Hello and welcome to

Strictly Come Dancing -

0:05:310:05:33

The Results.

0:05:330:05:37

A huge thank you to the stars

of Dreamgirls and our

0:05:370:05:40

professional dancers for that

glittering opening routine.

APPLAUSE

0:05:440:05:45

On Saturday night,

our celebrities made amazing song

0:05:450:05:48

and dance of this weekend's

Musicals Special.

0:05:480:05:51

Later on we will reveal

which of our remaining celebrities

0:05:510:05:55

are safely through to

next week's semifinal.

0:05:550:05:59

Sadly, one couple won't make it.

0:05:590:06:02

Your votes have been combined

with the judges scores,

0:06:020:06:05

and the two couples with the lowest

overall points will face each

0:06:050:06:08

other in the dance-off.

0:06:080:06:09

The decision of who stays

and who goes will then

0:06:090:06:11

be down to these four.

0:06:110:06:12

Please welcome the judges.

0:06:410:06:47

Amber Riley, Beverley Knight

and Cassidy Janson - aka

0:06:470:06:50

APPLAUSE

0:06:530:06:54

Plus, the judges will be

discussing Saturday night's

0:06:540:06:56

performances in more detail

frame by frame.

0:06:560:07:03

Soon, we will reveal the first

couple in the dance-off.

0:07:030:07:06

But first, here's a reminder

of what happened when our Strictly

0:07:060:07:08

stars took on some of the greatest

show tunes of all time...

0:07:080:07:11

APPLAUSE

0:07:110:07:14

Another opening of another show, a

chance to see... Hello!

It's a big

0:07:140:07:21

week this week, a quarterfinal. Not

only that. It is Musicals Week.

0:07:210:07:32

week this week, a quarterfinal. Not

only that. It is Musicals Week.

0:07:320:07:36

Everyone Is

So Excited And I Think

We Can Get Into all our own

0:07:360:07:40

characters.

I will try to charm the

judges.

0:07:400:07:45

It feels like we are all in a West

End show. Everyone is dolled up and

0:07:450:07:51

looks amazing. It's incredible.

We are all at that point where we

0:07:510:07:58

are thinking, its quarterfinals, but

we need to make sure we got on stage

0:07:580:08:01

to have the best time, because

nobody knows what's going to happen,

0:08:010:08:04

knows what weird is going to go.

Live in five, everybody... -- which

0:08:040:08:11

way it will go.

My favourite!

Its

quarterfinals!

We expect nothing but

0:08:110:08:20

the best. Shall we let the show

begins?

Its curtain time, and away

0:08:200:08:28

we go!

The flexibility, the acting

skills, off the charts. Fantastic!

0:08:280:08:41

I'm glad she said my acting was

good!

Joe has been great from the

0:08:410:08:47

beginning but is getting better and

better, and Katya's choreography is

0:08:470:08:51

genius.

Your quality of movement is

better and better.

I don't agree at

0:08:510:08:58

all. I liked it, but I didn't love

it.

I thought you got it just right.

0:08:580:09:03

Hard work!

For me it looked a little laboured

0:09:030:09:11

and heavy.

You had your swanlike

posture, and immaculate frame.

My

0:09:110:09:18

partner, I love you!

0:09:180:09:19

You did start off so immaculately

but there were balance problems.

0:09:210:09:30

Love the style, the Argentine Tango.

A bit gutted I do didn't it more

0:09:300:09:37

justice.

Practically perfect, well

done! Brilliant.

0:09:370:09:44

The amount of detail you give us,

fabulous!

0:09:440:09:56

Ten for you... It will be a memory

etched in everybody's hearts for a

0:09:560:10:00

long time. It is just beautiful. I

am purring with delight. Absolutely

0:10:000:10:05

seamless. Ten!

Oh!

APPLAUSE

0:10:050:10:25

Some truly show

stopping performances.

0:10:310:10:33

Six celebrities are waiting

in the wings all desperate to know

0:10:330:10:41

if they will be in next

week's semifinal.

0:10:410:10:43

Here's how the leaderboard looked

at the end of Saturday night.

0:10:430:10:50

But how have your votes

changed all of that?

