That was a very entertaining OD competition! I enjoyed so many of the dances. The Reeds did a nice job in front of the home crowd, good for them. Loved the Kerrs, they were rockin' the place! Of course, D/W blew me away as always. They just keep on improving and I'm loving those killer scores! Again, just in a league of their own here. This OD is really something special.
Go Meryl and Charlie!
What on earth is wrong with Summersett/Gilles? Is there an injury or illness? I didn't expect them to be in medal contention but I also didn't expect them to be last after two portions of the event either.
I usually love the Kerr's (well I still do) but the verdict is still out (for me) on their OD. It's entertaining (as mishieru07 said when are Sinead and John not entertaining) but it still feels more like an exhibition than a OD. Maybe it's the music or some of the sound effects. I'm very interested to see how K&K's OD holds up against the OD's of P&B (which IMO is just as much fun but a better competitive piece) and F&S (another excellent OD IMO).
I just feel their past three OD's (especially the Scottish folk and last years Swing) were better. Maybe I'll feel differently as the season progresses.
I guess that does explain things as I didn't realize S&G's OD was supposed to be a Peruvian folk dance. Only the music hints at Peruvian folk. It's a shame about the OD as I love their FD but even skated well I don't think it's going to pull them up all that much if at all. S&G already have too big a deficit to come back from.
I also like C&Z but I agree with you about their Afro-Brazilian dance. Watching their performance at CoC, I thought it looked like the type of Latin dances the U.S. dancers used to use for their FD's back in the 90's. And unfortunately I didn't mean that in a good way.
