Strictly Come Dancing Results 2012 – Week 3
Last night we were transported to Hollywood as Strictly took on its first themed week of the series. I’m not sure about you, but I found it a bit flat. Very flat. In all honesty, it ranks in my top 5 worst ever Strictly shows (really nothing could ever beat the horror of the week Series 7 all went wrong…or most of Series 2)
Yesterday night was marred by too much prop usage and faffing and not enough dancing. For one couple, it was their last dance.
Anton and Erin Quickstep to start and then the cast of Top Hat (that show with Tom Chambers) perform for us.Maybe would have preferred this instead of the singing mid-show. X Factor can have the singers, we’ll take the fantastic dance routines from theatreland!
…please, I’d only just forgotten the horror that was Hollywood night. Have to say, the only decent dances were Dani and Vincent and Louis and Flavia.
Last night housed some bizarre scoring as well. I couldn’t see a logically explanation for any of it, just blatant favouritism.
Saved: Kimberley and Pasha, Louis and Flavia, Nicky and Karen, Sid and Ola, Colin and Kristina and Dani and Vincent.
Danger: Jerry and Anton
Stupidly bad VT introducing next week’s theme and Twitter wants to gauge their eyes out
I HATE HALLOWEEN. I HATE THEMES. Nobody seems over enamoured with these themes – it seems to give the professionals a reason to forget to add dancing into their routines and just play around with toys.
Also, costumes…fancy dress…the thought is already haunting me…
I hate this as well. Bah humbug.
Saved: Denise and James, Fern and Artem, Lisa and Robin, Victoria and Brendan and Richard and Erin
Danger: Michael and Natalie
I prefer Sandie Shaw’s version.
It’s Iveta! I like Iveta, a lot more than Karen at this moment in time, because she has a lovely persona and is a very talented dancer indeed. She’s dancing with Sid Owen next week but yet this partnership is saddening at the same time because Ola has sadly had to fly home to be with her mother who has suffered a heart attack. Extremely sad, get well soon Janina!
Dance-off – Jerry and Anton
Jerry still can’t keep up with Anton moving around the floor although I think she was marginally better with her steps this time around! I think it was probably her actually putting effort into it because she is facing the chop.
Dance-off – Michael and Natalie
Mind the table this time Micky!
He didn’t improve – still rigid and the same as last time – and his timing was even more out than before. Poor lad just isn’t a Latin man. But I like him.
ELIMINATED: JERRY HALL AND ANTON DU BEKE
So that’s it, the remaining celebrities are freakying it on up for next week’s Halloween special! I despair…
