Each week, the experts will select one act to advance and the fans will select a second act.

After a total of three LIVE semi-final episodes, the six dance acts that have advanced will compete against one another in the final round. Following the final performances, fans will then have the opportunity to cast their vote for the winner of LIVE TO DANCE, which will be announced LIVE during the season finale, on Wednesday, Feb. 9 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT). The winner will be awarded a $500,000 prize.
