The final was a spectacular with three great dances each from all remaining three contestants, Danny Mac, Ore Oduba and Louise Rednapp.
Ore was the first to dance with his singing in the rain which got him 39 points from the judges! Louise did her Flashdance with Bruno describing it as as scorching hot and saucy and a lot saucier and better giving a 80’s flashback danced with precision, clean and looking good. Danny and Oti where next with their quickstep. Having the pressure of the one to beat in this competition may have got to Danny as he made a small but noticeable error, which was picked up by the judges awarding him one of his lowest marks of 36!
Next came the Showdances, which literally showed off the dancers strengths. Ore’s dance was brilliant and was loved by all the judges giving him a 40 score. Bruno oozed praise, “It was a ballroom basics extravagancer. That mixed all the best of classic Hollywood – glitz, glamour, broadway panache. I’m totally razzle dazzled by it.”
Louise and Danny’s dances were fantastic too. But Danny’s was extremely brilliant with Len loving it for being full of dance with moments of magic. Darcy thought it was the perfect Argentinian Tango and Craig “totally brilliant”.
When Ore and Joanne Clifton dance their Jive you kind of knew that these were the guys to win. They were on fire. Even Craig commented that he ‘Can’t bear it, your so good, nothing to complain about.” Len said that Ore was what this show is about, with no dance background and gradually as the weeks go by you have grown to love dancing. Bruno stated that he was the “spirit of strictly!”
However Louise danced a perfect passadobla and also received 40 score. Danny’s last dance was their African inspired Samba which they executed perfectly.
The public voted on the night awarding Ore Oduba the sort after glitter ball trophy.
