BBC Three has launched a nationwide search to find Britain's most talented and original dancers who can demonstrate they have the showmanship of Michael Jackson for a six part series going out December 2009.
Loads of dancers turned up for BBC Three’s MOVE LIKE MICHAEL JACKSON auditions and performed their hearts out.
The judges were impressed by the talent on show. But only 16 finalists will get the chance to work with Michael Jackson’s choreographer and friend Lavelle Smith Jr. Then they’ll go head-to-head in a dance-off which will be judged by Jermaine Jackson, Jamelia and Mark Summers (European casting director for the THIS IS IT Tour).
Stay tuned for all the action when the six-part series, hosted by Radio 1’s Reggie Yates starts on BBC Three on Monday 14th December and ends with the Live Final on 20th December.
But the fun is just beginning – now it’s your chance to join in!
Lavelle Smith Jr has created a new routine exclusive to BBC Three to ‘BEAT IT’, featuring five classic Michael Jackson moves – the Moonwalk, Toe Pop, Crotch Grab, Lean and Leg Kick.
All you need to do is go to the BBC Three website and choose one of the moves to learn using Lavelle’s easy-to-follow tutorials, film yourself copying the choreography and then upload it. Simple!
Whether your interpretation is smooth or just plain criminal, your video may be featured on television during the live final on BBC Three! Plus once you have submitted your entry you can enter your name to get one of a pair of tickets to the LIVE FINAL itself. For more information visit: www.bbc.co.uk/movelikemichaeljackson/goldenticket
