    Can't believe D/D are ahead with that...

    Jessica DUBE / Bryce DAVISON CAN
    SP Requiem For a Dream by Clint Mansell

    Don't like this music, and there's way too much of it this year.

    Black and silver costumes, very nice.

    Nice twist, decent height
    She singles her salchow
    Great pair spin-change of direction on one foot, 2nd change, fastest at the end
    3loop throw-she lands close to the boards, has to distort leg, holds the edge though
    Change hand death spiral
    F/w fast, quite musical
    Score 57.90

    Jessika appeared a bit stiff. like she was nervous... But I loved their program and Bryce in it!
    They haven't done SBS 3S and still in 1st place?!

    Beautiful program from M/T. Such a shame for her hands down on 3 Throw.

    Some glitches through M/T's program, it was way better at TEB, but I still liked it.
    Don't know if they'll outscore D/D though.

    ETA: they did, by quite a lot 65 and change

    This is EXACTLY something what a casual fan will never understand. Even figure skating fans don't get it, so why would someone who watches only big events? In this sense COP sucks totally.

    Maria MUKHORTOVA / Maxim TRANKOV RUS
    SP Appassionata by Secret Garden

    Costumes would work better for Spartacus-dark brown, light brown

    3Tw really nice
    3T landed, landing could be better by her (near boards)
    nice moves in the field here
    3Loop throw. she pitches forward, 2 hands down
    Dog pee spiral into death spiral with change of hands might lose the 2nd rev-it was wrenchy and slow at the end
    Lift OK
    F/w nice, I like it
    Pair spin-he put 2nd foot down between spins. Looks like it doesn't matter, though.

    65.80

    Ughhh Jess!! Well now they are going to be fighting for third place. Can they even make the final if they finished third?

    S/S clearly the best program (worst costume), i also loved M/T program as well. not as clean as the germans.

    Aliona SAVCHENKO / Robin SZOLKOWY GER
    SP Send in the Clowns performed by Danny Wright

    Clown suits & makeup intact

    Standing ovation

    Huge 3flip throw (very high)
    3Ts
    Besti's into 3Tw
    Spins off a bit especially at end
    Pair spin travels at recenter, nice positions
    death spiral
    Complex, interesting f/w done with decent speed
    Lift has ugly position, but she actually gets thrown upward on the rotate out dismount.

    Should be first, just how much?

    74.16 SB

    Is it too much to ask for S/S to ditch that make up. That's the only bad thing about this program (the costume almost seems acceptable)

    Ok, now off to watch roller dance and its voidy music cuts.

    Yes D/D can make the final with a 3rd here but they would have to outscore Z/Z,s total. Which after that short is looking less likely! D/D look like they are headed the same way as last year when they came out ok at the 1st of the season and then started dropping off instead of building their way upward. Too bad I was really hoping they would only improve this year as the year went on.

    Thanks for the information! Their performance level is much higher than it was last year though so I am going to hope that is was a stupid mental mistake and that they kick butt in the long

    Wow, what a divide between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd . . . almost a ten points difference between each placement. Almost makes the LP seem anticlimactic.

    Don't forget the TEB, where the german had an advantage and dropped lots of points in LP, hence anything is possible. hopefully S/S will have a clean program.
