Strictly Saturdays | Week Thirteen/The Final

THE FINAL. Everyone this is not a drill and I did just say that, it is the final dance of the series. I bloody love this show and I love the final so much. I mean, who doesn’t love the best dancers doing the best dances of the series and then throwing in a no rules show dance to top everything off. I mean it’s always hard to say goodbye to the show each year, but it is always such a great nice. Lots of pros, lots of dances, lots of old celebrities coming back, and a sneaky special music guest (even if she isn’t my favourite, she be a big star!) What a night we have in store.

Strictly Come Dancing: The Finale

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, you could have been anywhere in the world tonight, but you’re here with us, watching the Strictly Come Dancing 2017 finale. Can you believe it’s the final already?! Joe and Katya, Gemma and Aljaz, Debbie and Giovanni, and Alexandra and Gorka have danced their little socks off, but only one can take home the coveted glitterball. Who will it be?

I wasn’t able to watch Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday last week, so I missed voting in the semi-finals and missed writing a review post. I had a good excuse, I was sat in a theatre in London watching (and enjoying) Les Misérables. I’ve watched it since and thorouggly enjoyed all of the dances, and even though we know it’s all physics and balancing forces, I think Emma is still impressively shocked by Joe and Kate’s counter balance lift. The semi-final also saw the end of Mollie and AJ’s run. I can’t say I’m disappointed as I wanted her or Debbie (or both to go). She just wasn’t as good as everyone else, and her and AJ were starting to simultaneously annoy me and creep me out.

The final always pulls out the stops and really shows who can hold it under pressure. Everyone will dance 3 times: they’ll re-dance their favourite number, try and improve a judges choice, and attempt to wow us with a no-rules, no-holds barred showdance. I love the freestyle showdance and can’t wait to see what they have cooked up for us.

So sit back, relax and enjoy the show, watch the opening pro number here, and remember that from here, there be spoilers! Continue reading “Strictly Come Dancing: The Finale”
