    Thought it better to start a new thread for this year rather than add to the 2015 thread.

    I am in a real predicament now -torn by my loyalty to Pasha and wanting to vote for the three dances I enjoyed the most.

    hi all,

    i have been watching but the laptop was purloined by my DD til 5 minutes ago (think I'm going to have to dust off the netbook for Saturday evenings from now on).

    Voted Daisy, Greg and Claudia tonight, Ore was absolutely flippin fantastic but didn't vote for him as theres no way the judges will send him home against anyone else in the bottom 2.

    In the end I voted for Danny, Lesley and Naga (to keep them out of the dance off). Wanted to vote for Ore but he will get millions of votes so don't feel too bad about it.

    I've not watched it yet as my Sky box was stuck on standby when I got home - saw no recording light at 7:15-20. Not on the iPlayer yet.

    Not read any posts of tonight's show, the scores etc.

    Just viewed the clips of the dances. Need to hear the comments from the judges - esp Craig. Oh dear Ed!

    I just have to say that Danny's and Ore's dances were UTTERLY fantastic imo - probably two of the best I've ever seen on SCD.

    I voted for Danny, Ore and Daisy. If I had a fourth vote it would have gone to Greg.

    There are soooooo many good ones this year, three votes are not enough. After last week, it's hard to know who will go. I would imagine Anastacia or Naga, though it should be Ed. It could me a mid tabler though who is only in the dance off because they fall between the two stools of "voting because they are brilliant" and "voting purely to keep them in". I hope Lesley stays, her Charleston was great and the energy was great for her age.
