Live To Dance – Paula Abdul and Her Experts Choose the Semifinalists

One really good thing about Paula Abdul’s new CBS dance competition show, Live to Dance? The show’s limited run (only about 6 hours) means that Tuesday’s premiere competed the audition phase of the series.

Last night, the cast of experts, including Paula Abdul, Kimberly Wyatt and Travis Payne moved on to choosing the semi-finalists. Some of the acts went straight through to the semis. four acts were chosen to come back for a wild card round. Taking a page from the latest season of So You Think You Can Dance, the experts delivered the news to the acts in person.

Kids dance troupe, Inside the Box, married ballet dancers, White Tree Fine Art, male street dancers, Theatrix and precocious 11 year old Kendall Glover were all chosen to come back to perform again.

The experts chose Kendall to move on (I think Paula sees herself as a kid in Kendall). The remaining 3 acts will be chosen by viewer phone vote (My money is on the ballet couple advancing).

The live semi-final round begins Wed. January 12. After the jump, check out a list and video of Live to Dance semi-finalists:

Austen Acevedo
Jittin Genius
D’Angelo & Amanda
Bev and Hap
Chi-town Finest Breakers
The Vibe

Either White Tree Fine Art, Inside the Box, or Theatrix will move on, depending on viewer votes.
