'Live To Dance' announces last finalist and acts perform for final time
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 02/03/2011
Live To Dance determined its last finalist during Wednesday night's live broadcast on CBS.
Live To Dance's fourth live broadcast began with host Andrew Gunsberg publicly announcing Kendall Glover, an 11-year-old from Phoenix, AZ, had become the sixth and final performer of the competition's 18 semifinalist acts to make it to the night's final round after she received the most home viewer votes following last week's broadcast which featured the last six of the acts performing.
"I made it to the finals! I am so excited! This is one chance in a lifetime. I'm just a little 11-year-old from Phoenix and I am the only soloist in the finals against these like 40-people groups... I want to make this one different from all my other dances," Glover said after she learned she was advancing to the finals.
Live To Dance's broadcast then featured the competition's final round of performances as the six finalist acts -- who were chosen to advance by Live To Dance judges Paula Abdul, Travis Payne and Kimberly Wyatt or home viewers from the previous semifinal rounds -- performed live on the stage and competed for the $500,000 prize in Live To Dance's penultimate episode.
The act chosen as the winner by home viewers will be revealed during the Live To Dance live finale on next Wednesday night's broadcast.
In addition to Glover, the six acts who performed Wednesday night were: Dance Town Chaos, a 12-member all-male group from Miami, FL; D'Angelo Castro, a nine-year-old from Miami, FL, and Amanda Carbajales, a 10-year-old also from Miami, FL; The Vibe, a 38-member group from Utah; Twitch, a nine-member teen act from FL; and White Tree Fine Art, a coed duo from San Francisco, CA.
Next week's Live To Dance finale broadcast will air Wednesday, February 9 at 8PM ET/PT.
