Week Ten: Music and Performances Revealed

Pack your passport, as the next leg of our contestants’ journey takes them Around the World! There are only four more weekends (sad face) until one of the seven remaining celebrities gets their hands on the Glitterball Trophy, and the competition is getting tough.

Pixie Lott & Trent Whiddon Charleston to 'Sparkling Diamonds' Pixie swaps Sparkling Diamonds for Tulips From Amsterdam this week.

This week each of our couples will be performing a routine inspired by another country. On top of all that, the Strictly pros will be kept on their toes by Bollywood dancers and Lord of the Dance when they join them for this weekend’s group dances.

Without further ado, these are the dances the couples will be performing and the music that will be performed live on Saturday by the Dave Arch band:

  • Caroline and Pasha will be performing the Charleston to They Might Be Giant’s version of 'Istanbul'. (TURKEY)
  • Frankie and Kevin will be performing the Jive to ‘Surfin’ USA’ by The Beach Boys. (USA)
  • Jake and Janette will be performing the Argentine Tango to 'Zorba The Greek'. (GREECE)
  • Mark and Karen will be performing the Salsa to ‘Viva Las Vegas' by Elvis Presley. (USA)
  • Pixie and Trent will be performing the Viennese Waltz to 'Tulips From Amsterdam' by Max Bygraves. (NETHERLANDS)
  • Simon and Kristina will be performing the Waltz to 'Edelweiss' from The Sound of Music. (AUSTRIA)
  • Sunetra and Brendan will be performing the Rumba to Michael Bolton’s version of 'Girl From Ipanema'. (BRAZIL)

We’ve teamed up with BBC Playlister to make a Spotify playlist with music from the show. Listen to it here.
