Jenna Dewan will be a judge on an upcoming talent show called Come Dance With Me. The upcoming show sounds like a feel-good competition that brings loved ones together.

The show was first announced last September, and will be executive produced by NCIS: Los Angeles stars LL Cool J and Chris O’Donnell.

Jenna Dewan Joins ‘Come Dance With Me’

Jenna Dewan has been set as a judge on upcoming CBS show Come Dance With Me. The dancer and actress was previously the host of World of Dance on NBC.

Dewan is a talented dancer who previously performed with Janet Jackson. She also starred with ex-husband Channing Tatum in the 2006 dance film Step Up.

Come Dance With Me will reportedly film in Australia in late May. The show will feature young dancers and an untrained grown-up from their life. They will dance together with help from choreographers, competing for a grand prize.

“It’s a different way into the dance space and performance,” Mitch Graham, SVP of Alternative Programming at CBS, told Deadline. “The dance space is a little crowded so we have to figure what’s our way of doing that show.”

Jenna Dewan’s Daughter is a Dance Judge

Dewan’s daughter, Everly, is apparently a talent show judge in the making. Dewan told Ellen DeGeneres that she and World of Dance judge, Derek Hough, were rehearsing a performance when Everly shared her thoughts.

“She wanted to be the judge,” Jenna explained. “We literally gave her a piece of paper, and we did our performances.” Everly apparently gave Derek a score of 6, but Jenna a score of 8, which she was very proud of. She said Everly was a “tough judge.”

Everly is turning 8 years old this year, so maybe she’ll join her mom on Come Dance With Me before we see her as a talent show judge herself in the future.
