After spending two weeks on the dance floor, it’s finally time for the first celebrity to leave Please come to dance strictly. Fourteen athletes escaped the general vote last week, but tonight they faced music for the first time.
Saturday’s live show changed the competition head-on: Dragonsden Stars Sarah Davies and Tilly Ramsey impressed the judges and jumped to the top of the leaderboard. At the first live show, they were one of the worst dancers, but Saturday’s show ended with 34 points each.
AJ Odudu and her partner, newcomer Kai Widdrington, became a favorite again, and Foxtrot to Amy Winehouse’s “Tears Dry On Your Own” was one of the highlights of the night.
Sitting on the other side of the leaderboard were Ninawadia, who scored only 18 points for tango, and Adam Peaty, an Olympic swimmer who scored 19 points from the judges in Quickstep.
But last week no one was gone, so the scores of both the first and second week judges were totaled. So Sarah and Tilly’s great performance didn’t get the top spot on the leaderboard, but it did help prevent them from getting chops.
When it came to dance-off, it was Nadia’s Tango vs. Katie’s Jive.
“Both couples have clearly excited the game since they first danced,” said Craig Revel Horwood. “Nina, you got all the steps right. Katie, you really kept the energy to the end with so many withdrawals.” He finally chose to save Katie.
Motsi Mabuse also chose to save Katie and her partner Gorka. I found that a couple was a little more convincing, so I went with Katie and Gorka. “
The new judge, Anton de Bake, included a spanner in his work when he voted to get Nina into the competition. “This is exactly the way you want to be dance off. You want to have the best performance, and I think you did both. This is the best you’ve done both dances. “He said. “It was Nina and Neil who improved their game and performed the best I could think of.”
Therefore, it was up to Judge Shirley Ballas to make the final decision. “This is one of the closest fights we’ve ever had in a dance-off,” she said. “Both couples excited the game. Both couples were absolutely happy to see. Both couples were right, so with the couple who took more advanced technical actions in the dance. I decided to go. The couple are Katie and Gorka. “
It’s time for Nina to leave the dance floor. “It was really fun. Thank you very much,” she said before performing her final dance. Her partner Neil added: The show’s second partner for me. I wouldn’t want anyone else. You were great and had a lot of fun. “
