Who Won ‘World of Dance’ Season 2? World Finals Recap and Results

The World Finals on “World of Dance” begin tonight. Find out which act will win World of Dance Season 2 finale, here.

World of Dance has reached its finale week as the World Final kick off Wednesday, Sept. 12 at 9 p.m. EDT. During the show the final acts from each division will face off and the winner of World of Dance Season 2 will be announced.

If you aren’t familiar with how the World Finals work, the remaining fours acts—one from each division (Junior, Junior Team, Upper and Upper Team) —will perform for the judges but only one act will be chosen as the Season 2 winner.. As each act performs, the judges will submit scores based off the show’s unique five-point scoring system. The act with the highest score will be crowned the Season 2 winner, while the other three teams will say goodbye.

As soon as tonight’s show kicks off, we’ll add live updates and recap information about who made it through and who was eliminated. In the meantime, if you missed last week’s Divisional Finals, you can check out a rundown of which acts made it through and which were eliminated, here.
