    The next three skaters are:

    Yu/Wang (CHN)
    Hubbell/Hubbell (USA)
    Chock/Zuerlein (USA)

    The zamboni is on the ice now! Go Zamboni Go!

    PJ's Podium Picks:

    1. Weaver/Poje
    2. Ralph/Hill
    3. Hann McCurdy/Coreno

    PJ is predicting a Canadian sweep of the dance podium. They are showing Weaver/Poje's FD from Canadian Nationals now followed by Ralph/Hill's OD from Canadian Nationals.

    The third warmup is now taking to the ice... First to skate in group three of four are Xiaoyang Yu and Chen Wang of China, veteran ice dancers from China that have competed at the last SEVEN Four Continents competitions and have medalled in or won 6 of the last 7 Chinese National Championships. They are both 23 years old. Their best result at this competition was in 2006, where they placed 7th. She has great expression and line! Good coverage of the ice. I like this team! 28.16, 2nd place ahead of Summersett/Gilles, new SEB.

    Madison and Keiffer Hubbell are on the ice representing the United States. Coached by Angelika Krylova and Pasquale Camerlengo, 6th at U.S. Nationals, 4th at the 2009 World Junior Championships. Good tango expression and edges throughout the dance. Wonderful speed and they really appear to be quite a well matched pair - another great brother/sister dance team in the tradition of the Duchesnays... something to strive for at least, right? Very good compulsory dance. 29.76, second place by only 0.13 to Hann-McCurdy/Coreno.

    2009 World Junior Champions Madison Chock and Greg Zuerlein are the ninth team to take the ice for this Tango Romantica. How do the judges do it? SO MANY TANGO ROMANTICAS... and this is only 9/12. Great speed and excellent posture but I notice a good deal of distance between them on some of the holds. Tiny stumble in the second half of their dance, nothing too obvious. Aside from that, another strong performance with lots of expression. I am predicting anywhere from 3rd-5th so far? Who knows? 29.14, new SB, currently in 3rd place behind Hubbell/Hubbell. Very close between the first three teams. Results so far:

    1. Hann-McCurdy/Coreno (CAN)
    2. Hubbell/Hubbell (USA)
    3. Chock/Zuerlein (USA)
    4. Yu/Wang (CHN)
    5. Summersett/Gilles (USA)
    6. Guan/Weng (CHN)
    7. O'Brien/Merriman (AUS)
    8. Bruhns/Lavrik (MEX)
    9. Borounov/Borounov (AUS)

    Only three teams remain in the competition:

    Huang/Zheng (CHN)
    Ralph/Hill (CAN)
    Weaver/Poje (CAN)

    I will be reporting on these three but can't stay up and watch the Pairs or Ladies SPs - I have to work in the morning. :( If anyone can do PbP on these it would be most appreciated!

    Huang and Zheng of China are on the ice now. They are the 2007 Asian Games Silver Medallists. Matching red/black costumes. Unison is really quite strong and flow is very good. Not the same level of expression as Yu/Wang but technically a very sound performance. 30.12, new SB. They take over the lead by 0.23. VERY close near the top.

    Kharis Ralph and Asher Hill looked like horses racing out of the starting gate! Great confidence and speed. Edge quality is very good and expression is stronger than the Chinese team in the lead IMO but not as strong as the Hubbells. Their unison in parts was just impeccable though. 26.57 is their score though... wow, way lower than I was expecting. They are currently in 6th place.

    Now the favourites are on the ice! Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje, the reigning Canadian bronze medallists are off to a great start. They are also coached by Krylova and Camerlengo and you can really notice how both this team and the Hubbells really SOLD their dances. Beautiful edges and line in this dance. Excellent expression and tempo to this dance and unison was very on. Very elegant and technically strong performance. 32.67, new SB and FIRST PLACE.

    Results After The Compulsory Dance:

    1. Weaver/Poje (CAN)
    2. Huang/Zheng (CHN)
    3. Hann-McCurdy/Coreno (CAN)
    4. Hubbell/Hubbell (USA)
    5. Chock/Zuerlein (USA)
    6. Yu/Wang (CHN)
    7. Ralph/Hill (CAN)
    8. Summersett/Gilles (USA)
    9. Guan/Weng (CHN)
    10.O'Brien/Merriman (AUS)
    11. Bruhns/Lavrik (MEX)
    12. Borounov/Borounov (AUS)

    Which means it won't happen...cause she's a jinx

    I just don't like Ralph/Hill. Sorry to say, Hill has big butt, and with his too-tight pants, it didn't help to slim it down at all. And yup, very distracting in a bad way, not pretty to look at in terms of body line.

    Why or why do Kharis and Asher struggle so much in the CD? Oh well, now we get to watch them climb up the standings, like they usually do!
