Vietnam’s famous dance crew ST.319 won first place with a powerful, eye-catching video that got over 320,000 views on YouTube. Second place went to Vietnam’s seven-member female band OOPS! Crew, whose video drew praise from the public. The K-Boys, representing Thailand, placed third with a performance that just about perfectly replicated the original.
