Week 9 – Semi-final!
One thing I like about the semi-final is that it is always the week before my birthday. And we have a good bunch of people in the semis. Looking forward to seeing the solo skates.
Oh are they actually going to skate at all tonight?!?! Too much fluff.
………..here we go! Only 15 minutes after broadcast began! And a break.

This song is so overused it angers me. Although she wobbled I have to give her credit for that standing up lift – that could have ended in disaster. She didn’t seem as good this week. And oh dear, that fall wasn’t good. They both went. Oh dear. Well that ruined the routine – all the impressive tricks seem to have gone….it was funny though. My mark = 7. Judges marks = 7, 7, 7…21!

Okay, so who forgot to feed the costume department this week? Urgh. Hideous. He is the weakest skater in the semi-finals but he still put up a good performance. Especially that throwing lift – that impressed me. And they didn’t fall which is a bonus. Even though that ending was a bit muffed and laboured. My mark = 7. Judges marks = 6, 6, 6.5…18.5!
Laura and Colin
Ah. I see they were fed during the break – decent costume. Ah such a complicated routine! So many tricks and things! Glad the headbanger worked – but she must be very dizzy. What an impressive routine! Best of the 3! My mark = 9.5. Judges marks = 9.5, 9, 9.5…28!
Odd. That is the only way to describe that.
Sam and Brianne
Hello strangled version of otherwise a good song. Very technical routine for his this week but pulled off really well – although she came daringly close to the ice again in the headbanger. But still, he deserves his place here and possibly next week. We’ll see how he fares on his own. My mark = 8. Judges marks = 9.5, 9.5 and 9…28! Same as Laura.
What a cute little routine! She looks like a little dolly! Aw she looks alright out there actually. No slip ups and no signs of the confidence she claims to have. Even a few tricks in there too. My mark = 6. Judges marks = 6.5, 7, 6.5…20!
Really hoping this goes well. Loving the song but not sure about the shirt. *puts sunglasses on*. Er, not much to say. Liked the crossy steps. My mark = 5. Judges marks = 4.5, 5, 6…15.5
Ha, I love those skates! Very fun and energy filled routine –perfect for Laura. She is a very good solo skater – impressive. She deserves a place in the final. My mark = 8. Judges marks = 8.5, 9, 9…26.5!
Potential point of disaster. He is very confident with the acting of the routine. Lots of musicality – even if the Strictly use of this song was terrible. Brilliant moves in that routine! It was superb! I think that he will go on to win. Deserves it on that alone! My mark = 9. Judges marks = 9, 9.5, 9…27.5!
So, who will make it into next week’s final?
Until next week…
