The Twins, Winners of the American Show World of Dance
They dazzled the judges and the public in their last performance. At 28 years old, Les Twins, Larry and Laurent Bourgeois, originally from Guadeloupe, won the American show World of dance, a TV contest, produced by Jennifer Lopez. They’re taking in a million dollars.
They’re Living Their American Dream
Since Tuesday, and their victory at World Of dance, an American television dance contest for NBC, the Twins are on the roof of the world…
The Kings of World of Dance
After a few days of vacation back home for Larry last June, the Twins embarked on the final stages of the show. Already winners of the Just Stand Up contest, an annual hip hop Dance Competition held in Paris in 2011, the boys were keen to take on new challenges.
Over the weeks, they managed to impose their style, conquering the hearts of the Americans and Jennifer Lopez, judge, and producer of the show. Also stunned were the other two judges, singer and dancer Ne-Yo, and Derek Hough, one of the star dancers on Dancing With The Stars.
At the finals, they chose to dance to the song Scream by Michael and Janet Jackson, simply amazing performance.
For the title imposed by the judges, the song Stole the show by Kygo, like a warning, the impressive Twins of Master, boldness, and madness broke the House.
Two benefits that enabled them to win the sweet sum of one million dollars.
An Inimitable Style
It is an extraordinary adventure that the two 28-year-old brothers are experiencing. Born in Sarcelles, in the Paris region, to parents from Guadeloupe, in a family of 9 children, the twins turn to dance and more specifically hip hop, observing the dancers they meet… They are also interested in ballet, which influences their choreography.
They practice New style, a branch of hip hop, a common trend that they master and to which they bring their touch.
Alicia Keys, then Beyonce, through Michael Jackson.
After having conquered the heart of the West Indies and France, they launched an assault on the United States, with increasing success.
In 2008, Laurent and Larry Bourgeois were involved in the issuance France has an incredible talent”. They finish in 6th place, but it’s already the beginning of their new life. Sometime later, Alicia Keys, singer of soul and R&b, locates them, while they dance on the Champs Elysées. She invites them to dance on stage at one of her concerts at the Zenith.
There followed an appearance on the famous show The Ellen Degeneres Show, featuring Missy Elliott, and The King of pop, Michael Jackson, on his 2011 Cirque du Soleil tour, shortly before his death.
The videos of their performance will become viral… One of them falls into the hands of Beyonce himself. Impressed, the singer hires them on two of her tours the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in 2013 and the On the Run Tour in 2014. Consecrations for the two brothers who intend not to stop there.
The Adventure Continues
The Twins are the new ambassadors of the Jordan Brand, the legendary basketball player Michael Jordan. They now perfectly personify the American expression “Sky’s the limit” (there are no limits)… It is safe; we have not yet heard of The Twins Duo.
