I have made it to the quarterfinals.

I can't believe it's musicals week.

0:00:210:00:31

I feel so, so lucky to be here.

I'm

having the time of my life.

I can't

0:00:310:00:41

slow down now. I've got to keep

working hard.

It's not time to go

0:00:410:00:51

home.

It's not time to go home.

It's

not time to go home.

It's a Musicals Special.

0:04:550:04:56

This is Strictly Come Dancing.

Hello and welcome to

Strictly Come Dancing -

0:05:150:05:17

our Musicals Special.

0:05:170:05:19

A massive thank you to our

professional dancers

0:05:190:05:21

and remaining couples

for that amazing Oliver

0:05:210:05:23

themed routine.

0:05:230:05:29

Wasn't it great?

0:05:290:05:31

It left us all wanting more

and the good news is,

0:05:310:05:33

there's plenty more to come.

0:05:330:05:35

Last week, after a dramatic

night of double

0:05:350:05:36

dancing it was Joe who

topped the leaderboard.

0:05:360:05:38

And there was more drama

when Alexandra and

0:05:380:05:40

Gorka faced Susan and Kevin

in the Dance Off and

0:05:400:05:43

Susan left the show.

0:05:430:05:46

Our remaining six celebrities

will be giving it their

0:05:460:05:49

all in a bid to reach

next week's Semi Final.

0:05:490:05:52

And as it's our Musicals

Special we're expecting

0:05:520:05:54

them to make a real song

and dance about it.

0:05:540:05:56

As always, they'll need

to impress this chorus line.

0:05:560:05:58

Please welcome the judges.

0:05:580:06:02

Darcey Bussell.

0:06:020:06:04

Bruno Tonioli.

APPLAUS

0:06:160:06:22

APPLAUSE

0:06:220:06:28

The judges, everyone.

0:06:280:06:29

Musical.

0:06:290:06:30

Our six couples are

backstage waiting in the

0:06:300:06:32

wings, so let's raise

the curtain and welcome...

0:06:320:06:34

BOTH: Our Strictly Stars.

0:06:340:06:41

EastEnders star, Davood Ghadami

and his partner Nadiya Bychkova.

0:06:410:06:44

Pop star Mollie King,

and her partner AJ Pritchard.

0:06:440:06:46

Actress and Radio Presenter,

Gemma Atkinson

0:06:460:06:47

and her partner Aljaz Skorjanec.

0:06:470:06:52

Entertainer and Radio Broadcaster,

Debbie McGee and her

0:06:520:06:54

partner Giovanni Pernice.

0:06:540:06:59

From Holby City, Joe McFadden

and his partner Katya Jones.

0:06:590:07:03

Singer and Theatre

Star Alexandra Burke

0:07:030:07:04

and her partner Gorka Marquez.

0:07:040:07:10

There they are - our six stars.

0:07:210:07:26

A couple of cats,

Mary Poppins and even

0:07:260:07:28

the Phantom of the Opera.

0:07:280:07:30

All hoping for rave reviews tonight.

0:07:300:07:33

You will be able to vote

for your favourites later

0:07:330:07:36

on.

0:07:360:07:37

Your votes will be added

to the judges' scores

0:07:370:07:39

to decide which two couples

will face the Dance

0:07:390:07:41

Off in Sunday night's Result Show.

0:07:410:07:44

It's then down to the Judges

alone to decide who

0:07:440:07:46

stays in the competition

and with only two weeks

0:07:460:07:48

until the Final nobody wants

to put a foot wrong.

0:07:480:07:53

And treading the boards

first tonight is Gemma

0:07:530:07:55

and her partner Aljaz.

0:07:550:08:01

Tonight they're dancing

a Quickstep to 'Hello

0:08:010:08:05

Dolly' and they're hoping

it will lead to Gemma

0:08:050:08:07

saying "Hello Semi Final!"

0:08:070:08:11

I absolutely loved our samba on

Saturday.

I did. We didn't get the

0:08:190:08:25

comments and scores we wanted.

Your

hands looked like soup ladles.

But

0:08:250:08:29

we had fun.

Wiki 11...

Quarterfinal.

You ready? This week, we are doing a

0:08:290:08:39

quick step to hello Dolly from hello

Dolly.

