    I'm watching this on my phone and will do my best to provide PBP. Things are just about to start after the commercial break. Shizuka is one of the commentators. They have little bobble-heads of all the skaters. They are... disturbing...

    But then I thought the SP scores at worlds were all inflated.

    Cynthia Phaneuf

    2A
    3Lz (fall)
    3T
    Flying Back Sit Combo
    Straightline Footwork
    Spiral Sequence
    Spin Combo
    Layback

    The main thing that stood out to me in this program were the sheer number of crossovers... Seemed like she didn't do a very good job masking where she was building speed with much of anything interesting.

    3F-2T
    3Lz (maybe edge call)
    Layback (needs work...)
    2A (a little heavy on the landing)
    Butterfly into spin combo
    Spiral Step Sequence
    Straightline Footwork
    Spin Combo

    Hmm. This whole performance felt heavy and forced. I don't know how else to describe it. She seems very pleased, however.

    Rachel Flatt

    3F-3T (looked clean)
    3Lz (maybe edge call, hard to see from this angle)
    Spin Combo
    Straightline Footwork
    Layback
    2A
    Spiral Step Sequence
    Stars/Butterfly into Spin Combo

    A nice, if reserved, program. I like the color of her dress, but not sure how I feel about the big, black bow. I do like that her hair is not in a scalp-stretching bun. The hair down looks nice.

    Are the two french Didier ladies related?
    Mao is definitely on her way to 1st place as expected in her home country, To win over Mao during the LP, would mean Mao imploded. Not likely.

    3Lz-3L (wonder if they gave her credit)
    3F
    2A
    Spiral Step Sequence
    Flying Back Sit Spin
    Straightline Footwork (bonus points for working in a Besti Squat)
    Spin Combo
    Layback

    Solid performance. Curious about whether the judges will credit the 3L. It looked ok on my tiny screen.

    ETA: In the slow-mo replay, it's clearly underrotated. So nvm on that.

    Joannie Rochette

    2A
    3Lz-2T (maybe two-footed on the lutz, hard to tell - looked tight)
    Flying Back Sit Spin
    3F (double 3's out of the landing)
    Spin Combo
    Straightline Footwork
    Spiral Step Sequence
    Layback

    Jumps were a little rough. They didn't look as easy as they usually do.

    ETA: In replay, Lutz in definitely two-footed.

    No surprises here with the top five. Mao's score is quite high.She is very capable of scoring high and she must have been spot on racking up the points. Can't wait to see her SP. U.S ladies need to break 60 ..... Thanks to everyone for the updates.
