The BBC is planning to search Britain for a superstar dancer who can emulate Michael for a new talent show.
A spokeswoman said; ”We are currently in advanced discussions about commissioning a new entertainment show, which will seek to find Britain’s most talented dancer, who can move like the legendary Michael Jackson.”
The corporation will hunt for those who can master Michael’s often highly technical moonwalks and lightning spins.
It is not thought that hopefuls would need to sing like Michael for the show, which would potentially be called ‘Move Like Michael Jackson’.
The BBC added that at this stage it could not confirm the format, any judge or judges, transmission times or what channel the show might be on.