At times, Aljaz says, it's

0:08:390:08:49

easy, you just do this, and I'm

thinking... I don't want to be

0:08:490:08:57

falling flat on my face. At the

minute, there was a possibility I

0:08:570:09:01

could.

It is like a swan swimming in

a pond. The feet are going 1 million

0:09:010:09:06

miles an hour but the top is still.

We're going to try and channel our

0:09:060:09:11

innocent ones.

I'm not there get,

I'm more of a duck, but I will get

0:09:110:09:18

there, I think. -- I'm not there

yet. He is the boss, he knows what

0:09:180:09:25

he's on about. Dieting tips --

starting to make a little bit more

0:09:250:09:33

sense now. I need to channel it

through and out of my body.

0:09:330:09:39

Hopefully, I can turn into a swan

when I need to on the dance floor.

0:09:390:09:47

Dancing the Quickstep,

from the musical Hello Dolly

0:09:470:09:49

Gemma Atkinson and Aljaz Skorjanec.

0:09:490:09:51

MUSIC: "Hello, Dolly!"

0:09:580:10:04

APPLAUSE

0:11:370:11:47

Well, hello, Gemma.

0:11:480:11:51

What a start to the show!

0:11:510:11:58

What a reception from the audience.

Her little face!

0:11:580:12:04

Before we hear from

the critics let's

0:12:040:12:06

welcome back our brilliant

live singers Hayley,

0:12:060:12:07

Patrick, Andrea, Tommy

and of course our very

0:12:070:12:09

own musical maestro

Dave Arch and his

0:12:090:12:11

wonderful orchestra.

0:12:110:12:21

Thank you, boys and girls.

0:12:210:12:22

Did Gemma pull out all

the stops for tonight's

0:12:220:12:24

Quarter Final, Shirley?

0:12:240:12:28

I think you did very well. It is

such an iconic piece of music, and

0:12:280:12:34

just Hello, Dolly. You came down the

stairs and started. I just felt it

0:12:340:12:38

could have had a little bit of 20%

more in the acting skills, but you

0:12:380:12:47

had your swanlike posture, and

immaculate frame. You did some

0:12:470:12:55

immaculate movement, beautiful

footwork, I just felt it needed 20%

0:12:550:12:58

more.

APPLAUSE

0:12:580:13:03

She is an actress, Bruno - did she

shine in the spotlight?

She got my

0:13:030:13:07

attention. I love the Broadway diva

entrance. Back up, boys, here comes

0:13:070:13:12

Gemma! What I think happened, on

those kind of showbiz, razzmatazz

0:13:120:13:22

sequences, you held your own. She is

right, once you went on hold and did

0:13:220:13:30

the quickstep proper, the character

lost impact a little bit. It came

0:13:300:13:34

back again on the grand Broadway

ending, but at this stage, you have

0:13:340:13:38

to fire on all cylinders all the way

through. I thought it was a very

0:13:380:13:43

good turn.

Lovely turn! Craig?

It

needed to be lighter. It looked

0:13:430:13:50

laboured and heavy to me. The

scatter chassiss... I loved all the

0:13:500:14:05

quotation at the beginning, to the

music, that was wonderful. And I

0:14:050:14:09

loved the theatricality.

APPLAUSE

0:14:090:14:10

. Darcey?

It was certainly a hot,

cheeky quickstep. You brought

0:14:100:14:18

everything to the character, and the

personality stayed with you, I

0:14:180:14:22

believe. I am with Craig on this -

to create a better likeness, it came

0:14:220:14:28

from your posture. If it could be

more taut and tighter in the lines,

0:14:280:14:33

you would get that effect. Then it

would show off all that wonderful

0:14:330:14:39

choreography you were producing.

And

it was wonderful. Thank you for

0:14:390:14:48

kicking off the show, Gemma and

Aljaz.

0:14:480:14:55

That was absolutely brilliant. Just

so you know, the last time you open

0:15:030:15:07

the show was shown number one.

Yes!

That was a while ago!

And you were

0:15:070:15:15

like, I really don't like being in

Holt. And now you do. You've enjoyed

0:15:150:15:18

that, didn't you?

The film is just

brilliant.

0:15:180:15:27

The scores are in.

0:15:270:15:28

The judges have their scores.

0:15:280:15:29

Craig Revel Horwood...

