Just read that Louis has ADHD and therefore problems with concentration.

Needs a "mother figure" to keep him up to the mark, Flavia has tried to step into that role.
I enjoyed watching him dance but agree that he didn't show agression.
Perhaps he needs to overcome 19 years of training as a gymnast, to be able to perform agressivly.

Although Lisa got bad comments thisweek, I thought that her marks were quite good.

What a shame Michael became wooden again this week, he is obviously capable of dancing with grace, just a shame that the Latin dances seem to intimidate him. Still I reckon that it was his best Latin dance so far!

Loved Kimberley's performance too. Pasha is rather lovely isn't he. They make a lovely couple. I reckon that the judges are rather harsh with her too.

I admire Victoria, but think that it is time for her to go. She seems to look defeated before she starts dancing, it must be terrifying for her when she seems tobe convinced each wek that she will be usless.
With a lot more confidence and devil may care attitude I think that she would be a lot better. (but still not good enough to win)

Victoria to be in the dance off this week, possibly with Michael, but Victoria to go.

So sorry for Louis. I thought he was great but has trouble pleasing the judges

Well didnt we have a serious night off the judges...

Danni and Vinny ......good dance and I agree with Craig they do look like they have been dancing together for years.

Kimberley and Pash............I love him he is so cute,


Victoria and Brendan....does she even make the effort? She looked lovely however I do agree with the judges, hope she goes this week she is my fav too.


Flavia and Louis .......again the judges in my opinion are far too hard on him :-| he gives it his all and still it isnt good enough.


Michael and Natalie.......far too wooden, and the dance seem slow to me, think he could be in the bottom 2 with Victoria


Lisa and Robin.....at last the judges have been truthful and what a shock it was too her and all, I actually thought it was one of her better dances, better than last weeks.


karen and Nicky......one his better dances glad he got positive comments from the judges for a change.


Denise and James.....so obvious the judges favs and to be honest it does annoy me.

Brace was awful what a pity he cant be in the dance off :-(

Well back to normal tonight, in the confines of the Studio.

I still think that Nicky should go. But his army of fans will keep him in no doubt.

There was grumblings that Denise and Kimberley have an unfair advantage, cos they can dance already.

All can go out of the window on the night, as we have seen.

Victoria seems not to be enjoying herself at all. And yeh, I read that Louis likes himself a little too much. Notice how that Flavia and he stand slightly apart when they are being marked by the judges.

Right, are we all in our spangles girls. I have a divine royal blue number on tonight, with lots of ruffles. Feathers in my hair too. I look gorgeous!!!!!

Here comes the music to start...................gotta go.
:-)

I think Victoria has given up . According to the papers she is disappointed with the loss of weight because it means that her muscles are not excercised enough. Her admission that she should have been in the bottom 2 is giving the viewers the nod and a wink that she thinks its time for her to go. Not too gracious for the people who voted for her. If a couple wish to stay in I cannot imagine anyone planting a seed of suggestion that they should be in the dance off, .......unless they wanted out.-jl

I think he knew he was going tonight. I did warm to him but it was right to save Nicky.

Hayley Empress of Drama Report 18 Nov 2012 20:05

I think Flavia and Louis thought they'd be in the bottom by the relief of them both, Louis bent down and kissed her neck she turned and asked if they have called out their names, he repiled yes we are safe.

The judges redeemed themselves in my book just, by putting Nicky and Karen through.


He had a good run did Ricahrd he was funny but just didnt get any better.

Really did not like the colours in the outift worn by Lisa.

The flashing lights spoiled it for me. Why do they need that stage in the middle of the floor.

As much as I liked Victoria during the Olympics I think it is her time to go.

Might even be Lisa in the bottom two.

It was a big occasion at Wembley but too big a venue imo.......floors on different levels and glitzy lights flashing.... spoilt it all for me.
Not suitable for ballroom darncing darling:-)

Lots of the dancers,I think, were below par last night,and sorry, but the judges are still getting on me nerves, Len was extremely rude to Darcy :-| and she deserves an apology.

Denise was excellent but yes Richard and Victoria for dance off I think.

I am a big fan as well, of everything apart from Brucie that is, I think he should be pensioned off.

I don't know why they try to pretend that the Sunday show is live when it is recorded on Saturday night.

I watch the Sunday show but I always look on a spoiler website on Saturday so I know who the bottom two were and who is out

I noticed that Bruno was standing up last night trying to see them when they danced. Maybe the place was so big that the judges couldn't see properly. Lisa was not very good at all but we had the benefit of the close up cameras

AnninGlos

AnninGlos Report 18 Nov 2012 16:43

Yes I think Victoria and Richard too. Hopefully the people will keep Louis in as he has been much better than he was this week. I did think that Denise was very good this week but I just can't get away from thinking that she should be as she has performed on stage before and is not fazed by the audience. I think some of them found the large audience a bit daunting last week.

When they keep going on about 'the live audience' Do they usually use dummies? :-S

We missed a little of Michael's dance last night (Scotland) but
changed to Mono from HD and saw most of it. Well done to
him.
For me tonight Victoria and Richard in the bottom two, like
Hayley am fed up of seeing her being dragged around every
week.

Thank you ladies, Louis isnt popular with the judges this is so clear ( apart from Darcy) appartently Louis is a bit of diva and gives Flavia a hard time, and people are picking up on their boby launage.

For me the most improved has to be Michael, and i do hope he goes further, but there cant be that many ballroom dances left for him to do.

Denise is clearly the judges fav so is Lisa but sadly for me for all the wrong reasons.

I think Victoria and Brendan have had their day now, although that was the best I have seen her dance, to me she is too wooden and needs to relax a bit and clear Brendan drags her room the floor and I really didnt rate the dance at all.

Richard should be in the bottom 2 tonight along with Victoria, however I do think he will get the public vote because he is funny, but I have to admitt I am mighty worried for Louis as I am a big fan of his, it wouldnt suprise me to see him in the bottom 2 also.

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.

TessAkaBridgetTheFidget

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

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.
