‘World of Dance’ is a reality competition show that follows solo and group dance performers battling it out to win a grand prize of $1 million. The series originally debuted on NBC in May 2017. With its star-studded judging panel and teams of some of the most exceptional dancers, the show, since its launch, has spanned three extremely successful seasons. Not to mention, it has also won an Emmy and has spawned multiple international adaptations. Hence, we were not surprised when we heard that the competition has received its order for a fourth outing as well.
World of Dance Season 4 Release Date
‘World of Dance’ season 3 premiered on February 26, 2019, on NBC. It ended with its 11th episode on May 5, 2019. Owing to strong ratings and positive reviews from viewers, on May 11, 2019, NBC renewed the show for its fourth season. ‘World of Dance’ season 4 will release on May 26, 2020, at 10/9c.
World of Dance Season 4 Host, Judges, and Contestants
Season 4 sees the return of Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, and Derek Hough as the judges. Even Scott Evans makes a comeback as the host. Season 4 features another new team of talented, exceptionally world-class competitors. Some of the notable participants from the upcoming outing include a 15-year-old World Ballet Competition gold medalist named Maddy Penney, a Fusion Dance crew from Japan named Chibi Unity, two-time Salsa World Champions, a couple named Jefferson y Adrianita, and World Hip Hop Dance Championship gold medalists UPeepz. We are quite excited to see who will top the contest this time, following the win of Kings United in season 3.
What Can World of Dance Season 4 be About?
The reality competition features a group of solo, as well as, group dance performers, who excel in their respective style of dance. They compete for the grand prize of $1 million after being scored by the panel of judges. Across the seasons, the format has essentially remained the same, with few tweaks introduced in the structure in each outing. In season 4, we will witness some more changes to the programming. At the start of the contest, the candidates will be given the impression that they are performing one last audition before the producers. However, here is the surprise twist. The hopefuls will enter the stage to see that the qualifiers have already started. In this round itself, the judges will score their acts and decide if they can proceed to the next round.
In yet another tweak, there will also be a callback vote. Here, the judging panel will either give a ‘callback’, ‘yes’ or ‘no’ vote. In the first option, the judges give the performers one last chance to prove themselves — so that they can go to the next round. We will also get the blind battle, where the judges will score the contestants based on the duels round — in which the candidates will know their opponents only on the dance floor. Finally, there will be a redemption round, where a guest judge will decide who will be a part of the semifinals.
