Hoping to be the newest face of dance competition shows, Dancing with Myself slides on television with a nuanced idea. The series follows everyday people showcasing their skills as they attempt to replicate the dance moves in each challenge designed by celebrity judges and guests. 

The idea of the show is to mimic the fact that every week people are trying to learn whatever new dance craze is trending across social media. If you need an example of what we mean, check out comedian Kevin Hart and others as they attempt the "Aye Bay Bay" TikTok Slide Challenge. 

Here’s everything we know about Dancing with Myself.  

When is the next Dancing with Myself episode?

The season finale episode of the latest reality show craze Dancing with Myself airs Tuesday, July 19, at 10 pm ET/PT. If you haven't yet joined the new dance phenomenon, Peacock is currently streaming the first episode for free. 

The new episode airing tonight is titled “Robot Grooves” and here is the synopsis: 

" A grad student, a retail manager, identical twins and eight other contestants from across the country enter the Dancing with Myself pods to battle it out over six dance challenges set by celebrity creators Shakira, Nick Jonas and Liza Koshy."

Check out a sneak peek of what you can expect to see on the new episode. 

Dancing with Myself premise 

NBC describes the premise of the series as the following:  

"NBC’s new primetime series Dancing with Myself is inspired by the millions tuning in to watch the latest dance crazes on social media. Dancing with Myself will see a group of everyday people compete each week in a series of high-energy dance challenges designed and demonstrated by the show’s celebrity creators Shakira, Nick Jonas, Liza Koshy and host Camille Kostek. 

Shakira, Liza, Nick and Camille will perform the new dance challenges created specifically for the show, which contestants will have to tackle. They will also enlist the talents of guest celebrities who will submit their own challenges. 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 studio audience. 

As each round of the competition progresses, the creators on the judging panel provide instant feedback and choose their favorites to advance, along with audience picks. Ultimately, however, it’s the studio audience that decides who is named the best dancer of the night and gets to take home the cash prize."

It's safe to say the series is definitely different from other dance competition shows like So You Think You Can Dance on Fox.

Arguably the most notable dancer joining the Dancing with Myself panel is the legend herself, Shakira. Having sold over 80 million records, won three Grammy Awards and inspired numerous people to want to move their hips in ways that only she can, Shakira has built a career as a top-tier entertainer. The "Whenever, Wherever" songstress not only sits as a judge for the new series, but is also on board as an executive producer. 

By the way, if you need a refresher on Shakira’s talent, check out the Super Bowl Halftime Show she co-headlined with Jennifer Lopez.

Joining Shakira as a judge is the youngest of the Jonas Brothers, Nick Jonas. Jonas first amassed global success starring alongside his brothers in a number of television shows and, of course, singing with them as a member of their band. He’s since gone on to star in films like the Jumanji movies and actually served as a judge on the US version of The Voice. As reported in Deadline, Jonas became a part of the Dancing with Myself panel as it was announced that Shaquille O’Neal exited the project. 

Last, but certainly not least, Liza Koshy also serves as a judge for the dance competition. Her name may not be instantly recognizable for some, but Koshy earned millions of fans from her video content on Vine and YouTube. In 2017, she became the fastest personality to reach over 17 million subscribers on YouTube and in 2019 she was included in Time Magazine’s list of the 25 Most Influential People on the Internet.  

Dancing with Myself host 

Hosting Dancing with Myself is model and actress Camille Kostek. This isn’t Kostek’s first dance with reality television. She currently hosts the Wipeout series and on several occasions has served as a guest co-host on Entertainment Tonight.
