It’s that time of the year again; time for Eurovision. Yes, time for countries across Europe and some other continents to join together for one night in the name of music!
We’ve always wondered what a Strictly Eurovision Special would look like. We’ve had dances that captured the spirit of Eurovision perfectly, like this one before:
For one night only, we hosted a Eurovision themed Strictly Support Group!
We began our chat by asking you:
Which Strictly performance/dance would best fit in at Eurovision and why?
You gave us some answers worthy of douze points, answers like these:
For our next question we asked this:
Strictly showcases some of the world’s best dancers. If you could see anyone who has appeared on Strictly perform on the Eurovision Song Contest who would it be and why?
*wonders if she can sing*
*removes all stools from his performance to avoid any injury*
We’ve heard Craig sing and have a feeling this could definitely score Douze Points!
For our next question we asked:
On the Eurovision Song Contest, the best dances are awarded douze points. If you could award one Strictly performance douze points what would it be?
We had several suggestions from you all. Here they are in playlist form:
For our next question we reminded you of this moment, when a former Strictly pairing appeared on the Eurovision Dance contest.
We asked you if you could see one Strictly couple represent the UK at a Eurovision Dance Contest, who would it be?
Here were some of your fab-u-lous answers:
It was pretty unanimous that Jay and Aliona should represent the UK in a Eurovision Dance Contest. If they danced that jive, they would definitely win.
For the final question of the evening we invited you to get creative as we asked you to design your dream Eurovision Strictly special. We asked you to tell us the dances and Eurovision songs you’d like to see feature. Here are some of your suggestions:
And that ended our Eurovision chat tonight. Can we say tonight that we felt you all deserved douze points from us and a sparkly Eurovision trophy. Thank you everyone who took part. If you didn’t get a chance to take part, don’t fear! You can still tweet @scd_support or comment below to let us know.
We look forward to hearing from you.
We’re back tomorrow night from 7.30pm to celebrate #strictlyday with a short chat and quiz & to reveal the winners of our #strictlyday giveaway. We hope to see you then.
Goodnight, Bonne nuit, Buenas Noches from us!
