    Shame about the microphone placements. Lovely performance, though.

    Hopefully someone will upload the rest soon, I heard the Gala was great.

    Thanks, Okami! Great performance as usual. I'm a big fan of this gala program. Superb choreography. I think Tarasova did a great job.

    And very cute photos!! Mao, Nobunari and Pang/Tong! I love them all.

    I think Mao's gala performance was lovely, and I luuuuuve this girl's LP performanc at NHK But I must say I didn't feel a genuine Tango note in her portrayal despite all her loveliness I just couldn't help but feel this way--especially because I already watched Akiko Suzuki's passionate tango performance before Mao hit the ice. And I must say THAT is what a tango performance should be like

    Akiko Suzuki really impressed me this time. I hope she can be at the worlds team (can they send four or even five ladies there? It's a rhetorical question. I know they can't, but I truly don't mind if they can do that!) Go Akiko!

    It would be great if they could! The Japanese Nationals are going to be such a nail-bitter! I want all top 5 ladies to go to Worlds!

    The Faiella/Scali link is down due to a TOS violation.
