Arlene Puts On Her Dancing Shoes.
LONDON, Tuesday 19th January 2009; She’s used to taking a ring side seat as TV’s fiercest judge, but for one night only, Arlene Phillips hits the dancefloor as she performs alongside finalists from So You Think You Can Dance at the 15th anniversary National Television Awards tomorrow night.
Arlene, a judge on the Saturday night entertainment show, will cement her TV comeback after a very public departure from Strictly Come Dancing last year when she hits the stage at the O2 arena to perform in front of all of TV’s best loved faces, including her former panellists from Strictly.
Arlene, in a stunning Alexander McQueen frock, and her troupe will dance to Christina Aguilera’s hit Aint No Other Man.
Arlene’s on stage appearance comes as the ten remaining finalists from So You Think You Can Dance perform an electrifying routine; with the National Television Awards switching to a new venue and welcoming a new host in Dermot O’Leary, the ceremony will showcase more performances than ever before, with The X Factor stars John and Edward and Joe McElderry also on the bill.
It’s a tense night for the Strictly contingent as they go head-to-head with The X Factor to battle it out for the coveted Most Popular Talent Show award – voting lines close at mid-day on Wednesday 20th January.
The National Television Awards will broadcast live on ITV1 on Wednesday 20th January from 7.30pm.
