The motivation was high as the star competitors on NBC‘s World of Dance took their talent to the big stage in hopes of snagging a securing score that would guarantee their advance. While each dance was shown to be more diverse than the prior, one duo had fans jumping out of their seat with their modern take on a timeless classic.
Dancing to Frank Sinatra‘s unforgettable ballad “The Way You Look Tonight”, partners Keone and Mari revamped the typical slow dance that has formerly embodied the melody. Instead, the two showcased a series of modern moves and incredibly fast-paced steps that added an updated punch to the 1961 song.
While Mari channeled an Audrey Hepburn glow, complete with her iconic chignon and tiara, Keone was a vision of handsome allure as he rocked his vintage attire and smooth hat.
Despite their stunning choreography and compelling story, the duo did not advance to the World Final. However, fans continued to fall helplessly in love with the dance that stole their hearts and, perhaps in the opinion of some, the show.
