Strictly Come Dancing's first live show went off without much of a hitch (well, relatively speaking!) and now it's full speed ahead to the first actual elimination.


As is tradition, the judges' scores from last week and this weekend's dances will be combined with viewer votes to determine which unlucky couple will be sashaying off the dance floor this Sunday.

Before we get there, though, let's find out which songs and dances that the couples have picked to impress Shirley Ballas and her judging panel for this Saturday night's (September 29) second live show:



  • Ashley Roberts and professional partner Pasha Kovalev will dance the Cha Cha Cha to 'Boogie Wonderland' by Earth, Wind and Fire.
  • Charles Venn and professional partner Karen Clifton will dance the Quickstep to 'Sir Duke' by Stevie Wonder.
  • Danny John-Jules and professional partner Amy Dowden will dance the Cha Cha Cha to 'Beggin' by Madcon.
  • Faye Tozer and professional partner Giovanni Pernice will dance the Viennese Waltz to 'It's a Man's Man's Man's World' by Seal.
  • Graeme Swann and professional partner Oti Mabuse will dance the American Smooth to 'Try a Little Tenderness' by Otis Redding.
  • Joe Sugg and professional partner Dianne Buswell will dance the Charleston to 'Cotton Eyed Joe' by Rednex.

The celebrities and their partners will have a tall task topping last week's launch, a show that had everyone talking thanks to Kate Silverton's kiss and the infamous hair-gate.

This weekend's results show will get a star-power boost when singer-songwriter George Ezra drops in to perform his smash hit 'Shotgun' in the BBC ballroom.
