Louie Spence throws shade at ‘uninspired’ Greatest Dancer and turns to rival show

Louie Spence was not impressed by The Greatest Dancer, throwing major shade at the BBC show.

The new show sees Oti Mabuse, Cheryl and Matthew Morrison try to find the newest and greatest dancer in the UK.

They watch performers with a whole host of audience members, each of whom vote for whether they want to send the dancer through to the next round.

If they do like the performers enough, the walls of the little room open when 75% of the audience are up for it, meaning the dancers get the chance to hear some critique from the captains.

  • Cheryl and Oti Mabuse baffle Greatest Dancer fans with weird outfit conversation

 

On tonight’s show, one of the dancers was popping and locking in an amazing way, getting the whole of the audience on their feet along with the captains as he showed off his moves.

But clearly what he was doing was not doing it for Louie, and he took to Instagram to share his upset.

He posted a picture of the show and Kieran, the dancer on the show at the time, with the caption: "Not impressed uninspired time for #thevoice"

Louie also posted a blowing kiss emoji, to say goodbye to The Greatest Dancer as he turned over to the rival show on ITV.

Of course the BBC gave up The Voice, which then moved over to ITV, which must add an extra sting.

Louie has already spoken out about the show, saying it was "weak," and calling out Cheryl, saying she is "not a national treasure."

The Voice airs Saturdays at 8pm on ITV and The Greatest Dancer airs Saturdays at 7.30pm on BBC1.
