Got To Dance returns to Sky1 with Davina McCall
Got To Dance returns to Sky1 in its search to discover the country’s most talented dance floor movers.
The series scours the nation for Britain’s best crews, troupes and solo dancers of all styles and ages. Former Big Brother presenter Davina McCall hosts the competition that Sky say ‘will push contestants to their limits as they strive to win the life-changing cash prize of £250k.’
Auditions range from the comedic to the sublime and are judged by a panel of outspoken experts including West End star and actor, Adam Garcia, singer and trained dancer Kimberly Wyatt and Ashley Banjo, lead dancer and choreographer of Diversity.
Davina McCall says of the shows return: “I am literally beside myself with excitement at the return of our third series of Got To Dance. I love working with gorgeous Adam, lovely Kimberly and of course sweetheart Ashley! Just you wait until you see the auditions – this year the bar has been raised even higher with so many acts worthy of a quarter of a million.”
A total of eight audition shows have been filmed in Dublin, Glasgow and London. This year, the talent who have appeared in front of the judges have been of a world class level Sky say. From the experimental hip hop displayed by Chuck to the pole dancing from Bendy Kate; from hip hop super crew A-Team to Irish dancers Prodijig.
Following these, the judges must whittle those who made the shortlist down to a Final 30, who will then compete across five live semi-final shows. A public vote will decide the eight finalists who will fight for the coveted crown in front of a 6,000-strong audience at Kensington Olympia. This spectacular finale will also be available to view on Sky 3D.
“Since their win last year, cheeky double-act Chris & Wes have been touring the country and have secured their own series on Sky 1 HD – CHRIS & WES LET’S DO THIS. Airing on weeknights at 6pm from Monday 19 December, the ten-part series will follow the lads 24/7 as they embark on a host of brand new adventures. Each episode will be driven by a new milestone in the dance careers- be it a looming professional performance or a significant personal achievement.” Sky add.
