Reality TV show fans have another treat to look forward to come the 4th of January. This dance show is said to be like no other reality TV show that we have witnessed in the past year. As the name implies, Superstars of Dance is all about dancing and proving who is the best in this art. However, this TV show is not something that you can dismiss lightly.
More than the celebrity that wants to become a dancer, or the nobody that wants to have his time in the limelight, Superstars of Dance actually features professional dancers who are at the height of their careers. Ace Showbiz tells us what to expect from Superstars of Dance.
New dancing reality TV show “Superstars of Dance”, produced by Nigel Lythgoe and Simon Fuller, two masterminds behind “American Idol” and “So You Think You Can Dance”, promises to bring in something different. Unlike two other dancing competitions, “So You Think You Can Dance” and “Dancing with the Stars” which determine their winners through viewers’ vote, this NBC’s TV show will rely its evaluation on the selected world-class judges.
“These are professional dancers; it would be very difficult for someone at home in their living room to pass judgment on the prima ballerina from Russia,” host Michael Flatley explains why audiences are not involved. “It’s very difficult to see how she might have done her pirouette or how she may have stood en pointe properly. It takes a specialist.”
I like the idea that the decision is brought back to judges. Although I believe in the power of the vote, it is also true that voting is very subjective while having professional judges do the decision making makes for less margin of error. Anyhow, I am an ignoramus when it comes to dancing techniques BUT this show is sure to be an interesting one to follow come the new year.
