Looks like Jennifer Lopez will be making her return to the judge’s chair very soon. NBC announced on Wednesday, that the former American Idol judge has signed on to mentor and judge contestants on its new competitive dance series, World of Dance.
The series will run for 10-episode and will bring top dancers from around the world together to show off their incredible skills and to bust a move. Solo dancers will compete against duos and crews in an unlimited range of dance, including hip hop, ballet, ballroom, krumping, and a whole lot more.
Lopez’s company Nuyorican Productions is producing World of Dance with Universal Television Alternative Studio. In a recent press release, she had this to say:
The World of Dance competitors, who were selected from qualifying events and online submissions, will be divided into three divisions: Junior (any size act under 16 years old), Upper (groups of 1- 4, over 16 years) and Team (groups of 5 or more, over 16 years). Developed by the dance brand World of Dance, the judges’ scoring system will evaluate competitors on their routine, execution, presentation, and crowd appeal. Winners will take home a $1 million prize and the title of “Best in the World,” according to NBC.
We can’t wait either! Jennifer will forever be our favorite Fly Girl.
