Just starting a new thread before tonight's elimination, as I'm sure we'll all have something to say about that.

I don't see as much of the personalities though because I rarely watch ITT and the DCs tend to talk over the videos in between the dances on Saturdays, so I am generally going on looks / overall impression of dancing (I'm no expert).

Louis and Flavia's fusion dance misic is" U2 With or Without You", but can't get it on you tube as available only to US viewers. Anyone got a link for UK ?

digerd Thu 06-Dec-12 18:31:51

"music" even

AndiMac Thu 06-Dec-12 18:57:58

Here's With or Without You with just the song and the lyrics, not the actual video. And it doesn't work on mobile devices, having tried that myself earlier.

I will be muting the TV during Louis and Flavia's dance. With or Without You is one of my favourite songs. Ever.

Also don't want any distractions from Louis dancing a rumba

digerd Thu 06-Dec-12 19:09:32

Thank you very much for doing that. It's a lovely song.

WhoKnowsWhereTheMistletoes Thu 06-Dec-12 19:34:30

I might mute it because I think it's a dreadful song, cannot imagine that it will be good to dance to.

RedTinsel Thu 06-Dec-12 21:01:42

Surely that song is too slow for a tango, not that I know much about it.

frankinsensible Thu 06-Dec-12 21:17:07

I supposed they might be doing a latin style cover version? I agree seems a funny choice, not likely to get the crowd going but Flavia is pretty canny about these things usually.

Andimac How annoying for you! Couldn't you change the panto tickets?

Darcey was on chris evans just now and she (sort of) agrees with me about Danni !!!! She reckons the finalists will be Lisa, Louis and Danni poss. DVO who SHE didn't seem to reckon either!!!!! We are vindicated other DVO dislikers grin

AndiMac Fri 07-Dec-12 11:52:10

Ppeatfruit, that's a task for this weekend, to see if I can change them, or at least return them.

I'm not sure if DVO will really fall off the top 3. I think people might not vote for her when she's at the top, as they figure she's safe. But if it's a matter of her staying in or not, more fans of hers might come out and vote. We shall see.

digerd Fri 07-Dec-12 14:11:56

DVO is doing the Jive/Quickstep, to Reet Petite - a fast tempo and exhausting Fusion.

frankinsensible Fri 07-Dec-12 17:21:03

I LOVE Reet Petite! And that's a killer combo, jive/quickstep. I bet Len will blow his top - he went mad for their Little Richard jive. I'm not a fan of DVO on principle - think she is just too pro for the competition (although after last week that theory is a bit dented) but I'm really looking forward to seeing that fusion.

digerd Fri 07-Dec-12 17:52:38

Frankin Exactly my thoughts, will probably bring the house down if their energy levels don't drop and they do an amazing job. And they have put in the most hours of training during the whole series according to Russell's Stats.

Good luck to them both, I say. Jive isn't the easiest for long legs at that speed. Perhaps it will be slowed down for them. What a wow the original song was. Don't think the SCD orchestra and singers will match it, do you?

frankinsensible Fri 07-Dec-12 18:18:49

Oh Gawd digerd - I forgot it would be the house band! That's taken the edge of my anticipation. Bless 'em, they do a good job but the more adventurous the pro's get with music choices the more it's taxing them. DS was fuming about the cover of Skyfall last week (but I was laughing 'cos I'm sick to death of being force-fed Adele grin)

Oh well, it's going to be a cracking dance anyway. Unless it all goes a bit wrong again...

digerd Fri 07-Dec-12 21:28:05

Missed most of ITT tonight, and just caught the last 5 mins with DVO and James in training - he looked absolutely knackered and out of breath. They demonstrated a bit of it, to a DVD music, but don't think they put much into it - don't blame them, and didn't wow me at all.

We'll see tomorrow

TheOneWithTheHair Fri 07-Dec-12 21:41:38

I'm looking forward to this one but I'm out all weekend. sad

I can't be the thread starter because all my threads die but could someone link to the new thread so I can find you all when I've caught up on Monday?

Thank you in advance. grin

frankinsensible Fri 07-Dec-12 21:55:30

A lot of the pros seem a bit crocked don't they? Maybe you're right - the fusion is a bit too exhausting for them.

ppeatfruit Fri 07-Dec-12 22:08:43

I love Reet Petite too grin They all better do it justice that's all i can say hmm

digerd Sat 08-Dec-12 10:12:29

At least Louis and Flavia's is a slow fusion dance. But needs loads of expression - hope Louis gives it to us. Sensual Rumba with sensual Argentine tango - feast for us ladies eyes if done well. Wonder what he is weraring?

digerd Sat 08-Dec-12 10:13:01

"wearing" even !!

Brendan's on Saturday Kitchen BBC1 smile
