Shakira and Nick Jonas promote new competition Dancing with Myself at NBC Upfronts in NYC

Three-time Grammy winner Shakira reunited with two-time Grammy nominee Nick Jonas onstage Radio City Music Hall on Monday to promote their new competition Dancing with Myself during the NBCUniversal Upfront.

The Colombian 45-year-old and Liza Koshy co-created the TikTok-inspired eight-episode series – premiering May 31 on NBC – where they serve as ‘saviors’ alongside the 29-year-old New Jersey boy.

‘We have to save people after they get eliminated by the audience,’ Shakira told TODAY on Monday.

‘That’s our job, to save who we consider should stay in the show. Less judgy than The Voice.’

Camille Kostek hosts Dancing with Myself where 12 contestants perform dances created by the panel in separate pods and the studio audience decides who gets the cash prize.

‘The show is not about virtuosity. I think it’s about people expressing their passion for dancing and their love of dance,’ the Te Felicito songstress clarified.

‘You don’t have to be an expert and most of them aren’t. There’s kids, you know, there’s doctors and teachers. We’ve had construction workers, pilots, and a lot of dentists.’
