Strictly Come Dancing: Week 9 – Stay | Tv

This week they’re dancing the Jive to ‘Bandstand Boogie’ by Barry Manilow. It’s quite an old-fashioned Jive tune for Molly, who I expected to use a bouncy pop track to appeal to the yoof, but presumably Carlos knows what he’s doing. Has they brought precision kicks and flicks to Blackpool?

Now Tony has gone, it’s anyone’s game – with the exception of Hamza, I don’t think there are any nailed-down finalists this year. Everyone has had the odd bad week, and I can’t confidently say that any of our celebs are streets ahead of the rest in either ability or popularity. How exciting is that? That said, here are my predictions as we move into the final five weeks of the competition:

It’s our first time back in Blackpool since 2019, when Michelle and Giovanni Vogued their way out of the competition for good. Whose time is up this week? Grab seaside snacks and get ready for some joyful viewing – incidentally, in 2018 I wrote “Think of it as a warm blanket of predictability and comfort while the country burns around us”. Four years on and absolutely nothing has changed, so I suppose that’s one reassuring constant in our lives right now.

Key occasions

Molly’s timing is fabulous as all the time, however it all feels just a little awkward and stilted within the transitions, and her retractions may use extra punch. All enjoyable, however I do not assume it was her finest dance.

Subsequent Molly and Carlos!

This week he dances the Jive to “Bandstand Boogie” by Barry Manilow. It is a fairly old style Jive tune for Molly, who I anticipated to make use of a pop monitor to attraction to her yoof, however Carlos in all probability is aware of what he is doing. Did they carry kicks and precision strikes to Blackpool?

Walks to gala’s! DRINK.

Sam Ryder makes the phrases and situations! I can affirm that he actually IS that cute.

A minimum of two extra mentions of that bloody flooring. It is burnt, in case you are questioning.

This week’s rating…

Hamza and Jowita – 38

Scores: 9,9,10,10 – a complete of 38 for Hamza and Jowita. Nicely, that set a excessive commonplace for the night.

Shirley thought Hamza shone brighter than all of the beads, bracelets and balloons on this planet. He additionally preferred the footwork and particulars. Anton thought it was beautiful and that is the dance he would have cherished to do. Craig did not just like the solo jazz part, however the entire thing was spectacular. Motsi preferred Hamza very a lot.

One other 10/10 for Motsi’s hair. It seems to be unbelievable.

Ooh, superfluous dancers with big feathers. I really feel like I would like an additional pair of eyes for all this – it is arduous sufficient to maintain one eye on the telly and one on the laptop computer with out all the additional Blackpool gubbins.

As anticipated, that is all types of fabulous and stylish and there actually is not a mode that Hamza cannot dance to. Jowita seems to be like a frozen swan and the lifts are superb. I preferred this.

First up tonight is Hamza and Jowita!

This week she dances the American Clean to “New York, New York” by Frank Sinatra. I really feel like we’re all anticipating this to be fairly epic, even by Hamza requirements.

Come out the celebrities! Helen seems to be dressed like a kind of picnic blankets with a water-resistant backing. Extremely popular with folks watching Gary Barlow at some of the civilized festivals. Very right here, although, for Tyler’s enormous.

I really feel like everyone seems to be just a little excited. When it comes to dance high quality, please modify your expectations accordingly.

TESS AND CLAUDIA DRESS WATCH!

Point out the primary flooring with springs! DRINK!

As Blackpool is technically a toll week, we get a bonus opening dance celebrating… all issues Blackpool. Plastic rain poppies all over the place – God, they have to be sweaty.

Out comes Shirley wearing toffee, adopted by Motsi in leopard print lycra. Loving each little bit of this cheerful camptastic nonsense, extra please.

And off we go! The folks of Blackpool are delighted to have Strictly again and the Strictly stars are delighted to be there. Everybody stares on the ceiling of the Blackpool Tower ballroom as if it have been the Sistine Chapel of the North. Ah, that is good. Welcome again to Blackpool, everybody!

Indulge me whereas I take a fast second to shamelessly plug my new ebook, which is out on Thursday. It REALLY contains a number of thank yous, as a result of I am good like that.

Now Tony’s gone, it is anybody’s sport – apart from Hamza, I do not assume there are any finalists this yr. Everybody’s had a nasty week and I can not say with confidence that any of our celebs are streets forward of the remaining both in talent or reputation. How thrilling is that?
