    Somebody has floated a balloon down onto the ice ...

    Why butcher "Yesterday"? Chan is still a lovely, remarkable skater. The balloon moment made me smile. Was that cued (I'd assume so, but Rod Black et al aren't acting like it).

    But nice to see the school figures he did at the start. And the random balloon?
    Yes, figures were fantastic to see ... I always imagined that he was schooled in those ...

    I don't mind all the horrible, wretched things Patrick Chan says. But skating to Michael Bolton? Love is over!

    That performance is in tribute to his late coach Osborne Colson - who always wanted to see him skate at the Olympics. As for the balloon, that would be pretty impossible to plan it that well. I think it was just a random moment - that turned out perfectly!

    The fact that Patrick Chan can't even stay on his feet in an exhibition skate says it all.

    I think that proves that Johnny Weir should have been there instead.

    I second the dislike of that Michael Bolton version. I wish they could have found a better version because the tune is wonderfully difficult to dance to

    Your logic escapes me.

    Which is probably why the figures were included; if there was a coach that would have known the benefit of teaching figures to a skater in terms of edge development ... that would have been Colson.

    He did stay on his feet - perhaps you should watch more carefully next time. S/S just had a problem on a throw - does that mean that they shouldn't be there either?

    There are about a billion better versions of Yesterday. I mean, how about just the original? Is Colson a great big fan of Michael Bolton or something? In that case, is it really worth doing a tribute to him?

    Robin and Aliona are hot. Very good performance - I really do hope they go to worlds. A class act.
