Twists, Turns, and Tango: The Highs and Lows of “Skal vi danse”
Unforeseen Departure on the Dance Floor
The Norwegian TV show “Skal vi danse” has been delivering an engaging display of dance moves this autumn season. Every episode opens up a new genre of dance, allowing the participants to flex their creative muscles. However, the recent episode ended in disappointment for Christer Rødseth (33), who was eliminated from the competition after a tense duel with Selma Ibrahim (28).
Despite giving his best, Rødseth’s performance was not enough to keep him in the competition. He expressed his disappointment, stating that he still had more to offer. The elimination was particularly hard for him as he realized he would not be attending the dance practice the next day.
A Strong Bond Formed
Rødseth’s dance partner, Ida Amy Sund, shared his sentiment but had nothing but praises for Rødseth. She lauded him for his progress since the start of the show. Their journey in the show has resulted in a strong bond that they intend to maintain even after their departure from the show.
TV commentator Maria Ludvigsen affirmed the elimination decision, arguing that Ibrahim’s performance was stronger than Rødseth’s. While Ludvigsen will miss Rødseth’s infectious positive attitude, she acknowledged his lack of dancing skills. But she didn’t miss the chance to appreciate his exceptional cooking skills.
Previous Eliminations and the Level of Competition
The previous week saw the exit of Hadia Tajik (40), who lost a tough dance duel against Rødseth. Tajik sportingly accepted her elimination, attributing it to the high level of competition in the show.
A Change in Scoring System
The recent episode introduced a significant change in the judging process. Earlier, the couples would receive points immediately following their performances. However, the new system required two couples to perform in the same genre, and the points were not awarded until both couples had completed their dances. This change, according to Nina Engh, press officer at TV 2, was implemented to avoid interruptions during the dance battle.
The episode’s theme was “battle night”, where two pairs would face-off in a dance duel. The judges would provide their scores and feedback only after both pairs had finished their performances, adding a new level of suspense and excitement to the show.
