Jennifer Lopez Sizzles in Skin-Tight Silver Sequins While Promoting World of Dance

Posted on

 

Jennifer Lopez’s dance reality competition World of Dance is set to premiere May 30, and PEOPLE can exclusively reveal new footage of the show’s judges dishing on why they think their series will be the show of the summer.

The 47 elite dance acts will be divided into groups Junior Division, Upper Division and Team Division, and will compete for the title “Best in the World” judged by, well, some of the best performers in the world including Lopez, Dancing with the Stars pro Derek Hough, R&B singer Ne-Yo with actress-dancer Jenna Dewan Tatum hosting.

With an already impressive resume under their belt, many of the groups have hit stardom level having worked with some of music’s biggest legends, such as group The Lab performing with Justin Bieber and Keone & Mari choreographing one of the pop star’s music videos, Parisian-born twin brothers Les Twins performing on stage alongside Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Missy Elliott, and the JabbaWockeeZ, who have amassed large success with their Las Vegas residency shows.
