Well the truth is I was away at the weekend and missed it. I do have it recorded but haven't managed to watch it yet so can't really comment yet.
I guess I was slightly surprised by the result BUT always said it depended on how it went on the night so again until I have seen it I can't comment. I felt that any of the final four could win it though so in that sense not totally surprised.
Beth, Fair enough on your view. To be fair I don't like Rumba anyway so pretty much never like it whoever is doing it. Actually thought Greg's wasn't bad this year and the one I actually liked was Rachel Stevens a few years back.
A lot of people didn't like Louise's Samba. I was OK with it but didn't really like either Tango although I felt that was due to the music so held back a bit on critique because I felt that had ruined both of them for me.
I know what you mean about Ore, the whole emotion thing is just getting silly now!
This week's dances are
Ore and Joanne’s Favourite Dance will be a Jive to “Runaway Baby” by Bruno Mars
Danny and Oti’s Favourite Dance will be a Samba to “Magalenha” by Sergio Mendes
Louise and Kevin’s Favourite Dance will be an Argentine Tango to “Tanguera” by Sexteto Mayor
Ore and Joanne will be performing a Showdance to “I Got Rhythm” by George and Ira Gershwin
Danny and Oti will be performing a Showdance to “Set Fire To The Rain” by Adele
Louise and Kevin will be performing a Showdance to “One Moment in Time” by Whitney Houston
No real surprise on the dancers choice.
Apparently the judges choices are not being announced until Saturday, presumably a the beginning of the show. So they will need to be careful with training footage so as not to give anything away
Claudia and AJ will be dancing the Rumba to ‘Bleeding Love’ by Leona Lewis and the Quickstep to ‘When You’re Smiling’ by Andy Williams
Danny and Oti will be dancing the Salsa to the track ‘Vivir Mi’ Vida by Marc Anthony and the American Smooth to ‘Misty Blue’ by Dorothy Moore
Louise and Kevin will be dancing the Samba to ‘Brazil’ by Thiago Thomé and the Tango to ‘Glad All Over’ by the Dave Clark Five
Ore and Joanne will be dancing the Quickstep to ‘Are You Gonna Be My Girl?’ by Jet and the Argentine Tango to ‘Can’t Get You Out of My Head’ by Kylie Minogue
OH dear what time to get Rumba for Claudia, not quite as bad for a woman as a man but not great nonetheless and if as I suspect it is Danny and Louise for the final with a shoot out between Claudia and Ore that is a real problem for her.
Interestingly Claudia and Ore both have quickstep so that so that is a straight comparison but then it is Rumba vs Argentine Tango, the latter done well will always trump the Rumba.
Danny and Louise should be OK with their dances although Tango to Glad all over sounds a bit dodgy to me!
I didn't add to much to my comments but actually in line with yours and for pretty much the same reasons!
I haven't seen the last night's show yet but know the result; well at least that the Judge went but not sure if he was against Claudia or Ore in the dance off as different comments from elsewhere have left me confused.
Anyway when you are down to the last five they are all good but he wasn't as good as the others.
Feels like it will be Danny and Louise in the final with the last place between Claudia and Ore. I guess if the public agree then those two could be in the dance off so the judges will make the call..
