Love Joe - hope he gets through to the final.

Thought he looked nervous in the first half, but once he settled down - terrific

Was she a bit wobbly at times? Maybe that's the wrong word - tentative? Not sure. It was still very good though.

Very pretty, very classy, but I agree Maisie. Given the rough handling she’s had of late, maybe the nerves or something got involved

Mollie looks rather uncomfortable

Date Posted: 09 Dec 2017 at 19:14
Not great from Mollie :(

Very awkward. I’m sure she’ll do a pretty Waltz, but that wasn’t good.

I hope Craig hasn’t just mobilised the sympathy vote!

I think Joe might get a lot of sympathy votes havong been killed off in Holby City.

Not keen on that from Gemma

Never watched it myself. Being a cynic, l assume he’ll be announced for the tour in the next week or so!

Thought Gemma committed the cardinal sin of being a bit... dull


Posted By: mikelincs
Date Posted: 09 Dec 2017 at 19:25
he's considering it still, but I think it's very likely

Think that was Debbie's worst dance - I expected her to tire near the end but wasn't great from the start.

Enjoyed Joe's dance, Alex good as ever Mollie should have gone weeks ago, Gemma could do better and finding Debbie's jive quite laboured

Laboured - that's it exactly!!

Debbie’s week for the popularity test? I’m not seeing what the judges are

Well she's played the age card...

Why does she always talk about her age?

loved that from Joe

Shame it went a bit wrong after that 1st lift - a few posture issues too? Still enjoyed it though but it could have been wonderful!


Posted By: BambionIce
Date Posted: 09 Dec 2017 at 19:42
Looked like a loss of balance coming off that lift and I hated the music choice. That apart, I loved it


Posted By: BambionIce
Date Posted: 09 Dec 2017 at 19:49
40 coming up?


Posted By: Maisie
Date Posted: 09 Dec 2017 at 19:49
That was good!!


Posted By: mikelincs
Date Posted: 09 Dec 2017 at 19:50
excellent, should be 40


Posted By: Maisie
Date Posted: 09 Dec 2017 at 19:50
Yep - think it will be a 40.


Posted By: BambionIce
Date Posted: 09 Dec 2017 at 19:50
She must be in the final now surely


Posted By: Maisie
Date Posted: 09 Dec 2017 at 19:57
That was nice - not wow, just nice.


Posted By: BambionIce
Date Posted: 09 Dec 2017 at 19:59
Pretty, sweet... nothing spectacular, but it’s good to see a ballroom routine with the old classic tailsuit!


Posted By: Maisie
Date Posted: 09 Dec 2017 at 20:05
I wasn't too keen on that either - bits of it felt like she was walking through it, as if just in training.


Posted By: BambionIce
Date Posted: 09 Dec 2017 at 20:07
I’m not convinced they’re the most “extraordinary” bunch of semi finalists we’ve ever had, but that was ok. Not a showstopper, but I enjoyed it much more than her rumba


Posted By: Maisie
Date Posted: 09 Dec 2017 at 20:14
Debbie much better in ballroom. Think Alex & Joe are the best over the two disciplines but agree BambionIce - not the best bunch and still no idea who people will actually vote to keep in tonight!!

Loved the AT even with the wobble, good to see Alex getting all 10's not keen on Mollie surprised she got such good scores Gemma okay tango agree with Craig, sorry to those who rate her but cannot take to Debbie at all

Oh dear, Bruno may just have doomed Debbie. That was hilarious!

I hate that blasted tooth-rotter of a song, but the routine looked really classy. She, Alexandra and Joe surely should be in the final.

The prospect of either Gemma or Mollie being there doesn’t thrill me though. I’m still trying to work out why having four in the final is a good idea!

We'll have voted, looking forward to the spoiler this evening be interesting to see who are going home

Thanks for the company folks hoping Mollie and Gemma will be in the DO, but wouldn’t be surprised to see Debbie there


Posted By: Bren
Date Posted: 09 Dec 2017 at 20:38
that silly 10 by Bruno for Debbie caused a tie which could help Mollie escape the DO for me she looked really bad as not of a standard for the SF

thought Joe undermarked compared to Debbie - Debbie grossly overmarked in Jive

think it could be Debbie vs Mollie DO


Posted By: Jo Bird
Date Posted: 09 Dec 2017 at 21:42
Grrr. The tie is bad news. Alex & Joe were the best tonight. Will be cross if either are in the D/O.

Joe's AT is my favourite dance this series.
Debbie is really really good for an older lady. Usually you get ploddy with no sense of musicality.
Alex is just superb and if she's in the bottom 2 it would be a travesty. I hate that she's getting so much hate on the internet. Poor girl.

Fave to win has been Joe and Katya for weeks and I'd still love them to win.



Posted By: Jo Bird
Date Posted: 10 Dec 2017 at 17:54
I think Joe & Katya will win now

Doing catch up and only just watched Saturday's show.
I enjoyed Joe's dances for being a little bit different and thought the story telling in the AT was brilliant. Katya looked stunning too.
Alexandra's VW was nice and I liked her salsa. It is not often on Strictly that you see an authentic salsa and that came close and was brilliantly performed.
Mollie's samba was messy but I liked her waltz.
I think Gemma tried really hard with her rumba and I actually preferred it to the tango.
I didn't like Debbie's jive and agree with Craig about her facial expressions. However, her foxtrot was very elegant.
For me Mollie was definitely the weakest on the night.
