Dance like Michael Jackson, and perform in front of his folks!

Michael Jackson fans can compete for the chance to dance in front of his family.

New TV show 'Move Like Michael Jackson' will start filming in the UK later this month and contestants will battle it out for the chance to star in an official tribute concert for the late pop star in front of the Jackson family.

A spokesman for the BBC3 series said: "The winner won't necessarily be the dancer who mimics Michael Jackson's choreography, but rather someone who can move like him, creating and inventing iconic steps and styles."

Auditions will begin in the next few weeks in front of Mark Summers, the choreographer who chose the dance group for the singer's sold-out 'This Is It' London shows.

Once the thousands of contenders have been cut down, 16 finalists will be reduced to six by Michael's brother Jermaine, Mark and another as-yet unnamed judge.
