DKKQ – Disco Kid, King & Queen 2012
DKKQ 2012 – A Winter Wonderland
Never, ever before has any freestyle event been as eagerly anticipated as this yearâ€™s Disco Kid, King & Queen Grand Finals. The minute that the doors opened on the Friday it was like Christmas had already arrived… indeed it had! The stage was turned into a â€świnter wonderlandâ€ť with twinkling white trees everywhere, twinkling white floor and of course the iconic Giant Letters.
This was it…. DKKQ was here!
To put it briefly the Friday night pairsâ€™ competitions were fantastic! Saturday supporting slowdance was massive! StreetStar was brilliant!
But then the SLOWDANCE SUPERSTAR GRAND FINALS arrived â€“ absolutely SUPERB!!! From the first round to the finals it was a truly excellent competition. The unique trophies were eagerly sought after and will surely take pride of place until next yearsâ€™ Slowdance Superstar Grand Finals!
Sunday morning and the freestyle support event was huge…. and then it was time
3pm – Now known as
DKKQ â€“ THE BIG ONE
The lights go dim… The audience go wild
The lights go out… The audience go wild
The screen comes down… The audience go wild
(Get the picture?)
BY the time the opening video finished and our very own cabaret troupe of 11 ex finalists and winners â€śLEGENDâ€ť took to the floor the audience were screaming…. and Legend didnâ€™t let us down!
The judges paired walk-ons are always a popular moment and again they rose to the occasion â€“ Well done all of you! Then DKKQ 2012 was finally happening!
The introduction down the steps, so often copied now, is still though a huge moment of pride that everyone waits for. It takes a while but that solo moment in the spot-light is priceless!
This opening procession and the unique Heartbeats are just two elements that help separate DKKQ from the rest. The heartbeats into the solo spots (everyone was INCREDIBLE) and then Heartbeats into the results.
Nervous tension takes over the room.
The results come out in reverse order.
Down to the last two.
The atmosphere was electric…. The excitement of both the runner up and the winner is another unique moment for all.
Then, with the biggest crowd for years watching on it was time for the 11 DKKQ winners to hear about this yearsâ€™ prize….
Glitter cannons going off
Streamers coming down
A video showing such stars as Cheryl Cole, Bruno Mars, Little Mix, One Direction and more…. we are all off the JINGLE BELL BALL at Londonâ€™s O2… we canâ€™t wait! Watch out for the pictures from the prize winning trip!
The weekend in Blackpool was absolutely fabulous and everyone who danced should be very proud of themselves. The standard throughout was unbelievable and everyone helped make it a truly magical event.
But now keep watching out for the heats of DKKQ 2013 – coming soon.
It could be your time, like the event itself, to become…
ONE TRUE LEGEND!
