Season 3 of NBC World of Dance premiered last night, and is gearing up to be the most epic season yet. Featuring celebrity judges Derek Hough, Ne-Yo, and Jennifer Lopez scoring performances in the first round of the competition, The Qualifiers, the competition is on. 

Last night we also met our new host, Sean Evans and we can’t wait to see him on the rest of the season! 

New this season: In order to advance to The Duels, performances needed to have a combined score of 85.  This means that contestants that made it through the qualifying round in previous seasons, wouldn’t have made it this time.
