Stacey and Kevin – Cha Cha
I can definitely tell that this wasn’t Stacey’s dance! She did attempt some of that straight leg action and she did seem to be having a great time with the energy but it just didn’t connect with me. It seemed a bit messy at the start and I saw virtually no straight leg and then, as we got into the main bit, although they did the right steps, it did seem slightly messy and there were just times where she didn’t seem to know what to do, like the body rolls looked very hesitant. I also lacked the hip action that we saw in Dr Ranj’s dance and it just seemed all too safe and she just needed to let go and enjoy it!
Charles and Karen – Quickstep
After last week’s smooth and seductive dance, it’ll be nice to see how Charles does in a more controlled and disciplined dance. So, apart from a bit of gapping and some timing issues, I thought it was a quintessential quickstep with smoothness and a great attempt at this solid top line which meant that he glided across the floor with ease… and don’t make me mention those slips which was just something to behold! It’s a shame about the timing because I loved it!
Katie and Gorka – Paso Doble
I don’t know if it’s the choreography or the song but I just didn’t like this dance. I have to applaud Katie for her passion and commitment to the dance but apart from that and some nice attempts at shaping, it just all seemed a bit stompy and discombobulated. I didn’t think this was her dance but she looked like she enjoyed it and it was nice to see a different side to her!
Graemme and Oti – American Smooth
You know what, Graemme is becoming one of my favourites. You can definitely see that Oti has been working on his top line because, from what I could see, it was top notch man and he just looked like he was having a great time. Although the judges didn’t like the fusion and stuff, I liked this different kind of dance and with the song, it all fitted perfectly and I think the judges are just hating on Oti’s choreography. I don’t know why they didn’t like it, I loved it and could watch it all day! BOO YOU JUDGES 🙁
