Good to see Fern has gone and agree Kimberley was
to make sure she went cause if she had been up against
Michael she would have been saved imo.

Don't know about anyone else but, although i enjoy seeing
the dancers doing a routine with the guest singers, bands etc
it really annoys me when the audience applauds through the
performance. My gripe for the day over ;-)

Emma, I agree I wish the audience were asked to applaud at the end, it seems rude to the singer/musician.

I loved the dance with Brendan and Natlalie this week, beautiful and dreamy. And Vincent's tango of course.

its normal for live musicans and professional dancers to experience spontaneous applause mid performance, it happens all the time during dancing comps so I doubt its off putting for either. They love it :-D

Well it was much better without Brucie this week, so retire him and put Anton in his place and bring back Ian Waite as a professional dancer in Antons place.

I also would get rid of Tess as well for one series and let her be a competitior so she can show her skills on the dance floor.

This way the programme would be better in my opinion.

Read an article by Anton recently where he said he didn't want Bruce's job and in his opinion if Bruce went the show would not be as good. He insinuated that nobody else could keep up the pace of doing all the warm up with singing and dancing before the actual TV part of the show, then go on to compere.

Brucie's the warm up turn? LOL :-D

PMSL @ Island, I think the show could go on without him certainly :-D

Julia Report 13 Nov 2012 18:07

Julia you will get a pimple on your tongue, telling fibberoos like that.

I think it will carry on quite nicely without him, no-one is indispensible.

How about Anton as a judge and Len taking over from Brucie?

Hayley   Empress of Drama

Hayley Empress of Drama Report 17 Nov 2012 20:23

I am abit annoyed actually tonight, are them judges blind or what...

Lisa and Robin, she lost timing I am sure she has danced this dance before if not the steps looked exactly the same, Robin stood on her foot at one point when again she got her steps wrong, and then she lost timing at the end, yet look at the comments and scores she got, why because she is bubbly boucey Lisa, which actually means she is overweight, not one judge pulled them on it, next up Nicky and karen they made use of the whole arena, excellent lines and they pulled him on tec bits the same with Flavia and Louis, Dani it was her worse dance lost timing at the end not one judge commented on it.

Yours Jolly Cross of Cheshire :-|

PS Bruce was simply awful :-|

Did anyone else watch tonights show on BBC Scotland.

We never got to see Michael Vaughan!
Just as he was about to dance, the TV switched to BBC Alba... we then sat through about 5mins of a GERMAN documentary, dubbed in GAELIC with ENGLISH subtitles.
Something to do with babies being kept in boxes at a German hospital???
Very kindly switched back to BBC Scotland at the end of Strictly. :-S

I agree with Hayley about the judges, but I found it difficult to watch tonight so many flashing lights, maybe they found it the same.

TessAkaBridgetTheFidget Report 18 Nov 2012 12:15

Hayley, I agree one hundred percent.
I was waiting for the judges to comment on Liza's loss of timing, and having Robin stand on her foot ... and nothing was said .. just praise!

Dani looked very nervous throughout, rather stiff and unsure, as you say, her worst dance yet ... and she got four 9's!
Kimberley and Pasha danced really well, but Craig and Darcey marked her a point lower than Dani.?????

I thought that the choice of music for Victoria and Brendan did not suit a passionate Pasa D. Victoria danced to the music very well, but obviously that wasn't what the judges were looking for.

I confess to being a Louis fan. but thought that he seemed (body language, before the dance started) to be a bit out of sorts, but still thought that he was under-marked.

What were the judges thinking??

Didn't like the camera work at all, I tuned in to watch the dancing, not for a view of the rafters. Plus the flashing lights etc.


Did anyone on here go to the live performance? I wonder if the "live audience" agreed with the judges?

So sorry to hear about the debarcle in Scotland. specially as Michael danced out of his skin!
I hope that you get to see the performance another time, although it won't be quite the same as seeing it live.

Have no idea who will be in the dance-off ths week, if justice is to be done, Richard should be the one to go, but who can tell?

:-S :-S :-S

Agree with tess that richard should go this week. I too thought dani looked stiff but also didn't think Kimberley was as good as she had been and she did say her confidence has been knocked. didn't think Louis was quite as good this week, but Michael was really good. Ups and downs I suppose.
