Semi-final updates (Results Spoiler Free)

Double the dances, double the fun!  Alexandra & Gorka smashed it with their perfect 40 Salsa, and dropping only one point on their Viennese Waltz put them squarely at the top of the leaderboard.  It's going to be fascinating to see who ends up in the bottom two tomorrow night, but my votes went to Alexandra and Gemma this week, so fingers crossed neither of them end up there.  As usual the site has been updated with all the dances, songs, scores and stats and the following pages have been updated:

Semi final dances and songs

The semi-finals are here, and each couple will have to perform two dances each.  All the dances and songs have been added to the Week 12 results page, and I'll be updating the individual celebrities pages too.  As usual, some of the song choices have been used before, so as well as updating the full list of Songs, here's an extract to see which songs have been used before:

Week 11 updates (Results Spoiler Free)

Week 11 was Musicals week.  I've had a splitting headache all day and I'm in a grump, but I still don't like theme weeks so I'll leave it at that.  As usual the site has been updated with all the dances, songs, scores and stats and the following pages have been updated:

Week 11 songs and dances

EDITED: Mollie and AJ have tweeted that they are dancing to "Hopelessly Devoted To You" and not "I Dreamed A Dream" as reported on the BBC website.

Oh joy, another theme week.  This week the theme will be musicals, and the songs and dances have been revealed.  I've updated the Week 11 page with the details, as well as the main Songs page, but so you can see which FIVE songs out of the SIX have been used before (including one used just two years ago), there's an extract with the song choices for this Saturday below.  With so many songs being reused, isn't it time to retire this theme and if we must have a theme, try something new?

Week 10 updates (Results Spoiler free)

Back to Elstree, and week 10 means a group dance which this year was the PASODOBLATHON.  Despite the claim that it could mean turning the leaderboard upside down, based on the scores of their individual dances, it really wasn't going to make much difference, but that won't stop me enjoying seeing all seven couples trying to paso around each other all at once!  Loved Alexandra & Gorka blocking Debbie & Giovanni at the beginning ... it was just like Strictly Ballroom!  As usual the site has been updated with all the dances, songs, scores and stats and the following pages have been updated:

Don’t be scared.”

New page for Judges average scores

A few years ago, I decided to remove a lot of statistics on the site, as the weekly updates were taking so long each Saturday night, that it was starting to take away my enjoyment of Strictly itself.  Every now and again, someone will ask me about some stats that have disappeared from the site.  This week, I had a request from Rochelle for the average scores awarded by each judge per series.  As this is something that I can do as a one-off update at the end of each series, I've decided to add these statistics back in.  You can see the average scores awarded by each judge for each series, and at the bottom of the table, the overall average score awarded by each judge over all previous fourteen series.  I will update the table to include the series fifteen average scores at the end of the series.  You can find the page under the Statistics menu called Judges Statistics

Week 7 updates (Results spoiler free)

Some very unexpected results tonight, with the leaderboard all over the place but seeing Debbie rise to the top with a perfect 40 for her tango, with Alexandra close on her heels with a 39 for her cha cha cha, and unbelievably, Aston second from bottom with only 25 for his Viennese Waltz.  Although, probably the highlight of the night was Ruth & Anton's paso for all the wrong reasons, but without doubt will remain in Strictly memory for a long, long time!  It could be anyone's guess as to who will end up in the bottom two, so I hope you've all voted for your favourites.

Week 5 updates (Results spoiler free)

With no Bruno this week, the leaderboard ended up with an awful lot of joint scores, so I think we'll be in for a pretty interesting results show this week, where the public vote will possibly have more impact than usual.  Surprised to see Shirley giving another 10 out this week, seeing Joe added to the celebrities scoring 10s, and Katya premiering on the professional 10s pages too!

Week 4 updates (Results spoiler free)

I really enjoyed tonight. Great to see improvement from some celebrities, especially Ruth, Gemma and Susan, and our first 10s of the series for Alexandra & Gorka, and a for a jive no less, who scored an impressive 39 for their dance.  Now, I wonder who else scored 39 for a jive in week 4 ... none other that Ore Oduba, series 14 champion!  Could we be seeing history repeat itself?  Too early to tell, but you know how I love my Strictly Stats!
