For Week 9, Strictly Come Dancing 2019 (Series 17) contestants head to Blackpool for a spectacular night of dance.
After the participating dance couples had performed their routines, the judges were left to decide who between dance couples Saffron Barker & AJ Pritchard (aka Saffron & AJ) and Michelle Visage & Giovanni Pernice (aka Michelle & Giovanni) would advance to the next level of the dance competition.
Saffron & AJ had a total score of 35 for their Quickstep routine and ranked 4th among all couples, based on their average score of 31. 4 after 9 dances.
Meanwhile, Michelle and Giovanni got a score of 32, the lowest for Week 9, for their Street dance which they performed to Madonna’s “Vogue”. After 9 dances, the couple was in 3rd place based on their average score of 33.1.
Despite their overall rankings, Saffron & AJ and Michelle & Giovanni landed in the bottom 2.
Judges Craig Revel Horwood, Bruno Tonioli, and Motsi Mabuse voted to save Saffron & AJ. Head judge Shirley Ballas did not vote but said she would have voted to save Saffron & AJ, too.
RuPaul’s Drag Race judge, singer, and TV personality Michelle Visage was thus eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing, along with her professional dance partner Giovanni Pernice. Michelle & Giovanni ended the competition in 7th place.
Michelle got a standing ovation from the judges and the audience as she bowed out of the competition.
Asked to comment about her Blackpool experience, Michelle said the the whole experience had been amazing. “At 51 years old and never dancing in my life, I never thought I’d be able to do what I’ve done.”
Meanwhile, YouTube personality and author Saffron Barker and her professional dance partner AJ Pritchard stay in the competition and will join dance couples Kelvin & Oti, Karim & Amy, Emma B. & Anton, Alex & Neil, and Chris & Karen on Week 10 of Strictly Come Dancing 2019.
