    Domnina is unrecognizable without make up.

    Love the Firebird costumes... this team reminds me of a present day Bestemianova and Boukine or Klimova and Ponamorenko. Just great! But what is going on with Domnina and Shabalin? This doesn't look like they've made any real progress - straight line footwork is a mess IMO. Sorry, just calling it how I see it.

    Firebird never been used in ice dancing. K/N are the first with this music and I think it's good for them. Can't wait to see the whole program

    Looks like K/N created my new favorite program of the season. And Dom/Shabs look much much better.

    What I ment was that Lysacek is using it in his SP and Yukari Nakano in her FS this year...

    One of my favourite performances of The Firebird was Toller Cranston's version of it. Very, very musical and expressive. Tonia Kwiatkowski used it in 1995 and 1996 as her short program and it was a huge success for her as well - in 1995 she beat Kwan and Bobek (both were huge stars and favourites at the time) in the short program at Nationals.

    Domnina & Shabalin look better then at Nationals, but it's still not great especially the twizels were , well at least they are now a bit faster.

    As for Khokhlova & Novitski's new program, well it's better then the red mess from the begining of this season. I actually liked the last run a lot. But someone should explain them that throwing your leg above your head 10 times in a program every season is getting kinda boring.
