A dance crew from the Philippines wowed the judges of “World of Dance,” a dance competition in the US, over their impressive routine of Billie Eilish’s “&Burn” single.

VPeepz, a group made of young dancers aged 11 to 16 years old, were given a 98.7 score out of 100 for their performance last April 14.

The video of the performance was posted on the official Facebook page of World of Dance which made rounds online.

Judges Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo and Derek Hough could be seen on their feet after the group’s dance number to applaud them.

Lopez likened the members to an army, moving in sync that they feel “each other’s energy.”

“It just made us know exactly what was going on. Everything was so clever and perfect,” she said.

Ne-Yo also admired the young Filipino dancers’ showmanship.

“Without a flip, without a trick, without anything… Nobody risked their life, and you got all three of us out of our seats,” he said.

Hough, meanwhile, commented on the “clarity and thoughtfulness” of the choreography.

“You didn’t leave any beat, any moment un-turned. It was so beautiful. You guys nailed it!” he said.

Ne-Yo gave the VPeepz a perfect 100, while Lopez and Hough gave 98 points, thus a cumulative score of 98.7 points.

This made them secure one of the three slots in the final round of their division.

VPeepz is a hip hop crew formed in 2017 with members from different backgrounds aged 21 years old and below.

They were formed by well-known choreographer Chips Beltran.

In 2018, VPeepz was a finalist at the World Hip Hop Dance Championship. In the same year, they also won the championship at Hip Hop International Philippines.
