NBC's World of Dance is a 12-week long program with brilliant performances from different groups around the globe. Judges Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough, and Ne-Yo are the showrunners. The judges were awestruck and were left out of words by the high octane performance by The Kings which was a spectacularly choreographed battle sequence.

Living up to all the anticipation and reputation, their final piece included a lot of action sequences. The one main component that stood out from their performance was the inclusion of slow motion into their act. This certainly raised the bars of their performance and left the judges eye popped.
