Strictly Week Eight Review

Well that was a shock elimination in week seven. Aston and Janette will be dearly missed. I would loved to have seen them dance in Blackpool.

Here is my favorite dance from them .

The heat is on to see who will make it to Blackpool…

Here are my thoughts on Strictly Week Eight

Alexandra and Gorka danced the Argentine Tango to Mi Confession by Gotan Project

2017-11-11 19.34.07.jpg

An outstanding performance. Alexandra and Gorka are the perfect partnership this series of Strictly. The best Argentine Tango I have seen on Strictly from a celebrity. The choreography was amazing.

Debbie and Giovanni danced the Salsa to I Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You by Boys Town Gang

2017-11-11 19.56.30.jpg

We could not take our eyes off them. Debbie is one fearless lady, the ways she throws herself into the lifts.

Gemma and Aljaz danced the Viennese Waltz to You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me by Brenda Lee

2017-11-11 19.25.44.jpg

A beautiful couple and a beautiful song and dance despite Gemma slipping out of her shoe mid way through the dance. She handled it like a pro.

Mollie and AJ danced the Paso Doble to Layla by Derek and the Dominoes

This dance has the intensity and drama . You can see Mollie is working hard and putting 100% into the dance.

Ruth and Anton danced the Foxtrot to Mack The Knife by Bobby Darin

2017-11-11 19.11.59.jpg

This wasn’t a foxtrot like I am familiar with . I expected a slow foxtrot with slows  but I did enjoy the opening.

Susan and Kevin danced the Tango to Firework by Katy Perry

2017-11-11 18.52.31.jpg

Susan looked beautiful in red tonight. Another great routine by Kevin. Susan’s footwork was good. Well done Susan.

Davood and Nadiya danced the Charleston to The Lambeth Walk by The Pasadena Roof Orchestra

Davood has improved so much since his first dance. Loved their cheeky Charleston. Full on uplifting routine that he executed very well. They received two well deserved 10’s. They have to dance in Blackpool.

Joe and Katya danced the Rumba to One by U2 and Mary J. Blige

2017-11-11 19.00.46.jpg

A tough dance for Joe as a male celebrity.  Joe led Katya well throughout the dance. Loved the choreography .

Jonnie and Oti danced the Foxtrot to Someone Like You by Adele

2017-11-11 19.48.56.jpg

Loved  the story of the dance and the song. Jonnie is an inspiration and doing well on his Strictly journey.

The Leaderboard Week Eight !
