Funny program, but he relies on his mimic skills, not his skating to carry the theme

I like this program at Nationals, but right now I was not impressed. Either he missed the beat this time or the program does not look well on TV.

I liked this program more from GP coverage, this time he seemed to miss the musical highlights.

As usual good spins and steps, troubles with axel. I don't think this program suits him, but he got more comfortable with it now.

He used to have more interesting programs in the past, this one was rather empty between the elements. Good step sequences, nicely fit to music.

Carmina Burana should be banned. It makes absolutely pathetic programs. I don't think he deserved to beat Chiper.