0:15:290:15:38

Darcey Bussell... Shirley Ballas...

And Bruno Tonioli...

It is more than

0:15:380:15:51

last week. Just so you know, what is

sweet, the professional is going

0:15:510:15:57

like this, do it.

You're trying to

make him better. Thank you for

0:15:570:16:00

making me feel bad.

0:16:000:16:04

If you thought Gemma

and Aljaz's quickstep

0:16:040:16:05

was a lovely start to the show,

then you will need to make

0:16:050:16:08

sure they get your vote.

0:16:080:16:10

0:17:240:17:29

0:17:370:17:40

Tess.

0:17:400:17:41

Next tonight, dancing

for a place in our semifinal,

0:17:410:17:44

is Mollie and her partner, AJ.

0:17:440:17:48

CHEERING

0:17:480:17:50

Mollie's improvement over the last

few weeks has really

0:17:500:17:52

impressed the judges.

0:17:520:17:53

Tonight, she's hoping to keep that

up as she takes on one

0:17:530:17:56

of Strictly's toughest

challenges, the rumba.

0:17:560:18:00

Come on.

0:18:000:18:01

Saturday night, my gosh. It was my

favourite Saturday yet. I just

0:18:060:18:12

thought, this could be your last

time, so just enjoy it and that is

0:18:120:18:15

exactly what I did.

That is the way

to get to the final.

Thank you.

0:18:150:18:22

Mollie and AJ. The white people have

taken time out to Broad for us is

0:18:220:18:26

the most amazing feeling. This week,

we are dancing the rumba. We are

0:18:260:18:33

doing it to a song from Grease. To

help me get to grips with it, I

0:18:330:18:38

think counting out loud, AJ said I

should not be stepping on one, but

0:18:380:18:45

two, three, four. It is

mind-boggling. I hope I will get to

0:18:450:18:49

grips with it that way. Hello.

Hello. I wanted to get him something

0:18:490:18:53

to say thanks for this journey

together.

It is such an achievement

0:18:530:18:59

we have got this far. Mollie has

given me the most amazing present, a

0:18:590:19:03

gift of pure memories. That was the

first week, going to training. Each

0:19:030:19:08

photo says something completely

different, from one week to the

0:19:080:19:12

next. That seems like ages ago. It

is the best present she could have

0:19:120:19:17

got me. It is amazing how much we

have done.

I feel emotional. We have

0:19:170:19:22

worked so hard this week, I hope we

can continue to fill up the pages

0:19:220:19:27

with more memories.

This will be at

our rumba photograph. Another

0:19:270:19:31

fantastic you.

0:19:310:19:35

Dancing the rumba,

from the musical Grease.

0:19:350:19:37

Mollie King and AJ Pritchard!

0:19:370:19:39

MUSIC: "Hopelessly Devoted To You".

0:19:480:19:53

APPLAUSE

CHEERING

0:21:260:21:36

Well done.

Amazing.

Did you watch the kiss? I

0:21:360:21:46

was so close. You put everything

into that, including yourself. You

0:21:460:21:54

could actually be sandy. Brilliant.

The rumba, not the easiest dance,

0:21:540:21:59

especially in front of your dad, AJ,

I knows he is in the audience. That

0:21:590:22:06

chemistry lived believable to me.

What do you think? Or, yes. I could

0:22:060:22:12

feel my -- the fireworks myself. I

was not expecting your ability to

0:22:120:22:18

translate all this wonderful emotion

into such a beautiful motion.

0:22:180:22:24

Tonight, really, your quality of

movement was better than ever,

0:22:240:22:28

especially the way, it is so hard to

get a move moving through your bag

0:22:280:22:32

into your arms. I have never seen

you doing that before. I really

0:22:320:22:37

never have. You did so well.

You

have improved so much.

0:22:370:22:40

CHEERING

You can see the improvement.

Can

0:22:400:22:45

you? First of all there was a

full-blown lift in it and you had

0:22:450:22:50

already started the rumba on the

platform.

What a lift, it was

0:22:500:22:56

fabulous.

I would accept thing you

-- I would accept you jumping into

0:22:560:22:59

his arms, but you try to turn it

into something spectacular. It was

0:22:590:23:04

spectacular. I do not agree with

Bruno. I thought you were dancing by

0:23:040:23:09

numbers. You need more extension in

the body. You had some hip action

0:23:090:23:13

which was good and lovely straight

legs.

