Watch “tutting” dancers Géométrie Variable perform to “Habits” by Tove Lo during the World of Dance Qualifiers.
Judge Jennifer Lopez notes the intensity of the routine, which features super controlled and precise movements. Ne-Yo calls it “cinematic” and “entertaining.” The judges are so fascinated with the minute, controlled, angular movements, that Derek Hough suggests the trio give them a dance lesson. The judges mirror the choreography perfectly. But the question is, could they keep it up for a full routine! It would be challenging.
Ne-Yo jokes that he felt like he did a “really hard math test.” Jennifer felt that the song came through in the movement. And that although the moves were very linear, there was still a lot of emotion behind it. Derek compliments the trio for creating an entire dance routine around creating shapes. He had never seen anything like it before.
World of Dance airs on NBC Tuesday June 16 after America’s Got Talent at 10 pm ET/PT
