    I agree. I think she tries too hard to make herself artistic. She should be more natural and relaxed.

    So..it is a fact that Ashley should have been lower, not an opinion? Forgetting your parts of speech?

    good night folks.

    I thought Mirai won tonight but Sasha certainly did well and Rachael too.

    LP's should be a real fight

    I never said I would stop telling it like it is about the judging. I said I would ignore fanatical Sasha fanatics (TM) and I have.

    Everyone being so spread out took some of the suspense out of it but it was still a good one, full of mixed emotions of course.

    Okay, looks like it's between the Top 4:

    Mirai & Sasha virtually tied for 1st place after the short.

    And Rachael only a few points behind, easy to catch up & overtake as the FS is her specialty.

    It's Ashley Wagner I worry about. She's like 7 pts. behind Rach? No too good, this is the thing I was worried about all year, she doesn't have the mindset to win it all. Bombs when the pressure is on (e.g. last year at Nationals bombed the SP, but pulled up in the FS to place 4th, then bombed at Jr. Worlds, which she should have won). These important competitions tell the true story. I don't want anybody on the team that cannot bring it when it counts (aka Alisssa Czisny, which is why I didn't want her on the team).

    My predictions from last year still stand: Rach & Sasha.

    BUT, Mirai has surprised me a bit, she could win it all on Saturday again with all UR jumps. And then go to the Olympics & be dinged, and finished far behind Rachael.

    ALSO, so can Sasha, as her jumps looked wobbly out there, and this was only the SP. I don't know, kinda have a bad feeling about this, judges won't be giving her any gifts (as evidenced here, especially with Mirai in the mix). I just don't know, fellow Sasha Fans. :(

    That said, keep up the eternal hope, and may they ALL skate their very very best on Saturday!!!!!!!!!!

    No edge call for Cohen just some -GOEs on the combo!

    I was lucky enough to see this in HD via Universal Sports on the flatscreen so all the errors were really apparent. Gao slightly stepped/turned out of the second triple of her combination, leaned forward on the flip and had a slight blip going into her footwork I think. Still though, impressive debut!

    Sasha was great but I actually thought it wasn't as memorable as alot of her old programs. She was reserved and had mentioned to Nicks afterwards that her stomach felt weird.

    Joe Jacobsen must be sweating right now....pairs poachers coming from all sides to court Dobbs away, and a final flight skate!

    The night belonged to Mirai. She had sass, spunk, a smile that lit up the arena, speed, and big SOLID jumps! She owned it and was the ONLY lady to throw it all down in completely uninhibited joy.

    Yay Mirai, Gao and Dobbs!!

    Yes. Her fall was worse than Ashley's though. On her combination. And she'd been nailing that all season. It was nice to see Ashley fight throughout. Good for her. That's already a huge difference from last year - shows her mental toughness.

    OMG, I'm so sleepy. Took a break from IN to watch on TV.

    I can relax - Sasha made her comeback and did it with a bang. VOILA. The limits of someone so talented are so far beyond the imagination of cynics. Who knows what will happen Saturday but SHE DID IT.

    Ashley - what a wonderful skater. This is one of my favorite programs of the season - the music is so emotional!

    I still feel the Oly team should be Sasha and Mirai or Ashley. But they have to earn it. What an interesting night it will be. I will definitely have to saddle up with pizza, popcorn and wine!

    I enjoyed several of the younger skaters esp. Becky Bereswill - my goodness, what a patrician beauty, she looks like a young Cindy McCain. (I know that comparison will get me far on GS. ) And the one named Kayla? Caela? age 16. Bebe... oh, please girl listen to Uncle Joesitz and dump the flip!!!! Love you, honey.

    Bedtime for me! Thanks so much to everyone for the companionship... and:

    C ON G R A T U L A T I O N S , S A S H A !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    P R A Y E R S F O R S A T U R D A Y !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm not denying anything. According to Lisa-Marie Allen, it never did happen. Sasha Cohen did not flutz tonight. Too bad.

    I really feel for Alyssa. She is such a beautiful skater, but consistency is just not there. She should just skate her heart out in the free skate. She has nothing to lose. I also really like Caroline. I hope she fixes her high kick so she could come up strong in the next Olympic cycle. Ashley is a fighter so I never count her out. The competition isn't over yet. Mirai & Sasha had great skates, but they need to stay focused. And Rachael is such a solid skater. I hope everyone has no regrets on Saturday! And thank you guys for the reports!!!!

    Nagasu, Cohen and Flatt in a virtual tie at the top. Wagner about 7 pts behind. I dunno...can Wagner catch them up to snag a spot on the Oly team?

    Does everyone agree that the race for the two spots has been reduced to these Four, and the rest of the competitors are just fighting for 3rd place at this point?
