The battle of ‘Eurovision’ meets ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ moves onto week number 2 and there are more hips shaking to make Shakira green with envy and send her back to Colombia to brush up on her Latin moves – ‘Waka Waka’
Week 1’s scores will be added to tonight’s and Sunday night will see the first contestant leave the show. We were concentrating on Blue’s Simon Webbe and Eurovision commentator Scott Mills. However we forgot that TV presenter Caroline Flack has also commentated on Eurovision for the BBC so we have to include her in the Eurovision Triple Threat on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. It was a triple Tango as that was the dance that our Eurovisioners did.
Week 2’s performances
Simon Webbe took to the floor and danced the Tango and looked sharp!
The Judges comments were as follows
Craig – “Didn’t set the world on fire” and a score of 5
Darcy – “Slick performance…keep the character in the dance” and a score of 7
Len – “Simon you have a queer left arm” and a score of 7
Bruno – “Efficient, cool clinical approach….I want to see your animal magnetism” and a score of 7
A Total score of 26. Add that to last week’s points and Simon has a Grand Total of 53 POINTS
Our Opinion – Simon gave us a titillating, tongue twisting, twerkingly tempting Tango. Our Score 7 points.
Caroline Flack was like Simon and dancing the Tango and she was “Fierce”. She made Beyoncé’s Sasha Fierce look like Little Bo Peep!
The Judges comments
Craig – “I wouldn’t like to come across you in a dark alley” and a score of 7
Darcy – “A fierce performance” and a score of 7
Len – “Came out full of attack” and a score of 7
Bruno – “Flack Attacks the Tango and an amazing leg” and a score of 8
A total of score of 29. Add that to last week’s points and Caroline has Grand Total of 56 Points
Our Opinion – “Last Tango In Paris has nothing on Caroline. Flack ain’t getting the sack this week”. Our score was 8.
Scot Mills continued the trend and danced the Tango to The Spice Girls ‘Stop’
The Judges comments
Craig – “You lacked any form of style” and a score of 4
Darcy – “Keep that fierce look throughout the performance… a big improvement” and a score of 5
Len – “If the Tango was a radio station it would be Radio 1 – Loud and Proud – though this was more like Radio 3” and a score of 6
Bruno – “It felt weird and laboured” and a score of 5
A total of score of 20. Add that to last week’s points and Scott has Grand Total of 36 Points
Our Opinion – “Stop right now thank you very much. My ‘Mama’ says it will be a ‘Goodbye’ for Scott. Our score was 3.
Where are our Eurovision dancers in the leader board?
Caroline Flack is 4th out of 15 competitors with an overall score of 56 points.
Simon Webbe is 5th out of 15 competitors with an overall score of 53 points.
Scott Mills is Joint 13th out of 15 competitors with an overall score of 36 points – Ouch!
The public will now vote for their favourites and their scores will be added to that of the judges and the lowest 2 couples will be in the dreaded dance off tomorrow night where they will dance for survival. The judges will save one couple. Our money is on Scott to be in the dance off and we get to see his Tango again. It didn’t “Spice up my life” tonight and I doubt it will again tomorrow. Could we get to see one of our Eurovision Trio fall at the first hurdle and get the dreaded Null Points!
We will add the videos for tonight’s performances tomorrow when they are uploaded. Trust me – they are worth the wait!
Tune in tomorrow to find out.
Who do you think deserves to go?
