Hi Maisie. Where are the songs?

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

Thanks Maisie I like the songs for Alex / Joe. Contemporary for Debbie? Odd choice for Gemma. I just can't imagine her dancing to the song.

Not madly impressed with the showdance choices - but then they're often a bit of a damp squib to me! A few stand out for the right(Zoe and Ian, Alesha and Matthew, Tom and Camilla even though I never cared for him and, probably oddly, Caroline and Pasha) or all the wrong (Lisa and Brendan, Rachel and Vincent, Colin and Erin) reasons but for the most part they're just a bit <I>meh</I> as a rule.

I presume Giovanni intends to play to Debbie's balletic strengths; Gorka going for all-out showbiz, and goodness only knows what the other pros have in mind. I assumed Alexandra's song would be Joe's and Gemma's would be Alex's - I really can't get my head around what Aljaz is planning with that one!

Glad Joe has his VW from the judges as I loved that routine, and they've resisted the temptation to throw anyone under a bus. I wasn't a huge Louise fan last year but giving her the Cha x 3 against Ore's AS and Danny's Quickstep didn't seem quite a level playing field to me.
