World Of Dance: 6 Things To Know
World of Dance is the newest reality dance competition on TV, and it’s packed with A-list talent. The judges include Ne-Yo, Jennifer Lopez and Derek Hough, with Jenna Dewan-Tatum as the host. It’s being touted as the next big thing, so here are 6 things that you need to know about NBC’s new hit show:
6. Time Slot Switch
World of Dance was supposed to be a lead in for The Voice; however, when NBC pushed the premiere date back from March 31, 2017 to May 8, 2017, it became a lead out for the season premiere of America’s Got Talent instead. As of June 2017, NBC renewed the series for a second season.
5. Jennifer Lopez’s Involvement
Jennifer Lopez initially signed on as a producer and then as a judge. She felt that the series would be a return to her roots, as she initially began her career as a member of the Fly Girls, the house crew of the Fox comedy series In Living Color. World of Dance reminded her “of all the reasons why [she loved] dance and why [she] wanted to do this in the first place,” which she is why she signed up.
