This week on “World of Dance” things are getting intense with the Cut Round where 15 dancers will fill only six spots in the finals – two from each group of juniors, teens, and adults.
Each of the judges took one group of dancers to mentor and this week prima ballerina Misty Copeland is a guest judge.
Up first are the juniors who were mentored by Jennifer Lopez.
Eleven year old Diana Plombo takes the stage first who dances to Rihanna. Jennifer said that she did a beautiful job. Derek said that she had so much passion and emotion.

The Mihacevich Sister used a sofa prop for their dance. Calling it their best performance, Derek said that the girls moved them with their emotional dance. Misty said that the dance felt original and real; adding that it was powerful and clean. Jennifer said that they brought it to the next level. The grils scored 85.5 points for their dance knocking out Immabeast.
The 10 member crew The Lab chose “Disco Inferno” by 50 Cent for their routine. Ne-Yo loved it; adding that they were one of the cleanest groups on the show. Calling the dance super clean, Jennifer said that they were overtaken by the energy. Misty loved the performance. The group earned a score of 86 points knocking out the Mihacevich Sisters.
