The five-member dance team Turns became the final winner of Mnet’s “Street Dance Girls Fighter” dance competition on Tuesday, taking home the top honor with 10 million won ($8,350) in prize money.
“Street Dance Girls Fighter,” which premiered in November as a spinoff of the cable network hit “Street Woman Fighter,” captivated viewers by showcasing the dance moves of passionate and talented high school students.
The six finalists – Newnion, Floor, Mismolly, Turns, Brand New Child and KLWC – delivered their final performances. The winner was determined by the viewers’ live voting scores (40%), scores from previous missions (30%), and average scores from the judges in the first and second rounds of the final day (30%).
For the first round of their final performances, each team performed a newly produced song. Newnion and Floor performed for Itzy’s “Weapon,” while Mismolly and Turns showed off their powerful moves for Mamamoo’s Solar and Moonbyul’s “Bada Boom.” KLWC and Brand New Child performed on Jeon So-yeon’s “Fire”. The finalists took turns and freely showed their creative and splendid performances to what they had prepared for the second round.

“We’ll show more fresh and uplifting performances later,” Turns frontman Jo Na-in said after winning the competition. She also thanked the YGX mentor team for their heartfelt comments, which motivated the dance team to show off different performance styles during the show.
All six episodes of “Street Dance Girls Fighter” ended with a nationwide record viewership rating of 2.3%, according to Nielsen Korea on Wednesday. The show’s first episode scored 1.9% viewership, according to the data.
