Opening night tonight...so will do this in two parts
Alex +Neil opened the night with a Quickstep... did very well I thought and looking at the other scores, I thought was scored low with 21
Chris and Karen. Cha Cha and were awful. He was completely out of time. Scored 13
Catherine and Johannes. Did a very good first night Viennese Waltz and scored 20
Saffron and AJ, Excellent Tango. Well deserved 27
Mike and Katya. Jive. I thought he did ok but was overscored with 22
Emma and Aljaz Cha Cha Cha... Quite underwhelming though managed to score 19
James and Luba. Tango. Very poor. I honestly thought he would be better than that. Stiff as a board. Scored 11

Kelvin +Oti a really great Samba. Considering he was a replacement for Jamie and has only been rehearsing for 2 weeks... well just wow.
David +Nadiya Foxtrot to 3 Lions!! I thought the judges were very kind with their remarks. However the marks reflected the dance. Scored 17
Michelle and Giovanni Cha Cha Cha. Much better than I thought she would be. Great performance Score 30
I have to post now as there is so much chit chat, the post will time out. Also I thought they would show only half of the contestants tonight

Dev (DJ) and Dianna. Foxtrot. Danced extremely well. Great footwork. Scored 30
Anneka and Kevin Cha Cha Cha. Mmmm. You were right @sheepdog ...Kevin won't win this year!!
Will + Janette Danced the Quickstep. Considering Will's disability, he danced better than many tonight.
Very well done. Score 26
Karim + Amy Cha Cha Cha . Blimey, that was excellent. Scored 31
Emma + Anton. Jive. I think Anton will do well with Emma. A few timing issues but not bad. Score 23
All in all a good first show.

@Cleoriff for some reason I read that as Kelvin! Agree, a good show with some outstanding ones and some, well lets just say if James and Anneka are in the same dance-off, I might be watching some cat video on youtube instead.

So, poor David James has been given a Paso for his 2nd dance....
James Cracknell with a jive. He will have to do better than last week... when he was like a plank.
If Anneka wears a long frock she 'may' get away with that waltz...
