Paula Abdul’s comeback since hosting American Idol is finally here as her latest show on CBS, Live to Dance, premieres tonight on DISH Network. Oddly enough, Abdul’s new reality dance competition series will overlap with season 10 of American Idol, it will be interesting to see how both shows fare throughout their respective seasons beginning in January. You can find tonight’s premiere of Live to Dance on CBS at 8/7 Central or access the shows via your DISH Remote Access App on any smart phone or PC.
Based on the U.K. hit Got to Dance, Paula Abdul’s Live to Dance promises to be different from current U.S.-based reality dance competitions seeing as there are no age or dance style limitations, plus you can be a soloist, duo or group which gives people more of an opportunity to participate in the TV-based forum. In a recent interview with CBS’ The Early Show, Abdul calls her show “a gem” and describes some of the performances as “awe-inspiring, ones that choke you up.”
Not only will Paula Abdul act as a judge on the show, but she will also serve as a personal mentor and coach to help prepare each of the acts as they get their one chance to dance up on stage in front of America and the remaining judges including choreographer Travis Payne and singer/dancer Kimberly Wyatt. The winning dancer, duo or group will receive a cash prize of $500,000 plus world-wide recognition as the winner of Live to Dance.
