Jennifer Lopez used her considerable talent (and sometimes considerable patience) to help vocal hopefuls during several seasons of American Idol. Now she’s back in the judge’s chair to help people bust a move!

J.Lo will serve as a judge, mentor and executive producer of NBC’s upcoming competition series, World of Dance. The 10-episode program will give dancers the chance to show off their talents while competing for a $1 million grand prize.

World of Dance promises to bring the highest caliber of performers, culled from rigorous auditions and qualifying events that took place across the country. Viewers will see a wide variety of styles, including hip-hop, krumping, popping, locking, tap, ballet, break dancing, ballroom, clogging, stomping and more. Divided into three age divisions, these movers and shakers will go head to head to compete for the crash, and the “Best in the World” title.

“I identify with the struggles, passion, discipline, competition and exhilaration of dance,” Lopez said in a statement. “I am excited that with this show we can skyrocket a dancer’s career and help guide them to success.”
