Dancers audition for a ticket to a big workshop in Oslo. The dancer must use music from the record companys: Universal Music, EMI, Warner Music or Sony BMG. You must be 16 years old for audition.


The first audition were in Oslo, Norway.

We met these dancers who came to the top 24:


After the auditions in Norway, Denmark and Sweden the show had a big workshop in Oslo.There they found 8 dancers from each country. 4 males and 4 females each.



The finals began with 24 contestants, 4 male and 4 female from each country. After partners are assigned, couples pick a dance style out of a hat, are rehearsed by a choreographer, and perform their routine. Following the airing performances, home wievers vote for their favorite couple. The bottom three couples (six dancers overall) are then liable for elimination by the judges on the results shows an hour later. All six dancers perform a solo, after which the judges one male and one female contestant (the two first shows they eliminate four dancers). If the eliminated dancers are not from the same couple, their respective partners form a new pair for the following week's performances. Once field of dancers is narrowed down to the top 12, permanent partnerships dissolve and contestants draw their new partners and two dance styles from a hat each week. The judges no longer have any say in the elimination process; viwers call in to vote for their favorite individual dancer, and the male and the female with the lowest votes are eliminated each week.
