DS going into raptures over Antons music which is a good track as it is but not a classic foxtrot and before they count their 10's before they are given Katie has a stiff hold which will show in this dance - feel Georgia's ballroom hold is better

Is Anita's music more of a Tango? (Holly & Artem).

I think Team GG and Team KK music will suit them...
but I guess it means Kellie will wear cut offs again.

Not sure how well Helen will Paso or Jay Rumba.

So that just leaves Katie...

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

I hope Aliona has Jay moving & not just standing there with her dancing round him. Can't imagine Helen selling the Paso but hopefully I'm wrong. Kellie should have a better dress as Nancy? I want them all to do well this week - could do with really enjoying the whole show for a change!

I agree with you, Jo, re Jay and Helen. I have a feeling that the judges might use this week as a chance to boost Anton and Katie.

I think so too Salsa.

If Katie & Geo take the top spots and Jay & Anita are popular...
it puts Kellie & Helen in danger. Perhaps Helen to go?

right as only 6 of them will put my dance head on and put what I think of this weeks pick

1)  anita and gleb - AT not a great fan of AT myself, much prefer ballroom one - but for me to create the right feel and atmosphere  it has to have at least the right music - whilst I have no doubt it will be dramatic (maybe over so) will it work to ballroom tango style music? will be interesting to see how they play it

2)  Helen and Aljaz - Paso a dance of strength and great lines - shame about the music I absolutely do not like non spanish music for this dance. The music they have is dramatic and if Helen can draw on her acting skills she may pull it off - I feel it has the danger of being a bit weak - diffficult dance for her

3)   Georgia and Giovanni Foxtrot to Beauty and the Beast.  Feel that this could be a great dance for her if she can sort her shoulder lifting problem out - music is not perfect foxtrot but it is cutesy and with the theme etc could be right down her street.

4)  Jay and Aliona.   Nice music but not an obvious rumba just a slow track.  Whilst Aliona is more than capable of picking a rumba out  of it she must avoid going down the contemporary route - (even with Jay dancing contemporary at college) - it will alienate Len for one - if Aliona does a good Rumba routine with Jay actually moving could be a good dance for them

5)  Katie and Anton.   The music is a good song but not out and out foxtrot, for me Katie has not danced one dance this year without error (most not picked up) last week she kicked Anton twice without comment.  If she does it clean and gets topline right will score well

6)  Kellie and Kevin.  Everyone online seems to dislike the music choice etc but not me I do not mind it.   Last week Helen performed a lovely dreamy VW (if a bit too slow) and scored well if Kellie and Kev had come out this week and performed a 'straight' one it would have been compared directly with last week by the viewers.   With this choice they have a very recognisable tune and a very distinctive theme which will fit Kellie well.  Strictly seems to think VW are slow most of the time - it is known as the fast waltz (if you listen to Strauss his waltzes are not slow) and the signature of this tune is fine for VW.

Last year Frankie and Kev did a good VW to What's New Pussycat which was also jaunty like oom pah pah

So all in all no obvious bottom two and the Semis are anyones to take

Very hard to predict bottom this week. If you are right with the bottom 3, Bren, I think Anita will go if she is in the dance off with either of the others - just because I don't thin her technique is as good. If it is Helen and Kellie in DO I would like to think Kellie's technique would save her, especially as Helen didn't seem to have much self confidence about Paso on ITT last night. However, think it is very much up in the air and the final 2 will come down to judges scores on the night.
