Strictly Come Dancing Week 1 With Gleb Savchenko, Tristan MacManus, And More – Review Show & Dances

For those planning to watch “Strictly Come Dancing, it’s PREMIERE TIME!! Nathan has been warming us up for several weeks now for the show. If you haven’t read his recent blogs, you can do so here. In his latest blog, he told us the songs and dances for each couple. Anita Rani and Dancing With The Stars pro Gleb Savchenko will be performing a Cha Cha to ‘Rather Be’ by Clean Bandit. Jamelia and Dancing With The Stars pro Tristan MacManus will be Waltzing to ‘Do Right Woman, Do Right Man’ by Aretha Franklin. Nathan also informs us that the show today is an hour long and 6 couples will dance. Tomorrow the show is 1 hour and 20 minutes long and 9 couples will dance. We’re not sure when Gleb or Tristan will dance, but, we plan to post their dance videos as soon as we can in the space below for those who can’t watch or if you want to watch them again. Also, we’re going to sticky this post to the top of the page for today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday) to update on both shows and so you can find it to comment in. So, be sure you let us know what you think of everything in comments. Thanks, All, and DON’T FORGET TO VOTE too if you are able to! I’m so excited as I’ve never watched “Strictly Come Dancing” before. Thanks to Gleb and Tristan (and Elena Samodanova) for helping to bring fans from all over the world together. It’s so cool when you think about it. 🙂

ETA: And we’ve got our first update. Some behind the scenes action….

ETA2: Gleb and Anita just finished their very first dance. In my opinion, they were like a breath of fresh air out there. They started out at the top of the stairs and danced down to the floor (what a cool and clever intro). Anita smiled through out and they just had a blast out there (for what dancing is all about). She didn’t seem nervous at all. She was cute as can be. Gleb created such great choreo for their first dance. In my opinion, they set the tone of their partnership for the season. Total “rays of light”. I also loved how Anita isn’t afraid to laugh at herself…..and neither was Gleb in wellies teaching her to dance in the mud in their package. Hilarious. They scored a 6 (from the mean judge Craig and he even called them “fantastic”), and three 7’s for a total of 27. Stay tuned for video and let us know what you think of Gleb and Anita and tonight’s dances.

ETA3: Here is Gleb and Anita’s first dance….

For more videos, see the SCD official site.

ETA4: Here is the full package, dance, and judges scores in HD thanks to Claire. She worked so hard and into the night to get this up for us! THANKS CLAIRE!

For more complete video packages of all the couples, see Claire’s You Tube. If they aren’t all up yet, keep checking back as she’ll have them up soon.

ETA5: Added below is a fun gallery of HD screencaps by Claire (56 photos total). Scroll your mouse over the pic and click the arrows to see them all. They are so beautiful! To see more of Claire’s beautiful Galleries, see her SCD Photo Site. WELL DONE, CLAIRE! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Gleb and Anita -Wk 1  Cha Cha Cha

ETA6: What did you think of Tristan and Jamelia? I thought they took the stage with a lot of charm and elegance. Their Waltz was full of heart and soul. She made a few mistakes in her footing which caused her to get out of character a little. Though I agree with Bruno, they were like a dream out there. I think Tristan may have found his best partner yet (dance wise)? They scored a 4, 6, 5, 6 for a total of 21. Stay tuned for video. Hopefully, we’ll get video of the opening number too. Let us know what you think of the show!! Also, who were your very favorites?

ETA8: Below is a video of Tristan and Jamelia from the official site. We’ll try and get Claire’s version up (with the full package) soon as well as the opening number.

ETA9: Thanks to Claire for the Tristan and Jamelia’s complete pack and dance and the Pro Number as well!! More dances at her You Tube page.
