Under a picture posted to her account she wrote, “Hi to my World of Dance lovers! I have some news to share: I will not be returning to the show as host for season 3.”
She continued, “But! I won’t be able to stay away for long, and plan to return to mentor contestants as much as possible ☺️. It has been an absolute thrill to be a part of this incredible, groundbreaking show from the very beginning, and I am forever grateful to my @nbc family, @jlo, @derekhough @neyo and everyone involved in this journey.”
“We are changing the dance world and giving opportunities to dancers in ways I've only dreamed of! Can't wait to share more news with you soon. Much love to everyone,” she ended.
According a source, the 37-year-old is stepping down from her position as host due to scheduling conflicts. And there’s not deny that she has a LOT on her plate. Currently, she has a recurring role on The Resident and she is set star in The Wedding Years and the upcoming Netflix musical The Mixtape.
The World of Dance insider also revealed that instead of finding someone to replace the Step Up star, the show will remain without a host for season 3.
