Joey Lawrence is hosting a new dance show for TLC

Joey on Dancing with the StarsTLC has a new competition series called Master of Dance (worst title ever). The show will test dancers' skills by changing the song mid-performance to measure the breadth of their repertoire and the level of their creativity. This sounds a little too much like Freezedance but for prize money. The grand prise is $50,000 to be exact.

Joey Lawrence will host and there will be three judges: Lucinda Dickey (Solid Gold, Breakin'), Tyce Diorio (choreographer on So You Think You Can Dance), and Loni Love (comedienne voted one of Comedy Central's Top 20 Comics to Watch in 2008).

"The winner of this show will be that person at the wedding or party that always has the right moves and knows every popular dance. We're looking for real people with real skills to get on stage and just have fun," explains producer Craig Piligian. From the sound of it, I don't think this show will featuring professional dancers. But, I'm willing to give this a shot because it's produced by Pilgrim Films & Television, the same people who gave us Dirty Jobs and American Chopper. What do you think?

Master of Dance premieres Sunday, June 8th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

WOW -- Lucinda Dickey! She may not have been the best actress in the world, but "Breakin'" is an absolute classic. It will be cool to see her back in the public eye again, even if it's on a cheesy crap-fest like this.
