just found caroline's gala, don't know if it's already posted elsewhere, but i don't see it so:
Thanks for posting.
It's good that she's going for an edgier colour costume-wise, but lose the dark eyeliner, Caroline! It just doesn't suit you, not at this age anyways.
Just look at that spiral sequence - the best in the business at the moment. Now, why can't she do it that fast and with such a smooth CoE in competition?
Lol, in the slow-mo replay, I noticed Caroline had a wardrobe malfunction - something sparkly fell off!
ETA: As per FSU, the rest of the exhibitions are here:

Thank you for the link. Caroline's Charlotte spiral is just beautiful and I agree it is the best in the business.
I actually love Caroline's eye makeup here. So much better than that blue eyeshadow she wears for Ave Maria.
I like this exhibition much better for Rachael than the one to Simple Gifts... I love how the step sequence and the Ina Bauer work with the music.
Caroline's ex is really cute, I'd prefer a dark blue dress though(or is that blue, it's really hard to see whether it's black or super, super-dark blue). But it's nice to see her in something else than pastels.

FYI...Rachael choreographed this program herself!
Wow, Stephane was fabulous !!!

Caroline may be the best exhibition skater out there right now. Here use of the music is perfect and those spirals wow!
I loved the makeup and the dress. She should use that look for competition next year. I think we are all tired of the washed out child ballerina look. She actually reminds me a little of Bebe now.
I've watched nearly all of them and so far:
Rachael and Oda were really pleasant surprises. Oda's jump content was indeed . I think he could be one of the top skaters... Maybe he lacks a little stun-factor, but if you appreciate his musicality and nice-to-watch jumps, he's definitely an amazing skater. Rachael should skate this EX again next season and work very closely with whoever will choreographing her competitive programs, because she seemed to know what she was doing. Especially; she seemed to understand what the music needed and how to do it while playing out her strengths; a job well done!
Stéphane and Caroline are amazing gala skaters. When I watch Caroline skating I'm always thinking what don't you skate to music like that in competition and ditch stuffy Ave Maria? She needs music with a lot of melody, not too heavy but expressive still. Hope she'll have good music next season.
Stéphane; makes me think about what I must've missed from the time before I started watching figure skating a year and half ago. He must have been amazing at his peak.
Jeremy and Patrick need to go home and rest. Especially Jeremy who didn't even manage a double axel let alone a triple. They're both hugely talented skaters and I hope they can live up to their potential next season; because if they're on, I'm absolutely a fan!!
Takahiko: don't you just want to hug him and take him to the movies? Ah well, it's probably just me. He's a cutie pie. He might not be dominant next season, but he'll soon be a fierce contender on the scene.

"Hold an edge and look sexy!"
Did Tanith and Ben skate in the exhibition? And what programme did they use?
Yes, here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8b0IWNZ3AM It's Bleeding Love. I wondered why stopped doing Falling Slowly. I loved that program.
