Strictly Come Dancing Week 8 With Gleb Savchenko, Tristan MacManus, & More: Videos, Review Show

Hi all, Heidi here. Vogue asked me to send you all her love as she can’t be here today. Please send her strength and healing vibes, as today is going to be a difficult day for her.  (((Vogue)))

She also asked me to put up this post for all the Strictly fans. I’ve not been watching the show this season, so I’m not sure what’s going on, but I did see in the last post who’s dancing what, thanks to Mr. A in the comments. I do have an objection to the Gleb hashtags which implies that he created that move he did last week – you know, the one he took from Derek and Shawn’s Mambo in 2012. Lucky for him he’s so good looking. 😉

Anyway, Gleb and Anita are apparently doing a Quickstep to ‘Don’t Get Me Wrong’ by The Pretenders.  I looked for a video but couldn’t seem to find one of Gleb doing quickstep.

Tristan Macmanus and Jamelia will be performing the Samba to ‘A Little Respect’ by Erasure.  If you want to see what everyone else is dancing, Mr A listed them all in the comments of the previous SCD post.

For more dance information on the other couples, see the official Strictly Come Dancing site. 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! Don’t forget Blackpool Week is confirmed for Week 9, so, we want to make sure our favorite couples get there. THANKS EVERYONE!! You’ve made this season of both versions of Dancing With The Stars a blast!

Here are the times and some Live Streams (works the best with a PC). (Check the Times for me – I simply copied from last week and it seems like the UK is a bit more fluid than the US.)

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Strictly Come Dancing Week 7 With Gleb Savchenko, Tristan MacManus, & More: Teasers, Flashbacks, Videos, Review Show

It’s Strictly Come Dancing time! It’s hard to believe we are in Week 7. Time flies when you are having fun. This week Gleb Savchenko and Anita Rani are dancing a Jive to ‘The Boy Does Nothing’ by former Strictly winner Alesha Dixon and they are dancing 7th!! Gleb hashtags #GlebSpecial” and “FlyingTeaBag”. I wonder what we’re in store for? The last time he did a Jive on DWTSRussia (with Adelina Sotnikova), he jumped off of a telephone booth. Remember this? #WayHot and #SoCool

Tristan Macmanus and Jamelia are dancing a Viennese Waltz to ‘Trouble’ by Ray LaMontagne. The last time Tristan did a Viennese Waltz was with Rachel Stevens on a Strictly Christmas Special last year. They were Tinkerbell and Peter Pan to ‘Please Come Home for Christmas’ by the Eagles. Is this not magical?

Elena Samodanova And Gleb Savchenko On The Cover Hello Magazine, Interview And Photos

If you live in Britain, be sure to pick up a new copy of Hello! Magazine. Elena Samodanova and Gleb Savchenko are featured on the cover. There is also an interview inside about Gleb, Elena, and his Strictly Come Dancing’s partner Anita Rani. Here’s a take from the link. Too fun…

Strictly’s sizzling new heart-throb Gleb Savchenko has told how he is enjoying having two women in his life. In his first interview along with his wife Elena Samodanova, the 31-year-old Russian dancer who is partnered with TV presenter Anita Rani, tells HELLO! magazine: “It’s great having two women in my life but one is work, the other is family. When I wake up in the morning, I go to work and dedicate all my time to Anita. And when I go home, I give all my love and time to my wife and daughter.”

Elena tells HELLO! she absolutely agrees with the thousands of viewers who have called him the “most attractive man ever”.

“I absolutely agree with them,” Elena tells HELLO! when asked what it is like to be married to a man whose physique and dancing have sent women all over the world into a frenzy. “He’s a really good-looking guy. The attention he gets happens everywhere he goes.”

Elena shares the secret of his appeal, by adding, “Gleb is also a really charming, warm and caring person. He is a wonderful father to our four-year-old daughter Olivia and a great husband. That’s the secret. Any woman would want the person he is,” says Elena, 31, a talented choreographer who dances professionally with her husband, and is a judge on Russia’s Dancing with the Stars.
