The eight couples performed for their chance to dance in the Tower Ballroom in Blackpool next week.
Claudia and Aj danced the Viennese Waltz to ‘Breakaway’ by Kelly Clarkson
What a beautiful and graceful Viennese Waltz. They are adorable to watch. The musicality and choreography was heart stirring. A beautiful love story.
Daisy and Aljaz danced the Salsa to ‘Groove is in the heart’ by Deee-Lite
They were in the groove tonight . It was another full on routine . The lifts were great. Loved the retro 70’s theme. I don’t think it was Daisy’s best dance but Daisy is still an excellent dancer .
Danny and Oti danced the Argentine Tango to ‘I heard it through the grapevine’ by Marvin Gaye
Honey Honey I know… I would not be letting Danny go anywhere after that Argentine Tango. The chemistry between Oti and Danny was electrifying. The routine was clean and precise. This couple have to be in Blackpool but more importantly in the FINAL!!!
Ed and Katya danced the Salsa to ‘Gangnam Style’ by Psy
Katya’s choreography never disappoints each week, it just gets better. So imaginative. The lifts were just as terifying to watch as the last time . It was full of energy and surprising moments. The audience absolutely loved it. But has Ed abd Katya done enough to secure their place in Blackpool ? I do believe so 😀
Greg and Natalie danced the Paso Doble to ‘Tamacun’ by Rodrigo y Gabriela
Loved the Spanish theme of this dance with Natalie as the flamenco dancer. Greg was so much more confident this week. He really got into the character of the dance and put everything into it. He had the shaping. A powerful paso!
Judge Rinder and Oksana danced the Foxtrot to ‘You make me feel so young’ by Harry Connick Jr
You make me feel so full of joy , when I watch you Judge Rinder. It is easy to see how much dancing means to him and what it would mean to dance in Blackpool. His timing was good . He glided effortlessly accross the floor with such style . A great performance.
Louise and Kevin danced the American Smooth to ‘Big Spender’ by Shirley Bassey
I would watch this again and again. It had glitz and glamour, what Strictly is all about. Louise looked in her element throughout this dance. It brought out her sassy side . A brilliant performance . A real show stopper!
Ore and Joanne danced the Rumba to ‘Ordinary People’ by John Legend
Such a sensual dance from Ore and Joanne. It was performed with so much tenderness . Ore’s timing was perfect in such a technically difficult dance. His arms were gorgeous. Ore is a beautiful dancer and a beautiful dance. Almost brought me to tears.
