Earlier this week I was able to attend the NBC Summer Press Day where we got to preview the new show "World of Dance" - and it looks AMAZING!! I kid you not the preview had me smiling and crying at the same time! After the preview we got to ask questions to the panel which included Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, Derek Hough, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Benny Medina and two other producers!
While I was there I wanted to know how these dancers inspired the judges (which are Jennifer. Ne-Yo and Derek)
This is what Jennifer said...
I've got to tell you, there were some people that we knew who are in the competition. We know their names. We know them from the dance world. And then there were some people, some juniors that we had or groups that came from New Zealand or whatever, where we were, like, "What the hell. Who are these people? Where did they come from?" Blow your mind. Blow your mind. I mean, honestly, it was -- we even had questions about how does a junior compete against a group of adults? Do you know what I mean? How is this all going to work? And, honestly, it just comes down to performances that blow you away.
I was so blessed to be able to attend the event!! And of course I freaked out when Jennifer said "Hi" to me! I mean look at her - she is LIFE!!!
