Finally managed to watch the main show last night, on fast forward!!
So, dance of the night for me was Jay and Aliona. Yes, I agree he needs to be more expressive but I think he's concentrating that hard on what his body is doing that he forgets to include his face. I can forgive him that though as technically it was fan-bloody-tastic. Going to watch it again tonight!
Thought Jamelia did a great job - pleased for her that she wasn't in the dance off for a change.
Helen - still not convinced. Thought the dance was good, but for some reason she just cannot bend her legs and get the hip movement - she's like a spindly legged little show pony - they don't bend their knees much either!! Problem is, she is a great dancer but I still just cannot warm to her.
Anita - good jive, but a bit off the boil for me. The timing just didn't seem quite right and I agree with Brooks - the kicks could have been sharper. Seemed a tad laboured at times.
Georgia - Lots of mistakes and waiting for Giovanni to lead her into the next bit. For the first time I thought she looked very unsure of what she was supposed to be doing. However, the bits she did remember to do were brilliant. Shame as I really like Georgia and think she is a great dancer.
Kellie - nice waltz, but didn't blow me away. That's all I have to say about that...
Peter - still not sure if I like him but can't take it away from him that this was a fantastic charleston.
Katie - I actually really enjoyed watching this, thought they did a great job. Ok, she messed up some footwork, but definitely her best dance so far for me.
Carol - really bad. It just looked half hearted and like she'd just given up. And yes, I was surprised too re the arm placement on the last lift.......
Jeremy - so bad I couldn't bear to watch it. I like Jeremy, think he's a lovely bloke, but it just made me cringe.
