Lifetime has revealed the identities of the three judges forYour Mama Don't Dance, a new reality competition series that partners professional two-steppers with one of their novice parents.
Choreographer Cris Judd, Tony Award-winning actor/dancer Ben Vereen, and singer/actress Vitamin C will be responsible for determining the two teams who receive the lowest score during each week of the competition.
However it's home viewers who will ultimately be responsible for determining each duo's fate, as fans will be able to vote via the phone, Internet or text messaging immediately following each episode, with the team on the chopping block who receives the least amount of viewer votes being sent packing.
Your Mama Don't Dance's live finale will air on April 18, with the three remaining teams competing in-front of the judges and home viewers one last time. The winning team will be announced following a live vote, and will receive $100,000 in cash and prizes.
Judd won ABC's February 2003 I'm a Celebrity - Get Me Out of Here! reality series, for which he received a $200,000 donation for the Make-a-Wish Foundation. More recently, he hosted WE's Dirty Dancing reality series. Vitamin C has one previous reality TV credit -- serving as a judge on The WB's Summer 2004 Superstar USAAmerican Idol-hoax series.
