Fraggle and Brooks - I'm with both of you on the exhibition dance! Less gussets and more dancing please!

Very pleased with the results
11/12/2011 at 19:30
I knew the result but still sad about Holly going, I think she has a lovely personality and did some amazing dances ... and no more Artem It also means more Jason being earnest ...

Think that was a fair result from their performances last night.

I think I've worked out why I didn't like Jason's AT - it was down to Kristinas gusset flashing lace "dress"

sad Holly's gone, as I think their showdance would have been amazing. I think Chelseees showdance should be great, and hopefully Aliona will do something better than the one she did for Matt last year.

sdaly I will be at in-laws next saturday, so I'm not sure we'll be able to watch it

Ok so the final many of us had suspected for some time.

I hadn't been sure recently if Jason would hold onto the third place but he deserved it on Semi night.

 It will all come down to the showdance I suspect. Kristina will choreograph it well I am sure and will probably go for a west-end showbiz style dance, a bit like Camilla did with Tom.

 This may be a challenge for Aliona and not sure about Pasha but lets see.

 As it stands today I have to admit I would vote for Harry but lets see what happens in the final.

Chelsee is dancing really well but she just winds me up. They all treat her like a kid, probably because she acts like one but she's 22 or 23 I think, certainly not 16.

OK, I know that Jason was the better dancer so technically it's the right result but I'm really going to miss Holly and Artem. Good dances and great banter, sigh

I think I'll have to brace myself for Kristina's showdance, please don't make it a gusset flashing one!

I hope either Harry or Chelsee win, I'd probably prefer it to be Chelsee but I'll try to be objective next week.

Can't believe my 2 votes didn't swing it for Hartem!

PS: well done Sharkie on your age-graded 100m victory!!!

Totally agree about that showdance thing. It's just acrobatics. Reminds of a weird version of Swan Lake someone sent me a link to - Chinese State ballet I think. One foot pirouetting on someone else's head - very clever as acrobatics go, but nothing to do with Tchaikovsky or ballet. Yuck. Give me Sylvie Guillem any day.

It IS odd that Chelz is referred to as being 'very young' .... I think she's the same age (or near enough) as Harry ffs. She is sweet enough - but a bit of a dimmie. 'Vertically challenged' was beyond her. At least she admitted it I guess. But you don't have to be stoopid just 'cos your a working class Manc.*

Yeah - shame about Holly and Artem. I liked what he said about being possibly a bit over tough in rehearsal. I have really liked his choreography for Holly.

Aw shucks Little Nemo - ta. Found out by chance when I opened a bit of Serpie mail. It's a kind of nice early Christmas present and cheered me up no end!

Anyone else think Len is rooting for Harry? 

* NB I'm a working class Manc.

Ooh congrats Sharkie

I don't really mind who wins as long as it's Harry or Chelsee ... I reckon it will be down to the show dance, will be good, but sounds like most people are out next Saturday ... luckily I do not have a social life
11/12/2011 at 22:07

We've got the worst kind of social engagement - we're paying and we would rather do without it! Still, the restaurant is booked for 8.30 so we should be able to see quite a bit, then iplayer the rest on Sunday. After the none negotiable ritual of Sunday morning track has been observed of course.

 Don't worry B, it's so passe darling to insist on going out on Saturday night.

 Do we have to put up with the disaster areas of Lobbo, the Curry Monster and Do-lally Dell'Olio next week?

11/12/2011 at 22:54
B - I just realised I'm out next Saturday for Xmas party and I'm really upset that I'm going to miss watching the final live. I think that makes me the saddest of all
11/12/2011 at 23:00
B - I don't have a social life either, so I'll be here
11/12/2011 at 23:02
Well, as I thought

God I just hate those bloody showdances they do, in my mind a lot of show and not much dance! I hope the professionals look at what has won in the past and what has not worked.

We have zero social life too so will be watching, live too as we fly back on Thursday

Wouldn't want to be wasting a tenner on who will win though!
11/12/2011 at 23:05

I'll be here! Will probably still be decorating my tree, hopefully with the fire going and some mulled wine. I'll need it to get through Eggwina and Nancy again!

12/12/2011 at 09:16

It was a great semi-final with the weakest dancers going out, I felt. I agee that Holly's Charleston outfit was unflattering, but I loved the wacky specs on Artem, and I wish I had Aliona's torso!!! After Jason's Samba I thought there was a possibility that he might go out, but the AT was superb.

 I feel Harry was the best overall - he's better at expressing emotion through the dance now, which he didn't seem able to do before.

Chelsee's very good too, but for me, Harry has the edge over her.

12/12/2011 at 10:01
Oh good a select little group watching live on Saturday

Will Nancy and the others really come back? Do they have to? Everyone will go OTT about Russell again ... and I bet they have him doing something spectacular *sigh* He is a nice enough bloke, but all the fuss about What he did got on my nerves!

I'll still watch though

Did they run out of material for Kristina's outfits?! I think it's a cunning ploy to distract from the faces that Jason is pulling when he's dancing. My husband said he didn't see Jason at all .

I'm not going to see the final live either as my Mum has the cheek to have her 60th birthday party at the same time. Bah.

" Chelsee is dancing really well but she just winds me up. They all treat her like a kid, probably because she acts like one but she's 22 or 23 I think, certainly not 16."

I totally agree, I feel mean about it, but I really can't bring myself to like her. Mind you, Harry and Jason don't light my fire either! The good thing about that is that I am happy to see the best dancer win, as I have no particular favourite.

We don't usually have much of a social life, it is typical that we have been invited out this of all weeks .

12/12/2011 at 11:54

We're also not going out socialising! We don't seem to get out much lately - at least after SCD is over we'll be able to dine out on a Saturday for a change!

Agree with all said above. I don't have a favourite either, although I do think Chelsee does make some lovely shapes in her dances, she's really graceful. It will all come down to who can come up with the best choreography.

13/12/2011 at 09:42

The right result at the weekend, I think but I can't say I agree that Chelseeeee's Paso was worth 40. she had probelms with the fan at the start, I don't think she really commanded the dance and there were times when I thought she was ahead of Pasha, a bit like she was rushing through it.

Harry's Charleston and Vienesse Waltz were brilliant and worth a perfect score (take note Craig). And Kristina came up trumps with the choreography for the AT.

Looking forward to Saturday. I wouldn't put money on the result but I reckon Harry has the best chance, so long as Aliona doesn't go bonkers with the choreography.

13/12/2011 at 09:52

I still miss Holly and Artem!

I hope she carries on with either the AT or the Paso like she said in her interview.

I hope we get some really good showdances this year, last year's were a bit ropy!
