After 5 weeks of stiff competition, the highly anticipated final of Got to Dance took place in Olympia’s Grand Hall.
Steadicam operator Dominic Jackson used a P+S Freestyle 3D rig with Sony P1 cameras, for which Broadcast RF supplied a dual-SDI video link as well as full RF rig and camera control.
This allowed the steadicam to work from anywhere inside the Olympia’s Grand Hall with the vision and 3D engineers remote controlling the rig (convergence and IA) and cameras (full Sony RCP control) from the OB truck.
As the final of the series 3 of Got to Dance took place the ten finalists prepared for the battle of the dances as they all took to the stage for what could have been their last dance, doing their best to win the publics votes, only three could go through to the final dance off.
The public votes decided who the three finalists would be. Giving them one last chance to prove themselves worthy of winning the title and the £250.000 prize money. The lucky three were Prodijig, Tayluer and Elliott and Fear Of The Unknown, giving them one final chance to prove themselves to the judges and the public. Each competitor then performed the semi-final dance that won them their places in the final.
After voting again for the favourite, the deciding vote was made, Prodijig were crowned the winners of 2012’s Got to Dance competition, they were a one of a kind dance group with their unique blend of hip hop and Irish dancing. It was something never seen before on any of the previous series and was a welcome change for both judges and viewers alike.