I liked it. Stop throwing

0:23:130:23:18

things, Bruno.

There was lot of it -- there was a

0:23:180:23:23

lot of being in the audience. I do

not think the agreed.

Darcey. This

0:23:230:23:28

is one of my favourite musicals and

how you played the image of the pure

0:23:280:23:32

sandy, it was divine. Your timing

was really nice as well, sweet and

0:23:320:23:39

romantic for a rumba. It is unusual.

I would have liked it more sensual.

0:23:390:23:45

If that could have been created

through stronger resistance through

0:23:450:23:49

the feet, for me, I would have

preferred that. It would have

0:23:490:23:53

followed stronger through the body.

I thought it was a little bit late

0:23:530:23:59

and girly.

Instead of womanly.

They

are so sweet. I wanted a little bit

0:23:590:24:06

more to it. Anyway, a really good

effort.

Just not my favourite.

0:24:060:24:11

Shirley.

Rumba lady.

I thought you

embrace the characters, I absolutely

0:24:110:24:21

believed your love story. I want to

start with that. I do agree with

0:24:210:24:26

Craig, you did throw in the lift. It

was beautifully executed but you had

0:24:260:24:31

started to rumba already. When you

started at the beginning, there was

0:24:310:24:37

no AJ there. You had to start that

on your own. To Michael, three,

0:24:370:24:43

four. Fantastic. You did a swivel on

two, three, you did a swivel on

0:24:430:24:50

four, you held your one, and then

Hugh Dan stand you did not step on

0:24:500:24:54

one. Your timing was impeccable.

Timing. The rumba Queen. Very

0:24:540:25:01

difficult to do. I felt like you

were totally on your feet. I think

0:25:010:25:06

the portrayal of this dance was a

bit girly. The music was not going

0:25:060:25:10

to be are they, I thought you got it

just right.

Thank you. We loved it.

0:25:100:25:16

You're making more memories for that

lovely book. I beautiful job. Off

0:25:160:25:22

you go. Mollie and AJ.

You did

amazing. I am so proud of you.

Well

0:25:220:25:35

done, you have been calling it the

dance of them. I have. You have had

0:25:350:25:40

real problems.

You're all by

yourself at the beginning. It was

0:25:400:25:45

late, AJ, AJ. All week I have been

trying to do the cans, so it is

0:25:450:25:49

great that Shirley said it was good,

it was amazing.

You have worked so

0:25:490:25:57

hard. You love Grease but you have

never been able to play sandy

0:25:570:26:01

before?

Are always used to put shows

and for my grandparents, they had to

0:26:010:26:06

watch. One of my sisters was sandy,

and I was the others. I am finally

0:26:060:26:11

sandy.

0:26:110:26:16

The scores are in.

0:26:160:26:17

The judges have their scores.

0:26:170:26:20

That is the first time you have ever

got two nines. You reacted. We are

0:26:390:26:46

so uncool. No, you're very cool.

0:26:460:26:50

If you loved Mollie and AJ's Grease

inspired rumba and would like to see

0:26:500:26:54

them dance in next week's semifinal,

please give them your support.

0:26:540:26:56

All the details are up on your

screen now and voting will open once

0:26:560:27:00

all our couples have danced.

0:27:000:27:02

Look.

0:27:020:27:05

Still to come, smoke

will fill the ballroom.

0:27:050:27:09

Meaning either Davood

is the Phantom Of The Opera,

0:27:090:27:11

or I've left a moussaka in the oven.

0:27:110:27:13

Tess.

0:27:130:27:14

Next up is Joe and his

partner, Katya.

0:27:140:27:20

CHEERING

Definitely the Musacchio.

0:27:200:27:28

They're dancing to a song

from the musical Cabaret.

0:27:280:27:30

As an actor, Joe's taken on plenty

of roles but tonight he's got

0:27:300:27:32

How amazing was Saturday night? It

was good.

The best Saturday night.

0:27:370:27:42

It was superb.

To get two tens, and

two nines was beautiful.

We were

0:27:420:27:53

best overall.

It feels good. It

feels really good.

This week, it is

0:27:530:28:01

the samba. It is Money, Money, from

Cabaret. I have done a few musicals

0:28:010:28:09

in my time, the first one when I was

12 years old at school in Glasgow.

