Yeah - we noticed that too - wasn't much love lost there....


What do we do with ourselves for the next 10 months or so.........?

Well done Harry

Couldn't we have heard properly from Chelsee and Pasha?

Ha ha at Lulu dancing on her own!

There's the special on Christmas day ...

Yes, he seemed genuinely surprised and it was nice for Aliona having just missed it last year. Wasn't too mpressed with his bandmates though

Loved that abandoned B Lulu haha!!!

Sorry that should say 'Brendan abandoned'

Just got back and caught up.

Yeh!!!!!! Go Harry!!!!!   That AT was great and his AS was fab-u-lous.  The best man won.

But Chelseeeeee's QS was great and she didn't do a bad rumba either. Very close but overall the right result

Loved the group dance. 

right now to catch up with what's been said while Ive been out.

Well, I saw the result before I wanted to, so I've watched it arse about face - I've seen the second show, but not the first yet.

From what I saw it was a fair result, but I look forward to seeing Jason's showdance, including an unclothed Kristina 

It does seem mean that all the eliminated pairs from show 1 onwards get their little moment in the spotlight, except the runner-up. It looked as if Chelsee was being gracious in defeat, but it would have nice to have heard her thanks to Pasha

I agree about Chelsee not getting chance to speak.  In fact at the end it all seemed a bit of an anticlimax - the trophy was only seen for a few seconds and what with Harry's mates getting booted off.

A great show though and one of the best finals for a while with not a hint of bacofoil in sight.   Going to try and find another look at Jason's show dance now.

Ahhh, I finally got a chance to catch up with the final last night. I was so pleased that Harry won! My pick never wins when I watch it live ... perhaps I will have to intentionally not watch the finals from now on.

I loved the fact that this year the show dances were PROPER dances - that beats the acrobatics every time.

All finalists did really well, but thought Harry had extra polish on the night and was the rightful winner

MB's Nutcracker was also fab-u-lous ... recommend it to everyone!

Away at weekend and just got back on this threwad. However I did watch strictly from the hotel room.

 Correct winner I thought.

 Not sure about any of the showdances though!

 Agreed that Harry did perhaps do too many lifts and not enough dancing. He got punished for too much content as well because some of the lifts weren;t quite there.

Chelsee - I really don't rememebr herb showdance! It sort of passed me by. I remember it finishing and thinking, Oh I misssed it , what did they do?!

Jason - it was he best showdance BUT I was disappointed. Hollywood yes and danced well but perhaps not enough in the Genre. Not as good as his singing in the rain AS for instance and it could have gone on from there.

Harry was best overall though and that Quickstep was the dance of the series for me.

Brucie got a bit miffed with the bandmates but they were off fairly quickly. His dad sneaked on then quickly as well.

 Chelsee did lose out on a chance to talk but that does happen every year to the runner-up. A shame really but they seemed to just run out of time at the end.

Actually BtB, it doesn't happen every year, I recall Matt Baker last year congratulating Kara and I am sure I remember the rugby player (danced with Lilia, beaten by Ramps???) congratulating Ramps. They really should factor in enough time, do without the public quotes, in order to give both runner up and winner have a chance to talk. I just think after all the build up it ended with a complete dead stop and I felt sort of flat Silly maybe!

Looking forward to the Christmas special even though though it is nothing like the series as I haven't invested any time or feelings into the contestants. I have no idea who is on, have deliberately avoided any mention so it is more of a surprise! I think I'm a bit sad really

I won't be on on Christmas night so will take this chance to wish everyone a lovely Christmas
22/12/2011 at 11:22

<chucks some tinsel into the thread>

Merry Christmas to everyone!

I will put my irrational dislike of one of the contestants (just to keep TS spoiler-free!) to one side and watch the Christmas Special, but it will probably be a day or so later.

22/12/2011 at 11:24
Oh and just to harp on about the runners-up not getting a chance to speak - if it had been a live sports program I bet they wouldn't have minded running a few minutes late...

I've booked to see Anton and Erin at the Symphony Hall in Birmingham - also the SCD Live Tour at the NIA! Something to fill that SCD hole!
23/12/2011 at 09:48

Ooh! I'm a bit jealous Sqwark

Hope you have a lovely time at both evenings. Will you report back and let us know what they're like? I'm curious about how Artem gets on with Nancy

23/12/2011 at 10:26

I had tickets to see Anton and Erin but had to cancel because I wouldn't have been able to sit through it (gave the tickets to my friends) . I'm not even going to attempt it this year.

I am looking forward to the Christmas special, although I have no idea who is in it. I expected to be in on Christmas evening but have now been ordered to attend the SIL's for dinner, so I will prolly catch up with it while Mr S is at w*rk on Boxing Day

23/12/2011 at 12:52
Will def report back. I can't begin to imagine how Artem will get on with Nancy......
25/12/2011 at 20:20
Am I the only one watching?

25/12/2011 at 20:26

Am I missing it????
