World of Dance is hosted by Jenna Dewan and produced by Jennifer Lopez. The show features dancers– both solo acts and large groups– who compete against one another for a grand prize of $1 million. The show was renewed for a third season in May 2018.
World of Dance is judged by Derek Hough, Jennifer Lopez, and Ne-Yo, who come together and decide if the auditioners have what it takes to advance to the next round. The show works like this: the acts need to score an 80 or above in order to advance to the Duels. In the premiere episode, the Desi Hoppers, hip-hop dancers from Mumbai, India, scored an impressive 96 and clearly made it through to the next round.
Sean and Kaycee also earned a 96, and will be joined by S-Rank, Jaxon Willard, FLIP, and Karen y Ricardo in the Duels.
One of the couples who popped last week was the young duo of Charity and Andres. The two are just 18, but have been dancing together since they were eight years old. Speaking to Hollywood Life recently, Andres said, “When I saw that call for auditions last summer, I knew we needed to enter.” The pair received a standing ovation from the judges last week after performing a dance to James Arthur’s “Say You Won’t Let Go.”
World of Dance airs Tuesdays on NBC at 10pm ET/PT.
