I think Claudia & Danny have got better music than Louise & Ore.

I wonder if there might be a Clifton dance off looming...

personally dont think so Claudia's dancing nowhere near as good as Louise imo and cannot see her pulling a rumba off  and QS will be difficult with height difference

Agree Bren. Louise is a better dancer.

I just think this might be the week when Claudia
comes of age with grown up dances and music.

I'm probably wrong ...

you could well be right Jo anything can happen as we well know

with my teachers head on Claudia's Jive was awful not the routine but the fact Claudia herself could not do kick and flicks at all - as quickstep is a fast dance with flicky feet thing she may well have a problem with the technique.  That said Darcey more or less admitted she did not look at Danny's feet (so poor in that tango) and whilst his samba was great performance was littered with technnique errors the judges chose to ignore.

if I was to make a wild guess would not be surprised with a louise v claudia DO

I agree that rumba could be difficult for Claudia - she "might" get technique but there should be a lot of emotion involved too. I fear for Louise with a samba. I would have thought Ore should be able to smash QS and AT and Danny will be able to "con" with his smooth showbiz style in salsa and AS. Sorry if that sounds biased against Danny!

I agree re Danny his samba was littered with technique errors and the only one who picked up on it was Karen Hardy.  

Louise's cha technique was good on cha cha thon so have a feeling she will nail a proper carnival ballroom samba which is what Kev will do, until danny got his 40 Frankie and Kevs samba was the highest scoring one.

I feel Claudia will struggle with QS technqiue judging by her jive

did anyone see ITT tonight?

Claudia looks a bit flat in QS
Louise not got samba technique yet but think it will come tango looks good
Danny Salsa action bit flat AS looks ok
Ore's AT looks good!!!

I saw it Bren.

Just from Waite's warm up... Think Ore & Louise both look good.
I'd like to see one of them knock Danny off the top spot.

Was nice to hear Oti talking of the Cliftons - on DS they would have you believe they dont like each other but Jo is one of Oti's best friends and she spoke of how much she looks up to Kevin :)  I just want best 3 in final

Watched it too - was surprised to hear Oti saying she used to have posters of Jo up in her room, is she much younger? I thought she was about the same age.

BBC website says Jo's 33 and Oti's 26.

Thanks Jo, 7 years - more than I thought! Think Jo looks younger than 33 & Oti older than 26.

Jo has been around the dancing scene so long from age 5 won everything in site with Kevin until age 15 then went to europe to train at diablo -  Oti probably followed her from young age remember our young competitors years ago wanting to follow in Kev and Jo's footsteps

Kylie Minogue for an Argentine Tango - it's almost as if TPTB are trying to stop Ore getting into the final!

Not surprised at Danny's music being 'perfect' - can they just call him the winner and have done with the whole debacle?
