    So when will the list of skaters for the gala be available?

    If it follows other events and past O's it should be the top 5 skaters in each event, plus all Canadian competitors, since the 'home' skaters get to participate, regardless of their result (IIRC).

    There is supposed to be a petition going around to have a special invitation issued to Johnny Weir to skate. Lady Gaga has said she will attend if Johnny skates. I don't know whether it is true, but I think it's a heck of an idea in any case.

    It would be a great idea, and Johnny is better at show skating than he is at competition. I wonder how much NBC will show at the Gala?

    there's also a facebook group, something like "it's not a gala without Johnny's Poker Face", for having him skate in the gala

    OMG, can you imagine if she performed while he did it? That would blow the roof off the place! And Johnny would be in Gaga heaven which would be totally fun to watch.

    I must join that group... I love Johnny Gaga.
    Anyways, does anyone know what happened with the petition? Johnny so deserves to skate, as he WUZROBBED during the actual competition.
