    I can hear crying in the K&C but I cannot see it.

    Znang/Zhang. Don't like this light jazzy music for them. They are just not fun skaters, but maybe they can try better. Huge 3 twist. She popped sbs 3S, Huge throw 3L.
    61.92.Into 4th place. Well, they did not have sbs jump.

    So The results are clear. Shen/Zhao are 10 points ahead of everybody else here!
    Than it's 3 pairs with very close results. I'm happy for I/M for current 3 place, hope they can stay on podium tomorrow.

    This was one of the most horrific music selections for the pairs ever. What's with all those classically arranged pop-songs? Hotel California from D/B, Who wants to live forever by S/Z, Yesterday by the young Russians? My ears are crying. What are people thinking, that an Olympic audience would not understand decent music and would get better into a program with pop songs everybody knows.

    The low score of the Zhangs - maybe the death spiral got deductions, I don't think he achieved the required position.

    2nd-4th are pretty much tied. They scored within a point of each other. I don't think any of the three were really that much better than the others, so I am fine with the placements.

    Aside from Shen/Zhao, I found the rest of the programs generally lackluster. I know they were trying to do something different, but I don't think that music suited Zhang/Zhang.

    I kind of agree with you at this point. IT's strange to see all these pairs skating to pop songs. But all these war horses are esy going things as well. I would not want to see another Carmen out there. Hotel California is better for me.

    Totally agree with that.. The music selections once again remind us that we're in the olympic year. But if you want real ear-bleeding, I suggest you go back to the ladies skate in COR.. I almost suffocated after a while of listening to one horrible music choice after the other so much that I actually rejoiced Mao's LP music. :chorus:

    But it was the same last year, with all the Pink Floyd programs; I also recall having the Rolling Stones, Queen, and Linkin Park (yeah, not exactly on the same level) represented in the pairs. I thought S/Z's worked well; with I/M, I was too distracted by her ugly costume to notice anything else, and at least Hotel California is an original choice.

    Great SP result for Shen/Zhao! They should sail easily to a gold medal win here at Cup of China. Very happy for them!!

    I agree these music selections were rather painful to listen to. I don't even mind skating to pop songs, but these ones irritated me. Maybe it was because most of these teams seemed to use the music as background noise. Not much interpretation going on.

    I'm so happy for S/Z! The costumes are great, especially Xue's. Thet looked so refreshing and sharp! Megan may need to consider lighten up a bit

    I totally agree with you. I'm disappointed with S/Z's SP. They looked quite slow to me. I think the pairs skating is coming to a dead end. Nearly all the teams are doing the same thing in an awkward and ugly way, which is really painful to watch. S/Z's death spiral looked so strange Just to gain more points?
    I think I can no longer enjoy the beauty of figure skating from the pairs category.

    BTW, this is my first post on GS. Hope it won't dampen your high spirits Here.
