Shirley Ballas is the new judge on Strictly. It was confirmed today. I think she is a good choice and she should do a fantastic job.

They were so darn good together. Hopefully Oti is blessed with another good one this upcoming season.

A loss for the Strictly world.


Sir Bruce Forsyth, the veteran entertainer and presenter of many successful TV shows, has died aged 89. 
The former Strictly Come Dancing presenter had been unwell for some time and was in hospital earlier this year after a severe chest infection.
His long career in showbusiness began when he was aged just 14.
He became Britain's best-paid TV star, famous for hosting game shows like The Generation Game, Play Your Cards Right and The Price is Right.
He also presented BBC One's Strictly with Tess Daly from 2004 to 2014.

This is sad news indeed. Wonder who will host the Christmas special this year. R.I.P., Sir Bruce.

Tributes to Sir Bruce have been flowing in. I read a great one from Tess Daly.

Three new pros have been announced. One of them is apparently replacing Lovely Natalie. Crying

The cast is complete. Now we have to wait and see who they are dancing with. I've read Ruth Langsford is over 50. Stand by, Anton.

Shirley isn't just joining the panel, but has been announced as new head judge. Wonder how the other three feel about that.

Think there are any bruised egos? But she is qualified for sure.

Qualified she is; no doubt about it. I honestly have no idea if Darcey, Bruno, or Craig feel set back, but I'd sure like to know. My bigger concern though is that Shirley might be too outspoken where Len was diplomatic. Len on Strictly had little to do with the jetlagged, cranky old geezer on DWTS.

Yes Shirley is quite opinionated and doesn't lack confidence in her own opinions. So there could be undercurrents at the judges table.

That reminded me to check how Lovely Aliona is doing. Here's a recent pic.

So lovely Oti is paired with Jonnie Peacock, the Paralympic champion. Lots of people seem excited about these two.

A comment from a Strictly FB group.
 
Lovely show, but I do hope the new judge Shirley is kind, somewhat like Len, because she came over as Strict!  Craig needs someone to balance him out, besides Darcy. At least Shirley knows what she's about but I also hope she doesn't expect the contestants to be like pros. As you can tell even I feel a little intimidated by her

No wonder others share our concern about Shirley. Who knows- she might make Craig look like Mr. Nice Guy...
Hope Oti can work her magic again. Yay! And Anton got Ruth Langsford. I knew it. LOL

I have been watching bits of the dances as they come up in my fb group. Everybody looks good. Loved Jonni and Oti.

Don't think I can manage to watch today (it's my wedding anniversary). I'll try to catch up tomorrow. If Oti's doing well, that's all I need to know.

Happy Anniversary brother and Mrs. DMD! Yep, I think it's best you focus on your wife and leave the dancing to another day.


Oti just blows me away. She is so perfect.

Oti is a fairytale princess, but Jonnie is far from Danny so far. The dance was maybe a tad too American for the British taste. 20 isn't a desaster, but given the highscore was 31, there's a lot of work to do. Overall, DWTS had a better start this time. There were some promising performances though; I enjoyed the classical ones the most, but I also had fun with Giovanni's Italian approach of the Paso.
Checking the leaderboard, I was surprised that in many cases Shirley scored higher than Craig- even highest of all in some cases. I certainly didn't expect that.
On another note, one of the new pros caught my eye. Have a look at Australian red head Dianne Buswell. I think you know what I mean. Couldn't they be sisters?

An Australian redhead caught my brother's eye? Imagine that, what a surprise! She is lovely though. 


I still have some more dances to watch but overall this seems a very promising season. I don't think Jonnie and Oti can win but I will enjoy them as long as possible. 


Shirley surprised me too. I thought she would play the dragon lady a bit. Lots of posters on my Strictly FB group missing Len. Especially the Len's Lens thing he did. I actually wish he had chosen to stay in England and retired from DWTS. Now hearing from Tony Dovolani about his desire to judge and I think he would be a good one.

It would be nice to have Tony back. He has tons of experience, and I miss his smile. But I doubt it will happen as long as his business partners participate.

As for the routines, look at Alexandra and Gorka, Ruth and Anton, or Charlotte and Brendan. Technique aside, that's the style and class I meant.
