Despite having the best performance of the night, Eva Igo missed out on a $1 million prize on World of Dance by the barest of margins.
The 14-year-old from Inver Grove Heights has taken the first season of the NBC series by storm with her acrobatic, elastic performances, but she lost out on the grand prize by 0.2 points Tuesday night.
Her first performance, to "In The Air Tonight," saw her receive a judges score of 91, the lowest of the three finalists.
But then she brought the house down with an incredible routine to Sia's "Alive," which had judge Derek Hough jumping out of his seat and saw her given a 96.7 score – comfortably the highest of the night.
Here's a video of the two performances.
Unfortunately it wasn't enough to beat dance duo Les Twins, whose average score over the two routines of 93.8 was just ahead of Igo on 93.6.
After the show, which was pre-taped, aired, Igo posted a message to her new-found fanbase on Instagram.
"This journey has been worth far more than any amount of money, every moment was completely surreal," she said.
"Special thanks to Derek Hough for all the love and words of encouragement! This most definitely is NOT the end."
The teenager was asked to audition for the NBC series after World of Dance showrunners saw videos of her dancing on her Instagram account.
She trains at the Larkin Dance Studio in Maplewood, which paid tribute to her performances on the show on its Facebook page.
She had previously said that if she won the competition, she'd use the $1 million to "pay for my own dance, which is expensive."
While second place doesn't come with a seven-figure prize, it's doubtful she'll be short of lucrative offers for too long.
