Got To Dance 2014 is returning this summer and it's coming back with a huge X Factor style makeover.

Sky1 confirmed just this morning that Adam Garcia is back on Got To Dance, judging what will be the fifth series alongside Kimberly Wyatt and Ashley Banjo.

This year will see each judge mentoring his or her own dancers throughout the series. All contestants will once again have to gain three stars to get onto the judges shortlist, from which Ashley, Adam and Kimberly will each pick six acts for their team – these are the acts they will mentor for the duration of the competition.

Unlike any other talent show, in the live shows each judge will take control of a single episode helping shape music, themes, styling and choreography for their acts – as well as performing themselves!

Adam Garcia said: "This year we’re going head to head as we’re picking our favourite acts to mentor. I’m so excited that for this year we’ll be able to work so closely with our chosen dancers and really invest in every aspect of their act.”

In addition, 2014 sees The Roundhouse in Camden, London replacing the iconic Domes used in the past four series, for a completely fresh look and environment. Filming will take place across six consecutive days and each audition episode reflects the excitement of that day at The Roundhouse.

And as well as all that, to celebrate Series 5, Sky 1 has supersized the live shows with all three heats and the final coming from Earls Court with a 6000 strong audience each night.

One winner will be crowned “Got To Dance Champion 2014” and will walk away with £250,000.
