    Ice Dance Free Dance

    Why is no one watching?? The first group is over and no one's commenting- I guess I will for a while, only I'm no expert.

    Happy to report that Estonians Mallory/Rand set a new personal best and are leading the competition with 79.44 in FD and overall score of 155.93!

    Ukranians Beknazarova/Zuev

    Not feeling their performance, unimpressive music choice. Looked slow to my untrained eye, especially the spins. Second step sequence was shaky, they looked tired and bored of this dance. Finish looking displeased.

    I don't know, they didn't rock my boat.

    FD Score: 79.45
    Overall Score: 162.82

    Russians Bobrova/Soloviev

    Mistake on twizzles- out of sync and he couldn't grab hold of his blade, this won't go without punishment... Overall an OK attempt by the russians. Skated to a tacky operatic version of Albinonis Adagio, which in my book is a crime against a masterpiece, so... Maybe unobjective on my behalf- didn't like them.

    And of course the JUDGES love them.

    Hungarians Hoffmann/Zavozin

    Dear god- hip-hop... With no lyrics it becomes so painfully obvious how simple and inferior to classical music it is... Ok here come the lyrics- Pussy Cat Dolls and some other blah... Again not an enjoyable program for yours truly, but the commentators say it was a clean skate with a clear message- everyone to the dance floor. Whatever...

    Free Dance Score: 81.66

    The French Carron/Jones

    Oh my another Albinoni Adagio and the same Italian baritone-tenor duet (or quintet, can't tell)... Twizzles not clean. I can't stand the exaggerated vibratos the singers are doing! This is the kind of cover that puts ordinary people off opera... Oh! Nasty fall by Jones! Their done, she puts on a happy face. Lloyd is dead serious. They get a sympathy vote from me!

    Great Britain Kerr/Kerr

    Interesting opening pose. Long-long intro to Linkin Park song. Ok, he's wearing torn jeans and a t-shirt, he's the rocker, but she's in angelic white- I don't quite get what story they're portraying. Really cool lift and great musical fit on a culmination. SHE LIFTS HIM!!?? Rad! Another beautiful lift. Not a clean skate though, the twizzles lost balance, even I saw that. But the commentators are pointing out their insecurity. But the lifts were very original and beautiful to watch. Deduction. Probably for holding the lift over the 12 second mark.

    Apparently he's a weak man and she's an angle coming to save him

    Italians Cappellini/Lanotte

    A gloomy theme... Don't think their appearance translates the story (if there is one)- a simple but interesting dress she's wearing, but the cut is more like a practice dress than a dramatic FD one, and what's up with the office dress code Lanotte is portraying? But they are a handsome couple, you got to love her perfect legs, but I don't like it when the stockings are semi-covering the boot- make up your mind, either you cover em' or you don't. A good performance, the commentators say it was flawless, didn't take my breath away, but what do I know...

    He's the addict, she's the drug- that's the story.
