16th March 2012

Tomorrow night is the final of the BBC Let’s Dance for Sport Relief TV show and we will be there at the after show party with a photo booth for all the finalists to have fun in and capture the moment after the winner is crowned.

Celebrities have been dancing away over the last four weeks with some memorable performances including Tony Blackburn and David Hamilton dancing to “Push It” by Salt-n-Pepa, Scott Mills and Olly Murs getting their shuffle on to LMFAO and “Party Rock Anthem” and comedian Patrick Monahan doing his impression of Rihanna and “Only Girl in the World”.

None of these were good enough to make the final though so here’s a rundown of who is dancing for the title of Let’s Dance for Sport Relief 2012 champion and who we think will take home the crown.

Laurie Brett and Tameka Empson
The Eastenders ladies performance of “Telephone” by Lady Gaga and Beyonce was everything that you would want from a performance; funny, energetic and true to the original. They are our pick to be crowned 2012 champions.

Terry Alderton
The comedian’s routine to Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary” saw Terry donning the symbolic hairstyle and red dress of Tina Turner and he gave a truely energetic performance to this upbeat number.

Miles Jupp
An actor who started off as Archies in the CBeebie’s show Balamory, Miles has had cameos, albeit very minor ones, in Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes and Johnny English Reborn and gave it his all as the scary Keith Flint in his performance of “Firestarter” by The Prodigy.

Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards
Dancing to “Soul Bossa Nova” made famous by the Austin Powers films, skier Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards recreated the scene from the first film excellently.

Tyger Drew-Honey and Dani Harmer
Child actors from Outnumbered and Tracey Beaker did a great performance of “Fat Sam’s Grand Slam” from Bugsy Malone.

Omid Djalili
Omid did a very funny and impressive routine to the Public Enemy song “Fight the Power”, with the performance making reference to the London riots of last year and proving very popular with the crowd.

Rowland Rivron
The video to Fatboy Slim’s “Weapon of Choice” often rankings highly in countdowns of the best music videos so to attempt to recreate it could be rather dangerous but Rowland pulled it off to make it into the final.

Fatima Whitbread and The Cuban Brothers
After a successful stint in the jungle on I’m a Celebrity, Olympian Fatima took to the stage with The Cuban Brothers to dance to the classic Bee Gees hit, “You Should Be Dancing”.

If you watch and enjoy the show then make sure to donate, which you can do on the Sport Relief website.
