How do they actually score on 'Strictly'?
« on: 14/12/2008 00:45:41 »
Hate the programme by I'm fascinated by the scoring system.
'They' say that the judges scores count half and the audience scores count half.
Bearing in mind that the judges' contribution is an actual amount out of a total of 40 points and the voting is in thousands of votes, how can the two scores be meaningfully combined?

There must be an expert somewhere on this forum. I couldn't find an answer in a brief burst of Google.

sophie,
Last night I saw on the BBC's News24 that someone said that
the reason for these 3 people all winning together with the "equal" scores was because the ex journalist and competitor,John Sergeant had quit the Strictly Come Dancing programme.

Otherwise they'd have had 4 couples to choose from. Sounds like it was fixed from the start. That is only Rosalind's opinion though.

Never watched it, never will watch it, not the slightest bit interested in it.

Let's have "Celebrity Guillotine" where the TV audience votes for which talentless oik gets their head cut off.

It makes no sense.  Unless the judges score is added to the viewers votes.

The three in the dance off for the final has nothing do with another competitor leaving the show, more to do with two couples being joint place on the judges leader board.  Apparently, one couple would always have gone into the dance off which (apparently) isnt fair.  Not sure how they work that out, because if five million people voted to keep in the weakest of the three, they would be in the final and that would mean the two strongest dance couples would be in the dance off.
