    That was beautiful...really touching! Their chemeistry, as usual, is just heart wrenching.
    Great position on the pair camel The twizzles worried me a little, though.

    Is that dismount off that crazy "no hands" life legal? I wouldn't have thought so.

    This FD really suits them, and they are the perfect pair to dance this program today; however the transitions are not always there, and I hope Igor fixes this problem before the GP season starts.

    Enjoy the clip. Tessa was so gorgeous
    Thanks for the long awaited clip, ehdtkqorl123

    A rather surprising choice, IMO. So classic, almost conservative. Somehow I picture Patrick Chan skating to that piece. I don't know, could work.

    love the music choice, but the moves don't strike me as too original. Besides, the music is too rushed, that's not how this mahler piece should be played at all, and I do agree they need to work on transitions.

    That was breathtaking.....so soft and they just floated across the ice! It is so nice to see them in such great shape after such a troublesome last year. Love the dismount from the no hands lift and their pair spin.

    That felt like an hour. Very boring.

    I like it...

    , but I like their softer, sentimental programs.. I understood what they were trying to accomplish with last year's Led Zeppelin, but it wasn't my "cup of tea."

    Isn't that the same music Katia Gordeeva used at "Celebration of a Life" ?



    OOPS! Tinymavy just reminded me it was PINK FLOYD last year; I guess it really wasn't my thing!

    Beautiful. It reminded me of the Vale Triste program, but more like a ballanchine ballet. I am stunned at how polished it looks so early in the season when "Pink Floyd" always looked unfinished and not trained enough even at the end of the season. This is certainly an olympic program and the perfect vehicle for them. The only thing I did not like was the "no-hands" lift and that jump down dismount. I wonder if that is even considered a lift, since he never actaully lifts her, but more of a balance move? I thought it did not quite fit the rest of the program....I did not like it in the Pink Floyd program really either, but certainly not here.

    Well it must be considered a lift since they got credit for it at every competition last year.

    oooh! that is one CLASSY routine - I love it. Understated, elegant, and the skating does the talking - not any "affectation" to tell you what the program is about, and certainly no pandering to the audience with such a music choice - I feel this will be absolutely incredible come the peak of the season, when one considers how much they were really able to refine and push their Umbrellas of Cherbourg routine over that season in time for that phenomenal perfomance at Worlds.. Incredible lines and posture from Tessa. Probably not much as a departure for them in style as might have been hoped, but this is them doing what they best have to offer, and is still very refreshing.

    Gosh, that music bores me. The way they skated it was quite elegant and beautiful, but I was Zzzzzz with that music a little bit.

    I don't care for that lift either (not last year or this year). Seeing the "dismount" reminds of pairs and makes me think of comments that D/W were the team that looked like pair skaters. lol I hope this program picks up through the season because it seemed long to me on first viewing....

    Yes, it is. Mahler's Adagietto from 5th Symphony. This music was not meant to be sentimental by the composer (even if many music listeners - or conductors... - consider it so) and it really shouldn't be skated in a sentimental way. I think that Tessa and Scott didn't.
