The sports profile was rewarded with one 10s and a total of 36 points in Saturday’s broadcast.
On Saturday, it is ready for another round of “Shall we dance”, and this evening there are two couples who smoke after last Saturday’s voting trouble, which made Nate Kahungu (24) enter the competition again after first smoking out.
This week, TV 2 has worked hard to ensure that the voting trouble last week will not happen again.
VG follows Saturday’s “Skal vi danse” live, and will update this case during the broadcast.
– Our supplier for these polls is based in London, and it is a company we have used for many years. On Sunday morning, we were informed that there had been capacity challenges, and that the challenges took place there. Some did not press the button to vote inside our website, says press manager in TV 2, Jan-Petter Dahl, to VG.
Did you see this one? Birgit Skarstein got a full pot in “Skal vi danse” last Saturday:
Thus, the decision was very easy to make, he believes.
– Everyone who votes through TV 2 in any competition must be completely sure that the result that comes out at the other end is correct. Therefore, it was absolutely right that Nate should be allowed to return to the program, and we are happy that he agreed to that. He got to start training as fast as the other couples that Sunday. He may have lost a few hours, but no more.
The points from the judges in Saturday’s broadcast can be found at the bottom of the case.
– So what have you done to prevent this from happening again?
– Throughout the week, we have been in dialogue with those who control our online poll, and they have promised us that there will be no capacity challenges in the future. We have also never had any problems before last Saturday. We also have a kind of “hotline” to London tonight if there should be anything. They are ready for us this Saturday if something should happen.
– What have they done with their system?
– As far as I understand, they have turned on the system to increase capacity considerably. They have promised us that this will be good enough, and that it will take away the number of votes that come tonight and well so, he explains.
– Shouldn’t you have had a “hotline” to London last Saturday as well?
– Yes, but it must be said that it was no problem to get them then either. But we have sharpened the routine considerably, says press manager at TV 2, Jan-Petter Dahl, to VG.
It was only during the decisive dance duel last Saturday that there was trouble with the voices. This means that the dance couples now take with them both judge points and audience votes from last week until Saturday’s broadcast. Three couples end up in a duel, where two of them drop out of the competition.
This is how it went on Saturday night:
Marte Bratberg and dance partner Benjamin Jayakoddy were first out.
– That’s how we want the first dance. Dead good! You were perhaps a little too static, said dance judge Egor Filipenko after they had finished their show dance.
The duo was rewarded with 33 points on Saturday, and also takes with them 36 points from last Saturday.
Birgit Skarstein and dance partner Philip were rewarded with 36 points in Saturday’s broadcast, and also take with them 40 points from last. Judge Tore Pettersson gave the pair ten points.
– I got tears in my eyes for the first time in five years after I started in “Skal vi danse”. You showed that you were equal on the dance floor, he said in the program.
Former ski star Thomas Alsgaard and dance partner Rikke Lund got 26 points.
– I sat and smiled. There was a side of Thomas we have not seen. It’s about performing there and then and you did, Judge Trine Dehli Cleve said after Alsgaard and Rikke had danced.
The same judge thought that Agnete “Agnetesh” and dance partner Bjørn have more to go on. They got only 22 points.
– I feel maybe I would have had more development in program seven, it will be too confusing, she said.
Viewers say it was not possible to vote during the “Shall we dance” duel
