Afro Dance duo Sam & Mash dance to GURU’s music on BBC’s ‘The Greatest Dancer’



Afro Dance duo Sam & Mash put the music of Ghanaian Hiplife musician Guru and Grammy-nominated Nigerian singer, Burna Boy in the spotlight during their performance on the BBC One’s dance talent show “The Greatest Dancer”.

Sam (British-Ghanaian) and Mash (British-Nigerian) danced to Burna Boy’s “Anybody” and later switched it up to Guru’s “Karaoke”  which got the judges and crowd dancing. Sadly they didn’t impress the judges enough to advance in the competition.

Former Strictly Come Dancing champion and former judge Alesha Dixon and street dance group Diversity’s Jordan Banjo will return as hosts for the second series, a co-production for BBC One between creator Syco Entertainment and Thames (part of FremantleMedia UK), which will showcase some incredible auditions, amazing talent and lots of surprises as dancers give the performance of their lives every Saturday night. The show will see dancers of all ages and dance styles compete to win £50,000 and a chance to perform on Strictly Come Dancing.

Leading the charge to discover The Greatest Dancer for series two are four superstar Dance Captains: multi-platinum-selling singer Cheryl; Broadway and Glee star Matthew Morrison; Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse and the newest member to the team, American pop star, dancer and choreographer to the stars, Todrick Hall.

Also joining The Greatest Dancer team this year is award-winning professional dancer and Love Island 2019 finalist Curtis Pritchard, who will be welcoming hopefuls in reception to The Greatest Dancer studio.

Get ready to see talent from across the world of dance from ballet to jazz, street to ballroom, contemporary to disco as they prepare for the biggest audition of their lives.The Greatest Dancer, win £50,000 and perform as a very special guest on Strictly Come Dancing.

Guru is one of the finest hit makers in Africa and his song “Karaoke” is very popular in francophone countries and some european countries so it wasn’t a big surprise to see the contestants dance to that particular song on the show.
