    When they were changing directions, she slipped away and he had to pull her back by hand. Is this the problem, although I cannot see why it would cause an invalid element.. What a shame, I love P&T!

    As far as I know, this is the rendition by David Garrett, from his last album..
    I also quite dislike the ending, it builds up and up but all of a suddent fades out with an abrupt end without a real highlight.. The music edit should be fixed!

    I can guess why you say so by looking at your signature photo

    OMG! Masha and Max will be in the final group for the LP . . . I'm SO HAPPY for them! I them SO MUCH!! What a thrilling turn-around from last season; they've been on such an impressive high lately!

    Also congrats to Shen & Zhao and Aliona & Robin! It seems like Shen/Zhao never missed a beat from 2007 Worlds; they've picked up right where they left off, which is so amazing! I'd love to see these 3 teams make up the podium here. I'm really looking forward to the LP!

    Imho,Xue SHEN has the most incredible body language of any female skater since Michelle Kwan.

    A choreographer can give a skater arm movements but cannot give the skater body language. That's a natural gift, and with it, Xue draws one .into the program

    Ditto that. The woman is mesmerizing. I am so glad they are back skating, at least for this season.

    As to K&S's score, when every element is iffy, the GOE of every element will be low. And because the problem is spread throughout the program, the PCS suffers, too.

    As my grandma used to say, "A mickle & a mickle makes a muckle."

    My mother's version would be, "Save the pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves."

    In recent politics, "A billion here and a billion there and soon you're talking about real money."

    Little Stuff adds up to a big difference.

    Yes and our Mrs. Zhao would be the first to agree with you.

    I love those quotes!
    Well I can see how negative GOE's all over the place contributed to a lower score but I still think it's too low and I am still very pissed off. I hope they'll prove what they are worth in the LP..

    doris ...my mother's ( and her mother's before her) version was a little different :
    " Every mickle makes a muckle , as the old woman said a'ter she spit in the ocean"

    Still, what a pleasure to see such a well skated event that the result really is founded the quality of what everyone did rather than who managed not to have an utter disaster !
