The heat is on! K.O.D. makes its way back to the U.S.A this time for the World Cup Finals. What will start as a quarter-final (top 8) matchup on Wednesday at Shrine Expo Hal will then go to a Semi-Final (Top 4) at Avalon Hollywood then the Finals commence at the Honda Center in Anaheim. A freestyle street dance competition of such large scale and multiple days has not been very frequent in the U.S. especially with multiple street styles.
Teams from the USA, China, Russia, France, Canada, Germany, Japan, and Korea will compete against each other in Breaking, Locking, Hip Hop, and Popping. Finals at the Honda Center will be live streamed and include performances from Busta Rhymes, WC, Fingazz, MC Jin, and Just Blaze while the dancers will compete for the $100,000 prize.
Here’s some previews of what to expect:
