Highs
Lauren and AJ’s Waltz
Lauren’s dress
Oti’s pants!
The group dance from the results show.
The graphics in the show, especially the stone skimming across the dance floor at the beginning of Stacey and Kevin’s Moon River Waltz

Lows
Graeme’s costume.
Shirley’s comments to Faye.
Shirley’s fake emotion in Ashley’s comments
Charles’s overdone emotion every week now – shades of Ore – and all trying to drum up sympathy for votes. It’s becoming tiresome.

Highs. Generally decent show all round with everybody trying and doing well.
Ashley's brilliant dance.
Wife cheering when Danny got the boot made me laugh.
Kate getting through because I thought she might be in danger.
Graeme getting to Blackpool because he's a genuine trier.
Oti's face because I think she thought they had lost after C raig's vote.
Claudia's dolphin comment.

Lows. Graeme's outfit had me head shaking right off.
Graeme's gym choreography, worst of the night. Luckily, he pulled it off faultlessly.
Joe's striding and stretching. Hope he listened.
Shirley's jive comments.

I loved loved loved the RAF tribute pro dance on Sunday night - and Amy excelled herself. I was wondering how and if they would do the 100 years anniversary of the end of WW1 - but they chose to do the RAF anniversary instead and I thought it was fab.
So glad that Kate is through to Blackpool - I did worry
Glad that Graeme is through
Really enjoyed Lauren's Viennese Waltz
Loved An ton and Luba's Viennese Waltz to the Bocellis on Sunday night...…………..long live dance!!!!


LOWS - not many - for me it was a really good show this week
Joe being overmarked
The whole Danny thing from start to finish

I've still not managed to see the main show yet although I did see the results show so know the outcome. I'll hopefully get chance tomorrow to catch up

Highs.
Many, right from the group dance start off and as a long-time admirer of Gloria Estafan, delight in seeing her.
All the dances and the obvious effort from everyone. As such I'll leave out singling anyone especially. I just enjoyed
the whole thing from start to finish.
Blackpool. Unbeatable.

Lows. None to speak of except C raig being a drama queen as ever.

HIGHS
The music and the choreography (except for the track that Lauren and AJ used)
The very good use of the backing dancers (Johannes was a real star - he seemed to be popping up everywhere)
Charles and Karen's Samba
'That' Jive!
The sheer enthusiasm for the show from all concerned...……...in fact I loved the whole show from start to finish

LOWS
None at all this week except I felt sorry for Lauren and AJ as it wasn't really their dance this week...…….but she still got through!

Highs', like Allsewn I go for: Faye's waltz, Stacey's Paso plus Ashley's Samba, all top notch. In general, the show quality was pretty good all round. Graham was always going, it was his time whoever he faced from higher up the ladder because Lauren has the popularity and someone has to go. I think she'll see off Charles before she leaves (if she leaves, that is) purely on the same popularity. It isn't even beyond the bounds of possibility that she may go on and win it.

Lows' A couple of dodgy music choices and not over impressed with Joe's offering at all. It might have been well done enough for what it was, but it could have backfired but for the judges. Tens were a joke.I just want the winner to get there on dance merit, not popularity. Same with Lauren's offering, it wasn't grade one at all. Choice of choreography is as important right now as the dancing.
C raig's crass behaviour to Graeme.
The daftathon. Proved nothing at all. I'm betting the live audience were as baffled as the T.V viewers.

Anyone else out there...…

Highs
Enjoyed 'Musicals' night more than what I thought I would. The 'toons' were much better than I thought they would be and the standard of dancing was amazing.
Ashley's quick step
The lonely Goatherds!
Lauren's lovely routine
Group n umbers on both nights - Mamma Mia and 'Rhythm of Life'

Lows
Shirley's critique of Ashley
B runo giving Joe a '10'

Highs

I've watched Musicals week three times now, one of the highlight nights of the series imo
Lauren getting a standing ovation from Shirley (ok, so I normally complain about the judge's lack of objectivity, but made an exception here!)
Johannes....he must have a partner next year
Lovely words from Charles at his exit, plus I think he brought out a better side of Karen this year
I noticed the judges were all very careful to explain why they chose Ashley over Charles in the DO, i wonder were they reprimanded for the 'no brainer' insults which they gave Graeme the previous week.

Lows

Did feel sorry for Ashley in her second DO
Creepy goats, creepy puppets...wasn't a fan of Faye's charleston
Can't believe there's only two more shows Crying or Very sad

Highs: Good show overall, good performance by everyone and Charles and Karen's graceful exit. Asley's great repeat performance in the dance off.

Lows. The unfairness of putting Ashley under undue stress and mental pressure from knowing she shouldn't have been in the dance off once, never mind twice.

While both the main show and the results show were indeed overall good shows, these were the high and low points for me.

Highs
Lauren and AJ’s American Smooth and their reaction to avoiding the Dance Off.
Faye and Giovanni
Mamma Mia routine
Rhythm of Life Routine
Neil and Katya’s routine to We Are The Champions
Charles and Karen leaving

Lows
Stacey and Kevin’s American Smooth and Stacey’s costume
Charles and Karen’s Rumba
