Ok, for a moment I thought I was going insane because all of the talk "Will Sasha compete at US Nationals" but I guess I'm not losing it (yet) it saw it too :D:D:D

cowlick feather on hat rather comic when it stands up straight dureing dance
all in black, both of them-nice
helicopter not all that lined up
timing wasn't all I would like-off ice time shows, perhaps? Score high.

Some leg line issues, particularly on helicopter. rather untangoish-being brother and sister is not easy. This cut of music doesn't help, either.

20 Ekaterina BOBROVA / Dmitri SOLOVIEV RUS
All black, only short black gloves
Working hard on the leg line. Slower than K/N or K/K noticeably. Too much work, perhaps.
33.33 SB very good for them, into third
21 Alla BEKNAZAROVA / Vladimir ZUEV UKR
He in tails, she in red sparkly bra hooked to waist over illusion with v shaped inset. Effect is somehow more hula than tango. Not up to previous 3 couples, but not bad. Helicopter slow, low legline.

Interview with K/N:
They were in good mood before the dance and they hope thay had succeeded in showing that. The numerous Russian flags in the audience helped them very much; they felt the energy of the audience and the positive energy there.
They will debut their new FD thay hope the audience likes it.
Novitski was asked where do they expect to place, He said: "That's an excellent questin! We hope we skate our best and the way we can and the else we leave to the judges to decide. "
WOOOOOOOW to DomShabs score!
kerrs ahead of P/B ?!
Doris, did D/S deserve that score? Is this a case performance v. competition? Would they have a comparable score v. the North American teams?
Judging is just disgusting as D/S were far from that score they got...
Judges made them winning this title today,bec here the mistakes not as visible as in OD or FD (quoting HUN forum).
Btw Domnina should learn to dress up...
