Musical Choices

Post  CaledonianCraig on Sat Nov 29, 2014 4:01 pm

Apologies in advance if there is another topic elsewhere but have read posters saying that the musical He is. And we obey him. chosen for couples is done by a BBC employee. For me that is just wrong. Surely, to create even more creativity from the couples the decision should lie with the professional dancer - it should be their choice of music they dance to and not the guff given to them by someone who does not have a clue.

I am sceptical as to why the music is allocated in this way and it always strikes me that it is manipulative. The joke dancers ie Scott seemed to get served up very good musical pieces ideal for the type of dance he had whilst that is not the case for others. Coincedence or are the BBC running a handicap system?

What are your thoughts?

If it is Im amazed and angry re musicality choices left to a randon bbc employee! Why not have a panel of pro dancers each year and ask them to select music selections for all the dances?

I think they are given the music by the production team CC - and IMO they are totally losing their way with it...................
Apparently there is much influence from DWTS nowadays but it is not working and some of the routines are just becoming caractures IMO.

I don't know who's doing it (thought definitely NOT the pros) but whoever it is, they should be tortured at some length to recompense for the torture I have endured this series, culminating in the beyond-awful AT to Zorba the Greek. That did not work on any level, whatsoever.

Music choice is key for the success and enjoyment of the dance by all concerned - participants and audience alike. The people who choreograph the dances should choose the music. End of.

On Masterchef they have a round where everyone cooks whatever they want , it shows who the best is & it,s a level playing field
They also have a round where everyone unprepared cooks with scraps / leftovers , it shows who,s the most versatile &it,s a level playing field
They don't have a round , luckily , where they say some of you have veal to make a dish , but some of you have to make a better dish with this tin of Spam , maybe cos it would be obvious & tell them nothing & a level playing field it,s most certainly not .

Theme,s , music , hide manipulation & favouritism only so far , the public can still win & they will Laughing
