The highly inaccurate guide to Strictly 2021, Week 1

Group dance
Pluck the golden rose and awake the frozen dancers.
That's a good cover of Vanessa's A Thousand Miles too. Oddly that's the second time I've heard that song today - the original was on the radio at Tesco's earlier.

Tom and Amy: Cha Cha Cha to September by Earth, Wind & Fire
We'll give you the day's news through interpretative dance. I wonder if they ever played Elite Beat Agents - this song was a stage in that (and surprisingly hard too as I recall).

Tilly and Nikita: Waltz to Consequences by Camila Cabello

Ugo and Oti: Samba to Iko Iko (My Bestie) by Justin Wellington ft Small Jam
Extreme samba! Watch you don't set fire to the drumsticks.

Rhys and Nancy: Viennese Waltz to End Of The Road by Boys II Men
How to pass the time with style when the bus is late.

Sara and Aljaž: Cha Cha Cha to The Boss by Diana Ross
The secret to getting the Dragon's to invest in your latest pitch: spontaneous dancing!

Dan and Nadiya: Quickstep to Everybody Needs Somebody by The Blues Brothers
Behind the scenes at BBC Breakfast!

Rose and Giovanni: Jive to Shake It Off by Taylor Swift
Shake shake shake!

Katie and Gorka: Tango to Black Hole by Griff
Wow, this was a very moody and aggressive dance.

Robert and Dianne: Cha Cha Cha to Rasputin by Boney M.
Getting meta now, with a dance competition inside a dance competition. Is the competitor number a subliminal nudge to the judges?

Greg and Karen: American Smooth to That's Life by Frank Sinatra
Stylishly old-school, complete with cane and hat!

Nina and Neil: Samba to Mi Gente by J Balvin, Willy William featuring Beyoncé
The diva has brought the samba to Strictly.

John and Johannes: Tango to Blue Monday by New Order
Symmetrical tango! Wow - and the second highest score of the night.

Judi and Graziano: American Smooth to Chain of Fools by Aretha Franklin
I said "dance", not "drink"! 😅

AJ and Kai: Jive to Gold Dust by DJ Fresh

Adam and Katya: Cha Cha Cha to Beggin' by Måneskin
A surprisingly moody dance to end the show with. The previous Cha Cha Cha's have been bouncy comedic dances, and yet here we have an almost goth version which achieved joint second place!

Bonus quotes!
Craig: *speaks* (audience boos) "...whatever!"
Robert: "Well it's famously quite awkward and tricky, and I found it quite awkward and tricky"
Tess: "Is that it Craig? Just the thumb?"
