Movie Week on Strictly Come Dancing, which means amazing costumes and songs beloved by millions of viewers.
Catherine Tyldesley performed a sensual Rumba with partner Johannes Radebe, themed around A Star Is Born, with the song Shallow, sung in last year’s remake by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.
The judges and audience were wowed by their routine, with standing ovations from both in the studio.
The pair scored 32 for the number, impressive for that dance in week three of the contest, head judge Shirley pointed out.
But viewers watching from their sofas were not impressed by the professional singers’ interpretation of the emotional ballad…
Some called for backing tracks to be reintroduced, and the singers let go.
This singer is wrecking this song. Bloody hell #Strictly

Would be better if they had singers who could actually sing properly. #Strictly

I’ve been so excited for this that I’ve only just realised that we have to listen to the singers butcher the “sha-ha, sha-ha-ha-low” bits. #strictly

Some fans of the show appreciate the live singing performances, though…
Their Gotta Catch ‘Em All from Pokémon for Will Bayley and Janette Manrara’s Paso Doble routine was appreciated…
