This year, it is very hard to predict who will be at GPF except Yuna and Miki so far.
I have not seen this competition yet.
But what happend to Joannie? I expected Joannie so much, hopefully she will skate better LP programme.
I am very happy for Carolina!!!I am looking forward to watching Carolina's SP today! Sei sempre BRAVA!
nah, i don't want to get banned for getting too far off-topic. ^_^ but i really appreciate the humorous observations, especially when they are gentle and playful rather than malicious--the yellow highlighter comment was just perfect. right now i love you almost as much as i love nagasu and kostner.
forgot to mention i liked yan liu's program very much--i like her quiet grace and i don't need break neck speed when the music and choreography don't call for it.
i like suguri's speed and jumps still--but i'm already tired of that costume w/ the gloves that go all the way up the shoulder / fuse with the sleeves. is that the next thing now that all the ladies are wearing bootcovers? what's next? skating in a full body condom? or a ski-mask like a robber? that way nobody could be accused of mugging to the judges.

Speaking of dress, do joannie and yuna have the same designer?
The forms look similar to me.
I think Joannie's dress is much nicely done, though.
Btw, nice program of Joannie. I believe her sp should be very impressive if she is not as nervous as today.
It seems that one of Kostner's spin sequences was counted as invalid. That's what I read from a Chinese skating forum. But good for her for a clean skate. Very happy to see her smile in the end. This performance should boost her morale and confidence a lot.
Was Rachael really crying in the K&C? I feel so bad for Joannie and Bebe. Good for Caro and Kiira. Can't wait to watch it later.
OMG! Just seeing the results now . . . what in the world is happening to so many of the favorites this season? Chan out of Grand Prix, Joubert and Kostner not making the podium in Paris, Asada not making the podium in Moscow, and now Rochette in this very disappointing SP outing. I hope everyone is able to rebound from these frustrating outings. Thankfully, it is the beginning of the season for them!
Maybe Joannie can use the anger from today's disappointment in the SP to fuel her LP into a flawless performance a la Canadian Nationals last season when she skated a clean 7 triple LP after a very flawed 2nd place SP behind Phaneuf. The SP has almost always been Rochette's gauntlet. So sad. *sigh*
I think Nagasu, Suzuki, Flatt, and Rochette will round out the top 4 finish in any order.

I'm thrilled for Mirai but sad for Joannie! Wish them both have a great LP tomorrow! Glad Yan Liu did a clean SP!

I missed COC so far and this result totally shockes me.
Joannie 10 points behind the leader?? What happened??

Anyway congrats Mirai!!
For Program Components the order was
Same here. Well, so surprised to see the reults.
What happend to Joannie and Rachael?!
Are they unfortunately, in a jet-lag or not in shape?
Mira's SP is wonderful. Her spin and spiral is superb!!!!
Does she earn lots of GOE?
