My Very Special Guests today are killing it on the NEW hit show on NBC "Dancing With Myself" Lily Kate and Nick Gray!
Taking the social media dance craze to a new level, NBC has joined forces with international superstar Shakira on the exciting dance-challenge series "Dancing With Myself." With more than 300 million followers, 80 million records sold worldwide and multiple Grammy Awards, music and dance icon Shakira broke the internet in 2021 with her own viral dance, "Girl Like Me."
Motivated by her passion and love for dance and the proliferation of dance challenges that have taken the world by storm,
"Dancing With Myself," from Irwin Entertainment, is the ultimate family-friendly, high-spirited competition that brings out the performer in all of us. Every week, a new group of fun-loving dancers from all walks of life and of all ages compete in a series of high-energy dance challenges that are designed and demonstrated by the show's celebrity creators Shakira, Nick Jonas, Liza Koshy and host Camille Kostek.
So…Isolated in their own pods, contestants have a short time to learn the new routines, add their unique flair and then perform their hearts out in front of a live audience.
