More of a showcase for the band (and an opportunity to sell some CDs in the foyer) than a full-on dance performance, though this did not greatly diminish the impact of the show. Three of Strictly's professional dancers (Artem Chigvintsev, Kristina Rihanoff and Robin Windsor) were joined by Kara Tointon, a former celebrity champion, who managed to hold her own alongsde the fierce talent she was lining up with. Rihanoff should have a licence for most of her moves and Windsor played up his cheeky chappie factor to maximum effect too.
Musically, it was a night of populist treats. From Eva Cassidy's Somewhere Over The Rainbow to a stunning new arrangement of My Girl, the four vocalists looked like they were enjoying every minute of their stage time. The audience participation in the second half was suitably cringeworthy and, in true BBC style, no participant left without a gift bag (and a hug from their Strictly dance partner).
A fantastic jive cover version of Bruno Mars' Runaway Baby led into a disco finale section, which featured Chigvintsev and Windsor in crowd-pleasing kilts.
While very different from the Strictly tour, which involves a heady dose of pantomime fervour from the judges, this pared-down and musically-focused show got everyone up on their feet or seat bopping along. Dance To The Music? Job done.
