Are those 'official' percentages?

The stats make interesting reading and show how close the voting was.
A closer look shows:
Joe & Alex - 43.20%
Perri & Vanessa - 41.48%
difference of - 01.72%
Joe & Alex - 50.53%
Perri & Vanessa - 49.47%
difference of - 01.06%
so, looking at that, shows Perri & Vanessa narrowed the gap in the final skate.
Cold comfort, I know, but this suggests that the public thought Perri & Vanessa`s skate of Bolera was better and gave them more votes.

As Libby only got 15% of the vote, you would get her supporters then voting for Joe or Perri.
I have found on the DOI forum I belong to, that people supported Joe because he had the most improved journey.
Also a lot of 'old fogeys' (excluding myself) did not get Perri's showdance. They obviously have no knowledge of the dance off's which take place between street dancing teams on a regular basis.
The same old fogeys who preferred Joe's Bolero to Perri's. They felt Perri did not keep to the theme.
Whereas I thought it was about time this 1984 dance was brought up to date.
Chris and Jayne got it and both said it was the best ever version of Bolero that they had ever seen.

Interesting comments from the "old foggies".
I`ll throw my twopennyworth into the mix.
I preferred Joe`s opening skate - the Charlie Chaplin one. It did play to his "cheeky chappy" persona, but, in my opinion, was a good skate.
But, and a very big but, Perri`s Bolera was in a different league. Without an app, I made one vote and it was for Perri for that.
