Hrvy and Jamie are doing a lot dancing out of hold, I'm not sure I'd like either of them to win a ballroom competition. Masie is the best dancer but in this shortened year I don't think the quality is really there. She and Gorka have been dressed in unattractive clothes and just generally not looked all that appealing on screen. Hrvy seems really lovely and not at all annoying as I first felt but I think he is just a bit too young to really have broad spectrum appeal especially as Bill now has the chance to do the crowd pleasing stuff that he did earlier in the series. Do you think the producers tried to damp down the support for him in recent weeks? with gloomy staging and dances that didnt suit him. They have done that in previous years with likely winners. I expect they'll pull out the works for him now.

Who knows?

I agree with you I don't think the top of the quality is as good as usual with only Maisie and HRVY being really good.  That said I think all round the quality has been decent because bar one or two they could all dance and were half decent.

I also take your point about HRVY maybe being a bit too young to appeal to the Middle aged Mum that votes.

So all very open IMO.  Can't see Jamie winning surely but the other three all in with a shout.

Yes I think it could be decided on the night and that would be the most fare outcome. I do wonder though that a lot of people will tune in specifically for rappers delight and then it's all over. Bill Bailey is such an established popular figure that I imagine there will be a lot of good will for an 'old' winner - so long as he doesn't disappoint in a Susanna Reid way. Although maybe she was overrated from the start - I only saw the final of that series and on the night couldn't see her appeal.

Susannah was a good dancer though, not quite up with the best two or three maybe but I think she finished 4th or 5th from memory whereas Bill is very average at best, he doesn't do a lot wrong I suppose but he hardly knocks it out of the park like Maisie and HRVY does he.  IMO I'd rate him all round as about 6/10 dancer so for the good of the show (and my bank balance!) really hoping he doesn't win it.  The Winner's got to be better than 6/10 surely.

I agree about the the 6/10 but if you look how popular his very poor tango on Saturday was on Twitter I'm not sure people will be judging him in the same way. And the Rapper's Delight dance if performed well is certainly a crowd pleaser.

If he were to win it would be an unusual case, he's an odd favourite in an odd year but sometimes outsiders do become the favourite and win. HRVY is probably the more deserved though

So I think Bill will win if he dances well enough and HRVY doesnt do something mind blowing. There will be more viewers on the night than in previous weeks and I think they will be charmed by Bull

Charmed by Bull sounds about right to me if he wins!

I've always had this thing that it SHOULD be a dancing competition or otherwise what's the point in getting them to dance at all?  Bill is obviously not very good, Jamie is better and the other two are a mile in front of him so I just hope that when it comes down to it one of the best two dancers win it or it just makes a mockery of the whole thing.

In the past when say Ashley Roberts got beat at least the other dancers in the final were good so it wasn't so bad but Bill (or Bull) is very average and for me 6/10 shouldn't be crowned The Champion.

Have seen four different polls now.  All with HRVY well clear with about 45% to Bill's 32% so it's no over year eh.
