Strictly Come Dancing Final

PersonalPosted by Foley Western Wed, December 18, 2013 12:24:32

Looks like this year’s Strictly Come Dancing winner will be a female with the first ever all-girl final taking place on Saturday and any one of them would be worthy of the prestigious GlitterBall Trophy. Sophie Ellis Bextor, Abbey Clancy and Susanna Reid went sailing through to the final, with Natalie Gumede surviving the dance off to join them.

It is hard to define a favourite as each week these girls put their all into their dance routines, and my does it look hard work. The judges are running out of nice things to say – even the grumpy Craig Revel-Horwood and have turned to picking up the tiniest issue. Scores have continued to impress these novice dancers with 10s been awarded for an outstanding performance, and the studio audience have been up and down in their seats giving standing ovation after standing ovation. Some of the performances have been mesmerising, some leave you gasping at some of the tricks they attempt and only a few leave you feeling a bit deflated.

Strictly seems to get better and better each year, even if at the start you haven’t heard of half the celebrities. By the time the show is heading towards Blackpool we all have our favourite celebrities, favourite professional dancers and favourite costumes. The professional dancers continue to push to achieve the extra wow factor and it is amazing to see a celebrity go from having two left feet to being whirled and hurled around the dance floor. You can see the chemistry between the dance partners and the trust they have in each other when you witness the tricks they include into their routines.

These four celebrities deserve to be in the final and regardless who eventually walks off with the Trophy, Saturday’s final is going to be spectacular. Their dance partners will be throwing everything they have got into making their routine the biggest and best performance of the night and hoping for that all important top score of 40!
