Episode Guide

  • Season 1
    • Auditions #1 and #2: New York and Chicago
      In this two-hour premiere episode, auditions are held in New York and Chicago for dancers who hope to become America's Favorite Dancer. If dancers are successful in this first round of auditions, they will move on to the next round in Hollywood.
    • Auditions #3: Los Angeles

      In this special 90 minute episode, the auditions take place over 2 days in Los Angeles, CA. The dancers perform a solo or with a partner for the producers in order to move on to the next round. The producers let several creative, attention-grabbing dancers through, regardless of how well they can actually dance. Many contestants were heavily weighed on their "likeability" for a TV show.

      In the next round, the dancers are given choreography to perform in smaller groups for more talent-related judging. They are to learn a solo routine as well as a partner routine, but the first day of LA auditions put so few people through that they skip the solo routine. Several dancers are put through to Hollywood, and a few husband/wife teams are broken apart as one part of the team makes it through and the other doesn't.moreless

      Several of the choreographers are now judges. This includes Mia, Brian and Dan. Joining them to make an even four is Producer Nigel. During the first round, each of the 16 dancers will dance in pairs. The pairs are chosen by the male dancer pulling the name of a female dancer out of a hat. The pair must dance to the style of dance that the female dancer pulls out of a hat. After the first round, the dancers line-up on stage and the bottom 3 couples, as decided by the judges, are put up for elimination. During the second round, the 6 dancers that are put up for elimination (one male and one female from each couple) dance solo for 45 seconds. After the show, the audience can call to vote for their favorite dancer leaving one male and one female dancer with the lowest number of votes eliminated before next week. During the first round, the pairs that are made include: Kamilah and Nick dance in hip-hop style, Michelle and Jonnis dance in mambo style, Ashle and Jamille dance in jive style, Sandra and Artem dance in lyrical style, Snow and Allan dance in hip-hop style, Melissa and Ryan dance in mambo style, Melody and Craig dance in jive style, and Destini and Blake dance in lyrical style.moreless

      At the beginning of the episode, 2 dancers from last week are cut. At that point, the competition continues in the same format as last week, only they don’t show the actual “picking” process, and the dancers pair up differently each time allowing them all to dance together once.

      This week, Brian, Mia, Nigel, Mary and Dan are all judging, however if a judge choreographed the performance, he/she sits out of judging that round. Also, this week each dancer will dance as an individual as part of the performance.

      The 4 dancers compete in the following order: Melody and Nick (Paso Doble), Ashle and Jamile (Salsa), Melody solo (Lyrical), Nick and Jamile (Hip Hop), Ashle solo (Lyrical), Jamile solo (Hip Hop/Pop Lock), Ashle and Melody (Lyrical), Nick solo (Lyrical), Melody and Jamile (Jazz), and Ashle and Nick (Hip Hop).

      In round 2 there is a twist. No couples are put up for elimination. All 4 dancers dance as individuals to a song they’ve never heard before in a randomly drawn order.moreless
