The Greatest Dancer 2020 finalists unveiled as fans react to brutal eliminations
The finalists for The Greatest Dancer 2020 have at last been revealed.
The four acts confirmed for next's week's grand final were unveiled in tonight's semi-final.
Solo dancer Harrison, ballroom dancers Michael & Jowita, child performers Lily & Joseph, and dance troupe Dancepoint were revealed as the lucky acts who have advanced through to next Saturday's final.
Sadly, those being sent home included Cheryl's act Brothers of Dance and Matthew Morrison's solo dancer Hannah, but the dance captains were full of praise for their eliminated acts.
Hannah commented: "I feel so privileged to have this experience, I've had the time of my life."
Meanwhile, Cheryl said she "adored" being the dance captain for the Brothers of Dance.
