    I’m convinced the editors want us to just absolutely hate and despise the judges and think they’re being unfair at this point. Didn’t catch it my first 20 times watching this dance, but someone does drop a cane, which would explain the criticism of the prop. However, that whole section was cut in the show, for some reason, which makes the judges look like they just don’t like props like j-lo doesn’t like dances without stories. Don’t get why they cut it still

      They were out of sync in many places and messed up big time with the prop. At 0:46 you can clearly see that one of the guys dropped his prop and messed it up. He quickly recovered though but this is a big mistake in such competitive show. No wonder their routine was chopped off.

        My favorite routine the entire season and when he drops that cane he picked right back up without missing a beat, those are champions they were stolen from!!! The Kings were great but not dancers!!!

          Paul Sanchez I agree, they should’ve won the kings were all tricks and the actual dancing was something I could do when they did dance

        This team is probably one of the most amazing groups to have ever walked this stage and they are so underrated. Tired of the favoritism towards hip hop groups. This team is nothing put perfection and their technique is out of this world. But some how it is still over looked by the judges. Besides Derek since he’s obviously the only educated and accurate judge. Hip hop crews can’t win forever. And if another wins this year then honestly we need to turn this show into hip hop world of dance. If a team like this doesn’t win then we will probably never see a contemporary group or soloist win this show. Ever.

                Yeah the camera work and edit was terrible concerning this dance wasn't as speaking as seeing it front row thanks for putting front row on also. So that fans can actually see stuff in it fully.

                      I wonder if nbc knows how much they screwed up taking a whole minute away from this routine? Love everything about it, I’ve watched it about 20 times❤️

                            Now that I see the whole routine, I take back my negative comment in the first uploaded vid with huge cuts. This is line with the song's lyrics...that explains the movements. Now they need to be in the divisional finals and hopefully match their qualifier performance which was pure fire and excitement.

                                  You see, if you had posted the full performance instead of a montage that was falsely labeled as “Full Performance”, then Unity LA would have gotten so much less slander. The performance was actually good, although the end is where they seem the most out of sync and the props hindered them the most there, but the beginning of the performance was actually pretty good. But the thing is, you primarily only showed footage of the end of their performance and it made them look really bad when in reality it wasn’t bad.

                                    Showing the full performance is what the show should be striving towards. If I wanted to see the judge’s reaction clips, that’s where YouTube is for.
                                    I really want to see the Heima’s full performances, with no reaction clip edits in-between

                                      I once did a group dance with umbrellas. While practicing, I fell and broke it. The handle was messed up and everything. We ended up having to get rid of it, the teacher was not pleased. Massive Kudos the them for managing not to do that.

                                        This is true dance, characterized by fluidity instead of cool tricks and flips.

                                              Well now that I've seen the whole routine, I can see how they earned the spot into the divisional final

                                                The lack of sync shows here more than the montage version though.

                                                  I am so so glad I watched the FrontRow of this performance, because it truly shows how excellent this dance was.

                                                      Reggine Velolasquez lmao ok come back when you’re able to manipulate a dance around a cane with perfect isolations & technique. Synchronicity was a bit off but just b/c they didn’t flip over each other 10 times in the routine doesn’t classify the performance as “elementary”, it was far from it. Please pay closer attention to the details

                                                    Seeing the full performance makes sense now. I still liked Radiance more however NBC did this crew a disservice by cutting their routine.

                                                        I thought this wasn’t that exceptional when I saw it on the show. Didn’t realize at the time that they chopped it up like asshats.
                                                        It’s better now that I see the whole thing. Tho it’s still my least favorite of theirs.

                                                            Maybe they cut this because they dropped a thing at 0:46?

                                                              Yeah but it's the cut round. If it were qualifiers it could be more lenient. But this round nah, there's other teams with less flaw should've made it through. I am a fan of them on first routine though.

I really really like the idea behind this piece, and the choreography and performance from the dancers is just top notch. Watching and listening to this routine feels like a big breath of fresh air after watching the other acts.

                                                                        @Lorenzo Mendez ahh! Thanks for clarification. Never would have understood myself. Maybe I found it too abstract to comprehend it. Though, through your views, I watched it again and found it mesmerizing

                                                                      • Lorenzo Mendez

                                                                        Arindam Ghosal the story is basically about the toll dancing takes on dancers and how their bodies wear out after so little time, forcing them to stop their career maybe in their 30s or 40s. The formations and pictures they make with the cane have resemblance to injuries while dancing and how your body wears out after so little time, like how “old age” and walking canes come quicker to dancers since again, all the things they do with their body can cause major problems in the early future if they don’t stop dancing.
                                                                        At the end I know them falling to the down with the cane is them dying, a rough interpretation of the segments before that is that they find the brighter side of things and laugh & enjoy the amazing times they spend on the stage, while simultaneously fighting old age. I mean there are lots of killer old dancers so yeah.

                                                                        The lyrics are also very representative of the things they feel when going through these realizations
                                                                        “This dream isn’t feeling sweet”
                                                                        “Feels so scary getting old”
                                                                        “I want it back” etc.
                                                                        I think “you’re the only friend I need” could somehow link to dance idk, thats what I think

                                                                      • tantzer

                                                                        The lyrics of the song are about the challenges and anxieties involved with getting older. Hence the canes, and the representation of death at the end. The dancers also illustrated the song’s references to going down a stream, a street, loneliness, and friendship at the appropriate moments in the song. Yet Jennifer Lopez complained that the routine was too abstract to grasp.

                                                                      • Justina Jeseviciute

This performance was outstanding and it had such a clear message, but the cut on show lasted 40 seconds and made it look bad. Such a shame, the more I watch, the more it feels like this show is rigged!
