First to perform was the septet Y.O.U from the Philippines. The girls performed a mixed version of IOI's ''Very Very Very'' and ''Whatta Man''. Second up was the Korean male septet Over Fest, who put on a powerful performance of BTS' ''Blood, Sweat & Tears''. The Russian septet X.East also covered a track by BTS and showed off their dance skills to ''Not Today''. Last to go on the final stage was the co-ed quintet The First Bite from the United States. The group perfected the sexy choreography of Brave Girls' ''Rollin''.


Out of the four final groups, X.East was the one to take the victory at this year's festival. Second place went to Y.O.U while The First Bite took third. 


At the end, judge Seulgi shared a comment, and said, "They were probably very nervous but I was surprised that they showed professionalism not only with their dance moves but also with their facial expressions." Russia team got awarded as Twitter Popular Choice Award this year. You can watch the final groups' amazing performances at '2017 K-Pop Cover Dance Festival' in the video above.
