Wouldn't mind seeing Ray do this one on Sunday night (skip to 3.05)

I liked the Spanish one in his first series too.

I taped Daybreak and Lorraine - FF all the way through Daybreak and they didn't appear

They were on Lorraine however

I've just looked at Lorraine's twitter and she's tweeted:

Looking at Ray's winning year I do wonder how Hayley achieved a 10 for some of her routines.

This one of Rays deserved top marks I think?

Wouldn't mind if he did this one or the rock around the clock one. Neither got top marks though, I'm wondering if that will effect their decision?

That was my favourite the year he won and it's probably still my favourite now. Superb.

I also loved the Rock Around The Clock and Mmmbop routines. Scratch that. I love them all!

I'd like either Rock Around The Clock or the Flamenco from this year.

Ray got 6.0 x 3 plus a 5.5 from Jason. Jason didn't give Ray a full 6.0 for RATC because he said the overhead lift wasn't high enough. So if Ray could amend that to please Jason, there's no reason why it shouldn't get a perfect score.

I'll be too nervous to watch it live on Sunday. I'm going to tape it and follow the live thread on here. In 2009 I think we all expected Ray to win over Donal and Jess, but this time it's far more nerve wracking and unpredictable. For the first time he's up against the popularity vote and the personality vote. It was that kind of vote that got Coleen to the semi final over stronger competitors.

Hopefully he'll get a huge rebound from last week

I know what you mean, but I'm not going to let the prospect of him not winning on the vote, spoil my enjoyment of watching his routines. Sounds a bit defeatist I know but I'm confident that he will put in A1 performances as always, and for me thats the main thing - do what he does best and let us all enjoy the performances. Everyone knows that its a popularity contest more than anything else, and as much as Ray would love to win, and may be disappointed on the night, I think ovrall as long as he knows hes shown the BP his best (and most know that he was the best) that should be enough. I'm seeing him winning as just the icing on the cake, but we'll always have his performances on youtube to go back to...and I doubt I'd ever have the urge to rewatch any of the other contestants performances.

When I compare that routine which didn't achieve a maximum score with others that did I'm bewildered.

I haven't got functional ovaries anymore, so what I'm going to say next is pure objectivity.

I noticed something (during my many watches of Bailamos - purely for critique reasons, you understand ) that at about 2.5 mins in when Maria comes out of that spinny lift thingy they do she seems to tip backwards a bit far. I've no clue if she's meant to do it, but the camera angle's a bit off, but it seems like Ray has to go a tiny bit further to get her standing up. If I'm right, that might be why he didn't get full marks, because it would have been obvious from the judges' angle. Bloody stunning routine, though, and I'd love to see it again in the final.

I think the main reason I enjoy Ray's performances though is that he's so 'in the zone'. When he finishes a routine, he takes a minute or two to get back to normal - it was really evident after Bailamos, and really evident after his Bolero. He proper throws himself into whatever he's skating, and I'd rather see that than any number of faux showbizzy grins from anyone.

I could be completely wrong, but my impression is that so many Hayley fans are more interested in Hayley beating Beth, and Beth fans more interested in Beth beating Hayley than Ray winning it overall. I think thats why Ray was in the bottom two last week.. the public believed it to be a fight between Hayley and Beth and their fans desperately voting to keep them in. I'm hoping that we don't see a repeat on Sunday, with Ray not even getting to the final two It depends if the public are effected enough by last weeks result, or if they still believe Ray will get through and its Hayley and Beth who are in danger and need the votes more.

I'm wondering if they will chose their routine based on the marks given to them by the judges? If they do, its likely to be Nothings gonnas stop us now. As much as I loved the routine and think they deserved top marks for it, I think I'd prefer to see Bailamos or Rock around the Clock...those have a bit more wow factor I think, for the final. Bailamos deserved top marks imo, especially when you compare it to other performances that have got 5.5's..it was a definite stand-out performance and just amazing. The routine, the skating, the performance, the dancing and rhythm...Ray even managed to do those jumps (and land them) while still producing his Spanish poses. Unbelievable!

Andi has just tweeted Ray to ask if he is doing the Black Eyed Peas routine and Ray has replied "No something much better!" Off topic but I am very disappointed Andi has not been asked to compeer the tout. It was quite flat with T n D competing! Great skaters but not trained presenters and little personality in that role IMO!

You could be right - unless their fans know Ray is likely to win, but want to get their favourite to at least do Bolero and be runner up?

Then there's the added factor of Dan's fans voting for Hayley because of him, plus the 'protest voters' voting for Beth.

The bookies still think it will be Ray:

http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/d...-quinn-3214176

But I think most of those bets will have been placed before last week, so I don't want to feel too confidant - though a rebound vote is very likely

Interesting

Personally I'd like either the Flamenco or Rock Around The Clock.

I agree Andi Peters is a great host. T & D came across as quite wooden when presenting the tour

I remember being annoyed on the tour 2010. Jayne said to Hayley something like 'Everyone has come to see Jai Ho' and I thought 'I haven't' (I'd gone to see Ray).
