Congratulations to Stacey & Kevin for becoming the 2018 Strictly Come Dancing champions. Stacey has improved week on week and become such a fantastic dancer. She has embodied all that Strictly is and entertained the nation every week with some absolutely outstanding performances. As for Kevin, it’s about time ! He is one of the most fantastic professionals Strictly has ever had, he has produced some amazing choreography and really played to Stacey’s strengths this year and I cannot think of a pairing more deserving of winning this year, everyone has fallen in love with Stacey and Kevin is one of the most loved pros on the show.
This dance was so unique and cheeky – it was just full of so much fun and i just can never really fault her technique and the ability for her to put 110% into everything she does. Even with all this critique and stuff, I hope Ashley can go out with her head held high and be proud of what she’s done.
Stacey and Kevin – Paso Doble
Kevin must be the king of Paso and this dance really was a stand out or Stacey with everything from the music to her dress to the atmosphere. Also, like last time, she pretty much stayed this dance with so much conviction and passion that this dance needs.
Faye and Giovanni – Couples Choice a
Part from being sad they couldn’t do the freaky ass make up, i literally loved this dance maybe even more than i did the first time. It was so unique and i have never ever seen anything like this before and we probably won’t see something like this again.
Joe and Dianne – Charleston
The difference between the time he did that dance the first time and now it’s crazy. It’s definitely shown how much he has improved as a dancer and how much his confidence has improved too. I am sad that we didnt get to see him do ballroom but he was good!
This is what a proper showdance should be, full of sparkle, moving sets and music that makes me want to jump out of my seat. Initially it was full of energy, the timing was impeccable during a really hard bit of choreography that was so creative. I mean i also was in love with her outfit that was so sparkly and Oh my gosh i want it so much! I did see her lack some energy towards the end but overall, i really enjoyed it and its a great way to summarise her journey and Kevin really smashed it out of the park with such high energy choreography compared to his other ones which were always more emotional.
I loved this dance the first time and i think i loved it even more this time from the outfit to the dance to the concept to the music. It was fulll of fun, elegance and just a lot of charisma which is always key in this dance. I saw no problems with her footwork, her frame was elegant and strong and her face was just full of joy and happiness. Honestly, her journey from start to end is amazing and what i love more is how normal she is – like she could be my best friend. If I wasn’t so annoyed about the favouritism the bbc has for wanting Stacey to win for Kevin (who i still love), then she would be my front runner – however, i still think she is amazing and i loved watching this dance and her journey.
A fun filled routine, that suited Stacey so well. We got to see her cheeky personality and the great relationship these two have. I always love seeing this side of Stacey, it’s nice seeing her have fun. Such a brilliant routine as well.
Viennese Waltz – 36 (8,9,10,9)
Something more understated and subtle from the pair, it’s nice to see the other side of Stacey as well. And her doing two completely different dances so well also shows how good she really is and that she is an all rounder.
That was another dance that Stacey absolutely smashed out of the park. From the start, the atmosphere and the dress and the connection between the two of them was perfect for this dance. It was so nice as they both glide across the floor and i did see a great fleckle from the two of them. I didn’t really see what Craig meant by the American Smooth because i thought it was a really nice dance and I am normally quite a critic of the Viennese waltz because it is my favourite. I loved the character throughout and even when she started laughing because it just worked with the dance whether it was intentional or not. I didnt think it was technically perfect but it was so nice to watch.
