The Countdown To Strictly Challenge – Day 9

It’s Day 9 of our Countdown to Strictly Challenge and as I write this post we’re at the airport waiting for our flight home from our wonderful 2 week holiday in Italy.

Due to some blogging magic, probably by the time you read this we’ll be back in the UK *sprinkles some glitter dust*

Earlier today, we shared Our Favourite Tango of 2016 from Italy’s very own Giovanni Pernice along with his partner Laura Whitmore.

This Halloween dance saw this couple leap to the top of the leaderboard. It was full of drama, agression and everything we love about the Tango.

Giovanni’s choreography is always original but in this dance he excelled himself and created one of our favourite Tangos of Strictly history ever! As a dance they performed it at the speed of sound (faster than concorde) and it was one of the fastest tangos we’d ever seen.

Laura’s performance (don’t forget she was performing on a sprained ankle) was full of drama and wowed not just us but the judges at home.

It was one of those perfect Strictly moments which we absolutely loved! In case you missed it earlier, here it is again:

We’d love to hear which Tango was your favourite on last year’s Strictly! Tell us by tweeting @scd_support or commenting below. We look forward to leading your comments once we’ve touched down!