0:10:500:10:53

The results are in...

0:10:530:10:58

In no particular order...

0:10:580:11:01

The first couple safely

through to next week is...

0:11:010:11:11

Debbie and Giovanni!

APPLAUSE

0:11:200:11:25

Thank you, thank you!

0:11:250:11:34

Going through to next

week's semifinal is...

0:11:340:11:42

Joe and Katya!

APPLAUSE

0:11:470:11:52

Thank you so much, thank you.

LAUGHTER

0:11:520:12:01

The first couple who must

compete for survival

0:12:010:12:05

in the dance-off is...

0:12:050:12:15

Davood and Nadiya. The rest of you

will have to wait a little longer to

0:12:170:12:24

find out if you are through. Davood

and Nadiya, please come down and

0:12:240:12:27

join me.

0:12:270:12:36

Dearie me.

0:12:360:12:37

No one wants to be in this position

especially this close

0:12:370:12:42

to the semifinal....

0:12:420:12:47

You have to expect a lower down on

the table, but it is a great dance

0:12:470:12:50

to do. We will do the dance again,

and hopefully we will get on, and

0:12:500:12:56

enjoy it. Yes!

Lets get some tips on

how to improve. Shirley, you said

0:12:560:13:07

Davood had balance issues. What can

he do?

Strength in your court, no

0:13:070:13:12

fidgeting on your feet, but

otherwise bring those wonderful

0:13:120:13:16

performances you brought us week

after week -- strength in your core.

0:13:160:13:22

We wish you the very best of luck

and we will see later on. Claudia,

0:13:220:13:28

over the year.

Thank you, Tess! --

over to you.

0:13:280:13:42

I have two sets of semifinalists

with me....

0:13:420:13:52

We are glad.

To get through to the

semifinals is enormous, it just

0:13:520:13:57

feels incredible.

Well done, but I

have news for you. You have to learn

0:13:570:14:01

to map dances, and incredibly the

jive and the foxtrot. How will you

0:14:010:14:11

tackle it? The hardest one first or

both together?

Perhaps the jive

0:14:110:14:16

because it is my favourite, so we

will start with a big push, and then

0:14:160:14:21

maybe the foxtrot.

Enormous luck,

and congratulations.

Thank you.

0:14:210:14:25

APPLAUSE

Joe, another one, congratulations!

0:14:250:14:32

APPLAUSE

And you worked incredibly hard. I

0:14:320:14:37

just want to know, what is harder,

learning all those lines as a heart

0:14:370:14:41

surgeon or are learning two dances

with this creature?

I will let you

0:14:410:14:46

know, but I think I would rather do

heart surgery and brain surgery at

0:14:460:14:49

the same time because you don't have

to do it live. I will let you know

0:14:490:14:53

next week.

You will be fine!

0:14:530:15:03

to do it live. I will let you know

next week.

You will be fine!

You

0:15:030:15:04

have been very honest. You said it

was incredibly hard.

It was, we

0:15:040:15:10

started off slow and that will help

us in the semifinal. He has

0:15:100:15:16

progressed so much.

Well done to you

both.

0:15:160:15:20

Now, it's time to welcome three

0:18:590:19:03

APPLAUSE.

0:19:030:19:09

Thank you to The Leading Ladies

and our professional dancers.

0:19:200:19:22

It's time now for a dance debrief

please welcome the judges.

0:19:220:19:25

MUSIC: You Can't Stop The Beat

0:19:250:19:27

APPLAUSE.

0:19:270:19:36

I love it. I love this stance, it is

getting longer and longer. On

0:19:360:19:43

Saturday night sometimes you have

limited time. You can on file if you

0:19:430:19:49

will. Let us start with you surely,

Debbie and Giovanni, you said it was

0:19:490:19:56

beautiful, but you said her dismount

was amazing.

She did a beautiful

0:19:560:20:03

circular left. She ended up going

into a fleckerl.

Thank you so much.

0:20:030:20:18

Darcey, I would like to talk to you

about Gemma and Alijaz, you only

0:20:180:20:23

gave them a seven, why is that?

