What The Judges Said

Week 2 - Salsa

Alesha :Nice to see you really going for it, it was full of energy, full of pizzazz, you had great hip action, and you've proved tonight, you are equally as good in your latin as you are in the ballroom so well done.
Bruno:Scott. So strong, so tight, so footloose. Always in timing, always your eye on the prey cause you know you're gonna get it. And after this you're gonna get plenty ... plenty of praise from the judges.
Craig:The thought of getting it from Bruno, darling, does put me off slightly. As Bruno might say darling, flame grilled and red hot. I thought it was seriously hot. That was really, really fantastic.

 

Week 1 - Waltz

Len:Well you know, in the Waltz, you look at hold - it was good. You look at posture - it was good. You look at movement - it was good. Your footwork was a little bit hit and miss here and there, and I'm not sure, it was a tad on the raunchy side, which I've never said about a waltz before, so calm yourself down please, because if that's a waltz, I'm dreading the rumba. Very well danced.
Alesha:Wow. Len is right, traditionally, the waltz is romantic, but I actually liked the sexed up version. I thought it was hot, it was spicy, it was good. You're quite the charmer, you moved around the floor effortlessly. I think you've set a very high standard for yourself, and really looking forward to seeing you next week. Well done
Bruno:Scott. You've taken to this stage with the assurance of a true leading man. Srong, dramatic, romantic, a frisson of sexuality running all through it. A lot of ladies at home are going for a cup of tea right now. I have to go with Len, god knows what you're gonna do with the rumba. Oh yes, bring it on.
Craig:(Bruce: Did you like a raunchy waltz) ... yes, I did as a matter of fact. A few small points, cupped hands looked like puppets, horrible. Arms that made them slightly laboured. You need to drive off the heel a little bit more, but I thought it was dangerously romantic actually.
