D’Angelo and Amanda claimed the $500,000 grand prize on the big finale of Paula Abdul‘s CBS dance competition Live to Dance Wednesday night.
The talented tween dance duo, dubbed “technical geniuses” by Abdul, was announced the winner as fireworks erupted on stage. Adding to their moment of glory, the judges hoisted them onto their shoulders.
Finishing second was solo dancer Kendall Glover, while a duo called White Tree Fine Art claimed third.
The show marked the return to prime time TV for Abdul, who left her chair on American Idol in August 2009 after reportedly rejecting an eight-figure deal Fox was offering to retain her services.
