Jermaine Jackson searches for best Michael Jackson dancer on BBC Three

Jackson 5’er, Jermaine Jackson, is to be one of the judges on brand new BBC Three series called Move Like Michael Jackson.

The six-part dance series will see a nationwide search to find Britain’s most talented and original dancers who can demonstrate they have the spirit, showmanship and technical ability of the great man.

Okay, maybe not ‘original’ then.

Back in the studio, Jermaine and the rest of the panel will be seeing who can put their true versatility and ingenuity to the test as they perform to classic Michael Jackson tracks.

Aimed at finding dancers who best embody the spirit of Michael Jackson on stage, the show will include competitors from all backgrounds, individuals and group performances.

Jermaine said: “Michael was a superb dancer who inspired people across the world to master his moves and create their own unique routines. I’m really excited and delighted to be part of this show and look forward to finding the UK’s most talented and inspiring dancers.”

Jermaine completely didn’t say: “I’m doing rather well since my brother died. I’ve been inundated with TV offers! It’s great!”

Move Like Michael Jackson will be broadcast later in the year and will be stripped across one week. Auditions will be held across the country in October and are open to anyone aged 16 and over. For an application form e-mail dance(at)fevermedia(dot)co(dot)uk.
