Louise's showdance music has depressed me, not keen on Adele either but that song has a bit more life to it than the Whitney one. Ore's should suit him.

The judges - do they choose one that they thought could have been better? What do we think they'll go for?

to take another slant on it Maisie (I thought the same as you until I talked to my bro who does a lot of showdance choreography)  he said:

Louise is reserved good technically but is not a show off - One Moment in time has dramatic highlights with lovely soft music perfect for Louise the music will make up for what she lacks in showmanship he bets Kev will do an AS style routine with loads of fast pivots and lifts in the highlights - what Louise is good at and he thinks it is a clever choice by Kev - a razzmatazz number was never going to suit her

Jo's choice for Ore is good cos he is a showman but not as clean on technique so will suit

I am not keen on the Adele song either think Oti might be tempted to go contemporary cos Dannny trained in it - that can go either way

so very open final still

will be interesting what way judges go if they pick a dance to improve for one then they must do that for all some say Danny has quickstep - which scored 39 so hardly a dance to improve on

I think Ore's song & Louise's song will really suit them.
Not sure about Danny's... Not a fan of contemporary.

If the judges are being fair they should pick Foxtrot
for Danny, Jive or cha cha for Louise and Tango or
cha cha for Ore.

Should be an interesting final with plenty of good dancing. It is really down to the popularity votes now. Shame I won't be able to watch it live!

Ore and Jo have the obvious standout showdance tune but I rather like the Adele track; just hope Oti doesn't throw too many styles at it. The favourite dances were pretty much a given I think, but it'll be fascinating to see what the judges have picked.

If they want the final to be the best possible, I'd love to see Danny's QS and Ore's AS again. I know they both scored well, but I want to see the best dances in the final, and I loved both of those. Given the likely style of Ore's SD though, I suppose it's unlikely.

I can't recall anything of Louise's that made me sit up and think "I'd love to see that again" and her showdance number... well, I'm glad to read your brother's view, Bren! My immediate thought was that it's a powerful, emotional song and those aren't traits I associate with Louise's dancing.

Kevin hasn't dropped a clanger with his showdances in the past: I'm sure he knows exactly what he's doing this time!

where Kev has been clever is the theme of it but we will see tonight

if I was picking a good dance of Louise it would be there waltz was the best celeb waltz I have seen for a long time so technically right she was even tracking her feet something I have never seen on a celeb

just some gossip  Gene Kelly's widow has flown in to go to the final to meet Ore - so I wonder if he will be doing singing in the rain as his judges choice - then again I got rythm is from American in Paris and Gene danced to that too

Goodness knows what the anti Clifton camp will have to say...
