J. Lo Wants You to Take the #WorldOfDanceChallenge
The long, looooong countdown to the premiere of NBC's "World of Dance" is almost over, friends: Just 20 more sleeps until May 30, when we get to see its sure-to-be-fabulousness.

Watch the show to see if your clip makes the master compilation video. Enjoy 15 minutes of social media fame/a lifetime of bragging rights if it does.
Here's the official instruction video:

It's usually right around the third or fourth week of "So You Think You Can Dance" audition rounds that we start itching for the live shows. Sure, the auditions are fun, inspiring, and entertaining, but at a certain point, we reach audition saturation. (And the live shows are just so good and feature so much more Cat Deeley.)
All that said, Nigel and co. kept things spicy this week, so our attention remained firmly glued to the screen. (It's been 16 seasons—who are we to doubt Nigel Lythgoe, sir?) Here's how it all went down.
