Zee Telugu’s dance reality show Aata Juniors is making a comeback to the channel starting this weekend. It provides a platform for those who aspire to make their dreams come true in line with the channel’s brand philosophy “Aarambham Okka Aduguthone”. From August 25, viewers will witness the talented little stars battle it out to win the title of Zee Telugu’s Aata Junior. It will be telecast on Zee Telugu and Zee Telugu HD, between 9 pm and 10 pm, every Saturday and Sunday.
This time, it chose 12 out of thousands of children who participated in auditions that were conducted across Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, along with videos shared for online auditions from Bengaluru and Chennai.
Hosted by anchor Ravi, the popular host from Zee Telugu, the highlight of this season is the introduction of the new format that includes six choreographers, six super-dancers and the 12 hand-picked contestants, where each contestant will be paired with a choreographer and super-dancer, to help each of them make the most of this platform. The teams will be judged by actress Lakshmi Manchu and Nataraj Master, the choreographer, dancer and actor. Nataraj will consider the stage presence of a performer, the entertainment quotient and dance technicalities, while a 12-member grand jury panel will mentor the contestants.
The contestants will have the opportunity to present themselves in front of a walk-in celebrity judge every episode, with Tamannah Bhatia in the first two episodes. The teams will contest each other across different theme-based rounds each week, before the finalists fight for the ultimate Aata Junior trophy in the Grand Finale.
