  • 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🤢🤢🤢🤮🤮🤮🤮😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴

  • Dang. This is Amazing. How just wow . That's who they really are . *Crying*


  • Song?

  • congarts, but one day the world may not change because everything we do to try to make the world change, sometimes they wont listen to us and their gonna keep doing whats wrong sometimes. but one day we will have a home somewhere in heaven with god and you will get to meet everyone you loved. so just be patient and wait for god and have faith in him all the time please.

  • Sorry, but this didn't impress me all that much. I went to a performing arts high school and this reminded me of one of our musicals. I thought the choreography for that couple (I think their names were Andre and Charity) was far better.

  • Dtrix did an amazing job with the choreography 👏🏻

  • If I could like this video every day I would

  • Great symbolic routine BUT U SHOULDNT HAVE WON!

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

  • this is the reason why they killed it.... congrats! I love the guy with silver hair marry me

  • I’ve never cried over a dance like this but.. there’s a first time for everything right?

  • They didn't deserve the win!!

  • song??

  • 1:07 makes my heart explode... that kid makes me believe in a bright future

  • i want this version of waiting on the world to change to be on spotify

  • what the title song

  • 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.

  • J lo reaction in 1:22 , She is so amazed about wht they done *-*

  • I don't cry while watching dance videos. I balled my eyes out so hard my parents thought that someone had died.

  • 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.

  • The fabulous sisters should've won 💀💀👎

  • 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 actually know both the smaller kids in real life. Ayden and AJ

    • Like I actually met face to face

  • The kid in the burgundy pants was the choreographer for a quinceñera I was in

  • whats the remixed song called?

  • 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!

  • replay button 0:00 0:00 0:00 cost one like

  • wow

  • this is 3D dance


  • Weh, weh Such cry babies...

  • so we're still not thinking about why there were only contemporary and hip hop acts in the finals? ok 🍵


  • Do you have resources mp3? Please share me! Thanks!

  • They're sooo great just like their message !!!😭❤❤❤💪👑

  • I not crying! My eyes are just taking a shower!

  • Amazing !

  • I think I speak for everyone when I say while this is an amazing performance , it's just not the Lab.

  • This brought me to tears when I first watched it and really gave me more hope for my generation. It was beautiful and full of humanity. They truest deserved to win

  • this choreo looks exactly like videos dtrix makes p.s. i know dtrix did their choreos, im just saying

  • Love love love! Great message. Seriously great performances! Thank those judges, because the they heard you loud & clear! D Trix, is the man! Sending positive vibes your way. PEACE LOVE & DREAMS!🇨🇦 💞🌐📷🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌍💜🌏💚🌎🍁🎼🎶✌💕💭🎬😉

  • Frontrow please!!! I want to see the whole thing put together. Amazing

  • 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.

  • crying? OH honey I'm SOBBING

  • Half filipino half American..we proud of you.. talented absolutely amazing. Proven and undebatable that if you have filipino blood.....talented!!!

  • 👏👎👎👎 in my opinion I don't think they should have won. i get it they are positive and bla bla bla but it's a dance competition.

  • Congratulations to The Lab and D-Trix! Amazing job throughout the season!!!

  • You our favorite team out of the whole world of The whole world of dance

  • 1:01 to 1:11 gave me a HUGE Goosebumps. Well kids , you guys are the kings to the future.

  • To all the people who disliked go see theorpy or something cause hmmmmmm something most be wrong with you. OMG!😔😥🙂😂

  • Ya see this is why there my favorite dancers, this is why I watch beautiful things like this,THIS IS WHY I LOVE DANCE! OMG I AM TOUCHED!😭😤😊😍🤗

  • Nice performance 😊 but still Micheal captured my heart😍 ...

  • They deserved to win. Amazing kids👍

  • name of two little kids? :)

  • A true story

  • Ugh I love them

  • The 441 people that didn’t like this suck. The lab is perfect. Congrats season 2 Champs. So dope. I see nothing but great things. Just wow

  • Before the final round I thought that all the people competing were all equally good and all equally deserved to win, but this performance knocked it out of the park

  • I watched ALL of the final competitors.... The Lab earned Top Seed! Congratulations 🎊

  • 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.

  • I love the military propaganda! It really motivates me to keep bombing civilans! :D

  • This got me crying so hard

  • 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

  • I always tear up watching this performance

  • why im I crying ..?? so beautiful performance..

  • my fav performance!!!!

  • Wow but like, why am I crying

  • I can't believe this video has 436 thumbs down they did a very good job

  • Beautiful. They are really good

  • Ils sont très fort. J'adore

  • 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.

  • 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!!!

  • I really want this song remix

  • I love the lab so much but I really think Charity and Andres deserved to win, they were much more versatile and it’s harder to entertain and crowd with only two people (plus charity had a broken toe)

  • This made me so emotional. They really did deserve this win! Xoxo Congrats Lab! ❤️

  • had to pause around 1:20ish to say whoaaaa. y'all are awesome =)))

    • awesome feedback from the judges. im impressed

  • Awesome performance and awesome message!!

  • The deserve to win. Happy u guys won

  • The Lab is a mini Quest Crew. No wonder they won!

  • C’mon Jennifer

  • Great performance. Congrats. T.L

  • You make kids all around the happy and we will change the world into a happy place

  • 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!💝

  • Why are these dudes always crying :/

  • Im just here because a kid in my school is in the dance i dont know his nanebut he has a yellow jacket and hes in the middle

  • Please guys can I get one 🌹 because there's someone by my side I wanted to pass it to...... What a demonstration so emotional

  • Remember when dom danced to this on sytycd haha brings back so much memories

  • MAYER MAYER MAYER😊🙏💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖

  • Ohhhhh that was amazing

  • love karen y ricardo but The Lab brought it. All the people that hit thumbs down, HOW, WHY Because your pick didn't win GROW UP There is absolutely no reason to not like. It's inspiring, brush your hangups off your shoulders and step up.

  • 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👑👑

  • Tre's 'sad' face at the end looks so fake lmao

  • Nah Michael was amazing, but I agreed with the judge's decision. The Lab did great both rounds.

  • WOW

  • This piece brought me to tears 😭... I love you guys so much and it’s amazing to see how much you’ve grown. Plz never stop doing what your doing, continue to inspire not only the youth but Everyone!!! ♥️♥️

  • im a fan of sean and kaycee but they deserved to win

  • Am I the only one who got goosebumps 😍

  • 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.

  • So well executed: technically and emotionally. Great job Lab.👍
