Â CBS has announced that Paula Abdul’s new reality series, Live to Dance, will premiere on Tuesday January 4.Â The series premiere will begin with its own special two hour episode and then move to its regular time slot at 8 pm on Wednesdays beginning on January 5.Â The series will be broadcast live on Wednesdays starting January 12.
A press release from CBS describes that the premiere episode of Live to Dance “will follow dancers from across the country auditioning for Abdul and the series’ experts in specially constructed Dance Domes that were built in both New York and Los Angeles to host the auditions.Â At the end of the premiere episode, a group of dancers from all styles, backgrounds and ages will be selected for the Live to Dance cast.”
Once the show moves to its regular time slot, the network reveals “an additional group of dancers from the Dance Dome auditions, who the experts feel deserve a second look, will have one final opportunity to compete in a ‘dance-off,’ to earn a coveted spot in the Live to Dance cast.Â Those contestants who make it through the ‘dance-off’ will travel to Los Angeles, rounding out the final cast of 18 dance acts.”
After the dance groups are set, “the first six dance acts will compete against each other live with two acts advancing.Â After a total of three rounds, the six dance acts that have advanced will compete against one another in the grand finale, where they will battle for the right to be crowned Live to Dance champion and awarded a $500,000 prize.”
Paula Abdul will be service as the head judge, and joined by Travis Payne and Kimberly Wyatt, who also have dance backgrounds.Â Andrew Gunsberg will serve as host.
