    I hate when real life interferes with skating competitions....I can't watch this live either. It's a friend's birthday tonight but I would much rather stay home and watch skating. Does that make me a bad person?

    I wish there were three spots. I feel mean rooting for W/P or C/P over the other. W/P have the better program, but I see more potential from C/P. I want both to go.

    More potential to do well at the Olympics, or in the future?
    I also wish there were 3 spots...in all events. My heart broke for Craig and Meagan this morning, even though I wanted Annabelle and Cody to get the second spot.

    So do I! Seems like we've got a little W/P cheer section here.

    Rebecca Fowler / Iliya Koreshev

    Engaging beginning, but slow. Twizzles in attitude position to start things off. Deduction for slip (fall, I think, but I missed it). Step sequence is extremely slow. Very simple footwork. He's singing along. Cool transition lift. Did I mention that they were slow? Because they are. Enjoyable, playful, though. If this is the worst free dance of the night, it's gonna be a great night.

    Sarah Lysne / Christopher Steeves: Selections from Astor Piazzola

    Melodramatic beginning. Powerful presence. Okay combo lift. Twizzles out of sync on second set; first set with leg extended. Curve lift sorta scary (very fast, little wild). Spin slowed in the end. Again, choreography quite simple. Not bad, but interest wavered a bit. They're both very happy with how the skated.

    Sophie Knippel / Benjaman Westenberger: Schindler's List

    This music makes me cry. Nice combo spin – beautiful position from her. Okay combo lift. Good choreography in circ.steps, but mediocre execution. Transitions/linking footwork isn't great. Couldn't tell twizzle synchro – he went out of the camera shot (first bit was a bit off). Don't think they're gonna get high levels in general. Laboured curve lift – I don't like that they rushed the position changes. Doesn't quite capture the depths of the music, but I've choreographed this piece in my mind whenever it comes on my iPod, so take this with a grain of salt. Or slab of shale.

    Sarah Arnold / Justin Trojek: “Don't Cry for Me Argentina”

    Opened with terrific speed. Solid combo lift. Oh, these vocals are atrocious. Turn them off now. Nice skating. Mirrored twizzles (which I don't ever like). Oh goodness, the singer is awful. Nice step sequences. Transitions in spin not good. Lifts well timed with musical highlights to give sense of power. She likes the audience size (in KnC)

    Megan Wilson / Marcus Connolly: “Meditation by Massenet”

    Odd beginning. Twizzles not done well. Lovely rotaitonal lift. Okay dance spin. Okay curve lift. Okay combo lift. Boring dance.
