I love you, Mao, I love you, I honestly don't care where you place! Truth!
Except for the missed 3A (instead 2A/2T), everything else was honest to God FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TT went all Amadeus on Mao's dress...
Mao ties with Caroline as Best Spinners IMHO.
I knew she would miss her 3A, right from the beginning when she was by the boards with TAT (whom looked her straight in the eyes and said "Just Do It"), no way, Mao was way way too nervous.
Music: Masquerade Waltz
Go Mao! Wow, that is a LOT of rosettes on that dress
1A-2T – NOOOOO
Great step sequence, but almost same as last year’s LP
I thought Mao was going to do a flute-and-orchestra arrangement of Masquerade? The music is exactly the same as last year’s LP
P.S. up close I now love her outfit.
Masquerade - it's just a bit too much... poor girl, you'd like to see her able to relax a bit sometime. It does make a more einteresting short program than long though. Popped axel, and was the 3lz 2-footed poosibly? - (no, on replay looked ok, just slightly tight). I LOVED the layback spin, though i think she can execute it even better. Nakano by contrast presented a smooth confident program, it's a shame to see Mao so frantic, she should surely be able to display her talent in other styles...
Yuna's on fire! Wow....definitely in a class of her own.
I have to be honest Yuna Kim is FABULOUS.......she has no weaknesses.......she literally has everything, just like Oksana Baiul did. If she skates like this at the Olympics, she'll win. Hands down.
Her James Bond program is drop dead gorgeous, as is her outfit, choreography, expression, jumps, et al. In the old system I would honestly give her 6.0s all the way across the board!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Strong performance from Yuna, but for some reason the program reminds me of danse macabre.
That program is fun, I'm buying it!
Good Lord, she had that crown in the palm of her hand.
I enjoyed that it did not look like she was *trying* *so* *hard*, in contrast to Mao.
This is a pretty wonderful program, if she delivers it to potential in the big moments.
