World Of Dance returned to NBC for its third season last night. Among those competing for the million-dollar prize are Jonathan Troncosoand Jorge Valcarcel. The twosome are the show’s first ever same-sex gender pairing.
“We want to bring awareness to the 🌈 same-gender dance community 🌈,” the pair told Out. “We want everyone to see that same-gender dancing can be just as strong and impactful as traditional dancing. We want people to see us and like or dislike us as dancers and not simply because we’re two men dancing together. We just wanna dance.”
The sizzling salsa duo absolutely slay their routine with theirincredible aerial acrobatics and mind-boggling spins set to the tune of Jennifer Lopez’s “El Anillo.” Speaking of J-Lo, the 49-year-old entertainer was so wowed, she said Jonathan y Jorge could be her backup dancers. Let’s see if she actually hires them 😉
Watch the clip below. Derek Hough even gets in on the action and partners up with one of the duo.
