    Haha haha. Sucks to all you Ore and Clifton haters!

    • Plantagenista

      Hates rather a strong word…difficult to hate people you don’t know. No..it’s the injustice of it all that hurts.

  • The Hedge

    No question – best dancer won. Congratulations Ore!!!!!

  • Fran

    What a final. Hats off to them all. What an experience to remember. Sone amazing dancing tonight. Well done Ore and Joanne. I think any one of them could have been the winner. I couldn’t decide

  • disqus_cfsmdo9Ds3

    woohoo! Love Ore!

  • Catherine May

    Absolutely delighted with this result 🙂

  • The Hedge

    I still can’t believe how much hatred the poor guy got. Thankfully sometimes there is justice in the world

  • Vhari

    Somehow the result didn’t surprise me…just wish I’d known how many tears were going to be shed this series so I could have got shares in kleenex…reckon could have been rolling in it solely thanks to Ore…

  • Anna Pickett

    I am so annoyed and outraged

  • Plantagenista

    Nope the best dancer didn’t win but they rarely do in these types of show. Not happy but not surprised either.

    This is it. The Strictly Final. As it happens, also my Strictly Final. These have been 7 great years. Discovered the show in the semi’s with BBC’s Chris Hollins. Surprised he went on to win, but after that I truly enjoyed watching nearly every Saturday and I applauded several undisputed winners: Kara, Harry, Jay and Danny. Now the book is closed. The BBC made sure the show is no longer worth the emotional involvement, no longer worth watching. The final congratulations are to Danny and Oti.

    • Plantagenista

      My thoughts exactly John though I’ve watched it religiously since 2004. Believing this to be a genuine dance competition, I gave up many a Saturday evening and dedicated time and money to participate in the voting and the blogs in, what now turns out to be, just a popularity contest! Since Bruce Forsyth left I felt that the show was going down hill but I stayed faithful thinking that it was just a blip. But now, after this disastrous result where the true winners of SCD, Danny and Oti, were denied the title, I too feel this show is no longer worth the emotional involvement and no longer worth watching with as much dedication as I did before. I may dip in and out on occasion but frankly now with Len Goodman also gone I’m afraid it’ll just get worse.

    “Loving” the “the best dancer lost” moaning…

    …on the night – Danny made a mistake, Ore didn’t. Simple as that!

  • Ore won because he pulled off 3 cracking dances. Danny might have won if he had done the same. But he didn’t. It’s not about the best dancer overall , it’s who performed on the night. It’s not injustice, it’s just what happened. Sometimes the better football team loses when they play badly. It is because we are human. I had no idea before the show who would win or who I wanted to win but even by the end of the first dance, Ore was ahead and his show dance was stunning, Danny’s was great too but over the three dances , Ore wa better on the night. I felt Louise only really shone in her last dance.

    Ores was not a shock result if you watched the final as a neutral. If you wee very pro Danny you may feel gutted but please don’t blame it on anyone else that he didn’t win as he had it in his power to win.

    • Plantagenista

      Okay even if Ore was judged the better performer on the night, in my opinion, the whole premise of this show is wrong. All the couples work SO unbelievably hard for three or four months and then they lose just based on their final 3 dances? It’s ridiculous. Taking your example of a football team losing…yes the better team may lose one or more of their matches, but because it’s an accumulation of points system, the amount of wins they get are taken into final account. Therefore, because Danny and Oti have been CONSISTENTLY brilliant throughout the show, for me, they have accumulated more points and therefore, in my eyes, they’re the real winners. If you ask who then would be second I’d say Claudia and AJ as they were also cheated out of a rightful place in the final. Who would be third? Well that’s a tough one between Louise and Kevin and Ore and Joanne…don’t know…am I bothered? No.

      • There are no rules for how the public should vote. They vote for who they want to win. The dancer they see before them. ITa a knockout competition not a league. If it were the latter , then people with dance experience would win every time as they would always have more points from the start.

        I don’t agree about Claudia. Technically she was good but the emotional connection of the performance was not there for me. She wanted to do them right but I felt they were like gymnastic performances rather than dances. I don’t see they were cheated out of a place , people just didn’t vote for her. And had she won the dance off, Danny would have been out.. people have a different opinion to yours.

        • Plantagenista

          Firstly I know there’s no rules for a public vote – I never said there should be. What I think is that the BBC should publish the votes as is done in other programmes if they’ve got nothing to hide. Thirdly, I accept it’s a knock out popularity contest, not a true dance competition which would have a league table element to it. Fourthly, Claudia should not have been up against Danny in the semi-final anyway so that’s a moot point. Finally, OF COURSE I don’t expect everyone to agree with me. That’s why we have discussion blogs and everyone has a right to their own opinion as I do. That’s called democracy.

    As much as I like Ore and am happy that he won, Danny’s performances from this series are what I will remember.

    • Plantagenista

      I totally agree…Danny and Oti’s performances are the only ones I replay over and over again. Ore’s triumph will be short-lived and his victory retired into the annals of Strictly history. But Danny and Oti made history and will be remembered each time there’s a samba or a show dance performed to name just two of their wonderful dances. Long may they reign!!

    I don’t understand why people get so wound up by who wins and who loses! We’ve had weeks of great entertainment and, to be honest, on the night it could have gone to any of them. The public, in the end, voted for Ore and Joanne, so well done to them. I don’t remember there being this much fuss when Darren Gough won and he certainly wasn’t the best dancer in his series! Let’s just enjoy the show for what it is, Saturday night entertainment.
