    Kerrs brought the contemporary/modern touch

    P/B brought the voids

    V/M brought pure class.

    I liked them all quite a bit! They each have work to do, you can tell this is early season.. but I like icedance competitions like this where there is this kind of variety, all well done.

    I think, the jumping itself is OK.

    101 things going on, finally back!

    I just wanted to say that I honestly think it's time that Evan & Emily went to the next step, and that includes an American choreographer. They have the goods, they just need the right program, choreography, et al. JMHO.

    Tessa looked lovely... Almost like a bride.. They are both beatiful on ice, some great elements, but I am not convinced about music.. And the ending was a bit strange. Nevertheless, strong 1st place.

    V/M program looked lot better than earlier competitions ones on Youtube. Congrats to all three medalists.

    I agree it looked better. But not drop dead gorgeous.

    The deduction was for an extended lift (presumably the first one).

    Well, it's fixable. They'll know better next time, I'm sure.

    V/M: such great opening choreography. musicality.....grace....romance....that is marred by the most horrendous, pantie showing, awkward combo lift.
    amazing footwork, flow, edge work. i love it.
    and out comes their cool hands free lift which is totally out of context. i think the second deduction is for the 1.5 rotations that tessa did. isnt there a rule in ice dance that ONE person in a team can perform a single jump of any sort....and she two-footed that inside-edge scott moir take off.

    the 2nd rotational lift is the only lift that worked. climaxed to the music. drama. dynamic. but again cute panties tessa...

    awkward ending.

    can't wait to die watching this in vancouver...

    P/B: weird. but for some reason the theme of time really adds a sense of drama. their footwork improved. or maybe just their style just changed. lifts were a bit hectic. the motif of ticking is absolute genius in choreography. it just completes the whole essense of time and life. reverse straight line lift with kicking legs to the ticks...<3 their transitions are a bit awkward like in the twizzles....might be because of the way the music is mixed. something more sleek and refined for costumes would be a smarter choice. definately will see improvement.

    Nope, the deductions came from an extended lift - the first lift they did.
