The movie themed pro dance this week features Giovanni as a humble cleaner who schemes of usurping Golden Age Hollywood Star “Aljaz Skorjanec” (not with that name hun, change it to “Alan Scorpiano”) and taking his place as the lead in a film also starring Joanne Clifton. And he succeeds! But Aljaz is kind of a dick so it’s ok, and in the end ALJAZ becomes a cleaner because that’s how Hollywood works. Lose one leading role and POOF it’s all gone! You’re done! See ya! Handsome men definitely don’t get chance after chance after chance until something sticks pay no attention to the Ryan Reynolds behind the curtain.
Len’s Glans this week features our LGBT judges getting their proper due, as Bruno and Craig are both tasked with making silly faces and nothing else, whilst Darcey clarifies what she meant when she was talking about Greg going in too hard with the lifts, and Len gets to tell us what both a coup de pique AND a fishtail are, in the context of dance. He doesn’t sadly go over Will’s salsa and tell us exactly what the problems with the content were, as I am sure we were all dying for. Him going over all 8 solitary bars of salsa with a smuggins look on his face. LEN VS WILL! CRAIG VS RINDER! DARCEY VS SOBRIETY! SEASON OF THE JUDGE FEUDS!
Our guest performers are Alfie Boe and Michael Ball, performing “Somewhere” from West Side Story. Exactly.
And so on to our results. Everyone having strongly predicted an Anastacia vs Naga Bottom 2, of course neither of them are there, and instead we’ve got Laura vs Tameka instead. So not quite the full fat outrage goodness of a Will or a Louise or a Daisy in the Bottom 2 but enough to get people rattled when Naga’s still walking around safe with a face like death (although hilariously she seems absolutely genuinely THRILLED to be saved – you never can tell I guess). Neither lady seems to particularly take it well, with Laura vibrating and crying and pouting during the vote reveal like she’s going to rip her wig off and let someone HAVE IT as soon as she gets backstage, and Tameka flashing her knee bandages to everyone all “YES I WAS INJURED BUT *I* STILL DID THE DANCE-OFF WHAT OF IT?”. It’s Tameka who goes home, in the end, even though she appears to marginally (marginally) outdo Laura in the dance-of.
And so we roll on to “Ed Balls Does A Paso” Week. Naga vs Anastacia for SURE next week thought right?