0:28:090:28:13

Maybe I can show you where my love

of acting started.

Really?

A trip

0:28:130:28:19

down memory lane. Joe McFadden,

actor.

Hello. Nice to see you.

Good

0:28:190:28:25

to see you. What kind of student was

Joe?

Fantastic. It is spotlight on

0:28:250:28:31

him and the way he goes.

I have some

footage up my sleeve. It was a real

0:28:310:28:38

trip down memory lane.

Oh, no. You

love being on stage. It is perfect

0:28:380:28:43

for our musicals weak performance.

My old stomping ground. We performed

0:28:430:28:48

in front of my old school. It seems

perfect to come back on musicals

0:28:480:28:53

weak to win I developed my love of

acting and musicals and hopefully I

0:28:530:28:57

will pull it out of the bag at the

weekend.

0:28:570:28:59

CHEERING

Good luck Joe and Katya.

0:28:590:29:07

Dancing the samba,

from the musical Cabaret,

0:29:070:29:08

Joe McFadden and Katya Jones!

0:29:080:29:10

MUSIC: "Money, Money".

0:29:170:29:21

APPLAUSE

0:30:530:31:02

You're on the money, Joe! Brilliant.

0:31:040:31:13

Show tunes, you're in your element.

0:31:130:31:18

Wasn't that brilliant? Look at that!

Those acting skills of yours were

0:31:180:31:27

put to good use there.

0:31:270:31:28

He topped the leaderboard last week.

0:31:280:31:30

How did he do tonight, Craig?

0:31:300:31:34

I was all ready for this samba to

fail, with the idea and the concept,

0:31:340:31:38

but you know what? It was

incredible. The characterisation,

0:31:380:31:46

timing, it was engaging, I loved it.

We love it when Craig loves it.

0:31:460:31:52

Darcey?

Wonderful characterisation,

how you were able to gel such an

0:31:520:31:58

iconic role as the host with this

samba cinema incredibly difficult,

0:31:580:32:04

and you kept in character all the

way through with all that difficult

0:32:040:32:07

technique. The feet were slightly

turned out, but the flexibility and

0:32:070:32:13

the shadow roles at the end...

Does

Joe have what it takes to make this

0:32:130:32:23

semifinal, Shirley?

Absolutely. When

you got this samba at this late

0:32:230:32:29

stage in the game, I was extremely

nervous, but you married everything

0:32:290:32:33

together. You're acting skills are

off the chart will stop walking from

0:32:330:32:38

that corner said this, into your

natural role and your shadow role at

0:32:380:32:43

the end. Fantastic!

Divinely

decadent, and slightly twisted.

0:32:430:32:54

That's not me! The character, you

brought him perfectly to life.

0:32:540:33:01

Imagine a samba in Berlin, the

Kitcat club, 1931 - it could not

0:33:010:33:05

have been better than that.

The

comments couldn't be better commie

0:33:050:33:16

really -- couldn't be better,

really.

0:33:160:33:21

Joe and Katya, congratulations.

You've found it nerve-racking

0:33:300:33:32

because it was a different kind of

samba, slower, I believe.

We loved

0:33:320:33:39

it, absolutely loved it.

And it has

been your dream to be in a musical?

0:33:390:33:45

It has. I just want to say a quick

hello to my drama teacher who

0:33:450:33:51

couldn't be there. I owe everything

to her.

0:33:510:33:53

The scores are in.

0:33:530:33:54

The judges have their scores.

0:33:540:33:58

Thank you, darling. Thank you so

much.

You look so cute.

0:34:170:34:23

If you enjoyed Joe and Katya's samba

and would like to see see them

0:34:230:34:27

dancing in next week's semifinal,

then you will need to vote for them.

0:34:270:34:30

All the details you need

to show your support

0:34:300:34:32

are on the screen and voting

will open towards

0:34:320:34:34

the end of the show.

0:34:340:34:35

There is all of this still to come.

0:34:350:34:38

The hardest thing about this routine

is that everything is slow and

0:34:420:34:47

controlled, so you really have to

have strength in your muscles.

We

0:34:470:34:52

can have lifts here, which is great,

but you want to make sure they are

0:34:520:34:56

right and work with the music and

are pleasing to the eye.

