Louis has a good dancer to compete against in Denise.

Harry had two good dances and Chelsee had one.

Matt won the highest percentage of dates of anyone on tour against Kara, Pamela and Ricky Whittle.

It would probably be a tight contest if all three were in the same tour IMO.

Lisa's got 60/60 in her home town tonight so it looks like they're pushing her to win.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same for Michael in Sheffield. At the end of the day, does it really matter what the scores are?

After seeing Michael's Samba I DARE them to justify giving it a ten, unless he makes a miraculous improvement.

Lisa won tonight, so am I right in saying that Louis has won all of the shows bar two/three or so? (not sure how many Denise won)

Well, it's nice to see some variety I suppose.

It would be nice if they could all win one, but the reality is that it just isn't going to happen.

Did they have a small sherry in the water perhaps- she is not a maximum marks standard

Doing this makes the show loose what little credibility it may have. Why give her 60/60 just because she's in her home town. Are they going to keep giving her a perfect score at other venues when she hasn't even been in the top 3 since the tour started?

They should use a different format for the tour show anyway but that would involve getting rid of the judges so keeping it the same as the series is the only way the judges still get noticed and paid. It would have been nice if they had just let one of the PRO's that choreographs produce the tour. It would have made for fresh new dances and a different format. After all, the PROs are the professional dancers that have some idea of what the celebrities would be capable of doing and many of them have more worldly experience in performing in entertainment shows. Might have seen better dance routines too.

How do you know that StigOfTheKrump? Serious question. I just thought the winner and runner-up were announced and the others were no particular order

Of the leaderboard?

Edit: Also, I was surprised at (this is difficult to word) how the audience in Liverpool, while obviously clapping, were far more behind other couples on the night. I'd expected Lisa to be very popular on the tour, with all the 'people's champion malarkey'.

Maybe it was just a case of being first on the nights though, with the crowd not warmed up yet.

She must have been in the top three if she won...

I think she's been in around fourth place on most leaderboards. Similar scores to Fern.

Going on Tuesday. Expecting a Louis win but I'll throw a vote to Denise and Dani, me-thinks

I know it's only a tour etc, but give Lisa a 60 because she's in her home town?

Well... it wouldn't be for her dancing, would it?

I think they know that Lisa is pretty popular with the audience in Manchester, and it might not go down well if they give her all twos. Tens are slightly over-generous for a hometown score, though.

I know!

Do they do it like on the show - combined with judges' and public? I have a feeling they do - but they probably should have just given her eights or something, then spoil her with a couple tens at the end.

I understand its ONLY the audience... but who knows... (they could just as easily change the rules (like they did one year)).

I think its more interesting to know if once London swings round will the same CCC or Foxtrot, danced in the same way be back to 8s and a 9 tomorrow or not.

How can something like Lisa's foxtrot be worth 3 10s when Louis lovely fusion not be worth the same or even Dani's fusion or tango which definitely are superior dances?

I think they combined the judges' scores and audience vote without telling anybody one year, then changed it back shortly after.

I doubt they're doing that now, though, as I think Lisa is popular enough in Manchester.

Almost certainly.

And I can guarantee that Michael's AS will get three tens come Sheffield (his Samba... hmm... perhaps not. )
