On the Season 2 premiere of World of Dance, two young dancers named Sean Lew & Kaycee Rice of Los Angeles, California wow the crowd and the judges with their performance which started out with the junior couple being blindfolded in the beginning. They perform to the song “Silence” by Marshmello and Khalid.
And when the World of Dance judges find out that Sean is the choreographer, they go nuts. On YouTube, Sean explains what the blindfolds represents. He wrote: “Before creating this piece, Kaycee and I have had some unpleasant experiences in our lives that allowed us to understand how crucial honesty and respect is, when it comes to having the people you love, stick around your life.” He added, “With our blindfolds on, we were unable to realize the pain we were causing each other. The moment our blindfolds came off, we understood how crucial communication is. As long as anything is said with consideration of each other’s feelings, then the truth will bring you closer.”
Sean & Kaycee received a 97 from NeYo; a 96 from Jennifer Lopez; and a 95 from Derek Hough. New episodes of World of Dance air Tuesdays at 10pm on NBC, right after America’s Got Talent.
