After wowing judges and winning hearts on her way to 2nd place in NBC's "World of Dance" last year, Eva Igo made a triumphant return to the show.

The Inver Grove Heights teenager narrowly lost out on a $1 million prize on last year's series, but is now looking to go one better as she competes once again for the prize.

The 15 year old absolutely killed it with her performance, dancing to "I Ran (So Far Away)" by Hidden Citizens.

She got a score of 96 from Ne-Yo, 95 from Jennifer Lopez and a 94 from Derek Hough – easily making it through to the next round.

Check out J.Lo's hilarious reaction to Igo's moves in this clip.

"I am afraid of what we’re going to see this season from you, you’re a beast!" J.Lo told her, according to Hollywood Life.

"You are just a joy to watch. It’s not just because of your flexibility, not because of how technically sound you are. It’s the passion and the energy."

She will surely be a favorite to win the top prize this time, given she lost by just 0.2 points in last year's final.

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.

Here's here performance from Tuesday night.
