The ' Bring Back IVETA Campaign ' - Brought Iveta Back - Is Iveta The New STRICTLY QUEEN ?

Kristina has widely been regarded as the Queen of Strictly Come Dancing, and rightly so, but now that " Leggy Lithuanian Iveta Lukosiute " is back on Strictly full time, will Kristina be deposed from her throne, and her crown now worn by the lovely and sizzilingly hot Iveta?

" Blonde Iveta, 32, is currently world champion in ten styles of ballroom dancing "

http://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/view...t-on-to-show-/


What do you like about Iveta ? What don't you like ?

What is Iveta tweeting ?


" @D8Iveta '33m ago' I have some Great News! I am officially one of the new SCD season 11 Pro Dancers I am very happy and... http://fb.me/2mYroLYOa "

https://twitter.com/D8Iveta


What are Iveta's strong points and talents ? Does Iveta have any weak points?

Lets hear about the good and not so good.

I'll start with the good: Never heard of her before she was drafted to fill in for an injured Aliona, but looked up one of her dances on SYTYCD. Outfitted as a sexy policewoman, she announces she is going to "arrest" Nigel for cutting her twice before. The partial routine he lets her complete has the audience cheering and howling her chutzpah in bending over to display her ass-ets, as well as her dancing. It worked and she made finally made the top 20 (but got cut yet again).

She would have to be striking to win the world championship twice. Maks has said all dancers at that level are excellent and that the goal is to catch the judges' eyes, to do something to try to stand out. She proved she can do that.

The almost good: The above article claims she is "currently world champion in ten styles of ballroom dancing." I wondered how she could fit that in with her Strictly touring and discovered that is an apparent exaggeration:

World Ten Dance Champions:


1990 Michael Hull & Patsy Hull-Krogull Germany

2013 Not yet held. Scheduled for October, 2013.
http://bit.ly/zQAaDe

2008 and 2009 World Ten Dance Champion, fabulous as that is, does not equal Current World Ten Dance Champion. That was four and five years ago. If it was a misprint, she could have corrected it on her twitter, no?

That said, she appears to be a lovely dancer. Julianne Hough got a career boost when Kym Johnson broke her wrist falling down the temporary stairs near the beginning of the DWTS Tour and Julianne, just 18 and a company dancer for the tour, was tapped to fill in for Kym's sexy cha cha with Joey McIntyre. Producers said, "Wow!!" and immediately sought to sign Julianne as a regular. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qfjuhlnizok Derek later said they asked him to be a regular the same time they asked Julianne, but he told them he was busy working in London, so he declined at that time.

Following Julianne's Season 4 win, she and Joey reprised their cha cha on the next tour, leaving Kym virtually forgotten: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYgOvCKjvyU

Kym was likewise eclipsed on the 2008-2009 tour when she was ill and had to miss the first two shows. Aliona filled in for Kym, dancing the Viennese Waltz solo with Derek. When Kym returned for the third show--ot 37 cities, with 34 yet to go--she found that Derek asked for Aliona to continue to dance the solo with him, and did so all in but a couple of cities. It was not surprising to fans as many (if not most) preferred to see Derek dance with Aliona. Their styles matched perfectly.

The apparent lesson: Don't get injured or your replacement may eclipse you.

I've looked at Iveta's twitter and this is what it says

2 Times World Champion 5 Times US National & North American Champion. SYTYCD S8. Pro Dancer on SCD & DWTS @ Sea. Owner of Arthur Murray Manhattan 5th Av studio
So the exaggeration/misreporting seems to be coming from the tabloid article not Iveta's twitter.

I'm keen to see what Iveta can do - I'm not sure if she'll be given a contender because with 2 other new pro girls and the relatively new Karen Hauer - I'm not sure there will be enough talented celebs to share around but I'm sure she'll do her best with whomever she's given.

One thing I am curious to see is what colour hair Iveta will have next series. I think the producers told her to dye her hair to match Aliona's red/copper colour last series and now she's gone back to being blonde. There are only two dark hairded pros - Karen and the new girl Janette - there's already 3 blondes in the pro line up and with Emma and Iveta now joining there'll be 5 - that is if both of them keep their blonde shades. I think maybe one of them will be requested to change their hair colour so the line up doesn't look too blonde like Aliona was told to do when she joined the line up.

I'm glad Iveta is coming back so at least that is something to look forward to - I just hope that the new dancers are of the same calibre. Fingers crossed.

I didn't mean that the 'currently world champion in ten styles of ballroom dancing' came from her twitter, but rather that she could have mentioned a correction on twitter. It's a personal choice but I wouldn't have let that stand if it were me. Not that DailyStar ever makes any mistakes, on purpose or not.

Yes, it will be interesting to see how many female pros are allowed to be blondes.

I don't believe for one minute that the producers tell Sir Bruce, Craig or Bruno what colour to dye their hair, I think that it is even less likely that the producers would give instructions to the girls on what colour their hair should be dyed.

Hair colour for a woman is a very personal choice and they choose what they feel suits them the best, and not what a man instructs them to do.

I remember someone here on the forum mentioned that Aliona was asked to die her hair, and since outside of Strictly she always had blond hair I assumed it was true, don't know for certain though

Ah thanks for clearing that up Dancefan Yes, perhaps if Iveta was aware of the article she should have put a correction in on twitter out of respect to the current world champions.