The

frame and just went. She got to

0:20:230:20:31

relax. Everything is moving in the

upper body. We do not appreciate how

0:20:310:20:36

difficult it is to maintain it. By

the end as you get tired, it starts

0:20:360:20:42

to show and in the frame, it has to

be so fixed, this vertical line, so

0:20:420:20:48

that everything else looks easy and

effortless.

Craig, let us talk about

0:20:480:20:57

Alexandra and Gorka, you loved it,

you said she was better than Gorka,

0:20:570:21:02

what is the issue with the Number

10?

I find things wrong with things.

0:21:020:21:11

Honestly. Alexandra is great but

there is still some detail that she

0:21:110:21:16

is missing in the propeller step,

she is not bringing her knees

0:21:160:21:21

together. She does a barrel in turn,

girls do not normally do it. If you

0:21:210:21:27

are going to do it, one that places

the body to the floor and you need

0:21:270:21:33

to be facing it. She was too

vertical and upright for it. Her

0:21:330:21:40

knees were completely apart. You

lock the knee into here and then you

0:21:400:21:48

do a little propeller step. Hers was

out here, darling.

I prefer it when

0:21:480:21:55

it is out there.

We are coming up to

the final and we have to be picky.

0:21:550:22:01

It is sometimes not perfect. Thank

you. Quite scared. Bruno, I want to

0:22:010:22:08

talk about Joe and Katya.

You adored

his characterisation. It was so

0:22:080:22:15

vivid, relative to the time and

place. You were right there in

0:22:150:22:22

Berlin in 1931. It is a good samba.

He is not cheating. The content was

0:22:220:22:30

as good as the character.

Thank you.

We have to share this with the

0:22:300:22:40

group. This is what happened just

before we went live on Saturday

0:22:400:22:45

night, an extra contestant was in

the room. This is what happened.

Oh

0:22:450:22:52

my goodness!

0:22:520:23:02

APPLAUSE.

We love you, Ed! Thank you

very much. Let's hear it for the

0:23:030:23:16

judges.

0:23:160:23:18

Two couples are currently safely

through to our Semi-Final.

0:23:180:23:20

Who will be joining them?

0:23:200:23:21

Tess.

0:23:210:23:23

APPLAUSE CONTINUES

0:23:230:23:24

Thanks, Claudia.

0:23:240:23:33

One of our couples will join Davood

and Nadiya in the dance-off.

0:23:330:23:36

It's time to find out who.

0:23:360:23:38

In no particular order...

0:23:380:23:39

Securing a place in next

week's Semi-Final are...

0:23:390:23:49

Mollie and AJ!

0:23:550:24:05

Thank you!

APPLAUSE. Alexandra and Gorka and

0:24:050:24:18

Jimmy -- and Gemma and Alijaz.

0:24:180:24:21

One of you is safe.

0:24:210:24:22

One of you is in the dance-off.

0:24:220:24:24

I can reveal that the couple

in the bottom two tonight

0:24:240:24:26

who will compete in

the dance-off is...

0:24:260:24:32

Alexandra and Gorka.

0:24:330:24:43

Gemma and Alijaz, congratulations,

you are through to the semifinal

0:24:430:24:47

next week. Alexandra and worker,

please come and join me.

0:24:470:24:51

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE. -- Alexandra

and Gorka. Here we are again. Two

0:24:510:25:02

weeks in a row, lots of gasps in the

room. How does it feel?

We are

0:25:020:25:08

gutted. I hope I can say that for

you as well. We will try our best

0:25:080:25:14

and that is all that matters. We

have so much fun. It is dance were

0:25:140:25:23

weak have been able to laugh and

smile and play a little character,

0:25:230:25:28

let us do it again.

Craig you were

the only charge who did not give

0:25:280:25:34

Alexandra a Number 10, how can she

improve?

I cannot believe you're in

0:25:340:25:40

the dance-off again. It is crazy. It

is lunacy. There is not much you can

0:25:400:25:49

do to improve, but you could put

your knees together and the

0:25:490:25:53

propeller step, I want you to go out

there and dance for your life and

0:25:530:25:58

for your mother. Go out there and

give it your all.

Exactly the same.

