SCD 5: The Girls Take To The Floor

Written by TVSA Team from the blog Strictly Come Dancing 5 on 10 Oct 2008
Favourite this post



The 2nd non-elimination episode of Strictly Come Dancing 5 aired last night and it was the turn of the five female celebs to strut their stuff on the dancefloor.

The girls were focussed, dressed to kill and delivered renditions of the Cha Cha Cha with varying degrees of success.

This non-elimination episode follows last week’s first episode of the fifth season, which saw the male celeb couples performing solo waltzes (for judges’ scoring) and the ladies a group Salsa.

Last night the ladies were out to impress with the cheeky, fun style of the Cha Cha Cha, characterised by plenty of slinky hip and leg action.

Voting lines for viewers opened as the show concluded. The first elimination, however, will only happen next week – based on judges’ scores and public voting since the series started.

The couple with “a combined waistline measuring 13cm”, according to host Ian von Memerty, Hlubi Mboya and Khutso Khunou, got the party started with an impressive routine choreographed to Jennifer Lopez’s “Let’s Get Loud”.

Judges agreed that she would benefit from paying special attention to her legs and feet in rehearsals. Dave Campbell thought it was “awesome”, but missed the finer details experienced dancers would have included.

Tessa van Duuren was up next and delivered the evening’s star performance, scoring the high 30 out of a possible 40. The leggy brunette was dressed in a spangled red number.

Lillian Phororo commended her wonderful posture. Salome Sechele thought she made this dance look easy and Tyrone Watkins went as far as saying that this is the couple to beat in the competition.

Tessa likened the dance discipline to her showjumping training, where posture and timing form the basis of the sport.

Seasoned performer and internationally acclaimed vocalist, Judith Sephuma, got the night’s lowest score, based on her lack of attention to technical detail.

Lilian noted that “her weight is almost always too far back” and suggested serious work on the feet. A redeeming factor was Sephuma’s star quality that, according to Campbell, “lights up the dance floor”.

Radio jock Anele Mdoda didn’t disappoint with a well-rehearsed, often humorous number, which left the audience begging for more.

Anele jokingly described herself as a “goldfish” when it comes to the sequences - she forgets them as soon as she’s done them.

When the applause had died down and the judges finally got the chance to have their say, it was a choir of “Hot! Hot! Hot!”, “Well done” and “Great look!”

Anele’s focus for the week to come should be on her feet, according to Dave "The Human Skeleton" Watkins.

Schmodel Cindy Nell entered the dancefloor on a mission to “shatter the myth that beauty queens can’t dance” in a feathery black and gold get-up.

Dave thought that she was good but should stop acting like a dancer and start performing like one. Lilian thought her performance was technically poor, and her bad timing (and not following the music) is ominous for episodes to come.

All agreed that she does indeed have potential and Tyrone Watkins commented on her “awesome feet” which were “spot on”.

The judges’ scores for the female celebrity couples were as follows:

Tessa van Duuren and Grant Esterhuizen: 30
Anele Mdoda and Brandon Eilers Le Riche: 26
Hlubi Mboya and Khutso Khunou: 23
Cindy Nell and Jonathan Broadway: 21
Judith Sephuma and Eksteen Traut: 20

After the break it was time for the male celebs in a group Mambo – a routine that saw (a much improved) Shugasmakx dancing himself out from right under his glasses.

The adjudicators agreed that Rob van Vuuren was the most promising dancer, and Adil More unfortunately still the one that is not in the competition with his heart and soul.

A special guest appearance was made by the winner of season four of Strictly Come Dancing, Emmanuel Castis, performing the first single from his soon-to-be-released solo album, “South of Nowhere”.

By the sounds of things, he should have stuck to his day job.

Next week, in the first episode with a couple elimination, couples will be performing either a Rumba or a Quickstep - or possibly even a "Very Quick Step", according to Anele.

Emmanuel Castis, performing the first single from his soon-to-be-released solo album, “South of Nowhere”.  - It should be "Going Nowhere" because he ain't going nowhere with that horrible voice.

By the sounds of things, he should have stuck to his day job.

Lol, I was embarrassed listening to him! He really is not a singer. 

Loved the show since I missed it last week. The judges all said Mary and Tokkie were the best, but in a group dance like that, I really can't tell who's being good. 

