Dancing kween Jennifer Lopez is preparing us for the second season of "World of Dance" by dropping an insane World of Dance promo that has her slaying the dance floor like we've never seen before. If America wasn't on the edge of their seats for the May 29th premiere they are now—wondering how the contestants of "World of Dance" could possibly outdo such a performance—but there's no doubt they will. This season's roster of dancers really takes the show's name to heart cause it's out of this world, with each dancer as ferociously talented as the rest! (We don't envy J. Lo's job of having to pick just one.) We've rounded up 7 young dancers you won't want to miss.
Last night was both the best and the worst night of "Dancing with the Stars: Athletes." The best, because one lean, mean, dancing machine of a couple got to take home the Mirrorball trophy. The worst, because we won't be able to tune in to "DWTS" each Monday to get our weekly dose of dance mania until the fall. But all good things must come to an end, and "DWTS: Athletes" was certainly one of the best seasons yet. The remaining three couples all brought their A-games to the dance floor for the finale, showcasing two dances: a traditional ballroom routine and a freestyle. Here's the final recap.
When Janet Jackson puts out a call for new dancers, basically the ENTIRE WORLD responds. More than 75,000 people entered Jackson's epic #DanceWithJanet contest, announced earlier this spring, which let hopefuls from around the globe audition via social media for a chance to perform with the icon.
So, out of those tens of thousands, who became the newest members of the #JTribe? Meet Phillip Galbert and L'Vala "Lala" Moss, the winners of the competition. Last night, they joined Janet onstage at the Billboard Music Awards. And they more than earned their place in the spotlight.
Last May, we told you about a special exhibition of the Mark Ryden artwork that sparked Alexei Ratmansky's sweet-treat of a ballet, Whipped Cream. Well, hold on to your tiaras, bunheads, because there's a brand-new exhibit featuring actual costumes from this megahit production. The Nutcracker's Land of Sweets has some serious competition!
Well, this has certainly been an efficient season of "Dancing with the Stars." It seems like only yesterday (because it basically was) that we were freaking out over the new cast, daydreaming about routines for Adam Rippon, and recapping the premiere. Yet here we are—Week 3, the penultimate episode, the second-to-last chance to live in a world filled with glitter, fringe, and sequins for one glorious hour. There was some great dancing, and there were some gnarly eliminations. Without further ado, let's RECAP!
Wanna hear something mind-blowing? Last night marked the second week of the latest "Dancing with the Stars: Athletes." That means we're already HALF WAY through Season 26.
Let that sink in.
This means we get only a few more weeks to watch Adam Rippon absolutely slay on the dance floor (which he did again last night). 😭 (We're not ok, either.) Things are moving fast around here, people! So fast that another TWO couples were eliminated last night. But we'll get to that later.
