Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Scott Evans (Season 3) and Jenna Dewan Tatum (Seasons 1 & 2), WORLD OF DANCE is a dance competition series where the winner receives a life-altering grand prize of $1 million, with these three judges: NE-YO, Derek Hough, and executive producer Jennifer Lopez. The series brings the world's elite dancers together to compete in epic battles of artistry, precision and athleticism. Solo artists will compete against duos and crews in an unlimited range of dance, including hip hop, krumping, popping, locking, tap, ballet, break dancing, ballroom, clogging, stomping and more. Handpicked from qualifying events around the nation and thousands of online submissions, competitors are divided into three divisions: Junior (any size act under 16 years old), Upper (groups of 1-4, over 16 years) and Team (groups of 5+, over 16 years). After an initial audition round, divisions face off in duels, until only one of each is left standing. A panel of experts score the acts using a precise point system developed by World of Dance, using the following criteria: Routine, Execution, Presentation, and Crowd Appeal. The finale sees the winners from each division duke it out for $1 million and the title "Best in the World."

NBC premiered Season 2 of WORLD OF DANCE on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 from 10-11pm ET/PT.

In "The Qualifiers Round 1," the world's most elite dance acts from all ages and dance genres enter the World of Dance arena to face off in the challenge of a lifetime. The acts have one chance to showcase their artistry, precision and athleticism in order to move forward in the competition and ultimately win a grand prize of $1 million dollars.
