The Bulacan-based group FCPC Baliktanaw was voted as the grand winner of World of Dance Philippines 2019. They won the cash prize P2 million and also automatically earned a slot in the qualifiers round of World of Dance US.
FCPC Baliktanaw got an average score of 99.05, beating dance duo Luka and Jena and junior division representative Ken San Jose, who received 96.38 points and 94.93, respectively.
Dancing to a medley of Francis Magalona’s hit songs, FCPC Baliktanaw wowed judges Maja Salvador, Gary Valenciano and Billy Crawford.
Maja noted what she called their “Pinoy swag” while Gary said, “Hanep, hanep talaga!” [Awesome, really awesome!].
As for the group’s mentor, Billy Crawford, he played it cool and said the performance was “OK” and said there’s only one thing he could say, then he let out a gut-wrenching scream of approval.
FCPC Baliktanaw will reportedly donate part of their winnings to charity.
