Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Kimberley Walsh and Pascha dance to Domino
After a confidence-boosting visit from fellow Girls Aloud member Nicola Roberts, Kimberley Walsh hit the Strictly Come Dancing floor for the first time tonight. She and partner Pasha Kovalev were dancing to the Jessie J hit Domino.They’re certainly one of the sexier couples on Strictly this year, and with Kimberley’s background performing with Girls Aloud, you would think that she would have a distinct advantage in the dancing stakes. I’m not saying that Kimberley’s dancing was bad, but it was rather rudimentary from where I was looking. In fact, while the judges generally praised Kimberley and Pasha, they did point out a few areas where she could improve, especially in her posture and tightening up her core.
What the judges said
- Len Goodman: I’m gonna called you Nimble Kimble. You can’t win Strictly on week one, but you can make a fantastic impression, and that’s what you just did.
- Bruno Tonioli: You have to push more through the leg to get it even straighter. I loved it.
- Craig Revel Horwood: There finally is some dance talent. Self-assured, confident, great rhythm and great timing.
How do you think Kimberley Walsh did on her first Strictly appearance?
