The Mumbai-based dance group, The Kings made India proud when they delivered a hair-raising performance at the World of Dance 2019. The dance group, who pulled off an imposing hip hop performance to the tune of AR Rahman's Dhakka Laga Bukka from the movie Yuva took Indian talent to the global platform as the whole audience beat off their dancing legs while the judges couldn't help but be up on their feet. While shoe throwing is generally regarded as something very unfortunate, for this dance group, judges removing their shoes was because of a completely different reason.
