Didn't see them on ITT but it did come over as sulky and sour grapes in the segment prior to the dance off..........

In some ways he came across quite well on ITT, saying Craig was unfair with Nicky's Mark and it deserved more etc but it sort of felt like damage limitation from him to me, as if he knew he had come across badly on Sunday and was trying to redeem himself?  Maybe I am reading stuff into it that isn't there as I do actually quite like James, think he is a bit of a hoot sometimes and genuinely does seem to care for his partners (except maybe Georgina!)

Some have criticised him for his poor choreography, the fact that it is often the same and to be fair I had noticed that in a couple of his ballrooms.  Artem and Vincent are brilliant at using innovative choregraphy

Yes, I agree about the choreography. I think robin's choreography for Lisa has been very clever, and Flavia has been very careful how much she uses Louis' raw power and tricks. Her "armography" was very good in the rumba. He clearly respects her, and I was amazed at how well it danced. Or maybe I was just distracted by his amazing arms.....

He really is extremely elegant

mmm ... elegant?? .... that's a new way of describing it  

Karen said last night that it was one of the best male rumba's she has seen on Strictly.

TS is fed up of writing Christmas cards and may tootle off to youtube for a bit of the 'elegant' Louis - just to check out his arms of course    Only opened my laptop to check and address!?

Of course you did 

He's not my type but I do adore watching his body in action to speak of course!

Louis does have lovely arms but I'm still distracted by his freakishly huge hands! I'm surprised no one has had a go at him about them because they can look a bit ungainly

I have bought some posh chocolates for Saturday and if it's still cold I may get some mulled wine on the go  (btw I LOVE the new Xmas smileys!!!)

Bad PR ....  Watched them in training last night and actually felt a bit sorry for them as I think they realise however hard they train and however fab their dance is, they are certainly not in for the win.

I'm in a real conundrum re Lisa as I do love watching them but really hope in a way they are in the bottom two as the uproar it would cause if she is the 'reason' one of the faves go out will be horrible?  I wouldn't be majorly disappointed if she won but I feel the backlash would be awful for them, but I suppose it would be tempered by the fact that they were popular enough to win?  I don't know ... 

My favourite has changed again to Louis  (after I re-watched their fusion!)  But didn't think his jive was looking too good on ITT though 

I love Christmas smileys too

Well judging by the training Ian Waite was looking at, Dani's AT could be car crash. Is Vincent really going to be dragging her round the floor while she's on tip toes?

Most of the other dances look OK, I'm sure Louis has time to sort out his jive

Oh and thanks for the article TopSec!

14/12/2012 at 14:09

Interesting article TopSec - quite curious as to why both Johny Vaughan and Andrew LW "suddenly" started treating her so badly..............seems a little odd as they are pally previously

I'm 100% with you re the Lisa conundrum - couldn't have put it better and still dont' know which way to swing so to speak 

14/12/2012 at 19:45

Ahh two dances at last - how exciting!  

I'm going to be out on Saturday night, I hope that BBC are as quick at uploading the dance clips to iPlayer as they were last week so I can watch them on my way home.

Hello, anyone watching? I have Belgian chocolates

Evening LN
I want the judges to critique Lisa's dance like they do the others rather than just going on about how full of life the dance was ... if she dances like she did last week she should go tonight. I do really like them, but last week they were clearly not as good as the others ...

I'm here but 5 mins behind!! Have French bread, p??t??, cheese and wine - yummy!!
15/12/2012 at 18:42
We are waiting for the oven to heat for dinner so resisting nibbles ...
15/12/2012 at 18:44
Dani was good.
15/12/2012 at 18:46

Good, not on my own!

That was a bit underwhelming...

15/12/2012 at 18:48
Yes, it was good but not great. I did like the lifts though and they do make a lovely couple

Ooh, Artem in the background
