    Oh how I love the music of Madame Butterfly, brings back wonderful memories of Kristi Yamaguchi skating to it in Japan one year during the World Pros (she lost to Midori Ito that year btw), but my it was one for the ages.

    Okay, back to this very young couple from JPN, her split in that split-double twist was first rate! However, she fell on their sbs jump & the throw jump, and he also fell on their next sbs jump. Feel so sorry for them because it was in front of their home country. Still, the qualities they already have so young should take them far in the future!

    He fell on a lift dismount, but she landed on her feet. I hate it when that happens in pairs.

    Omg, I feel so sorry for this couple, so many mistakes, especially when the lift where he was carrying her down the ice, I thought for sure we were going to see a scary accident when he slipped off his edge (shades of Dube & Davison), but thank goodness they managed to save that fall. Too bad about the ending spins, it looks like they just gave up.

    Ah, this Canadian team scared me a little. Luckily the fall on the lift wasn't too bad. Weird mistake on the pair spin, too.

    T/T had such a good junior grand prix this season, i guess the transition did not help. Good luck with JGPFs T/T

    She didn't look comfortable in warm-up nor before they stepped out to skate, so their mistakes (Lawrence/Sweigers) didn't come as that much of a surprise. But I hate pairs falls. I'm way too paranoid to handle that. The pairs spin just came to a complete halt. Other mistakes too.

    83.45 - 1st/1st

    Too bad for the Canadian team. They have some really nice elements in their program. Hope they skate better the next time.

    Thank goodness they were alright after that fall. Lots of mistakes but I like this couple. They had some nice qualities to their skating and I thought the program was well choreographed. They just need to practice more. lol

    Few mishaps here & there by this CAN pair, but not bad at all, though I feel this cutesie pie routine is a little bit too immature for them. JMHO.
