So You Think You Can Dance returns this Saturday at 7:10PM to BBC One!

So You Think You Can Dance

TV hottie Cat Deeley returns to host the search for the nation's hottest dance talent for a second series of dancing reality talent show So You Think You Can Dance this weekend on BBC One. Nigel Lythgoe is back to take up his position as head judge, along with former Strictly judge Arlene Phillips, choreographer Sisco Gomez and ex-popstar Louise Redknapp!

The show will once again see talented competitors from all over the UK come to parade their unique take on hip-hop, Latin, contemporary, commercial, jazz and any number of free-style moves in a bid to win over the judges. For the lucky Top 20 (10 men and 10 women) who make it through both the auditions and Choreography Camp: the chance to strut their stuff in front of the nation, live on BBC One every Saturday night.

Each week they're taught to perform a new routine by world-renowned choreographers, and struggle as they step out of their comfort zones – ballet dancers could, for example, be asked to attempt hip-hop routines, and tap dancers could tackle contemporary dance.

But like in any reality talent show nowadays it's not only the judges the finalists will have to impress, as it's the viewers who will get the final say in who leaves each week and eventually who will win the show. No fewer than two dancers will be eliminated in every live show, meaning it's all to play for right from the start.

The journey begins with the first round of auditions on Saturday night, as dancers from all over the UK bring their best moves to the nation's capital London, hoping to impress the judges and win a "golden ticket" to take them straight through to Choreography Camp.

Among the dancing stars to look out for in this weekend's series opener are a partially deaf jazz dancer, a mother and daughter who brought the carnival vibe, and a phenomenal tap talent.

So You Think You Can Dance, Saturday at 7:10PM only on BBC One.
