I just realised - Nadine used to date Jesse Metcalfe too. So she has exes on both SCD and DWTS this year.

I don't get why Maisie is not getting votes   She's legit the best one there. This is Ashley Roberts all over again. Lame  

This tweet looks promising:       Could we be finally getting the first official name reveal? Fingers crossed! 😮

Sadly it seems, the ringers or often “the best dancer” of the series right from the start, struggles to get votes with the public due to a lack of journey or growth. :( It’s not too surprising seeing this over the years but def unfair and disheartening to these amazing dancers - that still put in the effort and hard work as the beginners do. :(

 

 

Results show coming up soon. I'll try to update on what happens, so we can know what happens for sure.

Really gorgeous ballroom group routine (with Dianne & Giovanni starring in it) at the start of the show! ❤️ 

 

Ranvir & Giovanni, Jamie & Karen and Bill & Oti are all safe! Congrats to them. No surprises there.

 

Caroline & Johannes are the first couple in the Bottom 2.

 

Week 6 style spoiler:

Bill & Oti have the Jive.

Fun performance from Billy Ocean and great dancing from Nadiya & Graziano and Neil & Nancy. 

 

From the judges talking bit: Motsi said she would have given Jamie & Karen a 10 too - but I think we all already knew that without her saying it. :haha:

 

Clara & Aljaž, HRVY & Janette and JJ & Amy are all safe. Really happy for Clara for escaping the Bottom 2, as she really needed that  or else she would have gone. 

 

Sadly Maisie & Gorka are in the Bottom 2 once again. Ugh poor girl. :(:broken:

 

Week 6 spoiler

 

Clara & Aljaž are channeling Tina Turner for their next dance. They did the Proud Mary moves, so hmmm maybe sounds Proud Mary Jive?? Although they didn't confirm or say that. Im hoping it's not that as Alexandra had a moment to that song/style just 3 years ago.

 


JJ & Amy has a dance where he will be wearing a kilt.

Maisie & Gorka vs. Caroline & Johannes 

 

Thankfully all of the judges saved Maisie! ❤️ Well technically Craig & Anton did but Shirley agreed this time so yay. Her dance-off of that Salsa seemed even better. I still feel so bad for Maisie landing down there again. Hopefully there’s a way she has a dance that connects with the public and she can be safe next week. :( 

 

Lmao thankfully Caroline didn’t do the lick on the arm move. :lmao: I think it’s a fair cut for Caroline to go now. She’s a naturally beautiful dancer but sadly I felt her run was pretty stagnant and she started off good but stayed on that level and didn’t really progress. I wish she could have. :( But she had a fun last dance. They had really nice and beautiful messages to each other.  

 

And oh yikes…. second series in a row where the Cha-Cha takes out Johannes. This seems to be his cursed dance.

Really glad Clara was able to survive and is doing ok in the voting I hope!

 

Really sucks about Maisie. I already dislike how the public so openly turn on women who are a) good dancers, and b) know they are good dancers! That seems to be what people say is turning them off Maisie, that she’s confident in herself and her abilities. It’s not only frustrating that people seem to want to turn that into a negative, but also it’s a gross double standard between men and women competitors as we know.

 

The part that saddens me about it the most is that she’s only 19. Kudos to her for being so young, kicking butt every week and owning it! I really hope that the public reception doesn’t dampen her spirit. To be so young and confident is amazing to see - I actually really like that we got this with Maisie and also Skai, two young women who either were, or gained confidence in themselves, and were always gracious when taking the judges’ comments on board.

 

It’s a shame to see Caroline go as early in I thought she could be a surprise contender. Unfortunately, I feel like this partnership just never really took off how we hoped it would.

I am ticked at this.  How is JJ escaping the bottom when two weeks in a row, he has legitimately stunk.

definitely the right person to go this week as i don't feel she improved much throughout the season :( bummed about maisie in the b2 again though i'm glad it was her over clara as that would've almost surely sent clara home

Ah yeah same to this. On an overall standpoint, withthe rumored Bottom 2s, I decided that was ~better to go with, so that Clara could remain in the show. But still felt so bad for Maisie.

Ugh at Maisie getting the Ashley Roberts treatment from the viewers. :broken: The British public really hate the talented females even more than the US public. 

Yep. :broken:

All so perfectly said, Lily! :yes: 

 

Ugh I always follow and read whats said on the Strictly social media and related forums, and always see comments of people thinking Maisie is ~so confident~ or ~so cocky~, which turns them from voting against her. :/ It's definitely not fair on her there - on her dance skill and confidence being used against her. :broken: 

 

And yah she's soo young, and also another factor - of her having to live alone away from her family for the first time in her life. As she (and others) have to live separately from their families with the covid restrictions. :( So I imagine this is all hard on her to not have her family comfort her in person, but props to her handling all of this so graciously and delivering great dances. ❤️

Ahh I know. I did think JJ was better this week (and fine with him making it over Caroline solely on this weeks dances), but he's my easy least fave left and I fear he's gonna outlast people I like more or my actual faves, which is everyone else. 🙈 Well I could be okay with Jamie going next but he's growing on me every week. :haha:

Ooh aww I thought this was a bit of a sad but uplifting post from Clara. She mentions how rehearsals went really well and she was loving the routine but then she started second guessing herself with the live performance - and how the performance went wrong. :( It always sucks when that happens. So it really was like what Skai went through.

 

She also mentioned that her Tina Turner song isn’t “Proud Mary” so that’s good she won’t draw comparisons to Alexandra’s dance.
