World of Dance will be revealing the 34 acts vying for the one million dollar prize, season 4 premieres Tuesday, May 26th at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Tune in for surprise twists and higher stakes.

World of Dance is led by a judging team of exceptional dance superstars — Jennifer Lopez (who also serves as an executive producer), Derek Hough, and NE-YO, with Scott Evans as host.

“I can’t wait for everyone to see what we’ve been up to this season on ‘World of Dance,’” said Derek Hough. “We’ve made some thrilling new updates to the format and I think it’s going to make for one of our best seasons yet.  The energy of the show and the passion of the contestants bleeds through the screen.”

To up the ante and add an element of surprise for Season 4, World of Dance has implemented the following programming changes:

  • Qualifier Twist – To begin the season, contestants are under the impression that they’re performing one final audition for a panel of producers, in a surprise twist however, hopeful acts will walk onto the dance floor to realize that The Qualifiers have already begun and our “World of Dance” judges are there to see them perform and determine if they have what it takes to make it to the next round. 
  • Callback Vote – The judges will each give a Yes vote, a No vote, or a Callback vote, which will give acts one last chance to perform and earn their spot in the next round.
  • Blind Battle – For the Duels round, the judges will now choose which acts go head-to-head and the acts won’t know their opponent until they hit the dance floor, creating epic dance battles leading to some of the most intense performances the series has ever seen.
  • Redemption Round Revamped – This season’s redemption will be decided by a special surprise guest judge who will choose which two acts up for elimination will go head-to-head to earn the final slot in the Semi-Final.
