Rose melts our Frozen hearts in Musicals Week on Strictly Come Dancing
The use of sign language in the dance was, once again, a lovely addition to the routine, rather than an afterthought as it might have appeared.
Dynamic routines, thrilling performances, and Motsi’s hair were the highlights of Musicals Week.
Craig would have been furious if he’d been upstaged, so it’s a good thing he was away.
I thought Cynthia Erivo gave the judges solid support, but his acid tongue was conspicuously absent.
The Cabaret premiere featured Oti as Sally Bowles and the new, metrosexual Giovanni as the Emcee, which was my dream casting.
I completely forgot about Covid after hearing Dave Arch’s enthusiastic shoulder-bounce as he physically urged the orchestra to use full jazz hands.
AJ and Kai were up first, waltzing to “Edelweiss” with her in a Rosemary’s Baby crop (the hair budget was needed elsewhere).
I already liked the song, but seeing the two of them looking into each other’s eyes (as appropriate) gave me a warm glow.
As the ‘9’s and ’10’s rose, AJ couldn’t stop crying.
They have to be in the championship round.
This is a non-negotiable.
Rhys and Nancy, at the risk of repeating myself, came out and repeated themselves in their Jive to “Footloose,” moving faster than actual light particles.
The judges told him to slow down, take a beat, and stop getting ahead of the music, at the risk of repeating themselves.
When Motsi said his performance, which was always moving like a shark who would die if he stopped, she expressed exactly what I was feeling.
It made her jittery.
I’m not sure how many more times the judges can throw this at him before he changes his mind.
I was dying to see them ballroom this week, despite the fact that that isn’t a verb.
Straight ‘8’s isn’t bad, but it feels like treading water at this point.
Rhys would obviously just skim across the top of the water like one of those insects if he did actually tread water.
Before his Couples’ Choice to “On My Own” from Les Mis this week, Tom had a good cry with his West End star sister, Carrie Hope Fletcher.
However, it appears that he should have saved some of those emotions for the ballroom, because when it came down to it, a solidly good routine was all that was required.
