Monday night saw two dances per couple - the "redemption dance" where the judges choose a dance they feel the couples had most room to improve, and the ever popular freestyle - you never know what you're going to get!
Here are the scores from the first night of Finals Week:
- Kyle and Lacey - 56 - Kyle and Lacey performed a foxtrot and received 27. Their freestyle was a mix-up of hip-hop and the Boogaloo depending on who you listened too and was really very good. Particularly their symmetry when they weren't dancing anywhere near each other! They scored 29.
- Bristol and Mark - 52 - They ceremoniously ditched the monkey suit at the start of their revised Jive. They scored 27 which I felt was a little generous but they were pretty good. For the freestyle, Mark chose a number from Chicago, the musical. This was probably a mistake as it's a famous number and Bristol wasn't comfortable with it. They scored 25 which seemed a little high compared to Kyle and Lacey.
- Jennifer and Derek - 60 - What can you say? The re-did their Paso and it was lovely. Their freestyle was very impressive but I felt it featured Derek a bit too much. It very much deserved 30 though.
Overall I think the judging was pretty poor tonight. Jennifer and Derek were better than the judges' scores suggest and Bristol worse. However the viewer votes from tonight and the judges' scores from all four dances will be combined 50:50 to determine the winning couple!
Who do you think will win?
