Jennifer Lopez is adding yet another show to her résumé.
The entertainer is teaming up with NBC for a 10-episode dance competition series called ‘World of Dance,’ in which the winner will win $1 million.
In partnership with global dance brand World of Dance, the series brings the world’s elite dancers together to compete in epic battles of artistry, precision and athleticism. Solo dancers will compete against duos and crews in an unlimited range of dance, including hip-hop, krumping, popping, locking, tap, ballet, break dancing, ballroom, clogging, stomping and more.
Handpicked from qualifying events around the country and thousands of online submissions, competitors are divided into three divisions: junior (any size act under 16 years old), upper (groups of 1-4, over 16 years of age) and team (groups of five or more, over 16 years). After an initial audition round, divisions face off in duels until only one of each is left standing.
A panel of yet-to-be-named experts will score the acts using a precise point system developed by World of Dance, using the following criteria: routine, execution, presentation, and crowd appeal. The epic finale sees the winners from each division will compete for $1 million and the title of “Best in the World.”

Lopez will exec produce along with Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Benny Medina, Kris Curry, Matilda Zoltowski, David Gonzalez, Matthew Everitt and Al Hassas. Universal Television Alternative Studios will produce in association with Lopez’s Nuyorican Productions banner.
“This will be a fierce talent-heavy dance competition that embraces the raw emotion and excitement that dance represents,” Lopez said in a statement. “I am excited to work with World of Dance, an organization that has had an immeasurable impact on the dance community, to give all dancers an enormous platform where their dreams can be realized.”
