This Strictly institution brings the West End stage all the way to the Strictly dance floor with costumes, props and plenty of extras. Think Dream Girls, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and The Lion King – with more sequins than ever.
What are the songs and dances for Strictly’s Musicals Week?
Although she scored the maximum points in the Paso-Doblethon, Alexandra got rather lukewarm reviews from the judges for her Rumba last week.
But with all the verve, vigour and energy Alexandra always brings to her performances, we have no doubt that the Charleston is going to be the dance for her and Gorka. Combine that with a Mary Poppins theme, and what’s not to love?
Is there anything Debbie McGee and Giovanni Pernice can’t do? Their Argentine Tango was outstanding – to the point where Craig Revel Horwood said he wished he could dance like her!
Surely – surely – things can’t get any better for Debbie? Well we’ll have to wait and see after she performs this American Smooth to the rather moving Memory. It’s now been three weeks since she scored that perfect 40 – the only one of the series so far. Is now her time to do it again?
After suffering some under marking (in our opinion!) last week, Gemma Atkinson and Aljaž Škorjanec are going to have to come back fighting with this Quickstep.
Being so into fitness, we reckon Gemma won’t have a problem when it comes to stamina in this fast-paced routine, but will she be able to find the magic formula that took her near the top of the leaderboard in Blackpool?
A few weeks ago we wondered if Davood Ghadami had a secret dancer lurking within him… and it turns out we were right!
He’s gone from strength to strength in recent weeks and his performances have just got better and better. However he’s going to face the ultimate test in Musicals Week when he performs the Argentine Tango.
A notoriously tricky and intricate dance, so far Alexandra and Debbie are the only celebrities to have performed it. They both scored an impressive 38 with their utterly breathtaking and remarkable routines.
The question is, will Davood be able to do the same?
