In last night's episode, the "Live to Dance" experts selected 17 of the 18 dance acts who will compete for the $500,000 prize on the new reality-competition series. The identity of the 18th cast member, who will be selected by fans through voting, will be announced during next week's episode airing on Wednesday, January 12 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on CBS. Paula Abdul serves as executive producer, mentor and lead expert of the series.

Starting Wednesday, January 12, the first six dance acts will compete against each other live on CBS in the first semi-final episode with two acts advancing—one chosen by the experts and one chosen by fans. After a total of three semi-final episodes, the six dance acts that have advanced will compete against one another in one final round. Following the final performances, fans will vote for the winner of "Live to Dance," which will be announced LIVE during the season finale, on Wednesday, February 9 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT).
