    You are right. Mirai actually looked upset. Like she was about to have another nationals moment

    ITA. There was zero performance or interpretation in that program. If you're going to skate to Carmen, you need to become Carmen. Flirt with the audience! She was stone-faced the whole time. But at least that's easy to fix!

    Mirai didn't get one Triple downgraded, she should celebrate that. I think the Double downgrades are easier to fix.

    All the flutzers got a big "e" - strict tech caller.

    In China Mirai outperformed Joannie and had much bigger crowd responses to both programs. In fact she was the favorite with the Chinese audience

    I wonder if something was bugging her tonight. She was very flat

    I'm so disappointed. This national favoritism should go away, DEFINITELY. How come Rochette's PCS improved from CoC?

    Yu-na's PCS went down from 66 to 61, and rightly so because of her worse performance. Still, some poster even created a thread to claim that Yu-na's PCS was overscored.

    People who say it's CoP being the evil of this sport should realize national favoritism is the bigger enemy. Lacoste and Phaneuf did not deserve higher PCS than Mirai.

    Protocols. Mirai had two UR's and two e's.

    The Rochette's loop wasn't UR. It's also worth noting that the her choreography was her highest PCS, which was accurate I thought. It's a very well constructed program.

    Czisny got hammered for that second triple loop. Underrotated, sequenced AND a fall.

    Joannie was better at SC than she was at COC

    I was gonna say that. :( Usually I don't agree when people say that - sometimes I know it's presumptuous to say but I sometimes think people don't hear minor melodies and counter rhythms and stuff and notice that elements and sequences are placed to align with them even if the particular skater isn't too musical.

    But in this case I have to say I have no idea why that Carmen noise is playing in the background - it has no relationship to anything Mirai is doing and IMO detracts from her skating, which is quite good. It could be any music.

    They didn't get higher PCS:

    Mirai: 48.80
    Lacoste: 46.80
    Phaneuf: 46.00

    But let's just continue to throw out the "National Bias" card with false statements.

    Neither got higher PCS in the FS, though I do think Phaneuf still was overscore there a little.

    With these results, it looks like a tie between Flat, Czisny and Akiko. But I believe Akiko with the one win will break that tie.

    Kim
    Ando
    Rochette
    Leonova
    Wagner
    Akiko

    There really was no choreography in her Carmen. The music section that Katarina used for her enticing posing section was where Mirai basically stroked around in and out of her jumps.

    IMHO, Mao is the skater the comes the closest to matching her footwork to the rhythm of her music, especially in the Masquerade.

    Leonova makes the cut? Yay!
