Strictly Come Dancing
Bill Bailey is known for his musical prowess, but he surprised us all from the get-go with his passion and hidden talent for dance. Now it’s taken him all the way to the top spot as he lifts the Glitterball trophy with Pro partner Oti Mabuse!
The pair performed three fantastic routines in the 2020 Final, including a dramatic Showdance to the Show Must Go On by Queen and a Quickstep to Talk To the Animals by Bobby Darin as their Judges’ Pick. They finished up with their own favourite from Week Four – a Street/Commercial routine to Rapper’s Delight by The Sugar Hill Gang.
All three performances dances dazzled the Judges and the audience at home, bagging them the winning title of Strictly 2020.
Their win has also created a piece of Strictly history, making Oti the first ever Pro dancer to win the competition two years in a row, and the second Pro ever to win more than once!
Bill and Oti couldn’t be more grateful for their victory, with Bill saying: “It feels surreal, it feels…
Eight fabulous weekends of Strictly down, and now there's just one more night to go. But it's not just any night, it's the one we've all been waiting for... the 2020 Grand Final!
Our four remaining couples will be dancing their socks off for the Glitterball trophy tonight, bringing their best to the Ballroom with three fantastic routines each. They'll be bringing back their favourite dance of the series, as well as a Judges' Pick and of course, a brand new spectacular Showdance.
While the Judges will be scoring each performance, the winner is 100 per cent decided by you at home, so every vote really counts. The vote will open once all four couples have performed their first routine and will remain open until Claudia announces it's closed during the show. So make sure you're on the Strictly homepage, logged in and ready to vote when the time comes to pick your winners!
Can you believe it's almost the Strictly Final of 2020 already?!
