Fantastic Talent Show...........................
23 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Where else will you see such unbelievably good talent? It blows me away every episode! The talent and effort that is displayed by these dancers is sometimes jaw-dropping it is so good.

Also as a bonus you get the best efforts of some incredibly talented choreographers.

In a way, the talent level is a drawback. With every contestant so talented, how can you choose? I am afraid that the audience voting will just relegate this to a personality contest with many people voting for who they like or who has the cutest smile. I hope it can simply vote down to the greatest dance ability for a winner, but unfortunately that is just not how us humans (myself included) tend to vote sometimes.

Despite numerous flaws, this show is enthusiastic and very watchable and is to be highly recommended.
