Lizzo is no stranger to encouraging her fans to feel “good as hell” and to be their best selves! Now, the “Truth Hurts” singer and breakout TikTok sensation is bringing self-confidence to the small screen in the upcoming Amazon Prime series “Watch Out for the Big Grrrls!”
Lizzo posted the trailer for the reality series on Twitter this afternoon and expressed her excitement for the upcoming show which will be released in the Spring. She captioned her tweet “I BEEN WAITING FOR THIS ONE… TURN IT UP.”
The three-time Grammy Award winner then delivered a giant proclamation to close out her tweet: She named her latest career venture “The greatest moment of my career yet,” followed by several crying emojis. We love an artist who is proud of their work!
What Can We Expect From “Watch Out for the Big Grrrls?”
Lizzo is ready to discover the most talented dancers she possibly can on her quest to find backup dancers for her upcoming tour. At the beginning of the trailer, the 33-year old proclaims she’s going to “Pull up her sleeves” in order to give dancers who “look like me” a platform for exposure, after proclaiming they “Don’t get representation” to a widespread audience.
Viewers will get to have access to the contestants’ journeys as they meet their future tour ring leader and show off their best dancing skills! According to Deadline, the contestants will also live in designated quarters called “The Big Grrrls House” throughout the audition process. There is sure to be lots of behind-the-scenes action and perhaps a dash of drama, behind these doors!
Lizzo’s desire to bring this concept to life is anything but dramatic. In an interview with Andy Cohen on his Sirius XM channel from last September, Lizzo said, “It’s always been a dream of mine to do this. I don’t want to say too much, but this is something I’ve been working on for years and years and years.” Lizzo looks extra excited in the interview as she announced the series had begun production on the same day she sat down for her interview with Cohen!

One contestant can be heard saying “To be a background dancer for Lizzo would be everything” in a voice-over from the trailer.
We can expect several candid moments from contestants as they navigate their newfound goal of accompanying Lizzo on tour. Another contestant reveals “I was always doubting myself, and I feel like that’s been detrimental in how I approach dance,” revealing a glimpse into the more vulnerable and human side of being a dancer. The dancer concludes her statement by adding, “I’m realizing I do deserve a spot on that stage.”
Lizzo’s fans also deserve to watch these talented ladies live their dreams! Episodes of “Watch Out for the Big Grrrls” will be released on Amazon Prime on March 25th. To answer Lizzo’s question in her Twitter announcement, We sure are ready to laugh, cry, and twerk along to our future reality TV obsession!
