closing in again
- Feb 2, 2005
I wasn't completely convinced by the little that I saw of Oti judging on that Cowell dancing show, but she will surely be fabulous by comparison to the rest of the DOI panel and presentation.
In a similar vein, I have to say I grew to like Anton as a judge. Much better than he was as a pro. I wouldn't be at all mad if he gets a permanent spot.
Yeah, I was expecting him to try and take the place of Bruno by imitating him a bit and being OTT and a bit try-hard, but he was actually a good judge.In a similar vein, I have to say I grew to like Anton as a judge.

Did they not used to bring back former contestants for these specials? I feel like I'd much prefer that. I didn't really care for this episode.
Yes. It was like a week one of typical SCD but all with people you’d expect to be quite bad, except for Anne-Marie. Could have had a token boy band member or someone with some kind of experience of learning choreography.Personally as I watch this show for the DANCING I'd prefer if they got people who have had training experience before, eg: former contestants. The two Christmas specials with Alesha, Rachel Stevens, Gethin, Darren Gough, etc had INCREDIBLE DANCING in them as all of them had reached at least the semi-finals. They even allowed Kelly Brook to bow out gracefully after her premature exit!
Yesterday's episode was just a crappy week 3 with only a handful of contestants.
Anne Marie feels far too ‘big’ for SCD, which potentially says a lot about its current approach to casting.Some of the earlier christmas specials were celebrities who couldn't commit to a full series, who then could a few years later (Simon Webbe being one), so I'm expecting one of this lot soon. Anne-marie seems unlikely and Moira looks like she'd blow over in a gust of wind so I'd expect Adrian Chiles from this lot.
