Strictly Come Dancing 2016 Finalists – Danny and Oti

Time for the final part in my three part series where I take a look at the three couples who will be participating in next weekend’s final and their Strictly journey so far. I’m running this series in the order they qualified for the final so we’re rounding things off with Danny and Oti

Best Dance

Danny and Oti are the only couple to have received a maximum from the judges this series and they’ve done it twice! The first time was back in Week 9 in Blackpool for their Charleston (10,10,10,10)

They also did it again the week after in week 10 for their Samba (10,10,10,10) and became the first couple in Strictly history to get a 40 for a Samba. They have selected this as their favourite dance for during the final

Worst Dance

We have to go back to week 6 for Danny and Oti’s lowest score. They scored 30 points for their Foxtrot (7,8,7,8)

Average Score

Danny and Oti have scored a total of 470 points from the judges across 13 routines which makes for an impressive average of 36.2, the highest of the three finalists and one point higher than their next closest rivals.

Number Of Times In The Dance Off

Danny and Oti have survived one Dance Off during last weekend’s semi final following their Salsa and American Smooth. They opted to perform the American Smooth in the Dance Off beating Claudia and AJ for a place in the final.

Odds Of Winning

At the time of writing Danny and Oti are 8/11 favourites to lift the glitterball with Coral. If you fancy a flutter Coral will give new customers £20 in free bets when you stake £5 on Strictly or any other market.

Can they do it? As I said in my preview of Louise and Kevin if you had asked me before last weekend I would have said that they were primed to take the glitterball without too much effort. But after ending up in the Dance Off it means Louise and Kevin must have outpolled them with the public last weekend and if I’ve got my maths right so must have Ore and Joanne so last weekend they were outpolled by both of the other finalists!

That said they’ve won the majority of polls I’ve run this series but haven’t done so as commandingly as last series’ winners Jay and Aliona and there’s been far more of a mix of poll winners this series with all the Semi Finalists winning at least one poll here this series. They are leading the current poll asking who you want to win with 41% of you picking them.

They are also winning a recent YouGov poll which asked who people were voting for in the final but by a much narrower margin. The results of that poll are:

Danny and Oti – 23%
Louise and Kevin – 22%
Ore and Joanne – 19%
Undecided – 35%

(source YouGov)

All this means it is likely the undecideds who will decide this final and a lot will depend on tomorrow’s final performances with any of the three finalists potentially taking the glitterball depending on their performances in the final and how many undecided floating voters they get to vote for them. It could all be decided in the show dances though and in my opinion Danny and Oti have the best music for a show dance that Oti should be able to choreograph something memorable and spectacular to which will wow the audience.

What do you think of Danny and Oti? Are you supporting them? Do you think they can win? Let me know in the comments section or over on Facebook or Twitter. It’s the final week of the Strictly Spoiler competition and your last chance to get involved in the discussion and win a prize. There’s a £20 Amazon voucher up for grabs and you could also win a Kindle Fire Tablet in the final monthly draw.

Strictly Come Dancing 2016 Finalists – Louise and Kevin

Time for the second part in my three part series where I take a look at the three couples who will be participating in next weekend’s final and their Strictly journey so far. I’m running this series in the order they qualified for the final so next of the list is Louise and Kevin

Best Dance

Louise and Kevin have been one point off a maximum on two occasions. The first was back in week 7 for their Argentine Tango. This scored 39 (9,10,10,10) and is the dance they have selected for their favourite dance

Louise and Kevin also scored 39 in week 10 for their Waltz (9,10,10,10)

Worst Dance

We’re all the way back to Weeks one and three for their worst routines. Their Jive from week 1 scored just(!) 31 points from the judges (8,7,8,8). What were they thinking?

The also dropped to the terribly low score of 31 in week three for their Cha Cha (7,8,8,8)

Average Score

Louise and Kevin have amassed a total score of 458 points from 13 routines making for an average score of 35.2. Despite having the best worst dances of the three finalists in terms of judges scores they have the 2nd highest average of the three finalists.

Number Of Times In The Dance Off

Louise and Kevin are the only couple this series to have never faced a Dance Off. Well actually technically that isn’t true because Melvin and Janette didn’t either. Ok we’ll just say that Louise and Kevin have never been in the bottom two after judges scores and public vote were combined.

It’s worth mentioning that Kevin has reached four finals out of four series and in three of those years has never faced a dance off and across his 4 years on Strictly he has only ever faced two dance offs winning them both

Odds Of Winning

At the time of writing Louise and Kevin are 6/4 second favourites to lift the glitterball with Coral. If you fancy a flutter Coral will give new customers £20 in free bets when you stake £5 on Strictly or any other market.

Can they do it? If you’d asked me that last week I’d have probably said no. Danny and Oti appeared to have too much support to be caught but after the semi final I honestly do not know and I personally think it could be anyone’s final depending on how they perform in the final.

We do know that to be saved from the Semi Final Dance Off that Louise and Kevin must have got more public votes last week than Danny and Oti and Claudia and AJ. Whether that was down to tactical voting from some people to try and get their favourites into the final or is a genuine representation of the support Louise and Kevin have I couldn’t possibly say.

In the current poll on this site 24% of the over 12000 people who have voted want Louise and Kevin to win. They’re lagging some 2000 votes behind Danny and Oti but then my poll at the weekend was predicting a Louise Vs Ore Dance Off so it clearly isn’t fully representative of the voting patterns of viewers.

With a strong final it wouldn’t be too hard to see Louise and Kevin take the glitterball and if anyone is going to stop Danny and Oti you would really expect it to be them but who knows. As I said I think this final is a lot wider open than the odds from the bookies and my site polls would suggest and certainly a lot wider open than last years final was during which all Jay and Aliona had to do was turn up and they would have won the glitterball!
