    There's a rumor Nickelback will perform, too. If that happens, VANOC will go down in history as the worst Olympic organizers ever.

    I feel sorry for the mods here sometimes ... they must have nerves of steel.

    ETA (7:57PM):
    Changed the link and only ten of the performances are up. The rest, I assume, will come later.

    Like I said somewhere else, please americans, email NBC. I did it days ago to tell them how stupid they are. Give examples. NBC is not showing Shen and Zhao, I saw it partly on crappy laptop. They have the best Olympic gold story of the games outside of the joro thing, anyway. Well, someone tell me please if Xhen and Zhao are uploaded somewhere.

    Bob Kostas has got to go...Sandra/Scott try to be so PC I yearn for Dick Button to return, but thank God Peggy Flemming quit...such a dull princess...

    NBC really had no intention of showing the Gala. They just stuck it inbetween long segments of bobsleding and whatever. I didn't see Shen and Shou nor Mao thanks to NBC. How in the world do you let them know their coverage was so abysssmal. I know, don't buy any products from their advertisers. I'm really mad.

    NBC is deaf to what its audience wants. There's a reason why it's the 4th place network (well, really, 5th if you count Univision, the Spanish-only network). They've made disastrous choices one after another. If their executive decisions were represented in a figure skating program, it'd be skated by Carolina Kostner. We don't even have to start a boycott of NBC, people are already doing that on their own.

    So exciting that Mirai got to be in the gala. Still needs to work a bit on her expression. It's absolutely wonderful when it's there, which is usually, but sometimes she forgets... She was so adorable though.

    Yuna simply sublime as always.

    Joannie - I happened to love what she was wearing. She looked great. Loved her skating tonight, too.

    Miki's program was very powerful. But her costume looked like a strange version of Snow White too me.


    Shen/Zhao and V/M were the absolute highlight for me. Damn, those pairs are good. For me, both are in a class of their own, just like Yuna in the women's... I actually started clapping without realizing it at when Shen/Zhao stopped skating even though I watched by myself.

    Can't wait for the Nam/Nathan Chen showdown in 2018

    I was actually slightly disappointed by her gala performance ... It wasn't even the popping of one of the jumps. The program itself was .. meh. I was hoping for it to be on the level of, but not like Michelle Kwan's Fields of Gold or Shizuka Arakawa's Ave Maria, but it is not to be ... for me at least.

    Love her earrings though.
