The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is set to launch a talent show to search for the person who has dance moves to rival those of late pop legend Michael Jackson.

The show hopes to discover the next King of Pop by judging the moves of the "Thriller" star's biggest fans and the wannabe Jacksons will have to prove themselves to some very important people including members of the superstar's family, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The broadcaster is also trying to sign Jackson's siblings Jermaine or La Toya to act as judges on the series, as the pair has already won over the locals with stints on British "Celebrity Big Brother".

"People are so passionate about Michael it makes sense to build a talent show devoted to him and his incredible performances," said a source.

"And given that his family played such a huge part in his life, it makes sense for one of them to a judge. Jermaine, Janet or La Toya would be brilliant," the source added.

A BBC spokeswoman was quoted as saying: "We are currently in advanced discussions about commissioning a new entertainment show, which will seek to find Britain's most talented dancer, who can move like the legendary Michael Jackson."
