Les Twins can now add the first World of Dance winners to their impressive résumé that already includes onstage moments with Beyoncé, Missy Elliott and Jay-Z. The title also comes with a $1 million prize.
After months of fierce competition with a talented group of dancers — including the professional Jabbawockeez — twin brothers Laurent Nicolas Bourgeois and Larry Nicolas Bourgeois came out on top.
The unique style of dancing by the YouTube sensations hailing from Sarcelles, France, impressed judges Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo and Derek Hough. 
For the finals performance, they choreographed a routine to a song of their choosing —  Scream by Michael and Janet Jackson — and received a standing ovation from the judges. They also danced to a pick by JLo,  Kygo's Stole the Show.

They narrowly beat out their competition, Eva Igo and Swing Latino, by tenths of a point.
After their name was called, the brothers embraced each other in a shower of confetti.
