Meet Philip Lawrence, Future Host of Talent Show ‘Come Dance With Me’
Upcoming CBS talent show Come Dance With Me has found its host. The dance competition, which was announced last year, will be hosted by Philip Lawrence.
Lawrence joins Jenna Dewan, who was recently announced as one of the show’s judges. Although he isn’t known as a dancer, he showed off a few moves for his part in Jingle Jangle, and also danced alongside Bruno Mars during his Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2014.

What is the Upcoming Show About?
Come Dance With Me is an upcoming dance competition show executive produced by NCIS: Los Angeles stars LL Cool J and Chris O’Donnell. It’s reportedly set to film in Australia starting in late May.
The show will feature several young dancers who will each perform with an untrained grown-up from their life, with the help of choreographers. They’ll be competing for a grand prize.
It sounds like the show will be heartwarming and family-friendly, giving the dancers a chance to bond with the people who have supported their dreams. We can’t wait to find out who the other judges will be.
