(from NBC's press release, March 2017) In partnership with preeminent global dance brand World of Dance, the series brings the world's elite dancers together to compete in epic battles of artistry, precision and athleticism for a life-altering prize of $1 million. Solo dancers will compete against duos and crews in an unlimited range of dance including hip-hop, popping, locking, tap, ballet, break dancing, ballroom, stomping and more. Jennifer Lopez, NE-YO and Derek Hough will be at the judges table with Jenna Dewan Tatum set as host/mentor. Handpicked from qualifying events around the nation and thousands of online submissions, competitors are divided into three divisions: Junior (any size act, 17 years old and under), Upper (groups of 1- 4, 18 and older) and Team (groups of 5+, 18 and older). Our panel of experts score the acts using a precise point system developed by World of Dance, using the following criteria: Performance, Technique, Choreography, Creativity and Presentation. The competition consists of five rounds: Qualifiers, Duels, The Cut, Divisional Final and the World Final. In the first four rounds, dancers only compete within their division, but in the World Final - the winner from each division will compete against each other for the grand prize of $1 million and the title "Best in the World."
