Speaking of the performance, Shirley said:"Pure sass and full of attitude. I want to party with you. You are absolutely amazing, but like any quarterfinal in any championship, it takes nerves of steel and things go wrong. And your ending - a bit like John and JoJo's - it went wrong," adding:"It was just unfortunate."

Disaster struck right at the end of the performanceAnton added that AJ was on her way to a place in the semi-final before the ending went wrong."But the rest of it was terrific. The energy was great, I loved it in general but the ending was like: 'Please stop I can't bear it!'"

Johannes and John also experienced a tumble during a liftCraig concurred that it was"unfortunate" but said:"That's life. You've got to deal with it. The landings generally from the lifts were really, really heavy, your transitions were a bit ropey also, it was  flat-footed. All that being said, you were totally watchable. Yes, the end was a complete dance disaster, darling but that can be fixed one day. Well done anway."
