yes that's right FIVE dances!!

Here are the details:

1. They do their favourite ballroom dance
2. They do their favourite Latin dance
3. They do a Viennese waltz
4. They do a freestyle routine
5. They do a routine to a piece of music chosen by the judges. Both have to dance to the same piece of music.

OVER KILL??

With the VW do they do the same routine as before?

Honestly Bren, you're just not reading my posts


I expect it's cos we have a two couple final.

I think Mark & Karen are doing tango (ballroom) and salsa (latin). I read somewhere that both couples will dance the VW at the same time.

I think they'll save the showdance/freestyle for the results prog.

Could be overkill, could be brilliant

*passes large hot toddy over to Bren*

Hope you're feeling a bit better!


It's a lot of dance but three of them they've done before, I expect they'll adapt something from earlier to fit the judges' choice and, if they have any sense, they'll have had a showdance up their sleeve for a couple of weeks......

I do wonder if it's some sort of 'payback' by the BBC over that 'special twist' business when the BBC wanted to bring someone back in and the celebs & pros said no? With only two couples in the final they have to do something to make a show of it......

I'm looking forward to it and at least we won't have what we had last year when Zoe & Ian never got the chance to do their showdance (or did they do it and it didn't 'count'?)

its a lot for the dancers- but it may be ok if they split it between the two shows...and then are all the previous contestants dancing as well?

confuddled again...seems like a lot of dances...I agree, the risk of overkill is certainly present...but I bet come Saturday I just love it...

do we know if there is a celeb performance (singing?)

The Judges Choice will be an interesting one...I don't really know that much ... is it the judges choose the music (same for both couples) and then the couples have to "make their moves" accordingly?

I've dosed myself up and dragged myself to the dance school to close it down so Im finished now until my birthday on the 6th when we re-open didnt time that very well did I?

Just hope It goes away now - think a nice hot toddy with plenty of 'christmas spirit' would do just nicely now

Aw hon, have a large one Hope you feel better soon.

Five dances for the Pro's is run of the mill, especially since they're only ninety seconds long and they're used to dancing for much much longer. But for the celebs it will be murder, even after three months of training. Can't help thinking that they will sacrifice substance for staying the course by the end!

I think it will be split between the two shows, because in the last series we had three couples who danced two dances each plus a group VW. Then we had an elimination and the final two went on to dance their showdance. This meant there was eight dances in total, but the final two couples danced four dances each.

Anyway, from the training footage I see that Mark and Karen are doing their Salsa and Matt and Lilia their Waltz. Don't know about anything else but Mark and Karens AT will surely be danced again

Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.
