During Week 7 of qualifiers on Season 2 of World of Dance, judges Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough and Ne-Yo are treated to a performance by The Jam Project. The six-man troupe of tap dancers from Washington, D.C. dance to the rocking 1970 Chicago song “25 or 6 to 4.” (See music link below.) According to the songwriter of the song, Chicago founding member Robert Lamm, “25 or 6 to 4” is about him trying to write a song in the middle of the night. A rumor spread around the world that the song was about drugs which got the song banned in Singapore. The ban was lifted 23 years later in 1993. Lamm also wrote the Chicago hit, “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?”, which is on the same album. See below.
Back to the dance! World of Dance judge Derek Hough is the most accomplished tap dancer on the panel and during The Jam Project’s performance, he yelled out a number of times “Nice!”. New episodes of World of Dance air Tuesdays at 10pm on NBC, right after America’s Got Talent.
