#Throwback” – Each of the final eight teams chooses their favorite era to inspire the creation of an original performance. From ancient Egypt through present day, teams are pushed out of their comfort zones as they perform routines to songs such as “Livin’ La Vida Loca” (Ricky Martin), “These Boots Are Made for Walkin’” (The Supremes), “Hypnotize” (The Notorious B.I.G.) and more, on COME DANCE WITH ME Friday, May 20 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, and available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+*.

COME DANCE WITH ME features exceptionally talented young dancers from across the country who invite one untrained family member who has supported their dance dreams to be their partner, for a chance to strut their stuff for a grand prize. Throughout the season, the teams will learn different dance routines, from hip hop and ballroom to contemporary and theatrical, among others, and will tackle a fierce new performance each week in hopes of earning top scores from the judges and continuing in the competition. At the end of every episode, the two lowest-scoring teams will battle each other in a freestyle dance-off, as the judges determine which team will be eliminated and which will advance. The kid/parent teams perform to hit songs for some of the biggest names in dance, the series judges: Jenna Dewan, Dexter Mayfield and Tricia Miranda. GRAMMY® Award-winning songwriter Philip Lawrence hosts the series.
