The fifth annual Just Dance World Cup Grand Finals returns March 30th, 2019! Our most prestigious event of the year will take place in the land where it's always a good time to dance, Brazil, in the Webedia Studio! The top seventeen players in the world will battle it out for the title of World Champion with hopes of dethroning the 2-time champion Umutcan Tütüncü, representing Turkey (Rest of World).
Mark your calendar because this will not only be the most exciting competition of the year, but YOU also have a part to play in it. Yes you read that right, we need YOU.
When the competition reached the quarter-finals, a final point might be attributed by online viewers in case there is a draw between 2 competitors. The Twitch vote feature will be available on the official Ubisoft Twitch account. Viewers will be able to vote for their best player by writing the name of the champion of his/her choice on the Twitch chat with an official hashtag (ex. #CompetitorName) during each song. If the match ends in a draw, their vote will be counted, thus your contribution could have a major impact on the election of the future champion of the Just Dance World Cup!
