"Strictly Come Dancing II" Eighth Round (B)
TVB finally airs the eighth round of dancing, but it is not aired on the Lifestyle Channel, not Jade.
Like I mentioned in my previous post ("Strictly Come Dancing II" Eighth Round), the TVB host was Derek Lee and the guest judge was Lau Dan.
Nancy Wu and Nathan Lee did a contemporary/jazz routine on the seventh night. On the eighth night, they did "The Chorus Line", a Broadway routine. From this Broadway routine, Nancy and Nathan received their first perfect score of ten from the judges.
As for Team MengMa, they did a marvellous Tango/Paso Doble routine. The music for the dance was fantastic, and they received an enthusiastic response from the audience. Teacher He (Hunan host) even said to Ma Ming when they were done, "You did it!" Ma Ming was very excited because he was jumping up and down. He said he was scared to death because they weren't getting it during practice. Later, Teacher He told the audience to applaud for Ma Ming; the camera showed the artistes clapping and screaming. Even though the camera did not show Nancy, you can hear her scream very loud. It is the same scream from his first dance.
Teacher Chou: "The trust between the two of you has improved and is becoming stronger and stronger. Also, I feel really touched and want to laugh because how did you (Ma Ming) finish that routine?! You're not supposed to be able to finish that! How did you finish?! Congratulations!"
Lau Dan's comment was very funny because he was explaining how Ma Ming was looking down at his feet during rehearsal. He said that, in the tango, the male is supposed to look very confident and the head is supposed to be held back. He even asked for a close-up to show what he meant. At the end of the show, Teacher Yang said that Lau Dan was the most professional guest judge they had on the show.
I can't wait to watch the ninth round because Team Success scored another perfect ten on their Argentine Tango from the judges, while Team MengMa receive 9.75 on their cha cha/jive.
