Strictly Come Dancing 2012 – The Final!

BBC Strictly 2012 Line-up
So it’s that time of year again, the Strictly Come Dancing final, will we see more 40s tonight and if so will it come from someone other than Kimberley? Continue reading

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 – Week 11

BBC Strictly 2012 Line-up
Five couples remaining, and now they have to perform two dances each. This should really test their dance abilities and we could see quite a few mistakes tonight I fear. Continue reading

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 – Week 10

BBC Strictly 2012 Line-up
This week we have a new concept (well to Strictly anyway, I believe they tested it out on Dancing With The Stars previously) of a dance fusion, either two dances performed within the same song seamlessly, or a split half-way through.

We’ve seen professionals perform these type of dances at shows before, and I’ve choreographed and performed dance fusions before. These could be amazing, or a complete car crash…let’s hope for amazing!

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 – Week 9

BBC Strictly 2012 Line-up
So we’re down to 7 contestants and Michael has a Samba…that’s got bottom two written all over it!

We actually managed to watch the show on Saturday night for once, though we didn’t start until ridiculously late so thought we’d leave the update til Monday morning as usual.

3 weeks to go until the final, and it’s starting to get harder to say “they should definitely go this week” so we’ll just have to wait for their performances to be sure!

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 – Week 8

BBC Strictly 2012 Line-up
Sorry for the delay in the blog this week but our hosting company appeared to have a major meltdown of their servers where our database is stored, the website still worked but the blog was unavailable even to draft a post.

Anyway on to Saturday night’s show.

Is it just me or should they really have waited until there were only 6 left before doing a friends skit?!

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 – Week 7: Dance Through The Decades

BBC Strictly 2012 Line-up
Just when you thought we were safe from themed weeks it appears tonight at Wembley is going to be ‘Dance Through The Decades’, why can’t we just have dance through the show instead?!

You can definitely see that this is designed to be a higher budget show, amazing what a difference it makes when you’re charging people for tickets (although hopefully a large chunk is going to Children in Need).

Bruce’s intro is just painful for us tonight but (4 repeats of ‘nice to see you’ later) it thankfully moves on to the ‘stars of our show’…oh dear it’s not over yet – cue en masse Gangnam Style.

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 – Week 6

BBC Strictly 2012 Line-up
30 seconds in to the opening VT and Emma (the wife) has already declared the pairing of Tess & Claudia to be better than Brucie & Tess…think I’ll reserve judgement for now but I think I’m probably going to agree with her.

Is Tess playing Brucie today, or has she dressed as a pseudo-man just for fun?

Anyway our stars are introduced, Artem has his chest out again so obviously their dance must be bad again this week, but everyone else doesn’t look too bad…apart from Brendan’s hat???

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 – Week 5

BBC Strictly 2012 Line-up
Another week of Strictly, but what’s this…no theme…what are we going to do with ourselves. We might actually have to judge the performances on their dancing!

Once again we didn’t get a chance to watch any of the training footage this week, though a little birdy tells me that Vincent & Dani are doing a Jive to Olly Murs, a song I choreographed for a charity Strictly-style event I took part in last year…I’m sure mine was better… 😛

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 – Week 4 “Halloween”

BBC Strictly 2012 Line-up

Anyway, back to Strictly and our Thriller of an evening ahead…
