    I hope Joannie will rise from this. I absolutely loved that SP programme and think she totally deserved those high PCSs.. She sold me the music, the choreo, the feeling even with the total pissed off look on her face during spirals.. Some rare skaters have the ability to show musicality and make you enjoy the programme even when the jumps are falling apart.. Rochette for instance, Kostner (sometimes), Asada, Ponsero, Verner etc... Respect is in order.

    But what if the PCS total was, say, divided by 2 (so it's only 1/3 instead of 1/2 the score)? Even more radical, they can be tossed out completely, if skating wanted to be actually *objective*.

    Really SHOCK at Joannie's score What HAPPENED????
    It's called BSPS (bomb the short program sydrone). lol She had bombs her SP numeruous occasion before so itès not suprising. But I think she can still make the podium and win. The only skater she has to watch out for is Kostner, and if she skate it clean and land her 3+3, 10 points maybe a little too much to catch up, but not impossible.

    Is Mirai supposed to be skating like a 24 year old? Give ger another year and I wouldn't be surprised to see her doing very well, and even getting marks that reflect what she did on the ice.

    I didn't see Akikko yet, only know she is much older than Mirai.....
    The judges should totally ignore the age. It would be like considering an injury. If Mirai needs another year to skate less awkward, less choppy and more to the music, then she needs another year. I found her performance to be by far inferior to Akiko's, and not just by the 0,32 PCS Akiko got more.

    I'm glad she did well in the SP but I'll definitely wait until after the FS to celebrate (if she nails that too, of course)

    I think Marai is not bad at all. I expect she will improve her SP by next GP assignment. If i want to see a world champion coming from out of the US crops, it will be her and Ashley. They both have the look at me attitude and IT factors.

    I hope she can maintain her momentum and stay on the podium for at least a medal. Both she and Kostner need to be on the podium to get the confident back. If Kostner win, she can still get into the final with tie breaker, but its a long shot.

    The FS will be exciting. =)

    OK, I understand and accept your view. Apparently the crowd in attendance, who saw it live disagreed with you. Of course, that is not any real proof - but I have nothing against a coltish performance or a mature one. I can't compare coz I did not see Akiko - but I thought Mirai looked good.

    OMG! Just rememebered Mirai is doing Carmen.
    Is she starting off with two strikes against her?
    Not for me as I happen to love the music from Carmen but I know many music aficionados here can't stand it.

    She will have to lose a little bit of the remaining "cuteness" factor to pull it off.
    Go Mirai!!!!!!!!!

    Just finished watching top 7 ladies.
    I loved Mirai, Caro and Akiko!
    Mirai, Caro, welcome back!
    Akiko joined my favorites since last season. I especially loved her Tango Ex!! So far, I like both of her programs and wish her the best!
    As for Carolina, I like everything about this season's SP of her except....
    Oh, please do something with your costume, will you?? Since I already noticed it, it totally makes me worried and really distracts. I understand Cavalli is a great designer and everything but Caro is not walking on the catwalk, she has to do spins, spirals for god's sake! Give her something comfortable and of appropriate material for sport.
    And am I the only one who doesn't like her new sitspin position?(broken leg position? what's the name?)
    Joannie looked totally off and angry today... Too bad, but I know she can come back strong in LP!!

    Anyway, this is far more interesting competition than I expected.

    Poor girl was compared to Grace kelly. Oh, the horror of it all.:chorus: Actually, since Grace Kelly was from my home town I think the comparison is a fair one. Kiira is a striking looking lady and a pleasant skater. I prefer Laura, but she is not exactly chopped liver either.
    Gooooo Mirai
