Strictly Blackpool Week Review

It’s Blackpool week on Strictly!!


What a spectacular opening to the show 

They all lit up the Blackpool Tower Ballroom with that circus themed opening dance.

Here are my thoughts on Strictly in Blackpool 

Alexandra and Gorka danced the Quickstep to The Gold Diggers Song (We’re In The Money) from ’42nd Street

Alexandra and Gorka struck gold with this amazing routine. Their floor craft was excellent  They looked like two stars form a Hollywood film.  A joyous dance to watch. A class act!

Debbie and Giovanni danced the Samba to Spice Girls Medley (Wannabe/ Who Do You Think You Are)

Debbie is not as comfortable in this dance. I feel maybe Debbie is concentrating so much on getting everything perfect, she is not allowing herself to loosen up and feel the dance more. The samba rolls were excellent . Debbie is still a great dancer and it was an enjoyable performance.

Gemma and Aljaz danced the American Smooth to Downtown by Petula Clark

Gemma and Aljaz’s American Smooth was exquisite. Beautiful, graceful and smooth. A gorgeous song choice, routine and Gemma’s topline …gorgeous.

Mollie and AJ danced the Charleston to Wings by Little Mix

Mollie looked sensational in white .They did some difficult lifts. They had good energy from beginning to end.

Susan and Kevin danced the Paso Doble to Scott & Fran’s Paso Doble from ‘ Strictly Ballroom’

Kevin has been waiting a long time to bring his approach on the Paso Doble from the final scene of the film “Strictly Ballroom” to the Strictly Come Dancing Ballroom. Kevin never fails to deliver. They looked fabulous. It was a good attempt for Susan . We could see how proud Susan was to dance in the Tower Ballroom in Blackpool.

Davood and Nadiya danced the Paso Doble to Live and Let Die by Paul McCartney and Wings

A powerful, passionate Paso Doble and the chemistry phew! Davood got into the James Bond character from the off. Mission accomplished Mr.Ghadami !

Joe and Katya danced the Salsa to Ride On Time by Black Box

Joe and Katya brought the fun factor to Blackpool and wow what a routine . The armography and the complex lifts were impressive. Joe is working hard and it is paying off.

Jonnie and Oti danced the Tango to Sweet Dreams by Eurythmics

Jonnie and Oti looked amazing. A great song choice and loved the choreography. Jonnie was focused throughout the dance. Liked the swift head movements.
