It’s finally here….the week we’ve all been waiting for as the contestants of Strictly Come Dancing go to Blackpool. I’m so excited and if you don’t know about “Blackpool”, see this video that Andrea recorded for us. It’s …well…magical….
For the dances, Anita and Gleb will perform the Paso Doble to the dramatic ‘Malaguena’ by Connie Francis. We are in for a #GlebSpecial indeed as his Paso’s are always off the hook. Jamelia and Tristan are doing a Quickstep to the 1960’s classic ‘I’m A Believer’ by The Monkees. Watch out, they were all smiles on ‘It Takes Two’ this week. Nothing is getting them down not even a silly dance off any more. If you want to see what everyone else is dancing, Mr A listed them all in the comments of the previous SCD post. As always, let us know on all of your thoughts in comments. Who did you like the best and who will be in the dance off and go home? Feel free to rank them if you like too. Lastly and more importantly, BE SURE TO VOTE right after the show! THANKS EVERYONE and special thanks to Miss Heidi for covering me last week!!

Dancing With The Stars pro Derek Hough and contestant Alek Skarlatos (and his friends who stopped the terrorist attack in France) made People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” Edition. To see a photo of Derek, see Pure Derek Hough. Below is an instagram courtesy of Alek. Thanks to Jennie and Maxine for the heads up for us.
Not only who’s going to win, but in what order are they going to finish?? You’ve seen the numbers going into Monday night, and you’ve seen the numerology/astrology. Now, it’s time to share who you think is going to take home the shiny disco ball.
I’m torn, as always, when it comes to picking a winner. EVERY metric that I usually use to decide who’s going to win a given season (and our record is pretty good here, I must say) is telling me that Bindi is going to win. But, by the same token, I can’t get past two things – she’s up against a Backstreet Boy and a National Guard vet/hero AND she has Derek for a partner. The latter is a problem because he’s won five times AND I have to wonder if his fans have gotten complacent. More often than not, this inner struggle I have to decide is when I’m least accurate because I tend to go with the more conservative approach (for me) and say that, despite everything telling me it’s true, that Derek’s partner won’t win. This season, I’m going to break that habit, go out on a limb, and say that Bindi is going to win this thing. Eeep. I hope I didn’t jinx it. I think Alek will be second, Nick third and Carlos fourth. I may revise this when I do the final numbers post of the season on Monday night. Read more..
Alek Skarlatos And Lindsay Arnold talked to Good Day LA today about the Dancing With The Stars finale, the Paris attacks, and more. These two are already winners no matter what happens Monday and Tuesday night.
ETA: On the same day Alek did his interview with Fox11, he met war hero Captain Florent Groberg. They talked a little on Dancing With The Stars at the end. Thanks to @TweetTV for sending and my apologies to her for not understanding her tweet yesterday when she first sent this.
Carrie Anne Inaba talked with TV Guide about the strengths and weaknesses of each finalist on Dancing With The Stars. To see how she weighed on each of them, see this link. Below is a small take from the link….
“I think it’s going to be a very, very close run,” Inaba tells TVGuide.com. “I hear Bindi’s name come up a lot when people are talking about who they think is going to win. And yes, she’s got this incredible personality and she’s done consistently well. But … not to bring her down at all, because she’s absolutely incredible, but when you’re that good every time, the level of expectation is very, very high. And I think she’s shown us so many incredible sides of herself, I wonder what she’s going to show us for the finale. Because you could be great all season, but if you don’t win that night, you don’t win.”
Any of the other three finalists – Nick Carter, Carlos PenaVega and Alek Skarlatos – could give the young Aussie a run for her money, Inaba says.
“Bindi’s been strong and she’s been the leader horse out in the front, but I feel like these other guys, the three men, are right on her tail,” Inaba says. “And [among] the three of them, I feel like it’s a neck-and-neck run. Maybe Nick is just a hair ahead of the other guys, but who knows? Because they’re all on this incredible growth trajectory.”
One thing Inaba can guarantee is that the pros will be going for jaw-dropping moments – which could either be amazing or totally backfire. “I’m hoping that they will make creative choices that are great,” she says. “Sometimes the pros get ambitious and they want to go for the fan vote, and you’ve got to be careful. I think this year, because it is so tight scoring-wise, everybody’s really close to each other, I think they’re going to take some risks. And I just hope that they’re risks that will pay off for them. Carlos’ risk last week, I didn’t care for it. I thought that it was distracting to the dance.”
The two-part finale will see the finalists performing a number of routines, one of which will be a redo of a dance they’ve already performed, chosen by the judges. (“That’s my favorite part of the season, when we get to go into the studio and work with them a little and interact with the contestants, because we have such limited interaction with them throughout the season,” Inaba admits. “It was fun to get to know them up close.”) Also, for the first time, the finale will include a live segment broadcast from The Grove.
