

  • SerenaT

    They are absolutely amazing but let's be real....they are only the 75,000th dance crew or talent show contestant that has had the same message from as far back as the first season of ABDC. If that worked, Trump would not be our president and they would all be volunteering at a soup kitchen instead of competing for money. I loved this routine and this group...just sick to death of this message because it clearly means nothing and it just feels like these groups think they need to have a message to win and it seems disingenuous.

      they may not be volunteering in a soup kitchen, but they are putting all the money they won towards scholarships for kids who can't afford dance

    Is it just me or is this an homage to the entire season? I think I see costuming and moves from all the others in the competition. If so , it just makes it even more brilliant.

  • Reginald Williams

    I haven't seen all of season 2 of world of dance; but after The Lab came back and went all out in the world finals they just proved one absolute truth, THEY ARE B.F.A.B.B.{Born From A Boom Box; ("Step Up #3") and they already changed the world. their final performance at the finals of world of dance just proved that. If The Lab are reading this now, I'm blown away of how successful you all have become. I'm 26 years old and I definitely see the future of dance period. Your family, friends, and role models are so proud of you. I hope the world sees how amazing, dedicated, and passionate you kids are. Not only are you all professionals, but you are the future in dance, maybe entertainment entirely! Good Luck and mad respect for The Lab!!!

    This dance is so incredible! And incredibly human. This was so unexpected, but I definitely got chills. It is amazing how a small group of kids can make you feel so many emotions in such a short time period! When we look to the future it can sometimes seem hopeless, but when I see kids like these with passion, love, heart, soul, and hope, it gives me real faith. I am so proud of the lab! They are a huge inspiration to me in dance and in life💞 I'm So happy for you!💝

    Michael was amazing but no he SHOULDN'T have won.. who SHOULD have won this season actually walked away with the victory and that's rare in the business nowadays.. its typically biased and fixed.. the lab never let down they came ready for war and to win... so did Michael im a fan of his also but he didn't win.. it doesn't matter if you guys think he should've won or not because he didn't.. oh well move on.. congrats to the well deserved 2018 WOD champions, who i predicted day one would win WOD.. 👑👑The Lab👑👑

  • Mercy Daniel-Aguebor

    Not to overanalyze but after reading a lot of the comments. I think I can make a case as to why the lab won fair and square:
    1. They were willing to take risks. i.e Contemporary songs, lots of props. No risk no reward
    2. They were willing to expose themselves. Call it sob stories all you want, they gave those dances their all every single time. All the judges were looking for was let those dances come from somewhere within you. They found it and danced it out.
    3. They had help, they lost last year and realized they needed help to be the best and they got it. Life lesson to learn - you will always need help if you want to be at the top of your game.
    4. Every of their performance has a distinguishing factor, maybe except the qualifiers. Life Lesson -Be memorably consistent
    5. And now the argument that always comes up - technicality. The final performance for a $1 million prize, while technicality is counted, people know your technicality already. They want a wow, damn moment. This is not the time to seal your win, this is the time to do something you have never done before, to push the boundaries of your art and that is what its going to come down to. Life Lesson- If you want to influence people to give you a million dollars, they have to feel like you did something FOR them.
    Jeez, I didn't plan to write a whole essay but anyway/ Let's live and learn, not live and argue. Life is too short. There will be a new season next year and some of your favorites are definitely not going to make it. Embrace the disappointment and learn from it.

    Isn't it obvious J - Lo didn't want them to win? This deserved a perfect score, not a 96! She may have acted like she was touched, but I think those were crocidle tears for the camera...

    I'm not a pessimistic person but really they were that moved because they think this generation is gonna change the world? Yeah no I've seen enough of this generation to know that they're not gonna do that unless everyone is like these kids, which they're not. I really like the Lab and they've been great all year, but they went for sappy and they got it because they're young kids. Any other performers would have not gotten even a 90 for that performance. I still think they deserved to win ever since their performance to Lemon so I'm not knocking them I'm knocking the judges, especially Ne-Yo. Can't give what he quotes as "near perfection" higher than a 93, but gives this a 100. Get outta here
