    Ik I’m watching this again late so no one will see it but u don’t understand that she can’t move her hair because else it would make the dance worse

    Brilliant performance, tango isn’t an easy one to start with and it was difficult choreography so I think saffron was incredible!

      She was good, but not perfect , she just needs to work on her top half and be herself. My votes are for her.

    It's Jake all over again. Saffron has twice as many views as Kelvin, despite being mid table. Saffron fans, piss off and stop ruining the show. Dancers shouldn't go through because they have a big fan base.

    Joe went on Strictly last year. Got partnered with Dianne. Dianne split from her boyfriend. Joe and Dianne started going out and they’re still dating.
    Saffron is on Strictly this year. She’s been partnered with Aj. Will Aj break up with his girlfriend? Will Saffron and Aj start dating?

    People are so rude, her footwork was very good, body placement great, spacing great, she held her lines in her body very well and steady. It may look like twirling around to people who have never danced before but there was a lot of technique involved.

    Stephanie Lyszyk 17 days ago

    I don’t understand why everyone thinks this was good. She was all over the place! She moved with her shoulders. She moved with force not not controlled force. It was messy and kinda tacky. Sorry. My opinion, though! Me and my mum were surprised at the scores.

      You're not supposed to smile with the Tango, its traditionally a serious expression just like the Paso Doble

    That was a great dance for week one AJ did a good job but i would expect it to be good from a young lady. Saffron said at the launch show red carpet on Digital Spy that she danced from age 2 until 11 year old in Contemporary, Jazz , hip hop , street dance so she danced half her life and she was in a girl band that is impressive . She is only 19 year's old that is a huge accomplishment , and she is in great shape . She trains in Tia Boxing and she recently ran a marathon. Joe Sugg did not have a dance background like her and he was not a athlete and he did not have a acting background . She is 10 to 30 years younger then everyone else on the show except Karim Zeroual who is 19 years old . She has a large TheXvid following . She checks every box for an advantage to get to the final very easily which is why AJ is so happy .

    Well what fabulous staccato! Has anyone danced a Tango on week 1 before and exemplified the sharpness of its figures so well as this? I don't think so. So much attack too in the kicks and the head position in hold is just right, and love that knife-like hand parallel to AJ's back, exactly as a Tango requires! However, despite the attack, I felt her facial expressions were often too tame and she seems to faintly smile a lot (don't get me wrong its brilliant she even attempts to capture the mood on week 1). I also, despite loving the choreography, felt the section out of proper hold on the top stairs was too long and a little gratuitous. I also felt her head, despite brilliant body contact, it was almost too tight- it looked to me like she struggled in the spins. However, her look is very Lady Gaga-esque which fills me with joy and I would just like to draw attention to the wonderful step at 0.44, a great view of a wonderful speedy dip at the knees which often goes unnoticed in Tango hold. 7.
