'World of Dance' Season 2 Episode 14 'The Cut' Recap and Results: Who Left and Who Stayed Tonight?

The second round of The Cut on "World of Dance" begins tonight. Find out who gets eliminated and who moves on to the Divisional Finals, here.

The World of Dance competition continues as the final round of The Cut kicks off, Wednesday, Aug. 29 at 9 p.m. EDT. The final acts will face off for coveted spots in the Divisional Finals.

If you aren't familiar with how The Cut works, each week all remaining acts in a single division (Junior, Junior Team, Upper and Upper Team) perform for the judges and only three acts from each division will move on to the Divisional Finals. As each act performs, the judges will submit scores based off the show's unique five-point scoring system. The three teams with the highest average will move on to the Divisional Finals, and the losing acts will be eliminated. During the Duels, 30 acts made it through the head-to-head battles and moved on to The Cut.

Last week the Junior Team and Upper acts performed. This week, Junior acts and Upper Groups will vie for spots in the Divisional Finals. 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. You can also check out a rundown of which acts made it through and which were eliminated last week at the bottom of this post.
