What is The Greatest Dancer?

Everything you need to know about the new dancing talent show:

Simon Cowell is behind this brand new dance show that will air in 2019 on BBC1

A pilot for the show was filmed in February at Hammersmith Apollo for a programme called The Greatest Show,

which was billed as featuring international stars and giving the audience the power to decide how far the acts went in the competition.

The title has now morphed into The Greatest Dancer, with soloists, duos and groups auditioning on stage.

The show will apparently “put the fate of the UK’s best dance acts in your hands” (although whether that’s the studio audience or viewers at home remains to be seen).

A BBC press release about the show said: “From ballet to jazz, hip hop to Bollywood, the show is open to anyone.

Expect dramatic auditions, incredible challenges and remarkable live performances as dancers swing, swirl and sashay onto the stage each week in the hope of being named The Greatest Dancer.”




The judges are actually called ‘Dance Captains’, and they have been confirmed as former X Factor judge Cheryl, Glee star Matthew Morrison and Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Oti Mabuse.

The Greatest Dancer Jordan Banjo and Alesha Dixon

Alesha Dixon is returning to the BBC alongside Jordan Banjo, with the pair confirmed as hosts of The Greatest Dancer.

Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha was the winner of Strictly Come Dancing in 2007,

and went on to replace Arlene Phillips as a judge on the show before quitting to join the BGT panel.

Jordan, meanwhile, is the Diversity star who was the backstage digital presenter of Dancing on Ice in 2018.

Alesha said: “I can’t wait to be a part of The Greatest Dancer and work with Jordan.

As a massive fan of dance I’m so excited about the prospect of finding amazing new dance talent.”

This sounds like Dance Boss. 

Anyway, ki at Matthew Morrison now being a reality show judge. He went from Glee to this. :kelly: (not that glee was ever any good but it was a big network show)