I had been

0:34:560:35:00

waiting to do a charleston. Every

time I have seen one, I have been

0:35:000:35:04

like, I wish that was me. I hope we

can deliver this.

I'm looking

0:35:040:35:10

forward to all of that. What have

you got there?

It is a little dog

0:35:100:35:17

from the Oliver routine. I've got

him totally under control, don't

0:35:170:35:20

worry! What's next?

It is and they

are dressed as Cats.

Wrong word!

0:35:200:35:31

And dancing next is Debbie

and her partner, Giovanni.

0:35:310:35:38

They're dancing to a song

from the musical Cats and they're

0:35:380:35:41

hoping this American smooth

will have the judges

0:35:410:35:43

purring with delight.

0:35:430:35:44

There wasn't one second of the

Argentine tango I didn't enjoy. The

0:35:510:35:55

atmosphere in the studio was

tingling.

You were totally

0:35:550:35:59

unbelievable. I wish I could dance

like you, my darling.

Wow!

0:35:590:36:07

Quarterfinals!

Ready to go?

Absolutely.

This week, Debian

0:36:070:36:18

Giovanni are getting their claws

into an American Smooth. -- Debbie

0:36:180:36:26

and Giovanni.

The thing I find

interesting about this dance is that

0:36:260:36:30

there are so many spins, and it is

really important to get the

0:36:300:36:32

technique right.

Where are you

going? I am the man, I am wearing

0:36:320:36:39

the trousers.

Giovanni's worried he

has put so many pivots, but those

0:36:390:36:47

are the least of my worries. We have

the faintest lifts, where he thinks

0:36:470:36:51

I am a 20-year-old and not a

59-year-old, but I do get excited

0:36:510:36:55

because I can't believe I'm actually

them. It's that muscle where I am in

0:36:550:37:00

pain. Because I am suffering with a

back problem, I am struggling with

0:37:000:37:06

the lifts this week, but I will give

it everything I've got to get them

0:37:060:37:11

right. I feel like I've climbed to

the top of a mountain, but I think

0:37:110:37:14

we are set to go.

0:37:140:37:17

Dancing the American smooth,

APPLAUSE

0:39:140:39:21

The atmosphere in here! Beautiful!

What a partnership! Shirley is

0:39:280:39:40

giving you a standing ovation as

well as the audience. That left -

0:39:400:39:44

exquisite! -- that lift.

0:39:440:39:49

No wonder you look like

the cat who got the cream.

0:39:490:39:52

Two tens last week.

0:39:520:39:53

How was Debbie tonight, Darcey?

0:39:530:39:55

She was stunning. I am purring with

delight. It was the fluidity, how

0:39:550:40:01

one move ran into the next. When you

join together and you turn and

0:40:010:40:08

reverse and turn out and then in and

came into Holt, my goodness! The

0:40:080:40:13

coordination with the arms and

everything, it was so exquisite. --

0:40:130:40:18

came into hold. And that embrace

must my goodness! -- and that

0:40:180:40:31

embrace - my goodness! I think it is

going to be a memory etched in

0:40:310:40:38

everybody's hearts for a long time.

It was just beautiful, intimate,

0:40:380:40:43

polished. It was inwardly feeling. I

felt every moment with you. When you

0:40:430:40:49

did the spinning live, came out and

stay balanced and kept yourself

0:40:490:40:55

together, that was hugely impressive

for me. Well done, Debbie.

Hugely

0:40:550:41:01

impressed with these comments so

far. Bruno?

A smash hit!

0:41:010:41:11

Interpretation in the technical

skills, flawless, but what you did,

0:41:110:41:15

you created a sense of pathos in the

room, it was tangible. You took

0:41:150:41:21

everyone with you in the story. The

story was told so beautifully and

0:41:210:41:26

flawlessly, it was mesmerising.

Look

at Craik's face.

Prrrr!

I think he

0:41:260:41:48

liked it! Thank you, judges. It

doesn't get much better than that,

0:41:480:41:53

does it? Give him a lick on the way

past! Give it up for Debian

0:41:530:42:02

Giovanni. -- Debbie and Giovanni.

