El Gran Show ("The Amazing Show") is a dance reality show airing on América Televisión in Perú hosted by Gisela Valcárcel. Every season, celebrities and amateur dancers (Dreamers) are paired up. Celebrities have included actors/actresses, models, singers, athletes, teen heartthrobs, television hosts, and comedians. The format is similar to Bailando por un sueño and El Show De Los Sueños: 11 participants called "Dreamers" star in a dance competition in which the winner will realize a dream that becomes public knowledge, either to resolve a personal problem or to help someone else. The program focuses on social assistance that can be provided to talented people who have no economic means to achieve certain goals. The tool that these dreamers have to overcome adversity is their talent for dancing. Eleven couples (dreamer and hero) compete over 10 weekly galas, in which the couple who received the fewest telephone votes from viewers is eliminated. At the final gala, two couples compete to determine who will win the long-awaited fulfilment of their dream.

Concept

The first season of the Peruvian reality show “El Gran Show” was dedicated only to dance. Eleven couples, consisting of a celebrity (called a "hero") and an amateur dancer (called a "dreamer") would dance each week, and all couples would dance the same style of dance. At the end of the show, Gisela revealed who was the winning couple of the week and the bottom two couples with the lowest scores who would go into judgment.

Scoring and the secret score

Each judge gives a 1 to 10 score, for a total score of 4 to 40. One of the scores are not shown in the same airing, it will be revealed in the end of the show with intent that couples can not add or predict final scores and keep tensions and expectations until the time of "The Case"

The Case

The bottom two couples are automatically in risk of being eliminated. The audience members have the entire week (Saturday to Saturday) to vote for their favorite couple. The sentenced couples must induce people to vote for them. On Saturday the bottom two couples are sent to duel.

Duel

The bottom two couples must dance a different dance style than all the non-sentenced couples with professional dancers. While the show is airing, the represented cities of the couples are connected live to the show, to illustrate the support of the family and sometimes of the mayor. At the end of the show, before the Judgment, Gisela reveals the percentages of the two couples. The couple with lowest percentage is eliminated and their score is void.

Faith Balls

The use of "Faith Balls" was introduced in the sixth gala of the first season, but was also used in the second season of "El Show de Los Sueños". Before Gisela revealed the percentages of the bottom two couples, a big glass cup with eight secret balls inside was brought onstage. Six balls have the El Gran Show's logo and two have an "X". Both couples choose one ball. If the chosen ball has the El Gran Show’s logo, Gisela cancels the percentage and the two couples are automatically safe. But if they choose the "X", Gisela must read the results and one couple is eliminated.

Withdrawals

First Season

  • The Playboy model and actress Tilsa Lozano had to leave the competition due to a chronic scoliosis that had affected her since childhood. However, the couple was not eliminated, but had Tilsa a replacement, the actress Pierina Carcelén, who proved to be a very good dancer, but was eliminated in the sixth week, placing sixth and winning two of the twelve weeks.
  • Roberto Martínez Vera-Tudela withdrew from the competition after five judgments due to a severe leg injury. His replacement was the former soccer player and participant of Bailando por un Sueño José Luis Carranza. However, the couple was sentenced when Roberto resigned, therefore, Jose Luis had to deal in the Duel, but he was removed the same night of his first presentation because it did not reach the highest percentage of the auddience.
