How about more sprinkles of Nathan? He’s a hoot as always with his unique UK sense of humor as he reviews the Strictly Come Dancing Launch show and the couples who will be dancing this season. For those watching the show, see if you agree and let us know what you think as always (I love what he said about Gleb & Anita and Tristan & Jamelia. So, I’m good. 😀 ).
Blog 2: The Launch Show
Hello and welcome to my second blog in the series. This week I will be covering the launch show and all the goings on. The way I will structure this is talking about my thoughts on each couple and what I think their projection will be over the course of the series. So without any further ado…
The series started off in spectacular style with all the pros, judges and the presenters getting ready to board the “Strictly Express”. The setting was a quaint 1950s style English village. Fun fact this was set in a county (state) called Essex, a county that boarders London and to the north of my county of Kent. The train in question grabbed a lot of media attention due to the fact that the train was used in a porn movie, but enough of that I think. Particular highlights include:- Kevin in the shower (coz hilarious), Kristina reading the latest scandal the Daily Mail have embroiled her in, Pasha polishing his glitter ball trophy (ooo pardon), Natalie just being epic-mazing, Len telling Bruno to shovle the glitter in to the engine (you folks on DWTS are going to miss the codger so much), Darcey being a trolley dolly in a outfit fit for old time porn movies (Oi Nathan, I said enough of the porn talk. *slaps self on the hand*). Anyway, where was I on to the next part of the show….
The Strictly Express arrives at the Red Carpet show filmed the day earlier. This was broadcast on an Interactive Broadcast a few days previous to Saturday, but there was no live feed, so you did not see this. The Celebs and Pros reveal themselves in full splendor to the public. This is when the pros start a Cha-cha-cha to the Jennifer Lopez hit “Let’s Get Loud” on the red carpet. Then by some power of editing and a bit of sci-fi power, BBC also owned Doctor Who. So, it figures. This Cha-cha-cha then more “Cha-chas” into the studio and over 24 hours later to an amazing light show on the famous “Srticly/DWTS arches”. The presenters, Tess and Claude, join in and the “Lets Get Loud” segues into one of the biggest tunes of the year, a song that reigned supreme in the charts all January here in the UK. Next played “Uptown Funk” with Bruno surrounded by the female pros being-well-Bruno really. The female pros (especially Natalie and new Girl Otlile) do a Cha-cha-cha with Len. Darcey pranced around and Craig (boo hiss) does a Charleston (!?) with Kevin and Tristan. Then Joanne and Kristina danced and that was that really. Read more..
