Strictly Come Dancing viewers have taken to Twitter to criticise and celebrate the cover of an Arctic Monkeys song in Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell’s routine.
The pair’s quickstep showdown attracted mixed reactions for the use of ‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor‘ during the series final today (December 15).

Some people applauded the pair’s “darn hot” dance and the Strictly band’s “super cute” rendition of the Monkeys classic. But others slammed the cover, saying that the band “murdered” the song.
One Twitter user, Jingle Bellinger, loved the rendition: “I say it every year, but the Strictly band are incredible. World class. They go from Robbie Williams to Adele to the Arctic Monkeys and every track could easily be the actual record. It’s so impressive. #StrictlyFinal”.

Another wrote: “The strictly house band/orchestra clearly loved doing Arctic Monkeys. Also surprised no one has done it before. Super cute #StrictlyFinal”.
A number of other people, however, bemoaned the use of the song.
“Strictly singers attempting Arctic Monkeys. Please god no!!!!!! #scd #Strictly”, wrote one fan on Twitter. A particularly inflammatory comment read: “Arctic Monkeys? Joe deserves death”.
