The Bloods and the Crips, and the KKK But if you only have love for your own race Then you only leave space to discriminate Man, you gotta have love, this'll set us straight Take control of your mind and meditate Let your soul gravitate to the love, y'all People killin', people dyin' Children hurt and you hear them cryin' Can you practice what you preach?

Where is the love? Where is the love, the love, the love I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder As I'm getting older, y'all people gets colder Most of us only care about money-makin' Selfishness got us followin' the wrong direction Whatever happened to the values of humanity? Whatever happened to the fairness and equality? It's no wonder why sometimes I'm feelin' under Gotta keep my faith alive 'til love is found Father, father, father, help us Send some guidance from above These people got me, got me questionin' Where is the love?

Have you worn heels before? You walked in like you wear them all the time.
What kind of question is that? (SQUEALING) I was checking! Yes, excuse me! I'm here to (BLEEP) win.
Honestly.
My greatest advantage over Molly would be the message of my second song.
It's about the deconstruction of divisions and binaries, and love, more than anything else.
Thank you all! - (DANCERS CLAP) - INSTRUCTOR: Thank you so much, Nico! Crew's comin' in hot.
We came in as a crew.

And I'm glad I don't have to decide who wins this incredible hardware that my partner's holding right here.
Yeah, I got this.
Somebody's parade is definitely gonna get rained on when we find out who gets to take home this fantastic hip gem.
'Cause there can only be one.
Way to crack, much? - It's LSB.
