    Magiterri/Hotarek
    Light blue costumes
    Morricone music of some sort

    Nice 2twist
    SBS 3T - she pops into single
    Stumble out of Throw 2R
    SBS spins completely out of sync
    Rather slow throughout
    Lasso lift (I think), variation on dismount
    Very slow SLSS - the music is very heavy
    Rather unattractive death spiral -then again, all of them are
    Pairs spin in both directions

    Yeah, not too remarkable. She seems unhappy.

    40.48 - 1st (obviously)

    Canac/Coia
    Sparkly maroon costumes
    Two Guitars

    2twist - ok
    SBS 3T - clean but out of sync, I think
    Lasso lift
    SBS spin fast and in-sync until end
    Throw 3S - low but nicely done
    Pairs spin - slow
    SLSS to music
    Death spiral

    Much better than the Italians. They seem very happy with their performance.

    46.82 - 1st

    Sergejeva/Glebov
    Neon green costumes
    Balalaika

    Pairs spin to start - done to music
    3twist - nice and secure
    Throw 3R - two-footed
    Choreo has some nice moments
    SBS 2A - she stumbles out, maybe UR
    Lasso lift - variations in air and on exit
    Death spiral - change of hands (ew), slowing
    SLSS rather lethargic
    SBS spins going out of sync

    Rather meh. She looks very young.

    45.40 - 2nd

    Kawaguchi/Smirnov
    Her in pink, him in a very low-cut black shirt/pants
    Rondo Capriccioso

    The crowd goes wild as they're introduced
    SBS 3T - he 2foots
    Lovely 3twist
    They seem to have decent speed, compared to the last few teams anyways
    Spiral into Throw 3R - lovely
    Lasso lift - I wish she'd point her toes more
    SBS spin with difficult positions - in sync
    SLSS - class of the field so far, decent speed, in-sync and difficult
    Sprial entry into death spiral
    Pairs spin - ok speed, inventive positions
    Goodness, his shirt is low-cut.

    They look quite good, this was well done.

    62.94 - 1st (by far)

    Mukhortova/Trankov
    Light blue bodysuits
    Otonal

    Fingers crossed!
    They are certainly the most elegant pair so far
    Nice 3twist
    SBS 3T - nice!
    Lasso lift - pretty
    Death spiral
    SBS spin - difficult positions, but going out of sync
    Pairs spin - not bad
    SLSS - gaining speed, fairly simple
    Throw 3S - wonky landing, but clean

    Not perfectly clean, but their basic quality is great.

    63.10 - 1st, she seems rather expressionless

    Let's hope this team along with K/S can help with the rise of Russian Pairs Skating

    Black bodysuits
    Cirque du Soleil music

    Nice energy
    SBS 2A - out of sync
    Throw 3T - low but clean
    3twist - very secure
    Lasso lift with difficult variation and exit
    SBS spins - good synchro

    They have potential. That was a fun program.

    Black & white outfits, sparkly
    Piano fantasy

    Huge 3twist, as always
    They are quite fast
    Big, easy Throw 3R
    SBS 3S - they're doing well
    Pairs spin - not very pretty
    Difficult entry into lasso lift, with variations and difficult exit
    SBS spin - in sync, rather slow
    SBS steps - difficult, but slow
    Death spiral
    Finish slightly behind music

    I prefer both K/S and M/T to them, but they have the technical goods.

    69.92 - 1st (inflated, as always...*sigh*)

    Savchenko/Szolkowy
    Sparkly turquoise bodysuit for her, all-white bodysuit for him
    Asoka (soundtrack)

    Cmoooooon!
    Throw 3F - very high, low but clean landing
    3twist - nice
    SBS 3T - she fell
    Pairs spin - both directions, nice positions
    Lasso lift - love the catchfoot carrying over into the dismount
    Death spiral
    SBS spin - fast, good synchro most of the way, interesting positions
    LOVE the SLSS

    Too bad about the fall...she doesn't look happy. Choreographically they are in a league of their own, but they weren't completely "on" today.

    66.78 - 2nd
