I think Clara's dance was better last night but still in places it didn't flow properly and out of the two I think she was the correct Celeb to go :-(

I did like the choreography of Jamie's dance :-D

So next week is Musical of my favourite weeks :-D

LondonBelle, I SO agree with you regarding HRVY. He just seems so lovely, and I absolutely loved his dance. I agree with everyone else who said Bills dance wasn't "his thing". Very ploddy and heavy footed.

I was very surprised who was in the dance off with Clara but I won't name names and spoil it for those who haven't watched it yet.

Can't believe it's the semi-finals next week!! It's come round so quickly. Too quickly! :-(


LindainHerriotCountry Report 29 Nov 2020 15:48

I think it will be Clara to go, she hasn’t been good for the last couple of weeks.
Maybe it will be Jamie or JJ in the dance off, but I would like to call it.
The dance didn’t suit Bill this week, but he has a lot of support, so I think he will go through


MotownGal Report 29 Nov 2020 08:52

Sadly it was not Bill's dance. He seemed to make heavy work of it.

Clara I think too in the dance off, but against who?

We shall see.


AnninGlos Report 29 Nov 2020 08:17

All of them are improving so much this year. I wonder if it is because they are isolated and nothing else is going on in their lives.

I loved Maisie's dance and HRVy's. He is such a lovely person. And I tooo thought the graphics were amazing. I think it should be Clara in the dance off and perhaps Bill but you can't account for the way people vote or don't vote.


LondonBelle Report 29 Nov 2020 05:54

Well, they are all stepping up a gear aren't they:-0

I liked HRVY....not only is he good at his dancing, he comes across as such a lovely young man<3

For someone who was a total novice, Ranvir to me is the surprise......each week l look forward to her dance to see how she has progressed :-)

Whether you like Maise or not, her dance was very good :-)

JJ also did well :-)

I thought Jamie had done well with his Tango but then for me the others came along and overtook him :-(

Although I admire Bill his Jive was a bit of a plod in places. :-(

And then that would leave just wasn't her night.....sadly far too many mistakes :-(

I agree with Kay that Clara should be in the dance off but with who :-S. I think perhaps Jamie or Bill :-( It should be Clara to go though but then I said that last week, who knows :-D

One thing that I thought was amazing last night were the floor graphics especially in HRVY's dance where you had that 3D really did make you think they were on a rooftop of a building:-D


Kay Report 28 Nov 2020 22:26

I thought Strictly was good tonight. I think Clara will be in the dance off tomorrow but I don't have any idea who she'll be up against.


MotownGal Report 28 Nov 2020 12:24

:-D :-D :-D ;-)


AnninGlos Report 28 Nov 2020 12:20

good idea MTG


MotownGal Report 28 Nov 2020 12:18

Bring back Anton. :-)


AnninGlos Report 28 Nov 2020 09:55

Yes makes sense. Maybe they should have had a replacement for him for thIs series


MotownGal Report 28 Nov 2020 08:35

I read last night that Bruno will be virtual for the Final of Strictly.

Apparently it would be too risky to fly over here with all the resistrictions in place.

Makes sense. He will give his comments over the link.


Annx Report 23 Nov 2020 21:40

Bill certainly hid his dancing light under a bushel! I used to watch him in various progs including QI and would never have guessed he was so light on his feet and athletic. I agree with all the comments and Clara should have been the one to go.

I thought the standard was particularly high this year right from the start as have been the judges marks. I'm not sure I like all the gymnastics in so many of the dances though. Karen is a very good dancer, but she is a bit OTT for me. I love Johannes and Oti.


MotownGal Report 23 Nov 2020 08:53

I think it was the old ruse of putting an average dancer up against a better dancer.

Caroline did not stand much of a chance against Maisie.

You could be right with the final three Linda.

Hey ho, on to next week.


LindainHerriotCountry Report 23 Nov 2020 08:50

It will start to even out now, it doesn’t really matter the order they go in. The top three to end up in the final will probably be Bill, Ranvir and HRVY. Maybe Maisie should be one of the top three, but she doesn’t stand a chance as the public don’t like her


AnninGlos Report 23 Nov 2020 06:48

Yes sadly I think Maisie came over as a bit cocky at first. I don't think she is, she is just young, It never seems fair when the public take against celebrities but it is always the same. Clara should have been in the dance off. However I think Caroline would not have coped for much longer.


LondonBelle Report 23 Nov 2020 05:29

Well, the public don't like Maise :-0 :-0

Both Clara & JJ looked genuinely shocked that they remained in the competition :-0

As soon as Caroline heard Maise's name she would have known that her time was up :-(

I do like Johannes <3

Onwards & Upwards :-D


Island Report 22 Nov 2020 15:11

Too much jumping about for my enjoyment - and not just last night.

Didn't like the 'street dance' at all - leave it in the street LOL. I didn't think it suited whatever his name is at all, it was like watching 'dad dancing'. As for his pro partner, I find her 'goofy boy' persona a bit nauseating,

I wasn't laughing hysterically with the judges over Caroline either. Why the gurning? I must say though, from a design point of view, her frock was more flattering - the navy number was so frumpy with it's (big no no) of a straight high waistline. Thumbs down for the costume dept for that.

*Takes off Craig hat*

Loving Bill and thought Ranvir did well with the A.T.

I think Anton is playing safe as a judge, not that I enjoy nastiness but is he too Mr Nice Guy?


LindainHerriotCountry Report 22 Nov 2020 08:47

I didn’t think Clara or JJ danced very well tonight. I think that JJ is the weakest of the dancers left in, but the public seem to like him and vote for him, that saved him last week.
I am not keen on the street dance either. Jamie seems to have had a run of the comedy type dances which the judges seem to like. I would like to see him given some of the more traditional dances to put him on more of a level playing field with the others.
I thought Caroline danced well tonight, I just can’t stand her, she is a real “ lovey”, she doesn’t seem to do well in the public votes, but if she was in the dance off the judges would save her.


MotownGal Report 22 Nov 2020 08:42

Ooooh I do like an Argentine Tango! I though Ranvir was very good, with barely a cigarette paper between them. I am not a fan of street dance, but loved the energy.

Sadly I think Clara ran out of steam, and seemed to flag towards the end. Although they praised Caroline I did think it was not so good.

I think Caroline and Clara in the dance off.

Anton is very encouraging with his comments, I do hope he gets his chance of full time judge next season.
