Ne-Yo joins TV dance competition as judge alongside JLo
'Closer' hitmaker Ne-Yo has joined the judging panel of an exciting new reality dance competition show.
The star will sit alongside Jennifer Lopez and dancer Derek Hough on the 'World of Dance' panel and there will be a grand prize of $1m (£800,850) up for grabs.
Meredith Ahr, the Universal Television alternative studio president, issued a statement on the news and said: "Jennifer, Derek and Ne-Yo are three of the most accomplished dancers of their generation, and their incredible insight from the judges' table will be both inspiring and wholly constructive to the world-class level of dancers who are competing on the show. We feel so very honoured that the three of them are giving back to the dance community in this way."
Ne-Yo is currently in the UK where he will perform a series of live dates beginning with a show at Glasgow's Barrowlands on Wednesday, December 7. He will also visit London's Brixton Academy (December 16) and the BIC in Bournemouth (December 14). Tickets are on sale now here.
