The highly inaccurate guide to Strictly 2020, Week 9: The Final!

Yes, we've reached the final!

Group dance
Today's superpower: summoning dancers in a futuristic club. And once you've got enough dancers, you can unleash a special move and summon the Strictly finalists!

HRVY and Janette: Judges' Pick: Jive to Faith by Stevie Wonder featuring Ariana Grande
And we're still in Club Strictly, bringing the jive!

Jamie and Karen: Judges' Pick: Charleston to Zero To Hero from Hercules
How they partied in ancient Greece! Disney's got nothing on Strictly 😁

Bill and Oti: Judges' Pick: Quickstep to Talk To The Animals by Bobby Darin
Professor Bill explains how to talk to animals through interpretative dance.

Maisie and Gorka: Judges' Pick: Samba to Samba (Conga) by Gloria Estefan
We can also weaponise hips, with added pink power!

HRVY and Janette: Showdance: Boogie Wonderland by Brittany Murphy
Boogie woogie at the HRVY festival! And wow, those spins and flips.

Jamie and Karen: Showdance: I'm Still Standing by Elton John (Taron Egerton version)
Not how I expected it to go from the intro, but still impressive.

Bill and Oti: Showdance: The Show Must Go On by Queen
Wow. A very moody dance with a little of everything: magic tricks, spins, spectacular lifts, some of their Paso Doble - and was that a shout-out to Lordi at the end with the guitar pyrotechnics? And the first 30 of the evening to boot!

Maisie and Gorka: Showdance: We Need A Little Christmas by Idina Menzel
A Christmas celebration at Strictly, fit for a giant!

HRVY and Janette: Favourite dance: American Smooth to One (Singular Sensation) from A Chorus Line
Just as classy and sparkly as it was the first time around - with a well-aimed flung hat that got swiped by Motsi!

Jamie and Karen: Favourite dance: Couple's Choice: Street/Commercial to Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) by C+C Music Factory
Unleash the Strictly DDR contest!

Bill and Oti: Favourite dance: Couple's Choice: Street/Commercial to Rapper's Delight by The Sugarhill Gang
The commuters are back, to seal deals through a dance-off.

Maisie and Gorka: Favourite dance: Quickstep to When You're Smiling by Andy Williams
We're still arguing over who gets the park bench 😅

Bonus dance: Nicola and Katia: Feeling Good by Nina Simone
That's a very moody and argumentative-looking dance. It's a shame they had to drop out due to Covid - I think they would have gone far.

Interlude: Time for Change by Robbie Williams
You can tell it's Christmas themed because it's snowing and all the dancers are wearing red 😅

Group dance
How to celebrate Christmas, Strictly-style! Includes a tree, flags, giant donuts, a bicycle, and a cat up a tree.

And the winners - well, you'll have to watch it yourself and see 😋

Bonus quotes
Craig: "I've decided to be positive. I know you might not recognise this new me..."
Craig: "Nine!" *boos*
Tess: "You are never getting your hat back off Motsi"
