Strictly Come Dancing 2013, Week 8 Results: Blackpool
Tonight’s glitzy results come live from the Blackpool Tower. The first couple making it through is – Susanna and Kevin. Also joining the show next week is – Abbey and Aljaz, Ashley and Ola. The first to grace the danceoff is – Mark and Iveta.
Music of the night
Added with a tender routine with Anton and Iveta, Andreu Rieu gave yet another stunning performance without one note improper with his own orchestra. Flawless once again.
More round up came from the protruding lens. Nothing of interest was seen.
The rest of the results are revealed now by Tess. Making it through in the second batch of results is – Patrick and Anya, Sophie and Brendan and Natalie and Artem. The couple joining the bottom two for the danceoff is Fiona and Anton leaving Ben and Kristina homefree to next week.
The fourpiece boyband gave an extremely shouty and awkward song added with Marvin’s awful miming on offer. It was off key, had weird staging and was trying so desperately to have an electric sound which should not have been attempted. The R’n’B pop band should not do something they can’t handle. They are then overexposed as now. It didn’t work. Oh. And that Marvin is presenting Series three of The Voice UK soon. Now it become all so clear why they were there.
The dance off
Mark and Iveta dance off against Fiona and Anton. Both performances were once again the same as their performance earlier, however both looked more at ease this time round.
The vote has put both couples on equal par. It’s a tough call as to who should go. Fun with Mark or give Fiona another chance. All in all, we would choose Fiona, ultimately to stay but its tight. To improve she needs to really go for it without too much seriousness in step approval.
The Judges Vote
The judges now vote. In the event of a tie head judge Len, as always, will have the casting vote.
Craig – Couple I would like to save, Fiona and Anton.
Darcey – Like to save is Mark and Iveta.
Bruno – Couple like to save is Mark and Iveta.
Len – (Now has the deciding vote) – Very close thing. Gave them both 8’s. Danceoff you up your game or nerves. For that reason I’m going to save Mark and Iveta.
Bond Girl and Author Fiona Fullerton flutters away from the show. Fiona said of her parting ways the show was “like being a guest at the best party in the world.” She tanked Anton for being “unbeleivably patient.”
Anton gave praise to his golden-eye. “This show is made fun by the people we get to dance with. Lovely.”
Fullerton left with a grateful and cheerful end to the Strictly experience.
