Strictly Come Dancing 2014, Week 10 Results

tess claudia 10

The group dance with a bundle of extras was confusing yet had good symmetry moments with a well danced Irish Jig. That blonde dude could get a job on Strictly next year maybe? Oh it was the cast of Lord of the Dance, Tess tells us.

Tess and Claudia return tonight with the results.

Making it through to the Quarter Finals next week is, in no particular order, – Simon and Kristina. Also through are – Caroline and Pasha.

The first couple to face the dance off later is – Mark and Karen.


Andre Rieu and the Johan Strauss Orchestra with Alfie Boe

Foretelling a magical tale with pure sound and beautiful voice, all involved made this joining of two classic legends outstanding. Amazing talents.


Len’s Lens

Claudia’s stunning legs in a short dress looked great for her, have to say. Simon’s footwork was under Len’s guidance. Darcey talked about Pixie’s ballet moves. Craig’s score of 5 for Jake was under scrutiny. Claudia pointed out that “somebody bumped into him” but Craig defended the need for floor maintenance. The extra dancers received criticism as Claudia noted and asked Len if this was a valid choice. Len defended the decision. Bruno discussed Caroline’s Charleston. Craig was tempted to give a ten but defended his reasons why it was a little short. Bruno was then seen suggestively pouted a Tulip around his mouth and face towards Len.

The swing a-thon in a group Waltz is back next week too.

The results are back in with Tess now. Back again, still in no particular order, are – Pixie and Trent and Frankie and Kevin.

The second couple in the bottom two is – Sunetra and Brendan leaving Jake and Janette to dance again next week.

The dance off


Sunetra and Brendan


Girl from Ipanema – Michael Bolton

Much more relaxed second time around and more graceful than before. When pressure is on, improves much more than usual. Probably not enough to save considering ‘fancy me favourite’ taking off clothes Mark. She should stay after better dance off.

Mark and Karen


Viva Las Vegas – Elvis Presley

scd 14 mark 10

Mark’s lack of charisma continues to show no ethusiasm or pace. Timid, limp and relying on sad moments of stripping his shirt off. Wiggles hips again to save self. For a so called hunk, the only thing Mark seems to have is ‘flabs’ not abs. Terrible footwork and arm moves. Standing on spot dancing shows no attempt to dance at all.


The Judges Vote

Launch Show

The judges vote to save. In the event of a tie, leading judge Len has the casting vote.

Craig – Stood out was Mark and Karen.

Darcey – Save is Mark and Karen.

Bruno – Mark and Karen.

Len – Did agree. Mark and Karen.

Doctor Toe-No-ed!

Hold Me Down

jls scd 9

Smooth, tender R’n’B love song from the foursome whilst maintaining a dapper sense of style and originality in attire, also showed their maturity in their performance.

Len’s Lens

Fabulous dickie bow and chevron tissue thingy. Darhling.

Fabulous piece of equipment versatile, able to do dust work Bruno claims, but no Fern return to sweep the floors.

Bruno of his chair again.

Shortly we head back from Claude to Tess for the rest of the results.

Also making it through to the next week are – Denise and James, Dani and Vincent.

Couple dancing again in bottom two are – Nicky and Karen.

Alfie Boe

Bridge Over Troubled Water

alfie boe scd 9

The smiley eyed former mechanic with worldwide success gave a powerful rendition of a classic track adding tone and charisma to the vocals whilst joined by dancers Artem and Aliona. Ending on a powerful and supreme note with pure essence.

Dance Fusion, new to show one piece of music two dance styles.

Mixing two dances into one. Its different, but also very risky to removing fan base. The group elimination dance was fun, lets bring that back too. It may need something new, but this seems rather pointless. We hope were wrong, but… we shall have to see.

The dance off

Michael and Natalie

Mechanical arms and good twirls with minor hip action trying. Good legs side to side. Limp in energy slowing down. Arm extensions fair but flimsy on end. Rather loose in part and devoid of enthusement. Good effort, beaming smile and feel of having a go yourself.

Nicky and Karen

Creeping up on Karen, side to side quick feet remain good. All a little slow and uninteresting. More attack of a paso doble than Tango. Good spin around lifts carried by Nicky. No qualities of Bond, every bit boring. Slight improvement but still off in parts.

The Judges Vote

scd 9 result

Craig – absolutely sensational second time round.  Nicky and Karen.

Darecy – both upped game tonight, but save Nicky and Karen.

Bruno – really have to go with couple with License to thrill, Nicky and Karen.

Len – It was unanimous, Len agrees.

Michael Vaughan – “thoroughly deserved” he said of friendly rival Nicky going through. “Had a ball, (Nat) this is the real winner” he complimented his dance pro Lowe.  Natalie responded – “So incredible” of cricketer Vaughny.

Taking their last dance Michael and Natalie will be missed in the completion, adding fun, beaming smiles and blokey joy to all looking.

Now the competition is getting very serious. All are ‘strong’ candidates, which will see a few weeded out soon enough. Dance Fusion’s begin next week.
