Ditto what I said about Oda's program, I say the exact same thing about this young Russian's as well.
See below (cut & pasted):
Can't deny Oda is the best one out there thus far, but as much as I like all his elements, I don't like the program nor the music or the costume, et al.
I absolutely loooooooooove his FS, but not his SP.
Good job, Oda, good job!
Good job Sergei. Best I have seen him. Oda's score will be difficult to beat.
Wow oda was great! Even without listening to sound!I loved his expressions before straight line
Voronov skates good outside russia, lol!
Sergei Voronov, RUS
3lz? good also
combo spin interesting positions, light applause
again applause for circ footwork into flying sitspin ( i note these light spatterings of applause during programs, cuz the crown is pretty silent most of the time here)
he nailed that program! I liked it better than Oda's actually. though Oda's jumps were really PERFECT and Voronov's merely very good. Very crisp and fluid skating, only thing lacking is that star quality to really relax and project out to audience
81.4 - he is thrilled
Sergey Voronov. Great jumps. 4T-3T, 3Lz-3T, 3F. Some Russian crowd out there in the audience. Well done! A bit slow on footwork. Looks like he likes the program. I can see improvement in choreograohy, facial expressions.
81.40. Into 2nd place. Looks happy. Well deserved.
Evan will have to be on to keep up with Oda and Sergei. GO Evan!!!
Wow, I love this FRA man's program ~ choreography, style, flair, passion, drama, fluidity, et al.
Too bad about the horrible fall on the opening 3L & the turnout on the 3A, also I think he doubled a jump?
Yet despite all that I enjoyed his performance/program. And it doesn't hurt that he looks like Tom Cruise (same height even, lol), but he makes his height work for him by showing refinement, clean cut lines, etc.
At least Ponsero is consistent ...at screwing it
hate his costume!
Ponsero's fall looked like it hurted (fell with his legs crossed).
Looking at that jump in the air, you just knew he was not going to land it...
Yannick Ponsero FRA
light elegant upbeat spanish music
3lz? horrible lean and SPLAT
3a almost, step out
3s? ack i need commentary
what is with that costume??
he was probably unnerved after that bad fall, did an admirble job holding it together
pained expression at program's end, probably not injured but that fall surely didn't feel good. nice flair and body movement in this program, it's a bit odd, but very pleasant

Yanick Ponsero. Horrific fall on 4T, 3A step out, 3S. Light hearted program. I've never been his fan. He looks very dissapointed and it seems like he has pain on elbow. He cut it! I can see blood in there..oh no..
Not a bad program from Lysacek, and he skated it well.
Those arms just made me dizzy... he flapped like he didn't care
Sorry, first time seeing this program, and have to say that I don't like Evan's "Firebird" at all (look to Yukari Nakano to see how it is done, Evan).
And the horrible frou-frou womanly feathers on his wrists have got to go! He looks like a long black spider out there, a female one. Maybe Johnny Weir can get away with something like this, but not you, Evan. Please, do away with the effeminate look. Yuck!
