The best undiscovered dancing talent the U.S. has to offer will endure a grueling 12-week competition to become America's No. 1 dancer.

The series, produced by 19 Entertainment Ltd. and dick clark productions, will have its second season premiere Thursday, May 25 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Season one winner Nick Lazzarini and runner-up Melody Lacayanga are currently part of Mark Meismer's professional dance company, Evolution, which is the first of its kind on the West Coast.

With Lauren Sanchez expected to give birth during the run of production, Cat Deeley, one of the leading television hosts in the UK, has been named to host the second season of the hit series. Deeley has won many awards for her work on "CD: UK Live," on which she has appeared for the last six years; her three years on "SM: TV Live"; and many shows for the MTV UK, BBC and ITV networks.
