Strictly 2016 – Our Musicals Week Predictions *jazz hands* 

Yes, this Saturday will be the week the remaining 5 couples take to the floor for Musicals Week. From past experience we know to expect several things from this Saturday’s show:

There will be dancing which will surpass the standards of Blackpool

There will be singing and dancing at the same time (the singing is not just from the band, but from celebrities and professionals)

There will be jazz hands a plenty (and not just from Judge Rinder but from all 5 couples!)

Yesterday we learnt the dances and songs the couples will be using to make their West End Stage Musicals Week Debut performance. Here are our thoughts on their prospective performances!

Claudia and AJ will be performing a Salsa to “I just can’t wait to be king” from the Lion King!

We’re pretty sure this performance will be roar-some! It’s good to see that she’ll be performing a dance to a slower track so we’re hoping that this will earn her some tens, or we may just have to roar at Craig Revel Horwood! We love Claudia’s lift work and think that she is a brilliant little dancer who puts lots of power and fire into her dances! We cannot wait to see this routine. We think it’ll be the Cat’s pyjamas.

Danny and Oti will be performing a Tango to “One Night Only – Beyonce version” from Dreamgirls

This song is super fast. We saw Danny perform the fastest Argentine Tango this side of the galaxy a few weeks ago, and know that he is a brilliant dancer. He is good enough to be a professional dancer and we love seeing Oti’s challenging but captivating choreography. Could it earn him his third perfect score of the series? We think it will be dreamy and may well do that!

Judge Rinder and Oksana will be performing a Samba to “Oh What a Night!” From Jersey Boys!

If Judge Rinder performs this dance it is the law that he has to wear a red jacket and sing while he dances. This guy was born to perform on Musicals Week and we cannot wait to see what he has up his sleeves for his samba. He can entertain and his salsa blew the roof off the tower ballroom. We predict this could earn him his best score of the series!

Louise and Kevin will be performing a Quickstep to Deadwood Stage from Calamity Jane

Kevin always knows how to choreograph an exciting and a crowd-pleasing routine. We’re looking forward to lots of wild west accents and hope there’s a horse (or two) somewhere in the performance. Louise’s ability as a dancer is exceptional. She has made brilliant progress and her ballroom is always beautiful. We cannot wait to see her performance this weekend.

Ore and Joanne will be performing a Foxtrot to “Pure Imagination” from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Ore will be Willy Wonka. Therefore he has to give all the judges a bar of chocolate *hopes that puts Mr Revel Horwood in a better mood* Their American Smooth Foxtrot got the attention of Gene Kelly’s wife. Ore is a born performer so we’re sure this routine (with Joanne’s brilliant choreography) will be a box office hit! Could it earn him a perfect score? We have a feeling it may well do!

So those are our predictions for this weekend. Whose performance are you most looking forward to see? Tell us by tweeting @scd_support or commenting below. We look forward to hearing from you.
