Proudly presented by Magnum and organized by Mega Ultimate, one of the most anticipated Kpop Dance Cover Competitions in Malaysia – K’Storm VOL. 2 Kpop Dance Cover Competition Grand Final has completed successfully on 17th December 2016, 7pm, at Mega Star Arena! A total of 15 groups have competed with each other for the title of Champion during the grand final after going through the state selection rounds.
The organizers and judges travelled across several states in Malaysia to gather all Kpop dance lovers to join the competition and encourage youngsters to participate in this dance competition. The journey to the Grand Final consisted of 4 stages: Registration & Video Submission, Stage Audition (Preliminary 1), Finalists Selection (Preliminary 2) and the Grand Finale. In addition, the organizer had arranged a special workshop for all the finalists with the aim of giving them an opportunity to experience being a Korean dance trainee, pick up additional knowledge from the International Judges and interact and cultivate good relations amongst other group members that were also in the finals.
The contestants were judged based on the following judging criteria: Kpop identity, Dance Cover, Synchronization, Creativity and Popularity. The organizers gathered experienced judges for Vol. 2 of the competition, namely; Dayana Anith (Epsilon), Joel Tee (Progression Dance Crew), Sean Lee (Fuxion Dance Crew) and Haelim (Des Crew from Singapore). This year, the organizer had also invited a famous dance choreographer from Korea to be the special judge, Kasper, who has worked with Korean artists like EXO!
The grand opening event started with a stunning performance by the judges and followed with the performance by K’Storm Vol.1 Champion – Mad.G. The show also had a special segment whereby children between the ages of 5-12 who participated in the competition but were not selected to enter the finals were invited to give a special performance at the Grand Finals. All performances were fantastic! After an intense battle amongst the Grand Finalists, the Champion of K’Storm Vol. 2 Kpop Dance Cover Competition finally emerged.
