For their couples choice street commercial routine. An overall fantastic dance, that required accuracy and a lot of skill. The use of the basketballs was woven into the routine seemlessly and they were able to control the props which was fantastic.
I know that others may have different views, these awards are decided by my own opinion
Before I start, here is the bad thing: HE SHOULD NOT HAVE PUT TEM DAMN FORTNITE MOVES IN… now breathe…
Apart from that start, this was actually one of my favourite dances of the night and it was definitely something I would love learning from the song to the set o the outfits to the moves. It was soo fun with the pyro and the trampolines but really it was just full of great content and showed how much he has improved from the start of the show. The two of them work so well together and they put on a proper show dance that i would happily watch again *i mean except the start* because it combined everything i love in a showdance! GO JOE!
A very heartfelt and romantic routine from Joe & Dianne, and I think he is very good at ballroom dances normall, but for whatever reason this dance just didn’t connect with me at all. On a technical side, the judges were right, there was too much rise and fall and I also didn’t see much turning so it didn’t feel like a Viennese waltz at all to me.
Argentine Tango – 30 (6,8,8,8)
This was an awkward dance to watch in my opinion. Joe didn’t have the strength to lift Diane and really grasp the feel of the dance. It felt forced as well making it loose its magic, I wasn’t to keen on the theme of the dance either, it took away from the whole Argentine Tango passion and intensity that it should have. It was a good effort, but I don’t think it was a dance made for Joe unfortunately.
With the concept, Joe could either rise or fall to the challenge but unfortunately this wasn’t a great dance for me. I dont know, he just looked like a boy doing a man’s dance and he definitely wasn’t leading it which is the main thing for this dance. When he did the first lift, it looked like he was running around trying to carry Dianne and it did seem a bit stompy and forced. I saw sparks of character and a connection between the two of them but it just didnt last and that’s the problem – there was no consistency. However, considering how young and innocent he is, i think he did his best.
Is the smoke trying to hide a multitude of sins? You know whatm i have been pretty critical of Joe the past few weeks but this dance has proved me wrong because it was actually a really sweet dance from the romance to the sensibility to the emotion. This time, i have to admit that it was actually a very nice dance from the footwork to the frame to the freckles. However, at some points it did seem a bit skippy and almost like an American Smooth. But, i am not as critical as i have been and it was a lot better than his salsa – i am surprised how critical the judges are especially how much better i thought it was than last week.
A dance full of colour and fun, Joe did really well in this dance. The technique wasn’t quite right but in this routine it didn’t really matter. I was so impressed with the lifts that he did, especially the one at the end, Ive never seen anything like it on Strictly before.
