What is World of Dance About?
The reality series has been created in collaboration with the eponymous dance brand, which is the largest dance entertainment enterprise in the world. The show aims to put the local artists into the international radar by offering them a chance to showcase their mesmerizing moves. It features artists who perform their best routine as a solo act, duel, or group act in the Qualifiers, which is held in a warehouse in the absence of a live audience.
Once the performers earn majority “Yeses” from the judges, the contestants move to the Duels round. Starting in season 4, the judges have the right to exercise the callback vote and give a few contestants, a second chance to advance to the Duels. The judges pick the opponents in the Duels round and a guest judge bags the power to choose the rival dance performer/performers in the Redemption Duels.
In the Cut, the mentors train the contestants for the performance that reserves a few of them, a seat in the Divisional Final. The top acts from all the divisions proceed to the World Final, along with a wild card act. In the finale, the best of the lot gets crowned the World of Dance Champion and takes home a cash prize of $1 million. As it’s a reality show, all the seasons will more or less follow the same format.
