Dance queen Jennifer Lopez was on “The Today Show” earlier this week discussing her prime time NBC show. And if you’re thinking “Oh, I already know her hit show ‘Shades of Blue’ that’s been renewed for a third season” then you’re wrong, because she now has TWO prime time NBC shows. She is executive producing and will be a judge in a brand new competition show called “World of Dance.” From the snippet showed in her interview on “Today,” it looks like “World of Dance” will be a mix between “So You Think You Can Dance” and “American Idol.”
J.Lo shared this great moment with a young contestant from her new show “World Of Dance.”
After bravely performing in front of a live studio audience, this young girl tells J.Lo she’s her biggest idol and J.Lo runs out to meet her with a big hug, lifting her off the floor and telling her how wonderful she is. It’s enough to make you cry.
The “Today” interviewers also brought up the Met Gala, where J.Lo made her first official red carpet debut with new beau Alex Rodriguez.
J.Lo says they had a great time, that the Gala was awesome and finally reveals that they even danced.
When asked if A.Rod is a good dancer, she hesitates for a moment, which they all take as a sign that he isn’t.
The interviewers jump on that moment, pointing and laughing and saying “he can’t dance?!” They share a good laugh and in J.Lo fashion, she eventually comes back to defend her boo, saying “He dances merengue. He dances all the important stuff for me. When the Spanish music comes on…” she seems to be rambling a bit, when one of the interviewers interjects “So he knows what he’s doing?” to which J.Lo replies emphatically “Yes!” and seems relieved to leave it at that.
To promote the show, J.Lo and the other judges started a dance challenge for viewers to submit videos to be compiled and shown on air.
It’s simple, all you’ve gotta do is a complicated series of dance moves to J.Lo’s song and send it. Okay, so maybe it’s not that simple, but I’m sure people are going to come up with some creative stuff, people love challenges like this.
We can’t wait to see her new show. It looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun.
Get it! I’m already dancing in my seat. 💃🕺
