    Wonderful, moving dance; my highlight of the current series. I'm sorry to see you eliminated. I've been rooting for you, and I've loved watching you dance. You inspire me. And s*** on the haters.

      OhHiItsJustMyLilTablet fun fact actually ‘bro’, she started youtube from her boyfriend Jake Mitchell when they met on holiday. Her fame started from him. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing, I never saw Joe Sugg do this, or any of the contestants from this year do it. I couldn’t care less what’s she’s built, got nothing to do with what I just said, it’s the fact that she’s abusing it for strictly, which is just embarrassing and childish. Shows how full of her herself she is. Yeah I get social media is a big thing, but she took it too far just for votes, plus taking it too far when she was vlogged and complained about getting home late when someone took their own life by jumping in front of a train. Even after that she thought it would be forgotten. Oh lord, it was more than just reminding😭😭😂

      @Lwah Bunn bro that's called using social media like a normal 21st century teenager 😂😂😂😂 it's not manipulation, it's using your platform. A platform she built with HER hard work with people who support her 🤷‍♀️ Like it's cool if you don't but you're literally spreading hate for no reason, she's 19 obviously she's not perfect but imo reminding her fans to vote isn't a bad thing lmao

      OhHiItsJustMyLilTablet because she’s a social media star she thinks its ok to go live after her dances and manipulate and beg her viewers to vote for her, she even dragged in friends into. Just post after post of sympathy

  • Ballroom_Danny
    Ballroom_Danny 5 months ago

    I was actually underwhelmed by this dance. Contemporary is about extremely long and clean lines, breathing and expressing through each and every moment, and seamless transition between one move to the next one. For me, the partnership between the two of them wasn't strong enough, her lines were not clean, pretty abrupt, she didn't straightened her legs and her arms to the maximum, her feet weren't pointed and the transitions between the steps could have been smoother. It just wasn't her dance, her lines weren't that beautiful and expressive as it should have been. She has great musicality but she needs to work on her technicality. A 6.

    it kind of annoys me that youtubers on strictly is becoming a thing. she’s probably going to win purely because a bunch of ten year old robots who think she’s a goddess force their parents to vote for her.

    Her best dance yet, she hit some really nice lines. Still a bit wobbly, AJ had to hold her so she didn't fall coming out of that lift over his shoulder. I know she was emotional and did it for her nan which was really cute but I still don't feel that emotion transferred in the dance.

    I do think it was a bit static at point, but I can tell just how much of an emotional connection she had to this dance. Her lifts were stunning and effortless. She is quickly becoming one of my favorites. (8)

    Wow some of the hate on here and other social media outlets absolutely disgusting. And shockingly a lot from grown adults, vile! As a ‘grown adult’ myself I have nothing but praise for saffron, and dedicating a dance to her grandparents that so many of us wish we could still do, how does that deserve so much hate? As a country suffering with so much mental health issues how disgusting it is that most of that is caused by online trolling! Just stop. If you don’t like simply say you don’t like and move on, is that really so hard? Actually in fact if you don’t like it say nothing because it doesn’t concern you. All this criticism and having to have an opinion, sometimes it’s nicer to say nothing. I don’t see anything wrong with this dance 🤷🏼‍♀️

    I loved this dance...and as a dancer myself its all about letting loose and letting your body tell the story as well as your emotion and i have been a fan of Saffron for years but it seems to me that she's been looking a little stiff :( and exspecially in contempoary your arms and legs should flow and i think shes so talented she just needs to let loose a little more :) ps: Love her nan and grandad XX

      It looks to fake and staged. It's too much acting and not enough real life. If you are going to do something as intimate as dancing you need some sort of chemistry
