Re: Strictly Come Dancing 2019

You know, I started watching this and had to turn to the athletics because of the insane, inane and manic cheering at every move by the dancers. Is it part of the ticket criteria that half of the audience have to have a degree in stupidity or are half the audience on day release from the infant's playground?

 

It really does spoil the programme especially to someone with tinnitus. I find it strange because whenever it shows the people in the audience at the front, they just seem to be enjoying the dances. The time for cheering is at the end of the performance, not for responding to an idiot holding a board up to tell those in the cheap seats to make a really annoying amount of screaming at the simplest of managing to put one foot in front of the other without crushing their partner's foot!

 

Or is it simply canned noise by the show's producers to make us think it's a privilege to watch some of the lesser masters of dance to some of the most inappropriate music choices?

Re: Strictly Come Dancing 2019

As expected, total mis-match of songs and worse: costumes to dances. Especially Motsi who seemed to think she was the bride at a wedding. 

 

Good stuff from Michelle, Kelvin, Dev, Chris R. and Will - the latter two progressing nicely week on week. Karim was let down by his onesie so he gets a pass this week but getting a bit samey. Enjoyed Emma/Anton's  routine though a touch slow, was well executed. Not sure on the rhumba's but then again, its not a great dance for anyone. Emma needs more as she can do well but will fade into dullness as we're seeing others develop better. 

 

Big improvement by David James but think he may be gone in the next 3 weeks. 

 

Still think Saffron is just being thrown around by AJ and like Karim, there some repetative moves that really need to be dropped in order to progress. 

 

I see Katja is going for the (Ed) Balls method by doing the minimal and covering it in comedy. Will he make it to Halloween week is another question.

 

Aneka was incredibly regressive and kind of says "I'm going home" especially with the jokingly "it was a charleston?" comment. Believe me, we didn't know it was either. Anyway, who's routine was better: Aneka's running around cluelessly or Smoothie the cat's:

Re: Strictly Come Dancing 2019

Enjoyed the show, 1st time viewing this series

Didn't miss Darcey, like I thought I would

Anneka to be eliminated

Outstanding were Catherine & Johannes ... could watch that again and again ... & difficult dance is the rhumba

Motsi is a character

Even Shirley Ballas didn't irritate me like she did up to now

Tess, the wooden plank, Daly was her usual self though.

@jonsie 

I belong to a SCD group. People who attend the show say they are encouraged to whoop, clap and generally make a lot of noise. Like you, I think it's totally OTT.

Re: Strictly Come Dancing 2019

I just think it's all so unnecessary. I remember the programme from years and years ago when it was a pleasure to watch. But it's not just strictly, sad to say, all these sort of talent shows are the same now.

Agreed the hype is irritating

I forgot 

Best dance outfit: Nadiya dancing to 'Kiss from a Rose' by Seal ... her simple styled dress flared out with the soulful music - fabric was a silver grey background with large pink roses on = fab

Best music: Downton Abbey to which Emma & Aljaz did a really good foxtrot

Best professional to watch: Aljaz

 

Roll on Harry Connick Jr in tonight's show

Re: Strictly Come Dancing 2019

Katya has put a tweet out claimiing she wasn't drunk! (In respect to her falling twice) She said the fall upstairs was 'deliberate'. Mmmmm, I reserve judgement.
