Have a suspicion Donny's erratic scoring will affect the bottom few couples. The next guest judge better be blunt and ruthless now where is whatshisface from Dancing On Ice???

Highs
- Sunetra and Brendan - the partnership, the routine/choreography, the music, Sunetra's dress, Sunetra's joy... Shall I go on?!
- Judy's dress - the only dress aparts from Sunetra's that stood out
- Jake and Janette's moody waltz - it might not be a pukka waltz but it was stunning

Lows
- Jennifer's dress with bib - wtf? Either decide that as it's a quick step she needs a dress of the usual style (30's/40s influenced) or decide to make a glamorous trouser suit which pays homage to the 30s/40s era and a nod to Meryl Streep's dungarees with the pinafore look (There's a Fred n Ginger film where there is an outfit that fits the bill beautifully....)
- Kristina's outfit - again: CHOOSE which look you are going for - Kelly McGillis in a (done up) shirt with big knickers or little shorts under it for modesty, or go with the Rumba theme and let Kristina shimmy in her gold tassled number.
Scott - where to begin? Why is he still in? Not warming to him or his partner at all.
- Donny Osmond and guest judges as a general concept. Pointless. And rubbish. Not to mention tedious. Please do not torture us viewers with this idea ever again. Not ever...

Highs

Sunetra and Brendans lovely AS - it put the 'ballroom' back into the proceedings
Frankie and Kevin's paso - normally I am a paso purist but I really enjoyed this
Pro routines including A nton and Joanne's dance to 'Moon River'   (even though the tempo was weird)

Lows

Jennifer going out before some of the others who I would like to have seen gone before her
Donny giving out a '10' and his other erratic scoring which messed things up in not a good way
A minor low  - Finding out that Alison has the samba next week - another latin dance a la Lisa Riley -  proof that the dance choices will be manipulated again this year to favour certain contestants.

- the band and singers - even though some of the music choices were terrible, the band was good!
- Jake and Janette's waltz - despite the fact that L en said it wasn't a waltz


lows
- too many props again!
- kristina's outfit
- Donny's scoring
- Donny in general. As others have said - please save us from guest judges (unless it is somebody like Ian Waite........

I'm beginning to think that I have less highs and too many lows !!

Highs:

1. Claudia mentioning Donny's ten in the main show! Cheeky mare!

2. Generally more sensible scoring, compared to Movies Week that's for sure!

3. The show feels that it is finally finding its feet with Tess and Claudia.


Lows:

1. A.nton throwing Judy like some unwanted dishcloth.

2. Scott's appalling American Smooth, the worst I've seen on SCD.

3. ThomDoll dressed like the grown-up Artful Dodger, and Iveta liked a Victorian Throllop.

Highs
More realistic scoring and C laude's comment about the 'Donny Ten'
Steve and Sunetra not ending up in the DO
Some great dancing of a high standard at this early stage - particularly Frankie and Caroline.

Lows
Some awful costumes - Thom and Iveta in particular
Some dances that belonged more in a theme week
Those cheesy VTs before they dance and how manipulative they are ( eg Mark and Nan, Mrs Murray and 'the boys are coming to see me next week') etc
Very Happy

Highs

- Jake Cool

- Sunetra & Brendan's reactions when their names were called out Smile

- Was convinced the only interesting thing about Thom was the way he spelt his name...but he's growing on me (not enough to vote or anything but for the first time it didn't look like the lights were on and no one was home!).

- Tim's goodbye speech and boogie.

Lows

- No more Nat.

- Scott & Joanne - I'm not sure who's more tortured by their performances, them or me!

- Mid-tablers Sunetra, Mark and Steve improving all the time. Could one of them sneak into the final?

- Better costumes all round.

- Judy's spontaneous shimmy when her and A.nton's names were called out Laughing

Lows

- Losing my top two female pros in succession kinda sucks.

- Scott

Highs

- Brendan mentioning Anya was involved in that wonderful VW choreography.

- Finally warming a little to Trent and his choreography. Still find him and Pixie a little creepy as a pair, but less so. Razz

- I am beginning to feel protective towards Mark, never watched TOWIE nor know him except from seeing him behaving like a douchebag in those trash entertainment magazines, but he showed that he really cared and worked really hard and, instead of pouting and grumbling he was at the dance-off and gave up like a douchebag would do, he put in even more hours and produced a very watchable Samba after being at the bottom two.


Lows

- Scott is clearly deluded, thinking he was better than he really was, like C.raig Kelly. Homourless and a sourpuss when he was criticised for his poor Charleston performance.

- Boy George 'singing' (results show)

- Claudia calling mark 'cute' for crying, what the heck?

Good spot CD. I was a little sad to lose Anya, I didn't mind her more low-key personality and her choreography was the kind I like. Pleased she's still connected to the show - albeit behind-the-scenes - and getting some recognition for her input.

Apparently Anya choreographed many of the pro routines, no wonder they were so much better this year!!!

Hear hear!


Although,* whispers* I can't actually remember what Anya looks like and who she partnered last year. Just remember her name and wondered where she was....

And I've been saying Scott = C raig Kelly for some time now. I really don't mind people being rubbish, and whilst I DO mind rubbish people being kept in unnecessarily long, I can see that they have been voted for because of their general loveliness of demeanour (like Judy), but I really abhor rubbish people who are deluded sourpusses....

Highs.

Nothing really hit me over the head with a sheer happiness paddle. Solid performances by a few and I liked Steve's uncomplicated ballroom waltz. Top enders all performed but a couple of the middle group need to step up a gear or two now.
The bloke accidentally falling over the haystack gave me a laugh.

Lows.
Same old. Lousy music choices took the edge off a couple of what should have been very good dances.
Scott just being there. Not his fault but he's getting a freebie ride at the expense of dancers.
Thom's lousy luck in being in the dance off.
The G.B.P playing silly xxxxers.
Boy George. Come on...let's grow up.

Patrick (aka Ash from Casualty!). They were quite an understated couple but did a lovely American Smooth which I've rewatched a couple of times Smile
