May 26 marks the season 4 kick off of NBC’s top-rated reality dance competition, ‘World of Dance.’
Calling on world-class movers and shakers to duke it out on the floor for a $1 million prize and title of ‘best dancer in the world,’ look below for the first look at round 4 of Ne-Yo, Jennifer Lopez, and Derek Hough‘s search for the ultimate dance champions.
There are a slew of new twists for this season’s #WOD.
To up the ante, the new season will also feature a few programming twists. At the beginning of the competition, contestants will be under the impression that they’re performing one final audition for a panel of producers. In a surprise qualifiers twist, however, hopeful acts will walk onto the dance floor to learn that The Qualifiers have already begun and the judges are there to see them perform and determine if they have what it takes to make it to the next round.
Other additions include the callback vote, in which the judges will each give a Yes vote, a No vote, or a Callback vote, which will give acts one last chance to perform and earn their spot in the next round; the blind battle, where the judges will now choose in the Duels round which acts go head-to-head (the acts won’t know their opponent until they hit the dance floor); and the revamped Redemption round, where a special surprise guest judge will decide which acts up for elimination will go head-to-head to earn the final slot in the Semi-Final.
