The Greatest Dancer reveals new trailer and brand new twist for 2020

The Greatest Dancer returns for Series 2 and here’s a first look ahead of its launch in 2020.


The dance talent show returns to BBC One in January, where dancers of any age and dance style compete to win £50,000 and a chance to perform on Strictly Come Dancing.

Hoping to discover The Greatest Dancer are the superstar Dance Captains: Multi-platinum-selling singer Cheryl, Broadway and Glee star Matthew Morrison and Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse.

For series 2 They are now joined by a brand new Dance Captain – pop star, dancer and choreographer to stars such as Beyonce and Taylor Swift, Todrick Hall.

The series is hosted by singer, rapper and former Strictly Champion Alesha Dixon and Jordan Banjo, member of multi-award winning dance troupe Diversity.

Meanwhile, Curtis Prichard will be in reception welcoming the acts to the studio.


You can watch a first look at The Greatest Dancer series 2 in the tease trailer above.

At the auditions the audience hold the power, and only they will decide if the mirror opens for the acts or not.

The dancers need to impress at least 75% of the audience for the mirror to open and progress in the competition.

And there is a brand new twist at the end of each episode, where one Dance Captain will get to pick one act and take them straight through to the live shows.

Get ready to see talent from across the world of dance from ballet to jazz, street to ballroom, contemporary to Krump as they give the performances of their lives in the hope of opening the mirror.


Expect dramatic auditions, outstanding talent and jaw dropping surprises. But who will become The Greatest Dancer?

The Greatest Dancer returns Saturday 4th January, 7pm on BBC One.
