I agree Frodo, they dance beautifully together

Frodo you've got an echo

I would put Victoria in the dance off against either Michael or Lisa with Victoria to get on her bike!

I don't think Denise is a ringer. She's not done ballroom dancing before. She has danced in her job, but so have Kimberly and Nicky. She went to stage school when she was a kid ... maybe some of the actresses did too, they certainly started as kids. I like her

lol LN, Vicky definitely to get on her bike, I think she and Brendan will be relieved

I hope it is Vicky and Michael/Lisa and not someone who just had an off day

If Victoria doesn't go tonight it will be very unfair, she was awkward and uncomfortable to watch. I think it would be cruel to have her in another week and put her through another horrible performance (not to mention cruel to the audience!).

Michael's argentine tango was worse than Colin's, I've got the same criticism to make - where was the intricate footwork that is characteristic of an ARGENTINE tango? Both Michael & Colin relied on their ability to lift their partners to disguise lack of content, but at least Colin had the excuse of dancing his AT MUCH earlier in the series. I fear for Michael in coming weeks, he doesn't have many ballroom dances left.

Lisa was actually better than I thought / feared she would be. I was quite angry with the judges comment about it lacking 'energy', I was really dreading her coming out and doing her big fun facial expressions and ruining the romantic mood. She did a decent job with a difficult dance.

Louis - WHAT are the judges on?! I agree with their point about performing more but was that dance worse than Michael, Lisa, Kimberley and Nicky?! It should have been 8/10 at least. I find the marking completely inconsistent, Louis is clearly in the top 3 dancers and yet gets continuously marked down. Then Len speaks up for Michael missing a fundamental element of his dance basically saying that the male celebs aren't expected to lead the female pros.
Flavia needs to insist on traditional music and choreography for their next dance, and really get Louis to emote a bit more. That's the only way they'll ever satisfy the judges.

Nicky hugely over marked too. Coming after Denise's "best charleston ever" it was especially obvious.

Agree with most of what you say Xine.

Yes of course Vicky should go - she knows it too! Did you hear her say 'Don't vote for me'.

I found myself more out of sync with the judges than I have been all series. As I've said before I'm not very hot on the Charleston (and I'm not that mad on Nicky) but I certainly didn't think it was that good. Karen and Ian did a bit of Charleston in ITT this week  - just to demonstrate the dance - and without a story or stylistic tricks  - made it look really fun and whacky.

And although Kimbers is one of my favourites I couldn't see why her tango was so good compared to Louis' Paso.

Yeah 'lacking energy'? Isn't the rumba supposed to be the romantic, sultry one? I thought she did a pretty good job.

And  - I know this will sound awful - but just like Chelseeeeee's huge fake knockers stopped her short of ever looking like a real dancer for me (I know, I know, it shouldn't) Dani's little legs - however fast and precise (and they are) can't help but put me in mind of dainty piggy trotters. Threre I've said it!

Im bad!

Did anyone see chelsee on pointless celebrities yesterday. It was a strictly special. She was paired with James Jordan, who is supercompetitive. Erm.... She had to double check the purpose of the game.

Raffo caught the end of it and told me about Chelseeeee. Not the brightest button in the box. Oh dear, sigh, etc. I reckon she's poorly educated rather than super dim, and hope I'm not being too charitable....

25/11/2012 at 17:20
And has no desire to improve her education because it gives her a usp

Nicky was floppy, he's got real 'spaghetti arms' which I find very distracting. I keep comparing the male celeb charlestons with Matt Baker's circus-themed charleston, I don't think there has been one to match it yet.

I'm really losing patience with the two-tier marking system the judges seem to be using. IMO, they mark Denise, Louis and Kimberley according to one set of criteria and the others to a different set of criteria. I really don't understand why they are so harsh with Louis and Kimba especially, and yet gloss over criticism of say Lisa. Louis might rely on technique to lift is performance but the opposite is true of Lisa and she is not marked appropriately at all.

I caught the last 5 minutes of Pointless too. I always think Chelseeeeee is about 16 by the way she acts, I forget that she's a grown woman!

TESS looks like she's escaped from Grease
25/11/2012 at 19:45
Wow - right bottom two shocker!
25/11/2012 at 19:45
Right as in correct, btw.

gold star Frodo
The right time for Victoria to go and I think both she and Brendan are relieved not to have to climb the training moutain again on Monday

I also Chelsee on Pointless - more than half way through "do we have to find the answer with the least number of points then? Bless - she really didn't have a clue but there is something very likeable about her. .
