Sparkly new thread.....

AndiMac Sun 18-Nov-12 13:02:37

Ooh, I see this thread is almost full. I've taken the liberty of starting a new one here dahlings.

Don't give James Jordan all the credit for the charleston. I was watching ITT and he said himself all professional dancers get in help for the choreography of the charleston.

bruce is getting worse Join our campaign to BANISH BRUCE dilys*?

DilysPrice Sun 18-Nov-12 11:26:07

Bruce was off-balance from the very beginning of his post-dance interview with Richard. He started off by being very flustered about the "hilarious" ending where Richard dumps Erin in favour of the muscle Marys because he is LOLGAY, and was muttering about not knowing what to make of it. Richard then went off piste, encouraged by Darcy's unfortunate comment and was definitely making comments that were not suitable for the teatime audience, and Bruce did need to shut him up but did so in an inelegant way.

I do think Bruce and Len have a homophobic streak though. Len has got a grip over the years (and he's very close to Bruno) so he's not as bad as he used to be, but Bruce is getting worse,

Interesting Shotgun IMO there should be a level playing field in SCD. or would that be boring?

awaynboilyurheid Sun 18-Nov-12 11:10:41

Have to say loved dvo and Jame's charlston but its all down to james great choreography, almost like watching two professionals!but I still really liked it, Also like Danny and Vincent, and Flavia and louis I liked that they changed it a bit and made it into a modern dance at the end but judges didnt agree how dare they criticise Flavia, still want to tell Nicky to actually look at karen all v odd , and even though I love the way Lisa really goes for it in the dances I felt after the dance she put on the whole I'm crying with suprise at the audience reaction , it just seemed fake but thats probably v cynical of me.

ShotgunNotDoingThePans Sun 18-Nov-12 11:07:59

They did; and I deffo remember her saying in interviews that she was losing loads of weight and struggling to keep her 'curves' from the hours of dance rehearsals she was having to do.

Mrsjay Sun 18-Nov-12 11:05:06

Lol at the show is camp as row of tents that's why we love it too isn't it?

oh god yes grin

Mrsjay Sun 18-Nov-12 11:04:38

DVO won't win the voters wont let her win they like to be entertained as well as them being good dancers although I wanted chelsee to win over Harry Mcfly last year he was the better dancer but i liked her more,

ppeatfruit Sun 18-Nov-12 11:03:38

Lol at the show is camp as row of tents that's why we love it too isn't it?

It really doesn't seem fair to put DVO in it; didn't someone upthread say she deffo dances properly in Chicago.

Mrsjay Sun 18-Nov-12 11:02:59

male dancers arent necessarily gay

no of course not but he must have worked with many gay entertainers in his 100 years of being in the biz

Unacceptable Sun 18-Nov-12 11:01:35

I'm not sure that Bruce is even close to being a Homophobe! He's past it and a crap presenter but Homophobe? No. Reckon his attitude towards Richard is more to do with 'Dicky' being an actual dick!!

If anyone could PM me the result I'd love to know it. I would like to be prepared incase it's like last week. My DD howled and cried for half an hour because Fern and Kimberley were in bottom 2. We had to rewind it once she'd composed herself to see who actually went!

slartybartfast Sun 18-Nov-12 11:00:28

i dont think dvo is going to be popular. she has an unfair advantage. and the public dont like that.

slartybartfast Sun 18-Nov-12 10:59:49

I SPOSE he doesnt want to put off other homophobes. and male dancers arent necessarily gay.

Mrsjay Sun 18-Nov-12 10:58:38

I am going to have to pay more attention to bruce I can honestly say I havn't noticed all his words merge into 1 blah, DVO smile is vey fixed and her applauding other contestants is too enthusiastic , I saw her real smile last night and it is different from the insane fixed grin,

ShotgunNotDoingThePans Sun 18-Nov-12 10:55:31

I think that must be it - explains why the charm was lacking from the Charleston. Plus the fact any seeming 'niceness' she displays comes across as fake and down to her 'consummate pro' status.

I've often notice Bruce try and put the brakes on if there's too much phwoarness emanating from the gay contingent - a lot of 'now now, that's enough - family show' type comments.
It's okay for him to ogle the young, buxom female contestants, obv.

Mrsjay Sun 18-Nov-12 10:46:10

loving Danny and Vincent. He deserves a shot at winning (he was robbed the year he had Rachel). Don't like DVO - can't explain why.

I want them to win DVO has no sould that is why you don't like her wink she is so professional that she is boring to watch

Mrsjay Sun 18-Nov-12 10:45:09

Being in the biz all his life you're right he should be used to gays.

well that is what I was thinking he must be used to the gayness grin tbh I really try on block Brucie out he is awful but he is working on a show that is as camp as a row of tents grin I dont understand it

annaje Sun 18-Nov-12 10:44:45

I agree the music was crap - don't think the band transfer well to such a big place. You can't see the dances close up either - they had some dodgy camera work i thought!

Plus side - loving Danny and Vincent. He deserves a shot at winning (he was robbed the year he had Rachel). Don't like DVO - can't explain why.

ppeatfruit Sun 18-Nov-12 10:42:25

mrsjayHe doesn't like CRH though does he? Being in the biz all his life you're right he should be used to gays. [grin

Mrsjay Sun 18-Nov-12 10:37:54

he's a homophobe IMO hence the nasty comments to Richard HE MUST GO)

but he has Bruno and Craig on the judges panel they sometimes ogle men well artems pecs (oh how i miss artem) and are over the top with gayness he doesn't say anything to them I don't think he is a homphobe although the interview was odd, maybe the men in teenty tiny shorts was a step to far for bruce ?

ppeatfruit Sun 18-Nov-12 10:33:13

As an overview and after reading all you lot on here;-

The music was very variable some was crap (they totally effed up the introduction Boogey woogey Bugle boy; the dance was not long enough and the girl chorus\singers were very weak or was it a technical hitch?) It was in Wembley arena FGS they should be used to balancing the sound there!!

Bruce was a bit better timed (I reckon they'd injected some monkey glands in his bum or something) he's a homophobe IMO hence the nasty comments to Richard HE MUST GO)

Why was Tess's dress designed for letches (boobs exposed on a tray neckline grin) if she doesn't like being letched over esp. by Forsyth?

Of course DVO's dance was good she 's a pro IMO (James' choreography was esp. good) but what did she look like shock ? not Cleopatra that's for sure!!

Liked Danny DANNY TO WIN!!!

LIKED Pasha he's yum smile

slartybartfast Sun 18-Nov-12 10:09:50

very annoyign at the bieggnign with bruce going on Nice to see you.. i don normally catchthe beginning so dont know if it is liek this everyweek. i would not be smiling at him

slartybartfast Sun 18-Nov-12 10:09:07

ra said do i have a vpl? and showed his bottom. and bruce took offence for some reason, as he did to the male dancers lifting up ra, and was yes quite rude to ra.

Mrsjay Sun 18-Nov-12 09:33:55

and did the Richard Arnold interview go on for hours god it was so cringy I was blush for them why did he show his arse to Darcy what was that all about it all just went to soo wrong
