Wednesday night saw the finale of Paula Abdul’s new show ‘Live to Dance.’ Did you see it? Probably not, according to the rating numbers. Her show started out showing some decent numbers, but ended up falling short in the long run, with only 4.8 million tuning in for the finale. No official word from CBS on the shows status, but sources say that we just witnessed the first and last season of the dance show.
The couple that did win the show were mighty cute though! No, I wasn’t one of the 4.8 million who tuned in Wednesday night, but thanks to the power of the internet, I got to see for myself the youngsters that took the $500,000 prize, and I have to say, this duo really did a great job. Unlike most of the kids you see dancing, this team really didn’t have the movements of children, and my guess is will do pretty well for themselves in the dancing world. The Miami youngsters, D’Angelo Castro and Amanda Carbajales (9 and 10 years old), when asked how they were going to celebrate their win, said they were going to a friends house to play in the pool. The true spirit of the child lives on! I have included a video below of the kid’s audition for the show, see for yourselves how great (and cute) they really are!
In the meantime, with Paula’s show heading to cancellation, that does in fact free her up for other endeavors, maybe filling one of those empty spots on Cowell’s X-Factor? Simon Cowell expressed that Paula could be in the running a few days ago, however was quick to state there are many people vying for that position as well. The judging panel for the show is not expected to be announced for several weeks however, so we will just have to wait and see.
So, watch the video below, and let us know what you think about these two young dancers. Also, would you like to see Paula and Simon reunited at the judging panel? Leave us a comment, and be sure to join us for all the fun in the forum HERE!