0:25:580:26:09

We all loved it. Your beautiful

smile lights up the room. Gorgeous.

0:26:090:26:14

We will see you later.

0:26:140:26:18

Claudia, over to you....

0:26:180:26:19

APPLAUSE.

0:26:190:26:22

Thanks, Tess.

0:26:220:26:23

I'm here with four couples

who have all made it

0:26:230:26:25

through to our Semi-Final.

0:26:250:26:28

You look like you have not even

exhaled. You got a number six from

0:26:280:26:34

Craig and you were on the bottom of

the Leader Board. Did you think that

0:26:340:26:40

was you?

I said, we need to go

through the steps again before we

0:26:400:26:45

get the results. I am thrilled that

people have voted and we are here.

0:26:450:26:50

Thank you so much, from the bottom

of our dancing pirates.

Well done.

0:26:500:26:57

Mollie, a semifinalist. You have

trained over 300 hours in this

0:26:570:27:04

competition.

How happy are you? I

cannot put it into words. I am over

0:27:040:27:16

the moon. I am so grateful to you,

we train every hour of the day, per

0:27:160:27:23

AJ must be like, not again! I am so

grateful. Thank you to anyone who

0:27:230:27:30

voted for us.

Your dedication is

outstanding, you are willing to

0:27:300:27:36

train over 300 hours.

Only half that

time is spent kissing! I am joking!

0:27:360:27:44

I am joking! I'm joking!

0:27:440:27:50

If you adore the ballroom

and are always eager for more then

0:27:500:27:53

why restrict your Strictly action

to just the weekend?

0:27:530:27:55

Zoe, over to you...

0:27:550:27:59

Musicals week might be coming to a

close but we love to make a song and

0:27:590:28:03

dance of things here at It Takes

Two. We have got glitz and glamour

0:28:030:28:09

galore. And plenty of show stopping

moments. Debbie McGee, you are a

0:28:090:28:21

lucky woman. Join me for It Takes

Two every week night on BBC Two.

APPLAUSE.

0:28:280:28:31

Thanks, Zoe.

0:28:310:28:32

Davood and Nadiya,

and Alexandra and Gorka.

0:28:320:28:34

Their next performance

will be their last opportunity

0:28:340:28:35

to try and win over the judges.

0:28:350:28:42

You enjoyed this stance a lot on

Saturday night, the audience loved

0:28:420:28:46

it, how are you going to attack the

dance.

I have to enjoy it in the

0:28:460:28:50

same way. It could be our last

dance. I want to go out on a real

0:28:500:28:57

high and enjoy every minute of it.

It was a powerful dance, lovely and

0:28:570:29:03

fun.

Please get into position. Let

us hear it for Davood and Nadiya.

0:29:030:29:14

Alexandra, how much do you want to

be here next week?

It means so much

0:29:140:29:19

to me that we have already made it

this far. It is such a blessing and

0:29:190:29:24

an absolute privilege to do this

show. True happiness. And Davood is

0:29:240:29:35

like a brother to me and I love him

to pieces.

Best of luck, sweetheart.

0:29:350:29:47

Someone that --

0:29:470:29:51

None of our couples

want to leave especially this close

0:29:510:29:54

to the Semi-Final, but sadly

someone must go tonight.

0:29:540:29:56

Dancing first to stay

in the competition, please

0:29:560:29:58

give a big hand to

0:29:580:29:59

Davood and Nadiya.

0:31:450:31:55

And now fighting for

0:33:560:34:06

Well done to both of you.

0:34:080:34:13

They really could have done no more!

0:34:130:34:16

Now it's time to find out

who will be back to dance again

0:34:160:34:22

in next week's Semi-Final.

0:34:220:34:23

Judges, it's time to decide.

0:34:230:34:25

Based on that dance,

and that dance alone, I'm

0:34:250:34:27

about to ask each of you the name

of the couple you think

0:34:270:34:30

deserves to stay and why.

0:34:300:34:31

The couple with the most

votes will remain in

0:34:310:34:33

the competition, meaning

the other couple is

0:34:330:34:35

out of Strictly Come Dancing.

0:34:350:34:45

In the event of a split decision,

Head Judge Shirley,

0:34:480:34:50

you will have the casting vote.

