Nick Jonas replaces reality TV judge ahead of premiere
Nick Jonas puts his talents at the service of a new series. Deadline reported that Nick Jonas will replace Shaquille O’Neal on NBC’s upcoming new show, dance with myself. After production was delayed due to technical difficulties, O’Neal was forced out of the series.
Jonas will join a jury also made up of Shakira and Liza Koshy. Camille Kostek will host the series. O’Neal has already been selected to be one of the judges. However, technical difficulties during rehearsals delayed production by a few days (Deadline noted that there were apparently issues with the stage design). As a result, the basketball legend was no longer able to continue the program. Production on the series is expected to begin soon.
Jonas is no stranger to reality competitions. He was previously one of the coaches of The voice. While he was coach on seasons 18 and 20, he was replaced by Ariana Grande for season 21. The interpreter of “Jealous” should return for season 22.
dance with myself features everyday people trying their hand at dance challenges that will be designed and demonstrated by the judges. At the end of the season, the studio audience can decide who they think is the best dancer and then walk away with the grand prize. The show is said to be inspired by the dance crazes that are going viral on sites such as TikTok.
It was originally reported in December that Shakira would headline the new contest for NBC. At the time, she released a statement in which she talked about what viewers can expect from the new series. She began, “I’m thrilled to be part of a dance competition that places such a high value on creative movement and how it translates into self-expression, not to mention how it contributes to a feeling. of community.” The singer continued, “I’ve personally been blown away by some of the talent I’ve seen thanks to people accessing their own platforms through social media. Dance has been an incredibly powerful force throughout my life. , and I can’t wait to show the world just how transformative, empowering and fun it can be.”
