I love dance on TV but this show was boring, boring, boring. First of all, Michael Flatley is the worst host ever. That voice! It's like Lawrence Welk was reincarnated to host this show. Terrible choice, Nigel, even if he is a dance icon.
Secondly...who are these judges? I get that they are famous in the world of dance but for an average American audience? Snoozeville. And since I don't really know the "Superstars", with the exceptions of the ones I've already seen on SYTYCD, I'm not at all invested in them. As a result, I'm not interested in how they perform or which country wins.
Finally, most of these dance styles are BORING. Irish dance? Sorry, not interested. The Indian dances, both the Bollywood and traditional did nothing for me. The Shaolin monks were cool though.
I predict this show will TANK in the ratings. It looked like something that would be watched in Europe or Australia. I don't think it will appeal to American audiences.
