    Michelle needed that week, she was starting to drop off a bit. I thought it was flat at first but then it really picked up.

    I think Karim thinks by putting showy tricks into every performance he’s gonna get high marks but the judges seem quite down on him, I thought it was better than a 7.

    Despite the faults, I enjoyed Alex/Kevin the best. It was a bit boring yesterday, I have to say. So I was glad it ended with something I really enjoyed. The dances, although all good, were not spectacular. The music was awful most of the time. I expected more of the Halloween edition.

    Expected Katherine in the dance-off, she always just seems to be giving 75%, but I think she was better than Mike, whose novelty shine has worn off it seems!

    I'm not surprised of Katherine leaving, I don't really get the uproar. Mike danced better in the dance-off.

    I thought Katherine and Johannes had some of the best chemistry of all the couples but she was always quite middle of the road throughout.

    Am I in the minority of thinking Chris and Karen’s street dance was crap? it didn’t feel Strictly at all, and were the band and singers even playing or was it just the track? If we’re going for entertainment, Mike Bushell is the man this week.

    I loved Karim and Michelle the most, Karim’s quickstep was one of the best I can remember cos I usually find quickstep a bit boring.

    I hope Emma W or Saffron leave this week, although I did find Emma B and Anton’s dance quite limp - she could be in danger. Do Shirley and Anton hate each other?

    Poor Neil must feel rubbish that Alex is doing much better with Kevin.

    I never noticed cause I couldn't take my eyes off Johannes.

    We didn't think much of Chris' street dance either. We were surprised how positive the judges were.

    Karim probably did the most entertaining quickstep ever IMO.

    Was that the first ever same-sex dance on Strictly during Emeli Sande’s performance? I think Shirley said there will be a same-sex couple next year, I expect to see Johannes with another man.

    So glad Emma B got through! Mike & Katya survive another dance-off, here come the cries of fix, but he was better than Emma.

    I think they had one last year as well but I can't be 100% sure

    Happy to see Emma B got through, although I don't like Anton. But this dance was just beautiful.

    I didn't really have a favorite for the dance-off, but I will miss Aljaz.

    As for Johannes: I loved him dancing with another man and I think he should get his own show. Can't take my eyes of off him when he dances.

    I agree - thought it was awful. They didn't seem in sync with each other and it seemed a bit amateur. Was very surprised at the positive comments, especially as they seemed pretty harsh with other comments this week.

    Yeah I thought it was one of his worst dances. There seemed to be no technique.

    I can’t bear Aljaz, he’s become such a loud show-off in the last three years and he does the worst facial expressions - I don’t remember him being like that when he first joined.

    Agreed on your first comment.

    But don't come for Aljaz. I love his facial expressions. He's one of my favorite dancers. He radiates positivity.

    It was awful. I was a 'street dancer' and I hate when they throw this one in and because it should be 'hip hop' it usually gets a pass.

    I loved Michelle again this week, she made the American Smooth much more watchable than usual. I cannot believe she was in the dance off, yet came second on the leaderboard! She must be picking up the lowest viewer votes... I vote for her whenever I watch live.

    I found Saffron’s routine nice but a bit smoke and mirrors; AJ did most of the work. Emma much better this week!

    Definitely Mike’s week to leave, he was not good.

    Good thing Mike finally left.

    I was surprised to see Michele in the dance off. Everyone on Twitter seem to love her.
    Maybe because I only know her from Strictly, but I don't feel a connection when she dances.
    So for me, I wouldn't mind to see her go.

    I think Michelle may have the rebound effect now. People probably assumed she was safe. If it’s any consolation, Caroline Flack was in the dance-off this same week in her series and ended up winning so anything is possible.

    Plus Debbie was in the dance off with Giovanni at a similar point I think? I hope it was complacency but being an American woman she was already at a disadvantage in this show.

    Okay, for the first time I am looking forward to see Michelle dance. She's going for Madonna's Vogue this Saturday.

    Oh is it couple’s choice? I hope it’s a recreation of the iconic video! Tens across the board!

    She didn’t slay sadly... I thought it was flat and her outfit was terrible. I wanted her to come out in the trouser suit and really give it some. Gutted to see her bottom of the leaderboard but I voted for her all the same.

    Another stompy, placed dance by Chris. He has absolutely no flow and I don’t get that praise.

    Kelvin and Karim the best this week.

    Michelle disappointed me. I'm no fan, but I was expecting something spectacular as Vogue is one of my all time favorite songs and the MTV-awards performance is by all time favorite Madonna performance. So I was happy Michelle went with the same look. But it lacked something. It just didn't sparkle. I wouldn't mind her leaving the show.

    Chris was my least favorite though. I think he is the worst dancer of the ones that are left now.

    Kelvin was my favorite this week, but Karim was brilliant as usual.
