Hmmmm it'll be interesting this week. As I said, I really think we're down to the pointy end now.
I think the dance off will probably be Claudia and AJ and Judge Rinder and Oksana. I love the judge and he really has improved, but I don't think he's as good as the others.
Claudia, for me, is good and I think she's doing really well, but she's not a patch on Ore or Danny. That said, I hope to be proved wrong and will be watching AJ's choreography carefully - at the start of the show he had a habit of making everything too fast, now the competition is hotting up it'll be interesting to see if he changes his tack.
Well, once I finally got the time on Sunday to sit down and watch the show......what can I say apart from wow!!!
Danny and Oti - Fantastic. I'm not a massive fan of the samba but it was incredible. Her choreography is just brilliant.
Claudia and AJ - this blew me away. I have actually watched it 3 times. The ganchos maybe weren't as good as Danny's but I think they were very unfairly under marked, definitely was worth a few 10's. And AJ's choreography was brilliant too.
Ore and Joanne - this also blew me away. I loved the fresh contemporary look of it and the pose at the end was just superb. He did have a wobble mid way through, but just cracked on and his shaping was, for me, possibly the best of all the dancers so far.
Louise and Kevin - meh! It was lovely and well danced, but just a bit....meh for me.
Judge Rinder and Oksana - I don't like or get the rumba but thought this was pretty good - the judge pleasantly surprised with the quality of his shaping.
Ed and Katya - Thank f*** for that! I cannot even bear to watch him dance. So now we're at the sharp end.
The cha cha challenge - I agree BTB it's hard to judge (particularly with the rubbish camera work) but I was hugely surprised to see that Louise had finally found out how her hips work!
I agree with you Brooks, definitely Daisy and Ed for the dance off this week, probably with Ed going out (hopefully...)
Should be a good evening of dancing as I think most of the remaining dancers (barring Ed and Daisy) are really good. To expand, I still haven't warmed to Daisy and I just don't think she has the grace required in general nor the gumption that the Salsa needs. Personally I wouldn't miss her if she went out this week.
I do think it was right that Laura went as, after Ed, I personally think she was the weakest dancer.
Was surprised to see Ore in the bottom two, but not sure that was entirely his dance.
I think Ed may go this week, his ballroom is getting better - Saturday was really good for him - but I don't think Latin is his thing.
Everyone else, I thought, had really good dances. Louise was superb, but then I think the precision which that dance requires plays to her strengths. I also thought Judge Rinder was fab - I just love him!!
