It’s been hyped for what feels like forever but the show is finally here – The Greatest Dancer started this month.
Former Girls Aloud star Cheryl Tweedy , Strictly Come Dancing ’s Oti Mabuse and singer-songwriter and dancer Matthew Morrison are all on the panel of stars watching the dancers’ auditions.
The hosts are Britain’s Got Talent’s Alesha Dixon and Diversity’s Jordan Banjo who will introduce the dancers and show each week.
There’s a £50,000 prize for the eventual winner, so the stakes are high.
The Beeb will be hoping their new talent show venture has what it takes to beat ITV’s singing contest, The Voice – because they air at roughly the same time this weekend.
Here’s what you need to know about the The Greatest Dancer and how long it’s on for.

The show’s format means the auditions take place behind a mirror. If the audience like them enough they vote for them to go through to the next round.
It will be available on BBCiPlayer for those who want to catch up.
How long does the series run for?
The series will run for eight episodes (seven weeks) and so the last episode, when the winner is crowned, will be Saturday February 23.