Anton just turn to me and said, that

0:42:020:42:15

was amazing. And you had a difficult

week? Very difficult, yes. I think I

0:42:150:42:21

forget I'm 59 and keep thinking I'm

20. It caught up with me this week.

0:42:210:42:25

But it was worth it. He really

pushes you, but it is worth the

0:42:250:42:32

experience.

And that was amazing

choreography.

Well done.

0:42:320:42:40

The scores are in.

0:42:400:42:41

The judges have their scores.

0:42:410:42:43

I think they're happy. Well done.

0:43:070:43:11

If you thought Debbie and Giovanni's

0:43:110:43:13

feline American smooth

0:43:130:43:15

was the cat's whiskers,

then you will need to vote.

0:43:150:43:17

All the details are on your screen

now and the vote will open once

0:43:170:43:20

all our couples have danced.

0:43:200:43:24

Still to come, Alexandra and Gorka

0:43:240:43:30

Well done, guys.

0:43:310:43:33

Our next couple fighting

for their place in the semifinal

0:43:330:43:35

is Davood and his partner, Nadiya.

0:43:350:43:42

Last week, he delivered

0:43:420:43:43

a beautiful waltz.

0:43:430:43:44

But tonight we'll see a darker side

of Davood as he takes

0:43:440:43:47

on the Argentine tango

as the Phantom Of The Opera.

0:43:470:43:49

The waltz, how wonderful was that?

So magical.

I had no clue how it had

0:43:570:44:03

gone. There were lovely comments

about the whole performance.

0:44:030:44:08

Stylish, extremely elegant, I was

totally charmed.

Here we are - the

0:44:080:44:13

quarterfinals, musicals week... I

want this to be so epic. We are

0:44:130:44:20

doing the Argentine tango. The main

theme from Phantom of the Opera. I

0:44:200:44:25

believe I am the first male

celebrity doing the Argentine tango,

0:44:250:44:29

so no pressure.

It is such a

beautiful dance, so intense. Make

0:44:290:44:36

sure it is more this...

Nadiya

spirits Davood after the West

0:44:360:44:46

Do you have some advice? -- off to

the west end for some tips.

Would

0:44:480:44:58

you like to see a preview of our

Argentine tango?

We would love to.

I

0:44:580:45:08

thought it was passionate and

beautiful.

I was hugely impressed.

0:45:080:45:13

The Phantom is such an iconic

character. It is such a good story,

0:45:130:45:18

it will stand us in good stead and

we will use it all tonight in this

0:45:180:45:22

Argentine tango.

CHEERING

Brilliant, brilliant.

0:47:160:47:25

Goodness me.

Yes. The standard of

dancing tonight. We wanted drama and

0:47:250:47:40

you brought it. Thank you very much.

Our first male celebrity to do the

0:47:400:47:46

Argentine tango.

How did he do? I

liked the character and you had some

0:47:460:47:51

spectacular lifts, but you had some

stumbling problems this evening and

0:47:510:47:56

some balance issues. I am sure you

could feel that. I would have liked

0:47:560:48:00

you to be more in control. It did

not go the best this evening. OK.

0:48:000:48:04

Bruno. It powerful, menacing

presence, yes, good figures and

0:48:040:48:11

images, but it was not slick enough.

You cannot be wobbly in the

0:48:110:48:16

Argentine tango. It is starting

Panther. Moments were unsteady. It

0:48:160:48:21

was a good effort, but.

OK. Yes, I

think that hampered your lead a

0:48:210:48:28

little bit. I did not feel like you

were leading the dance. However, I

0:48:280:48:32

love the concept, and I love the

fact that you maintain the Nadiya's

0:48:320:48:38

balance through the arabesque turn.

I really liked it.

An excellent

0:48:380:48:45

leading man.

Darcey. You started off

immaculately. I believe that the

0:48:450:48:51

balance and control, as Craig said,

in the Times, the arabesque, it was

0:48:510:48:55

here, but as it got faster, trying

to maintain that there were balance

0:48:550:49:00

problems. That is so difficult in an

Argentine tango, but well done.

0:49:000:49:04

Thank you. We all thought you were

amazing. You were a complete novice.

0:49:040:49:11

You have come so far in this

competition. He should be proud of

0:49:110:49:16

themselves. It is Davood and Nadiya.

Well done.

0:49:160:49:20

CHEERING

Well done.

0:49:200:49:27

They loved it. The atmosphere in the

studio was electric.