0:34:500:34:52

This is it.

0:34:520:34:53

Craig, who are you

going to save and why?

0:34:530:34:55

This couple were out there on a

mission and completely and utterly

0:34:550:34:57

named it. That couple is Alexandra

and Gorka.

One vote for Alexandra

0:34:570:35:10

and Gorka.

0:35:100:35:10

Darcey, who do you think

deserves to stay in the

0:35:100:35:13

competition and why?

0:35:130:35:14

competition and why?

0:35:140:35:14

Both couples gave 100% and night and

it is tough to see anybody go but

0:35:140:35:19

there was one that totally outshine

the other and that was Alexandra and

0:35:190:35:22

Gorka.

Two votes for Alexandra and

Gorka, which means if Bruno chooses

0:35:220:35:34

to save them they are through to the

semifinal.

0:35:340:35:36

Bruno, who do you want

to stay in Strictly

0:35:360:35:38

Come Dancing and why?

0:35:380:35:41

Stronger, powerful, overall better,

Alexandra and Gorka.

That means we

0:35:410:35:48

are going to have to say goodbye to

Davood and Nadiya. Alexandra and

0:35:480:35:54

Gorka, congratulations. We will see

you in next week's semifinal.

0:35:540:36:01

Shirley, although it will make

no difference to the

0:36:010:36:03

result, did you agree?

0:36:030:36:05

Alexandra and Gorka.

0:36:050:36:13

Gorka and Alexandra, OK.

0:36:130:36:14

Davood and Nadiya, we're

so sorry to see you go.

0:36:140:36:18

We are going to miss you guys!

Personal highlights, Blackpool

0:36:180:36:23

Tower, have you enjoyed your

Strictly experience?

I provide the

0:36:230:36:29

best time and I never thought I

would reach this far, never thought

0:36:290:36:32

I would get to this point, to meet

such amazing people, some of them

0:36:320:36:35

left up there. Every comment I

appreciated, good and bad. Lovely to

0:36:350:36:44

meet you, Claudia, and to dance in

front of audiences like this it has

0:36:440:36:47

honestly been a real gift.

I have never done anything like this

0:36:470:36:53

before, so it has been an

unforgettable experience, and I will

0:36:530:36:56

spend the next couple of weeks at

home dancing with my two beautiful

0:36:560:37:00

girls who are now such big fans of

this show.

I bet they are proud of

0:37:000:37:05

you.

They are.

And now URI dancer!

Obviously and into thanks many

0:37:050:37:13

people, my beautiful family and my

wife -- you are a dancer. This is

0:37:130:37:18

her first year on this show, and I

think she has done well, Alexandra.

0:37:180:37:24

APPLAUSE

Brilliant choreography. She is a

0:37:240:37:28

brilliant partner, and she is a

great teacher and now she is a

0:37:280:37:31

really really good friend and I am

so pleased to have met you.

Aw! What

0:37:310:37:37

a lovely speech.

You are a

gentleman.

Would you like to say

0:37:370:37:44

something to Davood?

Just a big

thank you, and I am such a lucky

0:37:440:37:47

girl to have had you as my partner.

It is such a privilege to be a part

0:37:470:37:51

of your journey, because I think it

was incredible. The way you improved

0:37:510:37:58

and came so far, I am so proud of

you.

Thank you for teaching me to

0:37:580:38:04

dance.

Thank you.

0:38:040:38:04

Off you go and prepare

for your last dance.

0:38:040:38:08

Sorry to see you go. Sadly, Davood

and Nadiya become the tenth couple

0:38:080:38:16

to leave Strictly Come Dancing.

0:38:160:38:20

They will join Zoe on It Takes Two

on Monday on BBC2.

The theme of the weekend is musicals, and the show opens with the Strictly professional dancers performing a routine inspired by the popular musical Dreamgirls. Then the results are in as Tess Daly reveals the names of the couples who are through to the semi-finals and the two couples who have to face each other in the dance-off. The fearsome foursome of Shirley Ballas, Darcey Bussell, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli then decide who to save. There is also a music performance from the Leading Ladies.
