from tmix - the dances and details of the Lindy Hop-a-thon


Ashley and Pasha: Samba to Hot Hot Hot by Arrow

Lauren and AJ: Salsa to Familiar by Liam Payne and J Balvin

Stacey and Kevin: Paso Doble to Malaguena by Brian Setzer

Faye and Giovanni: Waltz to See The Day by Dee C. Lee

Charles and Karen: Tango to Eleanor Rigby by Big Country (originally by The Beatles)

Graeme and Oti: Quickstep to Sing Sing Sing by The Andrews Sisters

Joe and Dianne: Couples’ Choice – Street and Commercial to Jump Around by House of Pain


Lindy-Hop-A-Thon!

Also this weekend, all couples will take to the dancefloor at the same time for the first ever Lindy-Hop-A-Thon!

Each of the celebrities will be dancing the Lindy Hop with their pro partners.

The judges will then eliminate the couples one at a time. The longer a couple stays in, the more extra points they will win.

The first couple eliminated will get one point, the second to go will get to and so on. The winner will have seven extra points. These marks will be added to the scores out of 40 for their usual main routines.

I have to say.

I just can't 'talk up' my punts I try to be as fair as I can.  I just can't say "Brilliant, that was worth a 10" etc.  Just can't.

Now I've said many times I wouldn't mind Joe winning but that 'dance' he did tonight was just no way worth a higher mark than about 7 or 8.  Yes he did it ok I suppose and us lot on here couldn't do it but before him Ashley and Faye were both fabulous, you could easily give them 9's or 10's I get that, also Stacey at the end was just as good but - Joe come on.  I know I'm a bit old fashioned and stuck in my ways but to see some wonderful ballroom (he was very good last week yes I agree) and Latin stuff .............. then he does that.  It's just not on in my book and if he has to do it then give him the right mark.  That's just scandalous to give him a mark of anything over 7 or 8.
Report LOU MACARIS TARTAN B November 25, 2018 8:34 AM GMT
Looks like Ashley in dance off! ........... with Graeme.  Obviously judges saved Ashley but whilst she'd beat anyone in a dance off after another couple of weeks that won't apply as it's just public vote so looks like the final for Ashley but she won't be winning.  Perhaps it is a two horse race.
Report squares November 25, 2018 8:46 AM GMT
which suggests Ashley would have been bottom of the PV, and Lauren in the top two

Yes and Lauren polling well too.  I think you can make some sort of case for Charles but Lauren just not good enough and not great last night at all.  Who knows perhaps Lauren and Charles make Final 4?

tie probably crucial to Lauren
Report LOU MACARIS TARTAN B November 25, 2018 8:53 AM GMT
Yet the judges gave Ashley top marks in Lindihop when how could you really differentiate, they all looked good to me as they wizzed round so no more the judges could do.
Report squares November 25, 2018 8:57 AM GMT
those "thons" never really work from a viewing point of view - too quick, too much going on and hard to see how the judges arrive at their decision other that positioning the couples how you would expect them to over the series.

I don't think anyone who has topped one has one the show.  Like with the Blackpool LB, it's better to be mid div.
Report LOU MACARIS TARTAN B November 25, 2018 8:59 AM GMT
Yes I don't like them at all it's just a blur.  But like you say perhaps give the judges to give a helping hand to the better dancers .............. to no avail last night though!

I bet the judges are fuming when they see Ashley in the DO tonight!
Report hemsby November 25, 2018 9:01 AM GMT
On my calculations I’ve got Lauren minimum 3rd in PV,Charles minimum 5th.

Surprised by Lauren’s PV strength tbh.

Order maybe something like ...

Stacey
Lauren / Joe
Faye / Charles
Graeme
Ashley

?
Report LOU MACARIS TARTAN B November 25, 2018 9:04 AM GMT

Yes something like that.

With Ashley getting 6 points from the judges she only needed 2 points from the public to go through so she's obviously rock bottom in the popularity department.

Craig goes by when everything comes together - music, staging, look and dance.
