Lucrezia ended up in the skate-off for the second week in a row after failing to impress in the Musicals Special with a Mamma Mia-themed performance.
While the judges said she had vastly improved from the previous week, their execution of the required element – a lunge – was ‘tentative.’
After going head-to-head with Kevin in the skate-off, it was down to the judges who would be safe for another week.
