NBC Unveils World of Dance Season 3 Art

Also known as promo materials for the new season. ๐Ÿ™‚ Go to Hollywood Life to see the new, gorgeous art work and read about the new season. I’ve put a short excerpt below.

But season 3 is taking the competition to a whole new level. The score to get from The Qualifiers to The Duels is getting raised from an 80 to an 85. In The Duels, the judges added whatโ€™s called the Redemptions, where the two highest-scoring acts that did not win their head-to-head routine get one last chance to compete for a spot in The Cut. These changes are key, right?!

โ€œThis new season has some jaw-dropping performances and weโ€™re seeing acts do stunts and moves that weโ€™ve never seen before,โ€ Jennifer said in a statement. โ€œIโ€™m excited that weโ€™re giving these gifted dancers and athletes an opportunity and platform to shine as brightly as they deserve, for an unparalleled third season in a row!โ€

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Parade Magazine Introduces World of Dance Season 3 Contestants!!

This is a nice article which introduces 15 of the 54 acts that will be competing on the upcoming season. I’ve put a short excerpt below, but click the link to read the whole article in Parade. Most of us will recognize this first group – every season they’ve had people competing on the show.

Dancetown Divas

Hometown: Miami, FL
Members: 15
Ages: 12-15
Style: Ballroom
Division: Junior Team
Bio: The Dancetown Divas, put together by choreographer Manny Castro, originate from the same Miami dance studio as World of Dance alumni Miami All-Stars and Dโ€™Angelo & Amanda from Season 1 and Jonas & Ruby and The Untouchables from Season 2. Individually, these girls have accomplished a lot, and theyโ€™re looking to prove that they belong on the big stage.

Derion & Madison

Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
Members: 2
Ages: 23-28
Style: Contemporary
Division: Upper
Bio: This duo of extremely athletic dancers are known for doing the unexpected in their self-choreographed dance routines. They met while touring with Diavolo and instantly became fast friends, describing themselves as โ€œtwins separated at birth.โ€ Their unique style, technique and ability to pull off the impossible, all while making it look easy, makes them a force to be reckoned with.

And the New ‘World of Dance’ Host is…..

Scott Evans, according to Derek Hough!! Not sure what he has to do with dance…and he’s going to have his work cut out for him, replacing Jenna Dewan.

“World of Dance” Season 2 First Promo And More Show Details

The first World Of Dance Season 2 teaser!! You can watch it below. Also below are more details from Entertainment Weekly. Be sure to read the link for more.

The series, which features judges Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, and Derek Hough, as well as host/mentor Jenna Dewan Tatum, is set to return to NBC on Tuesday, May 29, and the winning dancers once again will take home a $1 million prize. Of course, there may be a few more hoops this time around as well.

The new season will include 16 episodes โ€” as opposed to the 10 from its freshman outing โ€” and the hand-picked dancers will compete in four divisions instead of last yearโ€™s three. They are: Junior (17 years old and under, 1-4 dancers), Junior Team (17 years old and under, 5-15 dancers), Upper (18 years old and older, 1-4 dancers), and Upper Team ((18 years old and older, 5-15 dancers). In other words, expect a bunch more insanely talented kids vying for the big bucks.
