The winner of best Blackpool week dance is Kelvin & Oti for their Jive

This was amazing! Everything came together for them and with the added atmosphere of being in Blackpool it was just incredible. I was a bit worried about Kelvin doing the Jive after the training footage I had seen on ITT but he proved me completely wrong.

The winner of best Halloween Week dance goes to Michelle & Giovanni for their Foxtrot

They absolutely nailed the characters which helped them tell a story throughout the dance, the dance itself was mesmerising and executed so well. Michelle brough her A game in the competition and this dance really showed how talented she was as a dancer,

The award for best Movie Week dance goes to Dev & Dianne for their Street Commercial routine

The Movie choice of Aladdin was so perfect for the both of them, they got to show of their friendship and the cheekiness so well in this dance. I was so excited to see them do Street commercial as well and it suited Dev brilliantly and Dianne’s choreography was amazing.

The winner of best themed week goes to Msicals Week

It was such an incredible week, the opening number with Kevin and Anton singing and then Craig coming out in drag was incredible, the overall amazing performance each couple did, and THAT Jive from Karim & Amy to get the first 40 of the series with an outstanding routine. The costumes, hair, makeup, music and sets came together for everyone and made musicals week such a memorable one.

The award for most emotional departure goes to Will & Janette

The way in which Will had to leave the competition was heartbreaking, the fact that it wasn’t through public vote and getting the chance to prove himself in a dance off but rather through injury was so sad. He was doing so well and I loved watching him each week so for his time on the show to end so abruptly and with a nasty accident didn’t do him any justice.

The award for most entertaining goes to Mike & Katya

Mike was such a joy to watch on the show each week and I always looked forward to seeing what he was going to do next. He put his heart into the show and tried so hard and some weeks it really paid off for example his quickstep was so good and so unexpected, he had so much fun on the show and I loved that about him. Katya was so cleaver, as she always is, with her partners and was able to create routines that when she knew Mike was struggling technically she would make it fun and memorable live their Samba or their Cha Cha.

The award for most improved goes to Alex Scott MBE

This was really a toss up between Alex and Chris, as I truly believe the Chris improved so much during the show as a dancer and each week he was getting better and he made it to the semi final. However, the reason I give the award to Alex is because not only did she improve each week in her dancing ability, she improved in her confidence and in her performance which it think is something Chris already had even before the show. Alex faced a real challenge with changing partners for a few weeks, which she handled brilliantly and also getting some tough comments from the judges, she proved that she was a fantastic dancer and produced some incredible routines.

The Award for the most shocking moment goes to Dev & Dianne and their unexpected elimination in week 4

Even now I still can’t understand why Dev & Dianne we’re eliminated so early on in the competition, their Cha Cha wasn’t the best dance for them but they definetly shouldn’t have been in the bottom two. They had consistently scored highly and the week before the were second on the leaderboard.

The award for best memorable moment goes to the Professional dancer for their red carpet fashioned themed results show dance

This was incredible, it had a clear story of what was going on, all of the pros had their own moments and you could tell that they were all loving it. Event the judges got involved which I love. But Johannes really stole he show with this one! This was a stand out of the pro dances this year.

The award for best judge goes to Craig Revel-Horwood

His judging this year has been fair and very honest, there are always times when I believe he may have been a bit too harsh. But this year his scoring was consistent and his comments were critical but also constructive. He had some fantastic moments on the show this year, Anton and the fake teeth!! and I think over the last few years he has become a lot more likeable on the show.
