EVERYBODY DANCE NOW is great for showcasing the many talented Australian dancers & it is a way to let everyone see the many different styles of dance out there.
The format however, has been debatable.
From my understanding (insiders info) there are 24 teams that need to compete in the televised heats to get into the quarter finals.
|JASON & KELLY ON SET|
they simply choose a team to compete.
It is meant to be a game of strategy.
Each week 8 teams / dancers with various styles compete in Dance Duels and at the end four teams battle it out in a final Duel to move forward into the Quarter final, two of which are chosen to go through.
The audience holds all the power and they vote on which team wins each Duel including the final 30 sec duel which is the decider.
The Dance Masters have to plead their case and reason why the audience should vote for their team.
The heats are pre-recorded and the finals are live. It is filmed in Melbourne.
Once it goes LIVE Australia gets to cast their VOTE.
The are a few issues I have with EVERYBODY DANCE NOW, the first one being the really bad camera angles and editing.
After watching it LIVE in the studio, what I expected to see on Television and what they actually aired was very different.
Also the tallying of the votes comes across too quick on TV, alot of people are confused.
My other gripe was the waiting time.
On arrival we were escorted as VIP'S into a warehouse and were lead to a section where there chairs in a semi-circle, we thought cool VIP treatment, but then the waiting began.
We sat for 9 hours the first day of filming and 6 hours the second day! Phew I had back ache! It was way too long to keep an audience waiting.
I felt bad for the people who did not have a seat.
BUT it was absolutely worth it to see our girls do their thing on stage and also the other acts
On the first day of filming, we were also treated to a live performance by "Jason Derulo", who also proceeded to sing his name for us.
That was cool.

Dave Eastgate is the funniest guy ever. He had us in stitches with his jokes and funny antics which included throwing himself around the stage and exposing his beer belly. Dave deserves some kind of award.
He is at almost every recording of shows of this type. He gets the jobs.

Check out our SAEA BANYANAS in their heat, they nailed their performance and the audience voted in their favour. Not only are they $10,000 richer, they are on their way to winning the grand prize of $250,000.00 and Australia gets to see their talent and beauty.
I am looking forward to catching the girls in their quarter final performance, in a couple of weeks. As Kelly Rowland said they are "full of surprises" and you can guarantee they will be "bringing the heat".
