And just like that, all the cards go up in the air, as the two presumed Internet favourites (Cloudia and Danny) land in the Bottom 2, and the Cliftons sail on to the final (Kevin’s fourth, Louise’s first, Karen’s fourth standing on the balcony screaming and crying that Kevin should win, yes even when she was also competing in it) on a wave of tears, particularly from Ore who is called safe first and doesn’t stop all evening. Our bottom 2 meanwhile have mixed emotions, with Cloudia and AJ landing on “sad” and Danny and Oti landing on “shocked” with the latter in particular saying out loud that she can’t believe they’ve fallen into the dance-off. As you’d expect Danny wins the dance-off, albeit in a debatable decision (he slips, but Cloudia’s posture looks so bizarre at points you half expect her to start doing the Exorcist Spider Walk) but Cloudia gets the sweetest forfeit of all – an official Best Bits Clips Package that she’ll no doubt have to watch again on It Takes Two 44 hours later.
Otherwise? A bird themed contemporary dance to Chandler’s Ear, a guest performance from Sting (…) and best of all, THE LAST EVER LEN’S GLANS! Even if you’re mourning our littlest dancers, that has to be a plus to take with you, right?
