    This is pure sexism, stupidity and narrow-mindedness. North-American men are all manly and don't wear sparkles - but the little girls still wear pretty / sexy / elaborate dresses with sparkles etc.
    Oh I don't know I think they balance each other. Charlie has had sparklies before, his Eleanor Rigby outfit was sparkly, but not crazy sparkly....

    is this decorative enough?

    I admit I did not recognize him either. He should consider this look (the hair) for Phantom. It makes him looks scarier.

    I read somewhere that it is no longer double. There is no longer a manditory negative GOE.

    I agree that this hairstyle works much better for Phantom, except I don't think it makes Charlie look scary at all. IMO it makes him look sexy, passionate, and intense . . . maybe even a little ferocious. Just the way I like my men.

    Right; it's no longer mandatory for the GOE on downgraded jumps to be negative, and the judges are no longer told that the tech panel downgraded them.

    However, if the judges can see the underrotation for themselves and the other aspects of the element are no more than adequate, then the GOE will still be negative.

    (In some cases other aspects of the jump will be less than adequate, in which case we would expect negative GOE even without a downgrade. With underrotation as well, there's more than one error, therefore more than one penalty.)

    I like a costume that suits the character of the program, without being distracting.

    They want to make a statement - fine, do it like Virtue / Moir who both wore the simplest costumes to their freedance last year.
    If Charlie White is playing Raoul from Phantom of the Opera, then a ridiculously bland costume is in character.

    OMG. I can't believe they did that for competition. I knew they skated like that for the summer shows...but I wonder if they will risk this in Vancover. Very interesting.

    I get the feeling he is playing the Phantom.

    Did anyone else hear the lyrics in Aliona and Robin's LP music? I could hear the choir singing 'You'll never walk alone' quite clearly, but I checked their scores and there wasn't any deductions.

    To me, the downgrade all by itself is such a HUGE deduction that the other little tenths of a point are kind of irrelevant one way or another. A downgrade is not really a penalty for messing up the element. Rather, a downgrade says, you didn't do the element (a triple jump) at all.

    I suppose the hope is that skaters will be forced to rotate their jumps fully or go home. Maybe some skaters will start planning a few double jumps in their programs, knowing that seven fully rotated triples is beyond their skill.

    I suppose one could say, vive la differénce.

    But, yeah, the Marlboro Man don't wear no sissy city-slicker duds (nice leatherwork on his chaps, though).

    He is playing the Phantom.
    "It's a generalization of the story itself," White said. "We didn't have to go with the whole structure of the movie. There's the mystery when they meet, then the phantom gets Christine to love him, then he reveals his face at the end."

    I agree his costume is quite simple, you don't expect that in a Phantom of the Opera FD. Someone over FSU posted this pic, it looks very similar to what Charlie's wearing.

    I wondered this too. I wasn't sure if I was hearing actual words or not.

    Heh. I was asking myself the same thing, at some point I was thinking that I simply might be imagining the words, because we all know the song so well.

    But I don't care if there are lyrics or not I WANT NEW MUSIC ALTOGETHER!!!

    I was almost positive I heard it too, but I told my self I only thought I did becuase I know the lyrics. Maybe they think that it is worth the point deduction to get that artistic effect. They would be just to type to do that and still win

    Did they not get decduced at this event? Maybe the judges are being lenient or else we are only imagining things.
