Sabra and Neil are up for the paso doble, choreographed by Tony Meredith. Sabra talks about how Neil walked in with the matador attitude. "It's all attitude. That's all Neil has," she says during rehearsal. Burn! Neil talks about the need to be manly for this dance. Too bad for him, then, that he didn't draw a card for more of a pretty-boy routine. At one point during rehearsal, Neil spins and clocks Tony in the face, and Tony dramatically collapses to the floor. Neil interviews deadpan that he had to do something about Tony trying to "outman" him.
"Espana Cani" by Juan and Gennaro. I have no idea if this is any good; I'd never even heard of the paso doble before I started watching this show. I do know that it doesn't really excite me. The cool bit does come at the end, though, with the dance's climax of Sabra flipping up into a ring around Neil's head (she's holding onto the heels of her shoes), and then he drops her so she slides down his body (still in a ring) to the floor. Nigel is amazed, calling it "absolutely stunning" and says if anyone had asked him if Neil or Sabra had a chance to win the competition, he wouldn't have been sure. I can see that being the case with Neil, but he wasn't sure that one of the dancers whom the judges have been unanimous in praising, week in, week out, could win?
… Debbie says she was sure she didn't need to see the paso doble again, because they've seen it so many times already. I'm much sicker of contemporary, myself.
Danny's dancing solo to "The Fear You Won't Fall" by Joshua Radin. He pirouettes, and does a cool thing where he lifts himself up off the floor with one hand. In the words of Jimbo: "He's graceful, yet masculine. So it's okay for me to like this!"
Speaking of things it's okay for me to like: no show tomorrow, because football is on. Results show Monday instead, folks. Don't say you weren't warned.
Elimination predictions: Lauren and Neil.
