A Grand Forks native won the latest episode of a new dance challenge competition. Dancing with Myself.

Lily Goehring appeared on the first season, episode four of NBC’s Dancing with Myself, a show in which a group of dancers compete every week in a series of high-energy dance challenges designed and demonstrated by the show’s famous creators, including Shakira.


After six intense rounds, 15-year-old Lily danced and won her episode and a $25,000 prize.

The show began with 12 homegrown dancers, each in a capsule. After each unique dance round, the studio audience voted on who should be saved. They were also judged by a panel, which included Shakira, Nick Jonas, and Liza Koshy.

“My name is lily addressingand I love to dance,” Lily said in her opening lines when the show introduced her. She said that she has hearing loss in her left ear and that she doesn’t see deafness as a disability, but as a superpower.


And after a competitive first round, Lily was saved first. She also won the second round from her and received a standing reaction from Koshy.

In the third round, she ended up in the row at risk of elimination, and Shakira had something to say.

“Now, Lily, you’re done in line. I don’t like it one bit. You have so much energy when you dance. I don’t know, I feel like you just had five cups of Colombian coffee with a pound of sugar. You just dance like a superhero,” Shakira said with a laugh.

But that didn’t depress Lily.

“When I have a goal set on something, I always do my best to keep going and not get discouraged and I always try to stay positive in every situation,” Lily said.

Immediately after, Koshy added: “Miss Lily, you are feeling it in every fiber of your being, yes you are.”

With only four people remaining in the competition, Lily was saved again and moved on to the fifth round.

After dancing her heart out in this round, all three judges were impressed and she was saved first, again.

“Lily, what was that?” That was crazy! Oh my gosh,” Jonas said.
“I think Lily is missing some vertebrae,” Shakira added.
“You literally jumped through hoops for us,” Koshy finished.

In the last round, the two remaining contestants were able to create an original dance for their last chance to win, and Lily was not far behind.

After the audience voted for Lily to win the show and the money, she said that she couldn’t wait to buy a new car as she will soon get her driver’s license.

Lily is a student and now lives in Las Vegas.
