'Live To Dance' advances two more semifinalist acts to finale
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 01/27/2011
Live To Dance determined two more finalists during Wednesday night's live broadcast on CBS.
Live To Dance's third live broadcast began with host Andrew Gunsberg announcing Twitch, a nine-member teen act from FL, had become the fourth of the competition's 18 semifinalist acts to make it to the final round after they received the most home viewer votes following last week's broadcast which featured six of the acts performing.
Live To Dance's broadcast then featured the third round of semifinalist performances as the last six acts performed live on the stage and competed for two spots -- one chosen by the show's judges, and one by the votes cast by home viewers after Wednesday night's episode -- in the competition's final round.
The act chosen by home viewers will be revealed during the Live To Dance final round next Wednesday night, while the two acts that advanced from this week's semifinals round will then return to compete during next week's live show.
The six acts who performed Wednesday night were: Dance Town Chaos, a 12-member all-male group from Miami, FL; Jill Wilson, a 16-year-old from Beverly Hills, CA, and Jacob Jonas, an 18-year-old from Santa Monica, CA; Roosevelt Anderson, a 22-year-old from Brooklyn, NY; Tap Sounds Underground, a male duo from Los Angeles, CA; Shore Thing, a 19-member all-female act from Cape May, NJ; and Kendall Glover, an 11-year-old from Phoenix, AZ.
Live To Dance judges Paula Abdul, Travis Payne and Kimberly Wyatt picked Dance Town Chaos to advance to the finals out of the six acts who performed, leaving the home viewers to decide which of the five other acts will be the second act to advance.
"We're so thankful to all the experts for everything and we're so excited. We're extremely pumped and we're ready to go to the finals!" a Dance Town Chaos representative said.
Next week's Live To Dance broadcast will feature the six finalist acts performing and air Wednesday, February 2 at 8PM ET/PT.
