Movie Week results start with a film tribute to how Karen and Kevin met, complete with 1950s drive-in styling (lol whaddasurprise). Although this version of reality reveals that apparently once upon a time Tristan and Joanne were married which is an…interesting thought. It involves a lot of jumping in and out of video screens and apparently was choreographed by a regular SYTYCD hip hop choreographer. It shows.
Len’s Glans touches on Jay’s Jive, and the Charlestons of both Kellie and Jeremy and is very complimentary and quite po-faced about all three. Less so Peter’s paso which gets lightly toasted by Craig, although it’s mostly just an excuse for him to show off his Spanish lines. He gets lightly mocked by the audience and goosed by Bruno for his troubles, what price artistry on this show, really? Speaking of Spanish Lines, Andrea Bocelli is here to sing a translated version of “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina” from Evita, whilst Aljaz and Janette whirl around romantically. It’s all about the couples this week isn’t it? I wonder what the opening routine would have looked like if it was choreographed around how Janette and Aljaz met. Bit less squeaky clean I’m guessing.
Our bottom 2? Boxers vs penguins as Ainsley’s cha cha faces off against Anthony’s paso doble. It’s a shame, because they’re both quite likeable and there are other people hovering around the duffer slots who are perhaps…less so, but in the end sending Anthony home to get proper rehab (no, samba does not come on the NHS for shoulder injuries oddly enough) feels like the right thing to do, as long as Oti gets a chance to truly shine next year in a talent sense as she did this year in a personality sense.
Next week : no theme. Yet. I think. Maybe it’ll be Grumpy Len Week and he’ll actually use a racial slur live against Giovanni who can say?
