World Of Dance (NBC) – Premieres 30th May
Dance competition where judges Derek Hough, Ne-Yo and Jennifer Lopez are given the take to find the best dance act in America, where the winner gets $1million.
The dancers are split into three groups, Junior (for the under 18s), Upper (for up to four dancers over 18) & Team (for 5 or more dancers over 18). As they each dance for the judges they qualify for the next round if their performance gets an average score of 80 or over. The scores are calculated by being scored in 5 categories (performance, technique, choreography, creativity and presentation), and each category has the max score of 20.
The show itself is typical of any other talent show that’s on, where they show the acts backstage, they have their acts appraised at the end of the performance, and if there’s any chance of an emotional backstory Disney-esque orchestral music will appear from nowhere.
It’s the usual run-of-the-mill gumpf.
