I can't watch Mark these days so I'm not very unbiased, but she seemed OK other than the tears.

I've always found she had a bit of a false veneer about her. We'll see if that cracks a bit over time. The tears can go, I don't want that to become a thing. Still, it was a good dance. A nod to Mark for not overdancing her, although there was a moment where he showboated a bit. But overall, much more subdued. Thank heavens.

Week 1 On the Red Carpet Interview with Katherine and Mark:
Posted Mar 22, 2012 @ 1:37 PM
She did what she needed to do to make a good first impression this week and I'm anxiously awaiting their Jive. If she can handle Latin, than she will make it far in this season.

If I had to guess, I'd say it's to become more well known in the US and sell more albums. In the UK she's apparently quite a big deal and doesn't need the exposure there.
I'm mainly familiar with Katherine Jenkins from her appearances on Graham Norton, so I am curious; is there any specific reason why she's on DTWS and not Strictly? Does she spend more time in the US or something?

Katherine is a little irritated with Mark.
Mark is calling her the Welsh Wiggler. That might not be a bad thread name? We've already learned that Katherine can dance really well.
I'm really glad to see Katherine do so well. I'm even liking Mark this season and I never thought I'd be saying that!
**Update** I just googled Welsh Wiggler and urban dictionary gives a very naughty definition for it. I don't know where urban dictionary came up with that slang expression. I'm not sure it would be appropriate for a thread name after all. Google it yourself and see what you think. I do know they've been calling Katherine the Welsh Wiggler all over the internet in various news stories and on twitter.

I think it's a perfectly fine thread title. When I heard them saying it in the show, I thought it was the perfect thread title. I was always a little ticked that she had such a generic title, and I think Welsh Wiggler is just fine. Most words have naughty slang attached to it in some way, so I don't think it's a problem.
Now that we know she can kill the Latin as well as the ballroom, I am super stoked to see her kill all the other styles. I think she's at least semi-finals bound, if not the finals. I mean, after all, she's setting herself apart of one of the best dancers this season and they always have at least 1 female star in the finals and I think she's all but securing that spot.

I think more than anything, her performance background, charisma, and the ability to bring it under pressure is what's helping her. You don't graduate from the Royal Academy without learning to perform when it counts. And for all his faults, Mark actually is a good teacher. He even turned Bristol into a passable dancer.

She is the best dancer this season, and certainly she deserves to win on that alone. But I don't trust her or like her.

How about as a thread title: "Katherine Jenkins: Shaking her naughty bits"? I think that;s funny enough without using welsh wiggler.

I'm also impressed with how fit she is. Katherine finished that jive and didn't seem winded at all.
Katherine isn't afraid to show her curves in a classy way.
