The Greatest Dancer 2020 results! Who left? Two acts voted off opening live show

Who left The Greatest Dancer? Week 1 (February 1) results

Two acts have been voted off The Greatest Dancer in Saturday’s first live show results.


It was the first week of the challenge shows this weekend and twelve acts started the competition – but TWO were seen heading home last night (Saturday, February 1).

Dance captains Cheryl, Oti Mabuse, Todrick and Matthew Morrison returned with their contestants in a bid to win over viewer votes.

After all had performed live for a first time it was over to viewers to vote for their favourite. Once lines had closed, the two acts with the fewest votes were revealed.

Hosts Jordan Banjo and Alesha Dixon announced the public votes this weekend (February 1) as all female Jazz group The Queens on Cheryl’s team and Todrick’s commercial solo dancer Ryan Gibson were eliminated.

Now ten acts remain in the competition with a cash prize of £50,000 up for grabs and the chance to perform on Strictly Come Dancing.

Currently making up Cheryl’s squad are Duo Lily & Joseph and all male contemporary dance group Brothers of Dance.


On Oti’s squad are hip hop dance crew Dark Angels, contemporary group Vale and Latin & ballroom pair Michael & Jowita

Todrick’s squad features contemporary performer Ainsley Ricketts and mixed contemporary dance group Dancepoint.

Finally, on Matthew’s squad are contemporary fusion dancer Hannah Martin, contemporary soloist Harrison Ellison and street dance duo Ross and Travis.

In the live shows, each act is given a new challenge each week for their performance. It could be a prop they need to include or a theme they must incorporate into their routine.

As well as the viewer votes, the audience at The Greatest Dancer studio could also vote for their favourite. Here’s how the audience voted…
