GRAND FINALS COMPETITION FORMAT
For this final event of the Just Dance World Cup 2019, the competition will follow a double elimination bracket format, meaning contenders will be eliminated after two defeats. In the first phase, each face-off will be based on best game scoring on one single round (best-of-one). The best Just Dancers will then move forward to the Quarter Finals. Starting with these Quarter Finals and up until the Finale, contenders will also face a jury of professionals, whose impressions will be added to game scores.
