Sam +/- Vicky is STILL better than Kyran
Hayley annoys me as her shoulders are higher than her ears
As for Ray he knows he will win they even included the jive steps in his duel segment.
Why have an all stars when the winner will be expected. At least on DWTS no one knew who will win and we were surprised when Melissa Rycroft won it
They go on and on at Beth about performance but they never criticise for Gurning a la Susanna Reid in fact the icy elite four bloody actively encourage indecent teeth exposure in the "fast" routines and actively encourage Pouting a la Victoria Beckham in the slower numbers

I am started to get a little bored of DOI and contemplated four or five times today whether to watch it but i have and will try to because of you lot. But i am craving the Ballroom SO BAD and can't wait when DWTS starts back again. At least I know what I am talking about.

But one thing I think about is I wonder how DOI would have turned out if BBC still had the show and we would be talking about Strictly Ice Dancing instead

Notice  how they're making much more use of the pros in routines this year - maybe there is some truth in the rumours (which have resurfaced again today) the show will go on without Torvill and Dean.

A great show overall tonight with some great routines, though I wish the duels features more of both pairs actually on the ice together.   The voting is damn predictable due to Robin's casting vote (would be fairer to score them and based it on that) - I agree Sam clearly won the first but he never had a chance and unfortunately I stand by my earlier prediction of him being in danger.   I think he'll be in a skate-off and we'll see a champ go tonight - Bonnie will likely get the votes she needs and to be fair did a great routine.  

Could go either way with Suzanne and Beth - if anything Suzanne's fall will help them and it was a great routine IMO, but I didn't like the performance at all.   Similarly I thought the criticism of Beth's performance was rather harsh and that could go in her favour too.

Good though to have a break from the usual routine of VT, Performance, Judges but I think we'll lose someone a couple of weeks early as a result tonight.   As much as I like Bonnie I would like to have seen her and Gareth go leaving the six champs to fight it out.

Bloody awful I suspect - the one thing Dancing on Ice has going for it is it's not Strictly!

You don't seem to like Vicky very much. :(

Loved that opening :)

IMO - duels

Kyran was better than Sam tricks wise.  Sam always skates better.  Tough one.
Gareth is better at skating than Bonnie, but it was sweet.  Gareth to go through.
Beth and Hayley my fave duel so far.  Very close again, but I'd put Hayley through.
That was brilliant from Ray and Suzanne - Ray through, but Suzanne so should not be in the skate off.

Personal opinion but I can't stand Strictly.   It's better than it was but I've always found it quite exclusive, while I think DoI has always been a bit more inclusive and a bit more fun - something I'd also say for Dancing with the Stars which IMO is leagues above Strictly.

It's something that the BBC has a problem with across the board - it just takes itself too seriously when it comes to entertainment.  That's the reason So you think you can Dance just didn't take off, and a large part of the reason The Voice hasn't become the big breakout hit the BBC want it to be.

So relieved Beth and Suzanne got thru on the vote
but I'm afraid Hayley's destined for the final.

Jason, Ashley and Karen will make sure of it

Yes - I think it's quite clearly a Ray, Suzanne and Hayley final now, which I guess quite appropriately puts three of the most successful pros in the final too.

Agree Brekkie. Who do you think will win? I'd like Suzanne but think it will be Ray.

I did watch the show on catch-up. (can't stick the bleakley woman, so skip her- my husband says i say this every week when watching!!!!)
I just don't like watching Kyran, can't explain why, I love watching Ray tho, he such a natural dancer/skater over the ice. As good as the pro's imo
In the opening dance i thought one of the 'girls' was a man in drag btw!!! don't know who it was, someone a bit butch lookingLOL
I would like to see a Ray/Suzanne/|Beth final tho,not a fan of Hayley or Dan really.
I did love Bonnie in her 'red outfit' skate though.
