Dance Machine premiered on ABC on June 27, 2008. Each episode features six real people from all walks of life who will face off against each other in a series of one-on-one dance offs to the most popular songs of all time. Imagine a 70-year-old grandmother in a dance off with a 25 year-old gravedigger, to the tune of Michael Jackson's "Thriller." Throughout the course of the night contestants will be eliminated by voters in the studio audience. By the end of the evening, just two finalists will be left to challenge each other for the honor of being crowned that night's "Dance Machine" - and to take home the $100,000 cash prize.
