Geez, I know the guys from North America are manly and all - but it's Phantom of the Opera, for heaven's sake! Would it hurt to wear a costume? Or is he supposed to portray unnamed servant No.4 who appears in act 2 for 5 seconds?
Was Alissa's LP overscored?
She did two acceptable jumps and got base value for them, plus or minus a little GOE.
She flubbed her other five jumping passes and got scores ranging from 0.00 to 2.74 for her efforts.
She did some pretty good spins and a pretty good spiral and received the pounts that skaters get for pretty good spins and pretty good spirals.
She did fine (high 6's) in interpretation, choreography and performance (setting aside the jumps, which are scored separately under the CoP rules.)
Put it all together and she ended up with an LP score that is about 40 points less than Yu-na Kim can put on the board on a good day.
Same with Lambiel. He got points for what he did well, he didn't get any points for what he didn't do (a triple Axel, for instance) -- add it all up, there you go.

What does : Li+TRANS means in almost every dance pair protocols?!
Looks like Australia won't be sending figure skaters to the Olympics for the first time since 1972.
Sucks to be down under at the moment!

Here is Alissa's Sp
She skated clean, but I just don't get the fire from here that I feel Zorro need. She looks beautiful, but I wish she would have brought a little more character like she did in her Don Quixote exhibition. Also her entrances to the luzt and the axel looked really out of control...like she was heading in on direction and then jumped in the other direction.