I love Anele, especially her quickstep comment. And those dresses really make her look big, she doesn't look half as big in rehearsals

10 Oct 2008 01:52

I hope the bloggers are happy Sandy mentioned TVSA yesterday, we should be in our best behaviour from now on..
No dissing, No nasty comments..LOL

@Cande:I'm not sold on her dancing really, but I love her personality. Oh, and apparently she has rythm, i've never understood what that means.

10 Oct 2008 02:07

Tessa is my fave...Anele has got my vote for spunk and attitude... Adil bought Judith another week on SCD, he can seriously get off my screen because he doesn't seem to be taking this serious enuff... shame! hopefully dj fresh will be on next season and show him how to take this serious

Segololo
10 Oct 2008 02:10

TVSA was mentioned too late in the show... it should be mentioned in the first hour. most ppl don't stay up that late... as soon as the dances are done, they don't really care much who leaves therefore don't watch the second show.

Cande
10 Oct 2008 02:13

I also don't get the whole Anele hype, to me she has a great personality, but on the dance floor something is missing. 

My winner is Tessa, she can dance and she has already learnt so much, I wishe her luck.

I hope the bloggers are happy Sandy mentioned TVSA yesterday, we should be in our best behaviour from now on..
Cande, u know bloggers like to whine and complain, I won't be suprised if one says: "Tashi, why did Sandy menmion TVSA while she was dancing and swaying her hips, coz it seemed like she wasn't serious".........LOL

Hayi cha, Judith I am not feeling you on the dance floor. When she was swinging her hips I thought Carino must be ROFLHAO by now.

My exit list:

Adil voted off next week
Shuggasmacks the following week, his attitude and motto mouth bothers me
Judith the following week, should the above two suck but I still think she will go first.

My winner- Rob “Twaakie”. Mary deserves to win after she had to put up with Baby Jake and Mark Williams. She must have thought umama wase next door hated her.

Yhooo hai eh eh. i am pissed at myself for missing most of the 1st part (thanks to Scandal & Gen). The only thing jaw-dropping was EMMANUEL's horrible TALKING. Gosh, even the band couldn't save him! Poor Nonhlanhla tried to give the song some ooomph but that guy's voice just refused to sound like he was singing. can u imagine him at a live gig??? Yho!

Judith looked TERRIBLE in whatever it is she was wearing. Loved Anele!!

Eish, i ddnt catch the TVSA mention, simply becoz i switched off after the final dance and i thought the show was over, they need to mention it on the first half, y roomate was bragging ngaleya 3 second advert yeVirgin Active (he works for VA) i kept on saying nathi (tvsa) we are partners but i had nothing to show for it.

Emmanuel, i wanted that SCD floor to open and swallow him.

also don't get the whole Anele hype, to me she has a great personality, but on the dance floor something is missing. > I echo your sentiments Nonny. at some stage she made a move which i've seen before eclub, some kwaito move, and i thought they were doing chacha,hayikhona. Most of the dancers lacked energy, Hlubi, hayi i dont know. Mme Sephuma, tje kannete, Modimo needs to intervene.

Tessa: You rocked the floor my gal!!!!!

By the sounds of things, he should have stuck to his day job.

Interesting Tox, just a quote from the back cover text:

"back into the country’s history, you’ll see that it always was that way. Ours is a country defined by race, but there is one race that had the choice to make it that way. Heading for fifteen years into democracy, South Africa seems to be even more about race than ever. The rainbow nation sometimes seems more like a technicolour dreamcoat - after Joseph’s brothers dipped it in blood."

I find it sometimes sad that our country is defined by race. AA  & BEE seemed like a good concept, but the way it's being abused now is sad. I have a white friend and she is struggling to the job she wants coz everywhere she applies she does not fit in2 the AA/BEE criteria of employment.

Was extremely disappointed at Hlubi  last nyt, thot she'll rock the dance floor but she was a bit stiff for cha cha moves last nyt.  BTW, what's up with her opening her mouth lyk that? I know you can't dance with ur mouth shut but that's too extreme man, Haikhona!

The move that  Anele gooi everytime she goes on stage is just so BC. I mean even pre-scholars are no longer doing that. 

Hate Adil's attitude, don't know if it's ignorance or plain arrogance.

Cindy looked tired on the dance floor, there was no energy whatsoever. Cindy darling, drink Red Bull before the show it will give you wings.
