Dance X: sorry its 2 days late, but better late than never

I may have previously been a little critical of "Dance X", but despite that I'm getting into the BBC's latest reality talent show with a twist - to find a dance group which is also able to sing. This week's theme was Rock N'Roll, old and new. The already depleted Team Bruno kicked off with a dance routine to "I Like The Way You Move" whilst Team Arlene cashed in on the revival of the film "Hairspray" with "You Can't Stop The Beat". Round 1 to Team Arlene.

The next round threw in a bit of singing: Team Bruno with "Black Velvet" and Team Arlene tackled "Can't Stop". Doing the Chili Peppers was never going to be easy, so clearly round 2 to Team Bruno.

Team Bruno's "Land of 1000 Dances" was their next number, although was a decade out of time. Team Arlene was well off-key on "Walk This Way" - the Girls Aloud version, not even the Aerosmith & Run DMC version!! I'd say that Team Bruno took this round as well, although a bit more research wouldn't have gone amiss.

Both sides managed to redeem themselves in a "dance battle" to "I Bet That You Look Good On The Dancefloor".

Must also give a mention to Duncan James, who has now given up being a solo pop star and made a very wise move into musical theatre - "Chicago" to be precise.

We expected Team Arlene to lose one of its members tonight but yet again she won the public vote, leaving an increasingly tortured Bruno to choose a bottom two. We thoroughly agreed that Claire's jacket is on a very shaky nail: she dances like someone's middle-aged auntie, and she is very much out of place in this team. But Bruno chose to save her and sacrifice Daniele, who was in the bottom two last week. At this rate Team Bruno will soon be a duo!! Although they were a bit ropey this week, we still prefer Team Arlene.
