Strictly Ballroom Queen Erin Boag Reveals Backstage Gossip | Celebrity News | Showbiz and television

None of the judges have been told who will replace Craig Revel Horwood on tonight’s Strictly after he tested positive for Covid. They found out when it was announced with everyone. All the dancers were calling the bosses “upstairs” during my time on Strictly. Nobody knows what’s going on in “the gods” – they like to be in control! But while Cynthia Erivo isn’t exactly a household name, she’s an award-winning musical star, so she should have a lot to say about Musicals Week. Let’s see how she does!

At this point in the competition, it will start to feel like a marathon for the remaining celebrities.

They’ll need big performances and half the battle is picking a popular song.

Last week’s show was the best I’ve seen. Rhys Stephenson scored a perfect 40 and Rose Ayling-Ellis gave one of Strictly’s most memorable performances with her stunning – and partially silent – ​​couple choice.

Tonight’s fast pace means a change of pace. She may be a crowd favorite, but she needs a clean, fast routine.

The choice of the couple of Tilly Ramsay for Matilda’s Revolting Children requires musicality and imagination.

AJ Odudu’s paso doble put her at the bottom of the rankings, so she should come back strong tonight with her waltz on Edelweiss by The Sound of Music.

Dan Walker’s ballroom had excellent floor work in its American Smooth, but lumpy, elevators. He needs swivel feet for his Charleston.

Rhys Stephenson deserved top marks last week, and this week’s jive should be another fabulous dance for him.

He needs a better leaderboard score to avoid the dance because he’s not the viewers’ favorite.

John Whaite needs to improve his posture and open his diaphragm more for his Viennese waltz to Mary Poppins’ Chim Chim Cher-ee.

This week, Tom Fletcher has a couple’s pick for Les Mis’ emotional On My Own. It should have the audience standing by the end.
