Tomorrow night sees the cast of Strictly 2017 take to the Blackpool Tower Ballroom Floor for one night only!
Over the many years of Strictly we have seen some truly wonderful and memorable performances, performances which have helped decide the eventual winner of their series and performances which have wowed and surprised us.
Yesterday, we asked you to vote for your favourite Blackpool Dance ever. Thank you to everyone who has voted. Your votes have been checked, counted and verified by of all people… Bill Payer.
In 4th Place – Simon and Kristina’s Argentine Tango
In Joint 3rd Place – Danny and Oti’s Charleston and Susanna and Kevin’s Paso Doble
In 2nd Place – Matt and Aliona’s Samba
In 1st Place – Jay and Aliona’s Salsa
Once again, Jay and Aliona prove unbeatable in our polls!
We cannot wait to see the remaining 8 couples dance tomorrow. Who are you most looking forward to see on the floor tomorrow night? Do you think they will be able to beat these fab-u-lous dances? Comment down below to let us know.
It’s been a tense and surprising night in the world of politics but we’re pretty sure if politicians were to see the results of the Strictly Support Group General Election, they would be over the moon!
Yes, overnight our team of experts have been counting your votes and we can now reveal the winning couple and dance!
We have to say it has been a landslide victory for Jay and Aliona as they are declared the overall winners with a landslide victory and 50% share of the vote in both polls.
We also have some great and very interesting results with Danny and Oti being pipped to the post in second place in both polls. Here are the results in picture form:
We’re a little gutted that this dance did not feature *does Gangnam Style in Ed’s honour* but here are the results of our winning dance
Thank you for all your votes. We’ll leave you with this image as a post election night treat:
We’ll be here tomorrow night from 8pm for an Election Themed Strictly Support Group. We hope to see you then!
We have reached the final category in our Ultimate Strictly Challenge. Like all results shows, we hate saying goodbye, but tonight it’s time for us to reveal your top 4 show dances which make their way into the Ultimate Strictly Challenge final (which is next week by the way) and for us to reveal our final category *grabs a tissue as she gets a tad emosh*
Thank you for all your votes this week. They have been counted, checked and verified by an independent adjudicator – she’s fluffy and a feline fan of Strictly, it’s Cinnamon the Cat! Said adjudicator is purring contently now she has heard the result:
We can now reveal that the 4 show dances making their way into the final are Danny and Oti’s, Kellie and Kevin’s, Ore and Joanne’s and Louis and Flavia! Well done to these four couples.
Now, it’s time for us to move onto our final category. You have sent us your suggestions, and we’ve combined them with some of the dances we felt were perfect on Strictly (*nudges Craig Revel Horwood to find out why he didn’t give them a 10*) All you need to do is click on the link below to watch the videos (there are quite a number of them) and once you’ve watched them vote in the poll below for your top 10!
Voting will remain open until next Sunday at 6pm, when we’ll freeze the vote before revealing the results at 8pm. We’ll then put the top 10 as well as the winners from the past 7 weeks to the public vote, to reveal the best Strictly dance ever!
Last Saturday we crowned the champion of Strictly 2016 and immediately afterwards asked you to help us decide who should win 2 important awards!
Over the past week you have voted in your hundreds and thousands (sparkly ones like you find on cupcakes nonetheless) and we can now reveal the winner of Best Dance on Strictly 2016 and Best Professional on Strictly 2016!
The winner of Best Dance on Strictly 2016 is *drumrolls and builds suspense by doing an Irish Jig and falling over in the process*
Thank you once again for all your votes, we couldn’t do this without you!
We are now opening our next category. That is for GIF of the series for 2016! Unless you’ve been living on another planet, you may have noticed every week this year we showed you a GIF of the week. We’ve decided to let the GIFs battle it out to be crowned overall champions. You can see this year’s GIFs by clicking on this tweet below:
Once you’ve watched all the GIFs we’d like you to vote for your favourite, using this snazzy and very clever poll. We’ll then reveal the winners on Wednesday 28th December (during our 3rd Birthday party!)
We always knew the first elimination on Strictly 2016 would be hard, especially when we love all of this year’s cast.
After a brilliant week 2, tonight we said farewell to Team J Boom, aka Melvin and Janette. It was always going to be hard to say goodbye to someone (can’t they all stay?). Given the circumstances, we know health does what come first and we hope that Anastacia is OK as that injury sounded painful.
Janette and Melvin have made us smile with their infectious smiles & fun routines over the past few weeks. We’re sure they’ll remain friends for life.
Not only did they dance, but they brought us the Team J Boom dab:
And they brought us two awesome routines which had energy, lots of content and great dancing! Their strictly journey may have been short but sweet and we’d have loved to have seen them stay on in the show for a few more weeks, but we’ll always remember them for these two awesome dances.
We’d like this post to become a tribute to them. Comment below with your messages of support for them before Thursday. We’d also like you to help us make a little video. Send us your Team J Boom Dabs before Thursday & we’ll make a video to send to Janette and Melvin!