Did you feel

0:49:270:49:32

that? Maybe it got to me too much,

maybe that made me go. But I loved

0:49:320:49:36

it and the atmosphere was great.

It

is fantastic and massive

0:49:360:49:45

congratulations, you're engaged.

0:49:490:49:51

29. Yes. Slightly disappointed?

Gets, there were some balance

0:50:020:50:07

issues, so that is fit enough.

But I

loved it. They said it was a great

0:50:070:50:12

dance.

Look who I'm with!

0:50:350:50:37

It's Denise Lewis and Ed Balls.

0:50:370:50:40

Lovely to see you.

0:50:400:50:41

Ed, what's it like to be

back in the ballroom?

0:50:410:50:48

Fond memories? It brings back all of

the nerves and the excitement. I

0:50:480:50:51

have got to say, I could never get

anywhere near the quality we have

0:50:510:50:55

seen tonight.

They have been

brilliant. The standard is

0:50:550:50:58

sensational. You will enjoy this.

0:50:580:51:02

Right, our final couple is Alexandra

and her partner, Gorka.

0:51:020:51:08

Tonight, she's dancing

for a place in the semifinal

0:51:080:51:10

and she needs this Charleston

to be

0:51:100:51:12

supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

0:51:120:51:15

I love dancing the rumba but I feel

I allowed my nerves to get the

0:51:200:51:23

better of me.

I felt it lacked any

sort of connection and chemistry.

0:51:230:51:30

You never know what is going to

happen in this competition. I was

0:51:300:51:34

not shot we were in the bottom two,

but I thought, I have to give it my

0:51:340:51:39

all. Thankfully we are still here to

fight another week.

0:51:390:51:46

For musicals weak, Alexandra and

Gorka I dance seeing a Charleston to

0:51:460:51:52

a song from Mary Poppins. But what

is it called, Gorka?

Super... No, it

0:51:520:52:00

is

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

0:52:000:52:00

I will channel my inner Mary

Poppins.

Hold on, that is Debbie

0:52:000:52:05

McGee's trick.

I did it first.

Ready? I am ready.

Let's do it.

Why

0:52:050:52:14

are we in your kitchen? Because of

all your hard work teaching me how

0:52:140:52:18

to dance, I want to put you a meal.

Thank you, I'm starving.

Do you like

0:52:180:52:24

to cook?

I love cooking. It is a

typical English meal like spaghetti

0:52:240:52:29

Bolognese. What do you think of the

food? It is very good. The pastor is

0:52:290:52:34

on point. Hopefully on Saturday

dance will be as good as she is in

0:52:340:52:39

the kitchen.

Let's do a Charleston.

If the judges like her Charleston as

0:52:390:52:47

much as Gorka like my cooking, we're

in for a great night.

0:55:220:55:27

you, Bruno. So true. So much swivel.

Surely you have to be impressed,

0:55:270:55:32

Craig?

Yes, you had better swivel

than Gorka. Well done, I love that,

0:55:320:55:39

brilliant.

Darcey.

It was absolutely

terrific. The ease, the energy, and

0:55:390:55:50

who could tell who was not the

professional? You were up there. My

0:55:500:55:55

goodness, the amount of detail you

gave us. It did not stop. You did

0:55:550:56:00

not take a breath. Even with a plain

swivel, you give us twisting and

0:56:000:56:04

turning.

Every possible.

Fabulous.

Thank you.

The energy, Shirley? Last

0:56:040:56:13

week you were in the bottom two and

this week you were stratospheric. I

0:56:130:56:17

loved it, you were brilliant.

It is

official. You are a hit. She is

0:56:170:56:24

fabulous. We will not forget that

for a long time, Alexandra and

0:56:240:56:31

Gorka. Well done.

How did you feel?

I feel like I am in shock. You

0:56:310:56:43

wanted to do this dance more than

any other.

Absolutely, it is so much

0:56:430:56:47

fun.

No wonder, she is better than

me. Gorka, you are very good at

0:56:470:56:55

dancing. Well done, Gorka.

It is an

honour to close the show. Such an

0:56:550:57:02

honour to close the show, and that

the quarterfinals it means so much,

0:57:020:57:07

so I am just grateful.

Happy. Happy.

This guy is just learning.
