Who won The Greatest Dancer? Recap all the results and contestants who made the live shows.

Over four weeks of auditions, dance acts of any style or genre auditioned for a live studio audience. The crowd could vote for an act using a keypad and if more than 75% of the audience voted, that act made the call backs.

At the callback stages, dance captains Cheryl, Oti Mabuse and Matthew Morrison had the tough task of whittling down the contestants picking three each to mentor in the live challenge shows.

Nine acts made it through to the live stages, competing to win £50,000, a chance to dance on Strictly Come Dancing and become The Greatest Dancer.

In the first three weeks, each of the dancers were set a challenge which they had to tackle with their Dance Captain to create an unforgettable performance.

It could have been to use a specific prop or choregraph a routine with a unique theme.

In the live shows, the power is in the complete hands of the viewers at home, as they voted to decide who staysed in the competition each week. The acts with the fewest votes were sent home until the final, where four remained.

There, each act danced twice - incuding a performance with thier dance captain - before the winner was crowned by viewers.

Here are the contestants, results and winner of The Greatest Dancer 2019...
