A definite improvement from last week but ballroom was always going to susannah’s better style. A wonderful classic routine to a beautiful song. However there were a few wobbly moments and it meant that it wasn’t fluid and felt very hesitant and staggered at time.
It’s never nice seeing the first person to leave, especially when it’s a character like Susannah. She was highly entertaining and gave it her absolute all. It would have been lovely to see her improve week on week, but sadly it was just not meant to be.
Well, what can I say. Not the best technique and actual Samba wise, but the most entertaining of the night, but I think we all new that this was going to be the case. I love Susannah & Anton’s partnership and hope it continues to grow. She will be a memorable contestant for sure and I really hope that as she goes through the contest she will get the opportunity to improve.
The jive is one of my favourite dances as you know and from the first show, I think she’s going to be great! Graziano gave her some really hard choreography and, for the first week, she did so well and has amazing rhythm and she really put everything into the dance! I did see issues with the lines of her leg because her feet weren’t pointed and there wasn’t that fast retraction I like seeing from people’s legs – just a bit heavy! I think if it was two novices, it would have looked better but Graziano was just so good and it didn’t make her look as good as she could! Craig was so unfair with the scores because she did so well considering how hard that dance is!
Susanna and Anton – Samba
I am sorry but I don’t know if I critique this because I don’t think my eyes could leave Anton from that amazing entrance to that outift to his maracas popping out! I mean… I just don’t have any words but at least she had fun and I couldn’t stop laughing!
Charles and Karen – Cha Cha
You know what, he was as good as I expected and some more! This guy had everything and it was such an amazing cha cha – he had that flair and confidence but he also had the main components: there was rhythm, great hips and he attemped the straight leg throughout. I don’t care what Shirley said, it was a great cha cha and so modern and I can’t wait to see what he’ll pull out next! It was so nice to watch and I couldn’t have asked for more. If you’re going to be picky, don’t be insulting choreography and stressing out the celebs so early on because they don’t need that!
Ashley and Pasha – Viennese Waltz
I am so shocked at the dances this year because Viennese Waltz is my favourite but so hard! I am not surprised that this dance was so amazing, I mean she had nice posture, amazing elegance and her grace was second to none! Her musicality really was beautiful and helped her glide through this dance and connect to the story and make the audience feel something! I was naughty and didn’t look out for my favourite fleckles but I will rewatch it and let you know 🙂
I mean it seemed the best suited because of the height and stuff – I do have high hopes because of how well newsreaders like Susanna Reid and Natasha Kaplinsky did. She’s going to have a great time with Aljaz and I’m so excited to see what they do in the next few weeks!
Vick Hope – Graziano
Well, are SCD trying to set up another couple or the couple with best hair? I can’t really say much because I don’t know much about him as a pro dancer but god they look good together and I think she’s going to be great with her music passion and the few dance moves I saw when they did their entrances!
Faye Tozer – Giovanni Pernice
This is going to be a firey couple and who can’t enjoy this experience with the gorgeous Italian Stallion. I know that Faye’s going to be *I hope* with that whole music career and the fact that steps are well known for their dancing. I really hope she does well and she’s one of my front runners.
Susanna Constantine – Anton Du Beke
Was this a bit obvious on Strictly’s part? I mean they put Anton with the elder woman who everyone assumes isn’t going to great. I know that she’s going to be tons of fun and I’m so excited to see the two of them together because that banter will be unreal.
