Saturday night saw Strictly 2017 come to an end with what we think was quite possibly the Best. Final. Ever! It was a very closely fought battle which saw Joe and Katya crowned champions.
Lots of you who follow our blog will know that over the past 3 months, my 7 year old has ventured into the world of blogging, revealing her favourite moments of the shows each week! In her words, on Saturday she loved every dance, but has decided to come back for one last time *sobs* this year *sobs* to reveal her top 5 dances and moments of the series. Here are her Best Bits of Strictly 2017:
1) Joe and Katya’s Showdance
I really like fairytales and loved this showdance because it was just like Cinderella. It had bits of quickstep and charleston and jive, my 3 favourite dances. I also really liked Katya’s dress. It had magical powers and I think that helped them win Strictly. I’m asking Santa for a dress just like Katya’s for Christmas. I wonder if his elves can help him make it?
2) Debbie and Giovanni’s Showdance
This dance was also really magical. I have a jewellery box that has a ballerina in it. I wonder if she comes to life at night and dances with my teddy bears. When I grow up next year, I want to dance that dance with Giovanni and I want Giovanni to be my partner, because he’s the kindest pro ever.
3) Susan and Kevin’s Quickstep
There are people on Strictly who always make you feel happy and Susan was one of them. This dance made me smile and I think they deserved the glitterball for making people smile. I may even make them one.
4) Joe and Katya’s Argentine Tango
This is the dance with the lift that I tried at home and it was really difficult. They had legs like scissors and were really really fast. When I grow up, I want to be able to dance a dance like this. I think Katya’s the best choreographer on Strictly… ever!
5) Aston and Janette’s Cha Cha Cha
They were trolls and they danced on Strictly. This is one of the best dances on Strictly ever. I really liked it and I think if they make a Trolls: Musical again, they should put Aston and Janette in the main roles because they were totally trollific.
So there you have it, Bella’s best bits from Strictly 2017.
I also asked her little sister, Elodie (aged 3) for her 5 favourite moments of Strictly. She is a huge Aljaz/Eyelash fan and voted this way:
1) Gemma and Aljaz/Eyelash’s Charleston
In her words: It had Eyelash in it and he was a teddybear who danced!
2) Gemma and Aljaz/Eyelash’s American Smooth
In her words: It had Eyelash in it and she looked pretty like a lollipop
3) Simon and Karen’s Quickstep
I like Toy Story a lot and he was good as Buzz Lightyear
4) Debbie and Giovanni’s American Smooth
She was a cat and he was a cat. They went round and round and round. It looked fun.
5) Debbie and Giovanni’s Foxtrot
She looked like a princess in her dress and it rained glitter on Planet Strictly.
So there you have it, Bella and Elodie’s best bits. What were your best dances of the series? Tell us by commenting below or tweeting @scd_support. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