I hope they do get at least one of the blonde pros to change their hair colour - I want to see at least 3 non blondes in the pro line up - I've nothing against blondies by the way, I just like to see a bit of diversity in hair colour

Agree. For once the BBC have given the viewers something they want, beats dumping the most popular dancers before their sell by date. Just hope Iveta lives up to the good impression she made during her brief first stint on the show last year.

It was me. Aliona wrote all about that (and posted photos) on her Facebook at the time, and asked us all what we thought. We were all complimentary, though I had some reservations, and probably some others did too.

Since then she's made some changes to her Facebook, including reducing the number of Friends, so I doubt any of that is findable at this late date. But I'll see what I can find.

Here's what I found so far:

From an Exclusive Q&A session on AlionaVilani online:

"8. What is her preferred hair colour and did she choose the raspberry colour she was styling for SCD 2010 or was it chosen for her?

"Aliona: My preferred color is light copper golden blond. However I donít mind a bit of a change sometimes. There were too many blonds on the show, professionals and celebrities, so I thought going a different color was a good idea for me, however I didnít expect Strictly to suggest to go such bright red, but I went with it and loved it for the time being

http://www.alionavilani.co.uk/fans/e...ve-qa-session/

"Heidi
Hi 
Please could you tell me how Aliona gets that colour hair, iíve brought every product in the shops as well as wholesale.
"Vikki Kelly
I would also love to know? Please, please tell me what you find out, have also tried everything including crazy colours, would really appreciate any help x

"Aliona: Over time Iíve used different shades of red, even mixed a couple of them together but all of them were LíOreal Professional Permanent Creme Color and you can find more information here:

http://www.lorealprofessionnel.co.uk/products/haircolour-products/classic-permanent-colour/majirel/majirouge

"Also you can go to any Sallyís beauty shops and you can obtain this hair color there
http://www.alionavilani.co.uk/fans/e...ve-qa-session/

Here is what I posted at the time on a messageboard: Message 10. Posted by Dancefan8001 (U14111177) Saturday, 22nd August 2009 permalink
Not really a coincidence there are so many blondes. In fact, they thought there were too many blondes, so Aliona agreed to change her haircolor to red. She just posted the photos of her new hair color on Facebook. 

[snip]

http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/strictlycomedancing/F14488480?thread=6863133


Here's two of the photos she posted on her Facebook at the time: Her most ardent fans likely kept more of them:

Don't forget that Rod said that Blondes have more fun.

Anyway, how can we tell if any of the girls are natural blondes?

I don't know if we have ever had a professional demo of one of the ballroom dances, but I would like to see Iveta and Brendan doing a foxtrot, using a lot of the Hiltons' choreography. The only slight misgivings I have about her is that I have yet to see her doing a proper ballroom dance. I hope her ballroom will not be like those abortions on DWTS.

I'll start with the good: Never heard of her before she was drafted to fill in for an injured Aliona, but looked up one of her dances on SYTYCD. Outfitted as a sexy policewoman, she announces she is going to "arrest" Nigel for cutting her twice before. The partial routine he lets her complete has the audience cheering and howling her chutzpah in bending over to display her ass-ets, as well as her dancing. It worked and she made finally made the top 20 (but got cut yet again).

She would have to be striking to win the world championship twice. Maks has said all dancers at that level are excellent and that the goal is to catch the judges' eyes, to do something to try to stand out. She proved she can do that.

The almost good: The above article claims she is "currently world champion in ten styles of ballroom dancing." I wondered how she could fit that in with her Strictly touring and discovered that is an apparent exaggeration:

Just wanted to check something I thought Ashly was Joey McIntyre's partner on dwts not kym and that kym was Joey Fatone's partner. Why was Ashly not dancing with Joey instead of kym?

What I meant was I don't want to see a ghastly parody of a ballroom dance like this:

Nicole Scherzinger & Derek Hough - Foxtrot - Week 8
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yV44QUIwrvo

but rather more like this:

Lisa and Brendan's Foxtrot - Strictly Come Dancing 2008 Round 11 - BBC One .
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0M1E4APLIUo

Dancing ability is one thing but keeping to proper form and treating the dance - and the audience - with respect is another matter.

Ashly was pregnant with her first son, and Kym had not yet been partnered with Joey Fatone. The first tour was between Seasons 3 and 4; Joey Fatone was on Season 4.

Ashly became pregnant before the Season 3 finale, and the tour was after that. Her first son was born July 27, 2007. She left the show prior to the tour and didn't return until Season 10, with Astronaut Buzz Aldrin.

Just came across Joey McIntyre's DWTS tour blog for the second tour, which was after Season 4. Haven't read all of it yet but I see he mentions Joey Fatone. It's here: http://www.people.com/people/article...044059,00.html

yes, its true, she was asked to colour her hair, the producers thought there were too many blondes on the show and asked her if she minded becoming a red head

I don't think the producers would try that on with Iveta, we already know her as a blonde, and she is a multiple world champion after all

the producers already have Terry! if you recall, Iveta had red hair when she danced with Johnny and I dont see what being a multiple world champion has to do with changing hair colour but hey ho

"Kristina has widely been regarded as the Queen of Strictly Come Dancing"

Lol, that's wishful thinking but whatever. Iveta seems alright. I think the other new female pros will garner more interest, they seem more outgoing. Either way it's good that there is some fresh blood on the show, hopefully they'll all bring something different.
