The Greatest Dancer

Recommended Posts

According to this interview with Matthew Morrison:

Quote

Speaking of TV, tell me about "The Greatest Dancer," the new show you're doing with Simon Cowell.

It's thrilling and so fresh. It's Simon's first talent show for the BBC. I'm a dance captain, along with Cheryl Tweedy and Oti Mabuse. The dancers walk into an audition room with mirrors before them. And there's an audience of 3,000 behind the mirrors, but the dancers don't know it. If 75% of the audience, which has controls, lights up for them, the dancers go on to the next round. I don't vote. I'm just there to give positive, constructive criticism and inspire them. It'll start airing in January in the U.K.

is it just me or is anyone else a bit skewed out by having a “special bond” between a 17 year old and a 11 year old?  Great routine though.

I'm sorry but the 'Doctor Who' challenge dance had absolutely nothing to do with Doctor Who. It's so obvious from the judges comments that none of them had ever seen. You can't wear a stripy outfit and a long coat and call yourself 'Doctor Who inspired'.
