to me I wonder if the Beeb are cutting corners on the most important part of the show the music! for the Original Come Dancing they used to use the leading dancing bands and the music was good it really needs sorting

Couldn't agree with you more about the music Bren. It is dire.

Ray's extraordinary performance and Mark's brooding matador woke the Tipster household from the gentle slumber induced by much of the rest. Carole and Matthew danced with elegant restraint and economy and Claire and Brendan looked quite lyrical at times. I am mystified by Craig's adoration of the Baby Blancmange. He usually supports things that are a bit edgy and offbeam. She seems perfectly sweet and inoffensive but perhaps that is the problem. Just not alot of spice for me in that particular pudding.

I'm no expert but did enjoy both Mark and Karen and Camilla and Ray's pasos last night. Peter was the worst.

I enjoyed Claire and Brendan and Carol and Matts foxtrot the most. For me Anton and Jan were the worst

The marking and comments were all over the place and good on Brendan in pointing out just how eratic they were being last night. He had a fair point but I fear for speaking up he has shot himself in the foot!

Its interesting that Georgina left the competition when she wasn't in the bottom two and did a much better dance. Obviously she lost the sympathy vote!

I always thought that the votes were for the best dancers not the best personalities, but if we take a leaf out of the judges books, as I have said before
Craig has Darren/Emma as winners.
Arlene has Mark/Karen as winners.

Not figured Len or Bruno out yet but it only a matter of time I suppose.

I was reading on a board i am a member of, one of the girls on there has lessons with erin and apparently her original music choices were turned out by the producers and she had to dance to mission impossible. Apparently they want to attract a more mainstream audience or something daft like that. Remember on series 1 all the music was good, mostly proper stuff, and then as the series' have gone on the music has declined and more pop music has been creeping in till eventually they'll probably not want any proper dance music.

That's interesting. I always thought that they couldn't use music that's been used previously in other series of SCD. Although I think some people have on a couple of occasions. I'm guessing it must be hard to find popular music for dances like the waltz for instance.

Me neither, Bren - all joking aside, he is just like a tailor's dummy, no matter how much 'spin' the programme tries to put on his 'shyness' it can't hide (for me) that the man just has no personality to speak of.

I'm not sure on that, I guess on average the music has never been used before, the only time I seem to remember them repeating music is roxanne for a tango, john byrnes and claire sweeny used it in series 1, erin and julian in series 2, but theres probs been lots of times that i've forgotten about.

The wrong girl went home ... AGAIN!

Georgina's Foxtrot was lovely. She looked elegant (even making canary yellow look nice. Loved the design but hate the colour. Have the Beeb got a job lot of yellow or something!) and danced with restraint, althgough she looked a bit upright in parts. This was definitely her best dance so far and she even managed to get a bit od personality in her dancing, blowing a kiss to the judges!

Peter and Erin were dire. The dancing was as awful as their music. Full marks to him for attempting the knee walks, as they are difficult to do and require a lot of body tone and balance, but he didn't really do much else except lumber about the floor after Erin. They should have gone instead.

Carole and Matthew were very elegant and I loved her dress. They're doing a lot of graduated fabrics this series. Still a bit upright, but she danced well, light on her feet and her kicks and lines were very nice.

Jan and Anton were a bit of a mess again this week. The woman doesn't pull up through her ribcage, so her posture is wrong and she loses that lightness on top. Changes in direction were hit and miss, with little or no control on the change step. I'm afraid that Jan does not dance with musicality. Anton should seriously consider getting Kenny Welsh in to train Jan for their next Ballroom dance. As Madasafish will remember, his 'Superbody' technique works wonders.

I liked Mark and Karen's Paso. Point taken about the music Bren, it's more flamenco that Paso, but I do still like it! Her dress was great, but what on earth were those things on her legs?! Anyway, the cape twirling was a nice intro, although there was a slight timing problem. Mark could have been a bit more passionate, although he wasn't bad.

Louisa and Vincent were not good. Maybe it was down to their music choice, but their routine looked too fast and had nothing of the elegance of Carole and Matthews. This is where Foxtrot can seperate the wheat from the chaff, since you need great body tone to hold your position while you dance to the slow rhythmn. In parts, I thought Louisa was just running to keep up with Vincent. Didn't like the bit where they ran towards teh side of the floor and then drew back. i thought she was going to topple over into someone's lap!

Claire and Brendan were OK, but body contact was dreadful and Claire displayed what one of my teachers sued to call 'ducks disease!" It was a nice restrained routine, but nothing in it or about it to blow me away. They're a middle of the road couple and I don't think they'll be in at the final
Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.

i seem to recall you having a canary yellow dress
ballroom the old style with the nets alf redmond had a picture of us in his folder
agree with all your comments regarding the competitors but also think jan + anton or peter and erin should have gone sat they were by far the worst couples
ray and camillas so called paso was awful it had absolutely no dancing whatsoever he just walked around with no recognisable paso steps

With lace over the bodice and ostrich feathers. It wasn't so much canary yellow, as soft lemon !!!

At least that's what I kept telling myself! Mum chose the fabric and since she was paying, it was hard to argue. I DID however put my foot down over the red dress dress (your red and silver suit with epaulettes). Mum wanted Nevtex red satin, but I held out for gorgeous scarlet georgette. I was right ... it danced beautifully
