We said goodbye to Davood and Nadiya in Musicals Week.
The remaining five couples danced their hearts out for a place in the Strictly Come Dancing Final 2017.
Each couple performed two dances in the semi-final.
Salsa to Finally by Cece Peniston
A red hot Salsa from a red hot couple. That routine was on fire. The lifts were amazing. Alexandra is a fierce lady who puts 100% into every performance.
Viennese Waltz to Tina Arena’s version of R.E.M’S Everybody Hurts
There is no denying that Alexandra can dance. I do hope they are not in the dance off after those amazing performances. They deserve to be in the final.
Foxtrot to Isn’t She Lovely by Stevie Wonder
Isn’t she lovely … this dance was made for Debbie and Giovanni. A Hollywood style foxtrot. Debbie is such a graceful and elegant lady. A lovely performance.
Jive to I’m So Excited by The Pointer Sisters
An energetic Jive . Debbie smiles throughout her dances no matter how challenging.
American Smooth to Have You Met Miss Jones by Robbie Williams
A sophisticated dance which oozed style . Katya creates such outstanding routines and The lifts were smooth. Joe delivers every time.
Trending Hair Styles for Party Season
With party season just around the corner, have you decided your look yet? If you haven’t, don’t get anxious as I make this festive season easier for you by introducing some of the trendiest hairstyles for this party season.
2.Want to look flawless with the least bit of effort? Go for the lazy curls instead. All you have to do is use your curling iron and twist the ends of your hair with it to achieve this lusciously soft curl. Look at how Kendall Jenner is flaunting her hair, this could be you on the party night!
3.What is even trendier this season? Short hair and beach waves! Since most the clothes in party season are full of sequence and bright bold colors, you really don’t want to overdo your look, so get on board with the less is more approach, and get those bouncy beach waves instead. For variations, you can always try twisting your front bangs or even braiding them!
4.Let’s not forget our savior? The top knot buns are also hot trend this season. But since it’s the festive season, play around with your hair and opt for a braided up d. There are plenty of tutorials available online that you can learn from, and in case you fail worry not because our very next hairstyle is ‘I woke up like this’ believe it or not but messy hair are true breadwinners for the hair styling industries because they are effortless and they look amazing on almost everyone!
Enjoy the party season.
The fabulous Five couples danced for a place in the Semi-Final.
Here are my thoughts on Musicals Week .
Alexandra and Gorka danced the Charleston to Supercalifragillistic from Mary Poppins
A show stopping performance . The swivels were so precise. Alexandra is a natural performer.
Debbie and Giovanni danced the American Smooth to Memory from Cats
One Word PURRRRFECT!!! Giovanni choreographed to showcase Debbie’s strengths. A memorable routine that will remain with us for a long time.
Davood and Nadiya danced the Argentine Tango to The Phantom of the Opera
What a captivating couple . This is a difficult dance for the male celebs . Davood got the characterization of the dance but did not appear as confident at leading Nadiya , but it was still a dramatic powerful performance.
Gemma and Aljaz danced the Quickstep to Hello Dolly! from Hello Dolly
Well hello Gemma! Gemma looked amazing . A hollywood style performance. Aljaz pulled out all the stops again with his choreography.
Joe and Katya danced the Samba to Money Monday from Cabaret
Loved everything about this dance , it really drew you in . From Katya’s clever choreography to Joe’s facial expressions were class. Joe and Katya deserve to be in the final. He has progressed beautifully throughout his Strictly journey.
Mollie and AJ danced the Rumba to I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserables
Loved the romantic / sweet story of the dance. This dance had more of a contemporary feel . Beautiful. Made me feel 16 again. 💞
