Strictly Come Dancing week nine: song and dance list revealed

The bright lights of Blackpool might be a distant memory, but our Strictly celebs are still hoping to impress the judges this Saturday logo

Last week’s Strictly was a corker of a live show, with Simon and Pixie bagging the highest scores so far and Frankie earning Len’s first 10 of the series. But there’s always a lull when we leave the bright lights of Brighton behind. The question this week: can the celebrities keep up the high standard set during last week’s show?


Leaderboard toppers Pixie and Simon will certainly be attempting to, dancing Charlestons and Sambas respectively in the hope of achieving that perfect score. Caroline will be performing an American Smooth to a Robbie Williams tune while Frankie is poised to perform an elegant Viennese Waltz to Tom Jones’s What’s New Pussycat?

Sunetra, who found herself in the bottom two last week, will be Waltzing her way around the dance floor to Paolo Nutini’s Last Request – and hoping that it’ll be far from her last spin beneath the glitterball…

Here’s the full list: 

Caroline and Pasha will be dancing the American Smooth to Mack the Knife by Robbie Williams.

Frankie and Kevin will perform the Viennese Waltz to Tom Jones’ What’s New Pussycat?

Jake and Janette will Samba to the Macarena by Los Del Rio.

Mark and Karen will Tango to OneRepublic’s Love Runs Out.

Pixie and Trent are going to Charleston to Nicole Kidman’s Sparkling Diamonds.

Simon and Kristina will Samba to Let’s Hear It For The Boy by Deniece Williams.

Steve and Ola are Jiving to Little Bitty Pretty One by Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers.

Sunetra and Brendan will be Waltzing to Paolo Nutini’s Last Request.


Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 7:00pm on BBC1
