I did feel sad for Adam because he's shown improvement in other weeks.
It's sad none of that is considered in a dance off.

Although I had Adam last of my own personal list and I'd not have saved him over Tilly who had a much harder dance than the jive.

I still just cannot see the point of doing the same dance again in a dance off which ONLY the judges get to decide on by in effect voting on the same dance TWICE.

Why there cannot be set dances they grab the basics of which both couples can then do in the dance off, I don't understand.
To be judged more fairly and not on the dance that perhaps hasn't been their strongest.

For instance, IF you had a couple last on the leaderboard with the judges, then in the dance off up against a couple higher on the board possibly nearer to midway up the board.

Really, what REAL chance does that couple at the bottom have to improve enough to overturn that scenario.

I love Strictly but the Judges inconsistencies of comments over voting, then getting to decide who goes on a dance they've already voted on.
Makes little sense to me or to being entertainment either.

It's a good show, in my view hampered by the 4 judges.

At this stage anyone could be in the dance off. That's why I make sure I always vote for Rose and Giovanni.
AJ is my second favourite. If Rose was not there I would definitely vote for her.
JoJo. my third favourite.
Don't really like the others enough to vote for them.

my 3 faves, and honestly now

TeamTikita (Tilly, Nikita)
TeamWalkova (Dan, Nadiya)
TeamRosiovanni (Rose, Gio)



as for others, i like AJ and Kai a fun chemistry

Tom & Amy good pair either, definitely also got their fanbase, and improving week by week


find Sara a bit overmarked now too, and Rhys isn't wowing me either, there was something wrong with his quickstep but i can't tell what

I just can't warm to Tom, no matter how good he dances.
AJ is indeed brilliant and would make a worthy winner.
Dan is a lovely guy, I can't help liking the guy.
I'm sure his ballroom next week will be good.

I like Rhys as a person and he's a good dancer. But there's no light and shade with him.
Last week was better and hope he can improve.
Sarah is always overmarked. It puts me off her.

Poor Tilly just doesn't have the core fanbase. Which is a shame, she's so good.

I really dislike the samba as a dance, never liked it.
The samba, Salsa and American Smooth are 3 dances I've never ever liked.

Hope he does well and that Johannes sets up a good routine, especially as Johannes has for me devised the most superb of routines all through up to now..

Your main 3 are mine now too.
If, AJ, John and Rose make the final I'll be content, no matter who then wins it.

However I really hope John and Johannes will do in the final if they are in it, I hope they do again that brilliant Paso Doble Pirates dance.

For me that's the best routine I've ever seen on Strictly.
Had me spellbound.

I think they'll be fine. If they can do a rumba they can definitely do a samba..
I'd be happy with John, AJ or Rose winning.

The quickstep is one of my favourite dances. I would love to see Rose and Giovanni dance it next week.
Giovanni ballroom choreography is spectacular!

Rhys has the Charleston! Omg this time he's going to top that leaderboard!
I'm worried for John, he has the samba when a lot of the others have ballroom..

This is what I feel too.
I do like her and Nikita has put in some really good content in the routines.

Here however just over halfway through, for me already thinking, it will be an unfortunate end to this series, if after all their incredible routines, that AJ, John and Rose weren't the last 3 standing.

Good luck to them.
Everyone has tried their best however, even the ones who are weaker dancers.

AJ, John, Rose will be the final 3, nothing that can go wrong for them


it is all rigged for them



John = Nicolas Puschmann

Rose = Benjamin Piwko

AJ = the obvious winners journey a la Stacey Dooley normal northern girl

No, I don't think it's rigged.
They have been in my view the consistently good performers with exceptional routines.

I don't even think of Rose not being able to hear, her performance in the routines are really good, whether she could hear the music or not.

There have been strong and excellent routines from others too in some weeks but not as in all, like for me, in my own view only of course, AJ, John and Rose have been.

If in fact, they were the last 3 standing, for me that would be the fitting result for any series.

I do however think, the Judges can manipulate what happens as to at least one contestant in the bottom 2.
Plus then engineer the outcome of that by who they save.
Plus their voting is erratic.

I'd hazard a guess that so far, AJ, John and Rose have been in the top 5 of the public voting most weeks.

It can't be rigged, HOWEVER by the judges voting, plus the dance off then only the judges deciding who goes.
That scenario gives way too much influence and power to the 4 judges.
That's really my only gripe with Strictly to be honest.

hope Rose's couples choice will be similarly fabulous as Dan's was last week

so happy they went for the lyrical one, since her timing is just perfection something i already knew of deaf people, from Benjamin

Rhys's charleston training, way too energetic, frantic looking

ew ew ew, those swivels can be a lot cleaner, neater, more precise


charlestons can be fast yes, but the technique needs to be precise, neat that makes this a difficult dance (for hyperactive frantic clown what he is)


come on judges grow a backbone and be honest for once tonight pls

I like Tilly a lot but it was a bit more like a slow-step than a quickstep.
Sorry.
